Milan snatch extraordinary draw with Inter in first Chinese derby

Milan snatch extraordinary draw with Inter in first Chinese derby

But AC Milan managed to claw their way back into the game, with Alessio Romagnoli reducing the deficit before Cristian Zapata struck in the seventh minute of injury time to secure a point for his side.

The match is booked as a "home" game for Inter Milan but AC Milan could find themselves in some kind of a renewed vigour after a new era started for the club on Friday, with Chinese investment firm Rossoneri Sport Investment Lux completing a £628m takeover of the club, taking the mantle from former Italy Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi.

The post Milan derby "great advert" in Asia: Montella appeared first on Vanguard News.

Incredibly, they made it count, with Manuel Locatelli flicking Deulofeu's corner into the path of Zapata, who drove the ball over the line - via the cross bar - despite the best efforts of Gary Medel.

The result kept Milan sixth in Serie A, inside the European places, while Inter stayed outside in seventh, two points behind their rivals.

What a sight to behold!

"In the second half there was a great reaction, a feat".

Deulofeu hit the foot of the post using a low strike in the right of the place but Inter threatened straight away to the counterattack in a breathless opening 20 minutes.

Icardi played a neat one-two with Perisic who crossed from the left for the Argentina to sweep home. "We're still missing two points from the last derby".

Mattia De Sciglio may have been to blame for losing the flight of the ball but there was so much to admire in the way in which Roberto Gagliardini picked out the run of Antonio Candreva with a lofted, 40-metre pass from halfway - while the winger's hooked finish over the advancing Gigio Donnarumma wasn't too shabby either.

"The last two games we've had two bad 45-minute spells". It was Icardi's 21st league goal of the season and perhaps more significantly, his first in the Milan Derby. "I'm happy to have scored", the Milan defender added.

The Nerazzurri almost snatched a third when a rapid counter released Icardi down the left wing before the striker found Perisic with a slide-rule pass but the winger's first-time effort was too tame to trouble Donnarumma.
