Inter 1-2 Milan: Ibrahimovic scores brace in derby as Serie A leaders maintain perfect start


Inter 1-2 Milan: Zlatan Ibrahimovic scores twice in first 16 minutes on return from Covid-19 self-isolation as Serie A leaders maintain perfect start with derby victory

AC Milan’s 39-year-old Zlatan Ibrahimovic, recently recovered from a COVID-19 infection, scored an early brace to secure a 2-1 win over neighbours Inter in the Serie A derby on Saturday.

The Swedish striker put Milan in front after 13 minutes, tapping the ball in from the rebound after his penalty was saved by Samir Handanovic, and then struck again three minutes later from Rafael Leao’s cross.

In a breathless first half, Romelu Lukaku pulled one back for inter in the 29th minute, the first Serie A goal Milan have conceded this season. 

Inter were awarded a penalty in the 75th minute but it was revoked for offside in the build-up.

Milan have won all four games so far and lead the standings with 12 points, while Inter have seven after their first defeat of the season.
