The first Milan derby in the new season at 1:45 pm on 22/9 ended with a convincing 2-0 victory for Inter.
The disappointing draw against Slavia Prague in the Champions League in the middle of the week caused Inter to enter the derby with Milan with the desire to assert strength.
The team of black and blue striped shirt showed that they were better prepared in terms of both force and tactics when they soon overwhelmed their rivals from the same city of Milan. Fighting against the 3-5-2 map of coach Antonio Conte seemed to be too overwhelming for Milan of Marco Giampaolo.
Inter completely outperformed the game and created a series of delicious opportunities. In the first half, rookie Romelu Lukaku had a situation facing goalkeeper goal Gianluigi Donnarumma but could not win. Danilo D’Ambrosio also finished the goal with a red and black striker.
VAR also rejected an Inter goal when determining Lautaro Martinez was in offside. The Milan side only responded weakly due to the single efforts of Suso and Rafael Leao.
Entering the second half, Inter concretized the overwhelming match with a goal by Marcelo Brozovic right after 49 minutes. The Milan defense was completely passive in this simple free kick. Goalkeeper Donnarumma was also powerless when the ball hit the foot of a home team player into the net.
Accepting the goal, Milan put up but Inter still played extremely alert when not retreating but still creating pressure. It all ended with Milan in the 78th minute when Nicolo Barella crossed the ball correctly for Romelu Lukaku to head high and hit the net against Milan. This is the third goal of the Belgian striker after 4 matches in Serie A this season.
In the few remaining minutes, Inter still put the ball on the Milan wooden frame 2 more times after the finishes of Matteo Politano and Antonio Candreva. Having won 2-0, Inter overcame Juve to return to the top of the table with a record of 4 wins after 4 rounds.
