AC Milan will probably be ruing the fact they missed some very good goal scoring opportunities as Inter got better as the match progressed.
Fresh from their Champions League win against Barcelona, Milan completely dominated the first half against Inter and got lead midway through it, with a superbly controlled shot from Stephan El Shaarawy. His partner, Mario Balotelli, though, completely went missing as the ex Man City man missed a few simple chances. Really, Milan should have had the game in the first half.
But Inter came back and got better when substitutions were made. They eventually got the equalizer in the form of a neatly taken header from Schelotto.
Both the goalkeepers Handanovic and Abbiati made at least one super save during the match. And the saves were made at a very crucial time too.
