The UEFA Champions League semifinal round gets underway this week, and Wednesday offers plenty of excitement as the Milan Derby finds its way into the tournament.

The first leg kicks off on Wednesday at 3 p.m. ET.

Odds, picks & predictions

AC Milan: +210
Draw: +215
Inter Milan: +145

Moneyline pick: Draw +215

The two sides last met in Serie A play on February 5 with Inter Milan earning a 1-0 victory. It was payback for the 3-2 loss AC Milan handed them back on September 3 as the two teams split the results in the regular season.

This will be the first meeting between them in Champions League play since the 2004-05 quarterfinals, which saw AC Milan move on with a 5-0 aggregate after the second leg was called off in the 72nd minute due to crowd issues.

Inter currently sit in fourth place in Serie A, with AC Milan in fifth place just two points behind their rivals. Both teams are fighting for a UCL spot in next year’s tournament while also keeping their eyes on the prize as they begin their semifinal tie.

This one just feels too close to call. Inter have won their last five matches across all competitions, while AC have gone unbeaten in their last nine, which includes a 4-0 rout of this season’s Serie A champions Napoli. They’re fairly evenly matched, and I’m backing a draw in the first leg although I don’t think it’ll be scoreless.
