Inter Milan Wins Thrilling Milan Derby to Move Top of Serie A
Inter Milan moved top of Serie A on Sunday (Feb 9) after storming back from two goals down to snatch a 4-2 win over AC Milan in a pulsating derby at the San Siro.
Inter pull level on 54 points with Juventus, who lost 2-1 at Hellas Verona on Saturday, but are ahead of the champions on goal difference thanks to a exhilerating second half turnaround after Ante Rebic and Zlatan Ibrahimovic had put Milan 2-0 up at the break.
Ibrahimovic, making his first Derby appearance since re-signing on a free transfer, headed down towards Rebic who tapped for the opener.
Just before the break, the Swedish star again made the difference, heading home after some sloppy defending from Inter to give the AC Milan a two-goal lead at the break.
Antonio Conte’s side surely knew what was at stake in Serie A. A victory would make his team draw level with Juventus at the summit.
It was a re-energised Inter that resumed play in the second half. Within six minutes of play, Marcelo Brozovic hammered home a volley to cut the deficit in half.
