Inter beat Milan with a deep score of 5-1, in the derby that took place yesterday at “San Siro”.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan scored twice, while Marcus Thuram, Hakan Calhangolu and Davide Frattesi added a goal each for Inter. On the other side, Rafael Leao scored for Milan.
We bring you three things you probably haven’t seen on TV:
As usual, the show started before the start of the match, with the fantastic choreographies given to us by Curva Nord and Curva Sud. Inter had home ground advantage, so most of the fans were in blue and black. Inter’s supporters joked with those of Milan about the defeat in the semi-finals of the Champions League last year and continued during the match by singing the famous song ‘Pioli is on fire’. On the other hand, the Milan fans took revenge by singing ‘You are the champion of Europe’, but it can be said that their response was as weak as the appearance of Pioli’s boys on the field.
It was a difficult night for the Rossoneri coach who was seen by fans and pundits as the main person responsible for Milan’s disastrous performance against their city rivals. He often complained to his midfielders and centre-backs, especially after the action where they conceded the third goal. After the match, the 57-year-old congratulated some of his opponents, but not the Milan fans, Curva Sud, as he immediately went to the dressing room.
As expected, the Italian midfielder did not start for Inter as Simone Inzaghi chose Henrikh Mkhitaryan in the center of midfield alongside Nicolo Barella and Hakan Calhanoglu. This decision turned out to be right, because the Armenian scored twice in the opponent’s goal and gave an assist. However, Frattesi came on from the bench eager to contribute, especially after scoring twice for Italy at the San Siro earlier this week. A few minutes before the end of the match, Frattesi scored a goal which he celebrated by removing his shirt, this action caused referee Simone Sozza to punish him with a yellow card.
