It’s all kicking off in the Milan derby as the two of the biggest guys in the world of football were all up on each other’s business at San Siro.
Things went out of control when Alessio Romagnoli fouled the Belgian striker just before half-time. Some pushing ensued, a few words were exchanged and then the camera panned towards Lukaku and Ibrahimovic being involved in a tussle as tensions ran high.
We are not sure what kind of words were exchanged between the two but whatever it was, it really upset the Belgian striker as he spent the next two minutes trying to square up to the Swede.
Both the players were shown a yellow card but the fight continued as Lukaku was needed to be held back by his Inter Milan teammates.

Going to make for an even spicier second half in Milan.

As it turns out Zlatan has now been sent off in the second half after he was deemed to have fouled Aleksandar Kolarov. A dodgy red card at best as the Serbian might have clipped his own heels.
Though, the AC Milan forward might still end up having the last laugh if the Rossoneri go on to win this Coppa Italia fixture courtesy of his goal in the first half.
