Allegri: 'Derby more important for Inter'

Massimiliano Allegri is not afraid of the Scudetto showdown. “The derby is more important for Inter than it is for Milan.”

The Rossoneri have seen their lead at the top of the table sliced to just two points and could be overtaken if they lose next Saturday.

“The derby is more important for Inter than it is for Milan,” Allegri told Sky Sport Italia.

“We already won in our last meeting, so a draw could even be enough for us.

“If I was told we could lose the derby, but win the Scudetto, then I'd happily take that. In any case, I want to win both.”

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored the winner when these sides met earlier this season, but will be suspended for the April 2 match.

“It's a shame that Ibrahimovic cannot take part in the game, as we could've done with his quality.”
