Inter, manita in derby: Milan swept away
Inter completely dominated the derby della Madonnina by overwhelming AC Milan with a dry 5-1 on the fourth day of Serie A. At San Siro, the team led by Simone Inzaghi scored its fifth consecutive victory in the city derby in 2023, annihilating the Rossoneri cousins.
On 5', Mkhitaryan unlocked the result from a few steps but that wasn't the only goal of the first half. Before halftime, Marcus Thuram provided a gem, doubling with an impregnable right-footer that nearly slotted into the cross of the posts. In the second half, Milan tried to fight back and found a glimmer of hope in the 57th minute, thanks to Leao, who was fired into space by Giroud. The torrential rain that è fell on Milan did not prevent Inter from re-alerting.
Mkhitaryan completed his personal one-two by effectively sealing the score at 69'while former Calhanoglu netted the poker on a penalty kick. In full recovery Frattesi netted his first goal in the Nerazzurri ranks, completing the manita. Inter now leads the standings with full points on 12 points.
