This week Inter take part in another installment of the Derby Della Mandonina. Inter at the start of the season won the match 2-0 but overall Milan has won most of their matches against Inter. Both sides have their reasons to win this highly anticipated matchup. Inter in this match look to get back on even points with Juventus after their loss to Hellas Verona on Saturday. Milan on the other hand are looking to get back on track and secure a spot in the Europa League. Inter will look to create many chances but the issue that still plagues them is capitializing on those chances. Defensive wise they have one key player they need to keep isolated that is the returning Zlatan who is looking to help get Milan back on track. Milan are looking to do the same thing but they need to keep the duo of Martinez and Lukaku but of those two they need to keep Martinez at bay as he is quick and agile and is a strong goal chance taker. He is the stronger of the two. This will be a tough match but Inter may get the win by the slightest of margins.

In this match Inter stuck with the 3-5-2 formation but with a few player switches. In goal taking over for Handanovic who is still out with injury is Padelli. On the defense is the dynamic duo of Skriniar and Devrij. These two continue to be the backbone of this stellar defense. Capping them off on the right is Godin. On the left wing back is Ashley Young who is slowly getting the feel with this club he is even helping on assisting chances. In the midfield is Vecino, Brozovic and Barella these three are working well together and doing a great job creating chances and even capitializing on those chances. On the right wing back is Candreva who has gotten better this season even scoring a few goals. The forwards in this match is Alexis Sanchez who is taking over for Martinez who was out with suspension. When he played before his injury in October he scored a few crucial goals that lead to Inter’s win in that match. Next to him is Lukaku who is a good player still struggles in big matches. This is a great lineup but Milan are fast and agile and will cause Inter issues.

In the first half Milan were in firm control in both possession and creating chance. They would score two goals one from Rebic with a shot from a shot from the center of the box as the ball lands the ball in the center of the goal making things 1-0 to the rivals. Before the half would end Zlatan finds the net with a shot from the left of the box and the ball landing in the lower right corner. The half would end with Milan up 2-0. In the second half however Inter would fire one all cyliders to get back into this match as those three points were slipping from their grasp. Minutes in Brozovic took a shot from outside the box as the ball lands in the lower left corner. Making things 2-1. Not even two minutes later Vecino lands a shot from the center of the box landing the ball in the lower right corner making things all square once more at 2-2. With twenty minutes to go Devrij takes a header which lands the ball in the upper left corner giving Inter their first lead of the match as things are now 2-3. In the final minute Lukaku put the nail in the coffin landing a header to the lower left corner as Inter win this match 2-4. This was a huge comeback and a much needed win as they now jump Juventus in the league standings. The man of the match goes to Alexis Sanchez who helped create multiple chances along with helping assist a goal. Inter in their next match take on Lazio who they beat at the start of the season. As always until the next one Forza Inter.
