The Nerazzurri fans had a Sunday to be proud of in the Serie A. After being 2-0 down at half-time in the Milan Derby against AC Milan, Internazionale was able to get a comeback and leave the Giuseppe Meazza stadium with a 4-2 victory.

As the game kicked off at the Giuseppe Meazza, AC Milan knew how to impose themselves and created some good opportunities during the first minutes. Inter also had a few chances, however, it was the visitors who broke the deadlock. At the 40th minute, following a cross, Zlatan Ibrahimovic went higher than the defense to flick the ball over to Ante Rebic, who tapped in.

Still in the first half, at injury time, the Rossonero doubled their lead. After a deflected ball in the box, Ibrahimovic was at the back post to send a venomous header past goalkeeper Daniele Padelli. 2-0 AC Milan before the half-time… But things would be totally different in the second half.

As soon as the 51st minute arrived, Inter started their comeback. After Theo Hernandez blocked a shot from Antonio Candreva, the ball went perfectly to Marcelo Brozovic, who hit it with a left-foot volley.

The equalizer came just 2 minutes later as Matias Vecino sent a right-foot effort from inside the six-yard box and past goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.

Inter kept on pressing, and the comeback seemed inevitable. It came in the 70th minute through Stefan de Vrij. After a corner, the number 6 somehow managed to nestle a diving header into the far corner.

It was clear that the visitors felt the goal, but they kept searching for the equalizer. Inter than decided to play on counter-attacks and that worked. At the injury time, Romelu Lukaku put the final numbers to the match. The striker climbed higher than the defender from a whipped ball inside of the area and powered the header past Donnarumma to make it 4-2.

Amazing comeback from Antonio Conte’s Internazionale, who is definitely back in the title race against Juventus and Lazio.

With the good victory in the derby, Internazionale equaled the number of points of the leaders, and are now behind of them due to the goals scored rule. AC Milan, on the other hand, got dropped down to 10th place, with 32 points.

It’s clear, however, that after Ibrahimovic’s arrival they are playing better and the UEFA Europa League mission is not impossible.

Both teams return to the pitch in the middle of the week, where they will play the first leg of the semifinals of Coppa Italia. Inter will welcome Napoli on Tuesday and Milan will host Juventus two days later.
