Result: Inter Milan 1-2 AC Milan

Date: 17 October 2020

Venue: San Siro

Zlatan Ibrahimovic bagged a brace on his return after recovering from Covid-19 to hand AC Milan a 2-1 win rivals Inter Milan on Saturday night.

Inter boss Antonio Conte was without Alessandro Bastoni, Roberto Gagliardini and Milan Skriniar who all tested positive for Covid-19. Meanwhile, Ibrahimovic has recovered from the virus to make the Milan line-up.

The Red half of Milan awarded a penalty after 11 minutes when Ismael Bennacer was brought down by Aleksander Kolarov. Ibrahimovic stepped up but saw his effort saved by Samir Handanovic but was on hand to sweep home the rebound.

The lead was doubled in the 16th minute as Ibrahimovic completed his brace after turning home Rafael Leao's cross from the left flank.

Inter did pull a goal back just before the half-hour mark when Ivan Perisic's cross found its way to Romelu Lukaku, who made no mistake from six-yards out.

Conte's charges nearly pulled themselves level just before the break but Milan shot-stopper Gianluigi Donnarumma produced a superb save out keep out Lautaro Martinez's powerful strike.

The second half continued in similar fashion to the first but Inter should have been level in the 59th minute when Achraf Hakimi fired wide from six-yards out.

Conte eventually made an attacking switch on 69 minutes as Christian Eriksen was introduced at the expense of Marcelo Brozovic in midfield.

Inter were awarded a penalty by the referee six minutes later when Donnarumma appeared to have brought down Lukaku, however the decision was overturned by the Video Assistant Referee (VAR).

Milan managed to see off a late push from Inter in the latter stages of the half to maintain their perfect start to the league season.
