Inter Milan v AC Milan
Sunday night in Serie A features one of the stand out matches of any season.
Inter Milan host AC Milan at their shared ground of the San Siro and it should be a fascinating game.
AC Milan spent heavily in the summer but trail their great rivals Inter by seven points.
The Milan derby is a battle for the Champions League positions
The Rossoneri clearly banked on reaching the Champions League next season with all their summer spending.
As it stands, AC Milan are seventh and are some way off securing a Champions League spot.
Meanwhile, Inter are five points behind runaway leaders Napoli and under Luciano Spalletti look primed for a Scudetto challenge.
Inter Milan confirm attendance record
Ahead of the Milan derby on Sunday night Inter Milan have confirmed that they have received gate receipts of 4.8 million euros.
This is a record for Italian football.
The previous record for gate receipts in Italian football was also held by Inter Milan for a game against Juventus in October 2015.
Serie A v the Premier League and La Liga
Illustrating the financial strength of the Premier League, Arsenal secure 4.8 million euros every match day for games at the Emirates in England’s top flight.
Real Madrid secure 4.9 million euros for each La Liga match at the Bernabeu.
Nevertheless, this undoubtedly shows how excitement is building for Serie A in a season where the likes of Napoli and Lazio are really beginning to make things happen.
Some fans have reacted to the news by demanding that AC Milan and Inter Milan build their own stadiums.
Whilst San Siro is an iconic European ground, Juventus are clearly leading the way in Italy thanks to owning their own stadium.
