Derby Build Up: Prince and Pirlo Return

Without a doubt the most anticipated games of any Milanista or Interista season has to be the Derby Della Madoninna and it is just two weeks away.

While Milan travel down South to a Palermo side eager to make up for their 7-0 drubbing two weeks ago the Rossoneri's cross town rivals will be hosting possible relegation side Lecce. Despite these weekend games in between the big night both sides have had plenty going on.

Leonardo's side managed to pull off a surprising 3-2 win in Munich after falling 3-0 behind on aggregate. This win saw the Beneamata side progress to the quarter finals of the Champions League due to the away goals rule.

After losing the first leg 1-0 at home and seeing themselves fall 2-0 to Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena the Nerazzurri looked dead and buried and well away from a come back. But as we know football is unpredictable and the Serpenti pulled a magnificent come back.

This will undoubtedly leave them well and truly confident for the tie ahead while have received good news too.
