Clarence Seedorf and Andrea Pirlo feel that if Milan triumph in the Derby della Madonnina then they will go on to win the Scudetto.
Milan have a two-point lead on Inter and have been top of Serie A for much of the season.
"Inter are a very strong team," Seedorf explained. "It's up to us to show with facts that we are in a position to win the title.
"We have worked well up until now. Every game has its own story. The past is the past. We are two days away from the derby.
"I believe that it will be a great game for Italian football and for everyone who follows our League abroad."
Pirlo is also confident that Milan will deliver a knock out blow to their title rivals.
"We feel very good," he told UEFA.com. "We're top of the table, a few points ahead, though we know we still have plenty of difficult matches ahead.
"We are taking it game by game without paying too much attention to the objective we have, which is still a long way away."
