January 26, 2021 Inter are the first semi-finalists of the Italian Cup: at San Siro, Milan beaten 2-1 in comeback at the last breath.
Conte's men are now waiting for the winner of the match (on unequal paper) between Juventus and Spal.
Pioli's team got off to a good start: Leao's straight right was just out (2 '), Brahim Diaz missed the tap-in plane by a whisker in the 13th minute.
The (double) response of the Nerazzurri is not late: great foot save by Tatarusanu (Donarumma disqualified) on the turn of Lukaku (24 '), Romanian goalkeeper who also Perisic (27').
At 31 'Milan pass: Ibrahimovic collects the ball at the edge of the area, advances a few meters and bags with a surgical low shot that hits the inside post and ends up in the net.
Sanchez headed close (blocked in front of the line) and Brozovic with a shot from distance.
Upon returning to the locker room, the furious quarrel continues (which began in the field a few moments before with a 'head to head') between Ibra and Lukaku, divided with difficulty by their teammates and booked.
Bad scene at the end of a good first half.
The second half opens with the opportunity of Sanchez (50 '): close right foot and another splendid response from Tatarusanu.
Rossoneri in ten at 58 ': Ibra knocks out Kolarov, takes the second yellow card and is sent off.
Inter pushed and equalized in the 71st minute.
Valeri is recalled by the Var for Leao's entry on Barella, initially not sanctioned: it is a penalty, Lukaku transforms with some thrills (the ball touches the internal crossbar).
Unusual scene fifteen minutes from the end: Valeri gets hurt, forced to abandon the race direction and replaced by fourth official Chiffi.
Outnumbered, Milan falters: at 89 'and 90' it is still a super Tatarusanu to avoid the worst on Lautaro and (above all) Lukaku.
Very long recovery (10 minutes) thanks to the referee's knockout and in the 97th minute Inter completes the comeback: the much discussed Eriksen drives away the extra time by signing the qualifying goal with an unstoppable free kick per turn.
