Leao Leads the Way in Thrilling Derby


Milan picked where they left off last spring, beating Inter V Madonnina derby For the second time in a row and passes Nerazzurri in the first division. today my derby It was awesome football Which Milan won 3-2 as he benefited from two goals and one assist for Rafael Liao.

Inter advanced with Marcelo Brozovic and managed to reduce the difference with Edin Dzeko after Milan scored three goals in a row, but hit Mike Minnan’s wall when they tried to rebalance the result.

But apart from the winners and losers, the Milan derby It was a great commercial for Serie A and Italian football – which delivered an unsettling string of lackluster matches at the start of this season.

to me big party At the San Siro, Stefano Pioli posted what could be considered his best lineup, with Charles de Kettleri playing the “No. 10” role behind lone striker Olivier Giroud.

Simone Inzaghi also had his best men, with the exception of Romelu Lukaku. The Nerazzurri The coach had to make it without the great Belgian – easier said than done – and chose Joaquin Correa instead of Eden Dzeko to partner with Lautaro Martinez up front.

Since the restart of Inter and Milan to be Scudetto Contenders in recent years, the Madonnina derby It was a hot issue. This did not make an exception. A minor quarrel broke out between Denzel Dumfries and Theo Hernandez a few minutes into the match, resulting in both players scoring a yellow card. Giroud also had something to say to Milan Skriniar when he probably dived into the Slovak. Just a normal derby.

Marcelo Brozovic was the Inter man in the first half. The Croatian started with a serious score, finishing a nice effort with one touch of NerazzurriMilan’s defense quickly removed it. It was a warning sign.

For Milan, Rafael Leao woke up after 15 minutes of inactivity and crossed into the penalty area, as Alessandro Bastoni risked an own goal in an attempt to pre-empt Giroud. Then the Portuguese saved Samir Handanovic with a difficult shot with his left foot.

In the 21st minute, a sudden mistake from Milan’s defense led to the opening of Inter. Brozovic received the ball for Lautaro Martinez and shot it past Mike Minnan to put Inter ahead. However, there was no man in red and black to prevent the Croats from receiving the Bullpass.

But Inter quickly returned the compliment with a horrific horizontal pass in the defensive third that was easily blocked by Sandro Tonali. Former Brescia talent served Liao on the left and the Portuguese drilled the ball into the back of Handanovic’s net, making it 1-1 in 28 minutes.

galvanized tie liao Rossoneri Who kept pressing for the rest of the first half. Inter’s Tonali intercepted he tried again and exchanged the ball with Giroud, but his shooting effort came poorly and was dominated by the Inter goalkeeper.

Hernandez fired a shot that sailed over the bar, sending chills down Simone Inzaghi’s back, then Inter came to threaten him Rossoneri The goal again with a shot from Laotaro was saved by Fikayo Tomori, closing the curtain in the brilliant first half.

After the restart, Milan picked where it left off and quickly built a double lead that would prove decisive.

First there was Theo Hernandez’s free kick header from Tonali that went out just a few inches. After that, Rafael Liao threw a ball into the penalty area, which was shot by the Giro derby man, who left him unnoticed. Nerazzurri.

The two traded roles in 60 minutes as the Frenchman’s pass set the stage for Leo’s masterpiece today. The Portuguese star skated through three Inter defenders before firing the ball past the goalkeeper, making a three for Milan.

The Madonnina derby It seemed to be over, but Inzaghi’s changes succeeded in reviving it. The Inter coach came with a three-way switch bringing in Federico Dimarco, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and, moreover, Edin Dzeko.

The Bosnian was giving Nerazzurri Some new hopes as he hit the ball straight away from Mathieu Darmian’s cross, expecting Tomori on this occasion.

It was the goal that changed the momentum of the game once again as Inter started to push the equalizer hard – and they would likely have secured a goal by Mike Minnen.

The Rossoneri The goalkeeper conjured up a series of impressive saves that kept his team afloat. The Frenchman neutralized Lautaro Martinez’s header from close range, then blocked Dzeko with his foot. But his most decisive tackle came from screeching Hakan Calhanoglu from outside the box, which he flicked away with his finger to keep his skinny side ahead.

After Milan somehow weathered the storm, chances began to dwindle as both sides fatigued. Mkhitaryan’s right-footed shot during extra time was the NerazzurriAnother effort, but it ended up a few inches off target.

Milan ended up with all the points on offer in a derby played ‘at home’ for the first time since 2016, although a draw would probably be a fair result and a prize for both teams for delivering an exciting game. football turns out.
