Shevchenko: Milan are favourites

Andriy Shevchenko has backed Milan to win Saturday's potentially title-deciding Derby della Madonnina against Inter at San Siro.

Milan have a two-point lead at the top of Serie A and a defeat would see Inter overtake them and gather yet more momentum ahead of the final seven games of the campaign.

Speaking to Sky Italia, Shevchenko said: "I think that it's a decisive game for the Scudetto. Both teams are looking to win it and I think that Milan can do it.

"Milan will miss Ibra a lot but what counts is the collective. Whoever has prepared best will win the derby.

"Milan are playing well and I see them as favourites," he concluded.
