CorSera: Milan and Inter both fail to end struggles in disappointing derby draw

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan and Inter both failed to break the deadlock in the Coppa Italia semi-final first leg clash last night in what might be considered a wasted opportunity.

Il Corriere della Sera (via MilanNews) reports how both Milan and Inter confirmed their moment of decline in a rather disappointing derby, with many mistakes and no goals, which leaves everything open regarding qualification for the final.

For the Rossoneri this is the third consecutive draw after those against Salernitana and Udinese in the league, while for the Nerazzurri it is the fourth game in a row without scoring, so in the end neither of the two teams came up with a solution to take a big step forward.

The biggest difficulties for both were in attack, where there was a lack of quality and above all goals that would have broken the game open, even if it was Pioli’s side that did better and tested Handanovic more than his opposite number was.

There was a penalty should for a foul by Skriniar on Giroud as he wrestled the Frenchman to the floor, but the referee Mariani let it go and as such we ended without goals. Now, both sides are under pressure to recover their form in the league.
