Beckham and Mourinho unite on betliveTV

As thoughts of Monday and five more boring days at work start slipping into your mind on Sunday evening don't worry, the weekend still has one highlight and what's more it has all the characters to be memorable!

The Milan derby is being shown live on betliveTV for free on your PC at 19:30 and with Jose Mourinho leading Inter and David Beckham starring for AC Milan, not to mention the cameos from Ibrahimovic, Ronaldinho and Pirlo, it really is essential viewing.

The massive match from the San Siro is the highlight of any Serie A season but with the English flavour that Mourinho (an honourary Englishman by all accounts) and Beckham bring it takes on extra meaning.

And for Becks it could be the difference between living in the fashion capital of the world or heading back to the most glamourous city in America, depending on whether he can spur AC on to an unlikely win against the league leaders.

Inter find themselves six points clear at the top of Serie A with over half of the season gone and after making an inauspicious start to his reign, Jose Mourinho is once again proving to be 'The Special One'.

The strength of Jose's outfit, like it was at Chelsea, is based on turning home games into matches that are either won or drawn but never lost while their defence has conceded the fewest goals in the top flight.

But titles aren't just won on defence and in Zlatan Ibrahimovic Inter are blessed with one of the most gifted strikers around.

The Swedish hot-shot has managed 14 goals so far this season and is a great bet at 5/1 to score the first of the game on Sunday, while 5/4 about him scoring at anytime could be a banker.

As for Beckham, he has been in magnificent form since joining AC Milan from LA Galaxy on loan and if he was to notch another goal (5/1 to score anytime) against their fierce rivals it could see him make the switch to Italy a more permanent thing.

It is the type of game that Becks could thrive in as well. It should be tight for the full ninety minutes and it could be settled with a single flash of brilliance - cue a trademark free kick!

However, despite Milan traditionally being the dominant force, with the form Inter are carrying it would be foolish to back anything but a home win at 13/10, indeed it is probably only because this is a derby that Inter's odds are so long.

On the other betting markets there looks to be great value to be had with the 7/4 about Inter managing to keep yet another clean sheet at home.

It is a job that looks slightly easier given the absence of the injured Kaka and although everyone will be desperate for 'Golden Balls' to supply the Midas touch it could be more likely that it will be a 'Special' day for Mourinho.
