The only thing more exciting than one Derby in a week is when there are two Derbies in the same week. And that is happening this week. In addition to our mens’ Derby on Saturday, Milan Ladies are playing their Derby tonight against Inter Femminile. Whereas the mens teams drew back in November, Milan Ladies have a loss to avenge from their home derby, also in November.
|There's only one side to be on, but there are two red and black teams to support|
Milan Ladies have the misfortune to be facing the lesser Baresi’s daughter (Franco Baresi’s niece) once again, who is captain of Inter Femminile. But that won’t stop them from fighting for the win like people do only in a derby. Additionally, they’ll play a rare night time game, with kickoff at 9pm local time. They are coming off of a win and two draws, so will be especially hungry for the victory.
|The last Derby didn't end well for our Ladies, let's support them tonight for the win!|
This derby won’t be shown on TV, but the Milan Ladies were on TV over the past weekend, with a second visit to the Calcio Champagne show. You can find all of the video clips and photos on Twitter @MilanLadies. You can support the women by following their accounts and send your messages of support to the team.

Maybe someday they'll also get to play football on TV, too
For the mens’ Derby, we have to wait until Saturday to see how it plays out. But if you want to know how the women of Milan represent the red and black jersey, follow @MilanLadies on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook for all of the details. Let’s hope that the women can avenge their November Derby loss and set a good precedent for the men on Saturday. Because the only thing better than a Double Derby week is a Double Derby win.
Forza Milan Ladies!
