The early evening game was for Internazionale. Marcelo Brozovic put his team in the lead after half an hour with a wonderful shot, after preparatory work by Danilo D’Ambrosio. About fifteen minutes before the end, the champion ran further through a goal from Lautaro Martínez, who had a nice foot movement in the house. Now Ivan Perišic was the declarant.
Giulio Maggiore then scored with a very nice shot for the home team. In extra time, Alexis Sánchez decided the game in favor of the favourite.
Denzel Dumfries was a basic player at Inter, where Stefan de Vrij came in 10 minutes before the end. Goalkeeper Jeroen Zoet was a substitute at Spezia.
Despite the beautiful goals, the most remarkable thing about the match was M’Bala Nzola’s substitution. The Angolan attacker was allowed to substitute for Spezia after 60 minutes. Three minutes later, he was warned by the referee that he had another earring in his ear, which he had to remove.
Nzola went to the side and started tinkering with his earring, but when he was still working on it after six minutes, coach Thiago Motta’s patience ran out. Nzola did not have to come back on the field, Motta promptly replaced him with Janis Antiste after 71 minutes.
After 11 minutes, Milan took the lead with a goal from Portuguese Rafael Leão, he rounded off with a controlled volley. The assist was from Frenchman Pierre Kalulu. In the final phase, Junior Messias made it 2-0 in the rebound.
AC Milan’s lead over city rivals Inter is now 2 points. Milan has played a game more than its fellow townsman.
Boadu scores for winning Monaco
Partly due to a goal from Myron Boadu, Monaco has won 2-3 in the French competition at Stade Rennes. The former AZ player took care of Monaco’s third goal. The club is now 3 points behind Rennes, the number 3 in the ranking.
Flavien Tait gave the home team the lead in the opening phase. Vanderson scored the equalizer, then Wissam Ben Yedder made it 1-2. After Boadu’s goal, Martin Terrier made it 2-3 from a penalty kick.
Paris Saint-Germain is the unapproachable frontrunner in France.
