Inter Milan scored twice in the first 11 minutes of the first leg of the Champions League semi-final against AC Milan to take a 2-0 lead in the second leg on Tuesday.

Inter are the nominal home side for Tuesday’s tilt, but the two perennial rivals play their home games at the same stadium: the San Siro.

(3 p.m. ET. CBS)

This game could play into Milan’s hands.

While Inter are the more experienced, stoic side, AC Milan are a younger, more dynamic side who have to rely on being able to clear a two-goal deficit in 90 minutes, especially as they will be attacking from the start of the match.

Breaking through the Inter defense won’t be easy, but Milan (especially with Rafael Leao returning) have the scoring prowess to put pressure on Inter’s backline.
