Inter Milan continues its perfect start to the season and has yet embellished Saturday beating AC Milan 2-0 in the "Derby Madonnina", which earned him the first place in the championship of Italy , briefly abandoned to Juventus.

Inter were favorites at the Milan Derby and managed the game in the lead, leaving behind the disappointment of their failed entry in the Champions League on Tuesday against Slavia Prague (1-1).

Milan on the other hand has vaguely deluded by holding the 0-0 until the break and by some cons, led in particular by the former Lille Rafael Leao. But there were actually several classes of gap between the two teams.

In front of Fifa President Gianni Infantino and Brazilian Ronaldo, a former player of both teams, Inter have translated this superiority by two goals, but also two shots on the post, a goal canceled for a millimeter offside and at least three very clear chances saved by Donnarumma, Milan's best player, by far.

The first goal Nerazzurro was scored by Brozovic on a deflected shot, which the Rossoneri should never have allowed (1-0, 49th). Then it was Lukaku who scored the second goal, with a superb header on a flawless center Barella (78th).

Inter are now with 12 points in four games and some more certainty because Milan, who slipped to 9th place and still has a lot of work, was his most serious opponent after the most modest Lecce, Cagliari and Udinese.

Antonio Conte's squad has been launched but Juventus, who struggled to beat Hellas Verona on Saturday (2-1), is not far behind, only two lengths behind.

- Inusable Matuidi -

Three days after Madrid's draw against Atletico in the Champions League (2-2), Juventus had been slightly overhauled, with the first tenors of the season for Buffon, Dybala, Ramsey and Demiral.

Faced with competition from the inexhaustible Matuidi, Rabiot has not yet had a chance and remained on the bench for 90 minutes. "What should Rabiot think, that Matuidi is strong," summed up his coach Maurizio Sarri.

Faced with the promoted Veronese, the Bianconeri have struggled to impose their superiority and have even been led to score after an astonishing and spectacular game phase.

Verona got a penalty kick, hit the post by Di Carmine. Lazovic, who had followed, found him ... the bar. But in the continuation of the action, barely 15 seconds after the initial strike of Di Carmine, Miguel Veloso sent a fantastic shot in the skylight of Buffon (21st).

The advantage of Hellas, however, did not last very long and, for his first as holder, Ramsey equalized from a long shot, diverted by Günter (1-1, 31).

After the break, it was Ronaldo who put Juve in the lead by converting a penalty obtained by Cuadrado (49th). The score then did not move, even though both teams had opportunities.

Sunday, Naples (4th) will play in Lecce, while Bologna (3rd) will receive AS Roma (10th).
