Serie A

November 20th

Stadio Giuseppe Meazza (San Siro), Milan, Italy


42′ Suso

52′ Candreva

58′ Suso

90’+2′ Perišić

Thanks for joining us.

FT: The result means that Milan move into third level on points on second-placed Roma on 26 points, although Roma have a better goal difference. Inter Milan move into ninth on 18 points.

FT: Milan’s opener was against the run of play but despite that, the Rossoneri had a few good chances to seal the victory. First Bonaventura’s deflected effort drifted inches wide of the target before Suso put Milan ahead once again. Right at the death Pašalić had a good chance but he fired wide.

FT: Inter deserved to get something from the match having dominated the game for large majorities of both halves. Inter had a few opportunities to level the scores earlier in the second-half with Candreva testing Donnarumma before his ferocious strike drew the Nerazzurri level. Mário then went close but his effort was charged-down. Since trailing, Perišić went close when he volleyed inches wide before Icardi spurned a good chance when played through on-goal. Then Murillo headed off-target from a corner. That was before Perišić tapped home the deserved-leveller.

FT: So a last-gasp goal from Perišić has denied Milan the chance to go second in Serie A.

HT: So will the Rossoneri hold on or will Inter come back in this match? Join us again for the second-half.

HT: Inter have created the better chances and need to be more clinical if they are to come back into this match. Should things fail to improve for Inter, they have a number of quality attacking players that can make the difference. They also have to be wary of the Rossoneri’s threat on the counter-attack, which cost them in the last three minutes of the first-half. Milan will need to repeat their first-half performance and improve their defensive shape after they allowed the Nerazzurri too much space in the box. They look a threat on the counter and just have to contain their nosy neighbours.

HT: Inter will be disappointed not only to find themselves behind, but also that they aren’t ahead. They’ve had numerous opportunities from Perišić, who first tested Donnarumma before seeing efforts sail off-target when he should have scored. Kondogbia also missed the target by inches from a header and Icardi failed to connect with a strike after Candreva’s miscued effort fell into his path. Additionally, seconds before Suso put the Rossoneri ahead, Candreva had a good chance but Donnarumma made the save.

HT: The Rossoneri, who have barely been in the game, had a few efforts from De Sciglio and Bacca that tested Handanović. They were on the backfoot for the majority of this half but have the lead after a fine counter allowed Suso, to curl home.

HT: So Milan have the lead against their neighbouring rivals against the run of play.
