Brozovic-Lukaku: the derby is for Inter, Milan gives 0-2
Deserved victory of Conte's men, who make the match and also hit three woods. Rossoneri in trouble, Hernandez's outside post in the final. Nerazzurri always at the top of the ranking with full points
Shareby Gianluca Luceri 21 September 2019Four out of four. Inter remain at the top of the table with full points, winning the Madonnina derby with merit: at San Siro, Milan lost 0-2 to Conte's team, who immediately redeemed the bad performance in the Champions League against Slavia. Result that makes few wrinkles: what has prevailed today is the strongest team.
Formations. Leao's surprise among the Rossoneri: he is the 20-year-old Portuguese - instead of Paquetà or Rebic - Piatek's attacking shoulder. On the right lane of defense, Andrea Conti replaces the suspended Calabria. Nerazzurri with Barella in the midfield at five, Candreva is not at his best and goes on the bench (D'Ambrosio climbs on the wing), an offensive tandem still formed by Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez.
Clearly more dangerous for Inter in the first half, which collects four clear ball-goals. At Rodriguez's infamous 10th-minute back pass, Lautaro pounced on the ball but Donnarumma also did it before the patatrac happened: ball in the corner. Eight minutes later the same Lautaro unloads for Lukaku, right cross of the former United and still great Donnarumma. The Milan goalkeeper is the protagonist of another paratona in the 21st minute, always on a ubiquitous Lautaro Martinez: on the rejected D'Ambrosio from a few steps centers a striking post (goal eaten). After the half-hour, the fourth opportunity for the Nerazzurri: acrobatic reversal of D'Ambrosio, Donnarumma is produced on the nth flight, the winning tap-in is by Lautaro. Duties, however, on the recommendation of the Var cancels everything for a millimetric offside not of the Argentine but of the same D'Ambrosio. After stumbling, in the final he shows the Devil: Asamoah avoids the worst on a restart of Suso, on the 44 'a fine percussion by Leao on the left and assists for Piatek, who does not frame the goal.
Shooting. At 49 'Inter passes: Sensi's second free-kick for Brozovic who unloads a nice right from the edge, the ball hits Rafael Leao and ends up in the bag, throwing Donnarumma off guard. Duties cancel for a possible offside of Lautaro (which however does not intervene at all on the conclusion), but repents after having reviewed the images at the Var. Milan does not shake and the game remains in the hands of the Nerazzurri, still threatening with the Argentine Lautaro on the 61st (Donnarumma opposes an open hand) and on the 78th with Romelu Lukaku, who doubles on Barella's soft cross. A wheel (80 '), Politano splinters the intersection with a splendid left-handed ride. For Milan, who at 86 'takes a stake outside with Hernandez, it is the surrender. Candreva (92 ') gives the last thrill: a sinister mess left by Musacchio and a mocking internal wood.
