The Lega Serie A is considering moving the kickoff of the derby between Inter Milan and AC Milan to a Monday evening.

This according to Italian news outlet Calcio e Finanza. The outlet reports that the league could make the change in order to accommodate the Rossoneri’s Europa League commitments.

Inter and Milan face off in the second Milan derby of the season next month.

Unlike the last couple of campaigns, which have seen the Nerazzurri face each other a whopping nine times in total, this season will see just two meetings between the city rivals, both in Serie A.

Per the existing league schedule, the match will take place on the evening of Sunday, June 21st.

This would reflect the usual scheduling of the derby.

The most high-profile match of any given round of fixtures tends to get the billing of the late kickoff on a Sunday evening.

And a derby between the Nerazzurri and the Rossoneri would certainly be that.

For that reason, it is normally the case that Inter and Milan meet late on a Sunday evening, more often that not.

Lega Serie A Consider Moving Inter Vs AC Milan Derby Clash To Monday Evening

This time around, however, there could be a reason to move the derby.

AC Milan are still in the Europa League.

Whilst Inter disappointingly exited from the Champions League last week, their city rivals did move on in their own European competition.

And the Rossoneri drew fellow Serie A team Roma as their opponents for the quarterfinals of that competition.

The two ties between the Italian rivals will take place on Thursday, April 11th and April 18th.

This means that the Rossoneri will play the derby between the two legs of that quarterfinal tie against the Giallorossi.

And, if the match against Inter does go ahead on Sunday, April 21st as planned, it will mean that Milan play the match three days after the first leg against Roma.

Therefore, C&F report, the Lega Serie A are considering bumping the derby back by one day to the following Monday, April 22nd.
