Other great performances were noticed as Jack Bonaventura showed incredible desire in the midfield and the young Manuel Locatelli played with complete confidence for his first derby with the first AC Milan team.

Inter Milan, However, pressured their opponent and clearly deserved both their goals as they were dominating the end of the game completely.


It all started with a Kondogbia header after ten minute that went high. It was clear that the Nerrazurri had the objective to start the game as good as they could.

Things did not change much as Perisic fired a shot away in the box in the 14th minute of the game, but the ball went straight into the arms of Donnarumma.

From there, Inter continued to create chances but they lacked quality finishing.

Milan finally started finding their rhythm and in the 42nd minute Suso fired a perfect shot to beat Handanovic and give Milan the lead. A great goal for the Rossoneri, which was built from the back through Donnarumma, who threw the ball to Bonaventura which started tthe successful  counter attack.

From that moment Milan started to play better as Bonaventura almost made it two with a goalbound effort blocked by Inter defence.
