As Napoli bring 'Sarri-ball' to Man City, a glossary of football's tactical systems

Ahead of Manchester City's Champions League match with Napoli, Telegraph Sport looks at the tactics that have helped the Serie A team make a scintillating start to the season.  Sarri-ball Where did it come from? 'Sarri-ball' is the name given to the brave, progressive tactics of Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri.  How does it work? The style of play was described by L'Equipe as "vertical tiki-taka", and is a possession-based style with plenty of short, quick passes but an emphasis on moving up the pitch quickly. In other words: "liquid football".  Así sale jugando Napoli pic.twitter.com/2mwus1n6dM— El Tano. (@ElTano_) August 1, 2017 How successful is it?  At present, Sarri-ball is working to devastating effect, with Napoli top of Serie A having won all eight of their league matches this season. In his first two seasons at Napoli, Sarri led the club to second and third placed finishes, but he has spent most of his managerial career in Italy's lower leagues.  Napoli are top of Serie A having made a perfect start to the season  Tiki-taka Where did it come from? A possession-based style of play that dates back to Johan Cruyff's all-conquering Barcelona team of the early 1990s, and was perfected by the Spanish national side that won three consecutive major tournaments between 2008 and 2012.  How does it work? Tiki-taka relies on highly technical players, who are all comfortable on the ball and can move opposition players out of position with patient and accurate passing.  It can also be a defensive tactic in the way that it suffocates opponents by depriving them off the ball and gradually drains their energy.  Man City 2 - 0 Stoke (Raheem Sterling, 19 min) As well as Spain, tiki-taka is most associated with Pep Guardiola's Barcelona team of the same 2008-2012 period. Guardiola though despises the term and said in 2013: "I loathe all that passing for the sake of it, all that tiki-taka. It's so much rubbish and has no purpose. You have to pass the ball with a clear intention, with the aim of making it into the opposition's goal. It's not about passing for the sake of it." Pep Guardiola claims to hate 'tiki-taka' How successful is it?  Hugely, in the case of Spain and Barcelona. Less so in the case of Arsenal, who over the last decade have employed a similar style.  The tactic has drawn criticism in recent years for its obsession with keeping possession, and when executed badly, tiki-taka has been described as 'sterile domination'.  Gegenpressing Where did it come from? The tactic of hounding opposition players as soon as possession is lost is another of Guardiola's hallmarks, but the term 'gegenpressing' was made popular by Jurgen Klopp's Borussia Dortmund team of 2008-2015. Arrigo Sacchi’s AC Milan team of the 1980s and 1990s also played with a highly effective counter-pressing style as they won consecutive European cups in 1989 and 1990.  How does it work? Guardiola's Barcelona employed the 'six-second rule' where his players were instructed to launch into high-intensity sprints to win the ball back in the immediate aftermath of having lost it.  The idea is that the whole team presses together to try and force their opponents into giving up the ball, and does so high up the pitch where losing possession is most costly.  Talking tactics: Liverpool's heavy metal football 02:02 How successful is it?  Dortmund and Barcelona enjoyed great success with their high press, while Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham have used the tactic to great effect in the last few years.  Klopp's protege at Dortmund David Wagner meanwhile used a gegenpress-fuelled 4-2-3-1 system to achieve promotion to the Premier League with Huddersfield last season. Klopp has received criticism though for running his teams into the ground and causing them injury with the tactic.  Catenaccio Where did it come from? Italian for 'door-bolt', catenaccio is a defensive tactic that evolved in the 1960s with the addition of a 'libero' (sweeper) into a back four to make a back five.  The system has since become synonymous with defensively minded Italian national and club teams.  How does it work? The basic idea of catenaccio is that a team has four defenders who can focus solely on snapping away at the player they are marking, while the libero picks up any loose balls and acts as the spare man.  There is also an often overlooked attacking element to the system, which is that the libero allows the full-backs to get forward more and join in with attacks. In many ways, the system laid the foundations for the 3-5-2 system and the 3-4-3, which is currently en vogue.  Using catenaccio, Inter Milan won consecutive European cups in the 1960s How successful is it?  The Argentine manager, Helenio Herrera, is credited as the man who introduced catenaccio to the world, and his Inter Milan team of the 1960s won three Serie A titles and two European cups.  Other catenaccio-fuelled successes include the limited Greece side triumphing at Euro 2004 under Otto Rehhagel, and Giovanni Trapatonni winning the Portuguese Liga with Benfica a year later.  The Italian national side have enjoyed mixed results with catenaccio and have on occasion been criticised for leaning too heavily on the model at the expense of creativity. Barry Davies, you may remember, almost went into meltdown when an unnecessarily defensive-minded Italy were knocked out of the 2002 World Cup by South Korea. "And the Italians are out because they will not learn," the exasperated commentator lamented.  Four years later Marcelo Lippi leaned on catenaccio in the second round win against Australia when the Azzurri were reduced to 10 men en route to lifting the 2006 World Cup.  Totaalvoetbal Where did it come from? Ajax employed variants of the system from the early 20th century, while the Austrian 'Wunderteam' of the 1930s is accepted to be the first national team to play it.  Totaalvoetbal (or Total Football) really took off in the 1960s however, when Ajax manager Rinus Michels relaunched the system with Johan Cruyff as its figurehead. Michels then used the system with the Dutch national team at the 1974 World Cup.  Johann Cruyff was the key player in Ajax and Holland's Total Football teams of the 1970s How does it work? Total Football is predicated on the idea that every player can play in every position, allowing for constant inter-changing among players roaming around the pitch.  Cruyff for instance was nominally a centre-forward, but he was allowed - and encouraged - to pop up all over the pitch, safe in the knowledge that a team-mate could occupy the space where the main striker was supposed to be.  How successful is it?  As with many of these systems, a manager would only attempt Total Football if he had a group of exceptionally talented footballers. This was certainly the case with the Ajax and Dutch sides that played Total Football, with the former in particular achieving a huge amount of success - most notably winning the 1971 European Cup.  Cruyff employed many of the principles of Total Football when Barcelona manager between 1988 and 1996, but it would take a very brave manager to attempt it now given the volume of matches the big teams play and the reduced number of training sessions.

The basic idea of catenaccio is that a team has four defenders who can focus solely on snapping away at the player they are marking, while the libero picks up any loose balls and acts as the spare man.  There is also an often overlooked attacking element to the system, which is that the libero allows the full-backs to get forward more and join in with attacks. In many ways, the system laid the foundations for the 3-5-2 system and the 3-4-3, which is currently en vogue.  Using catenaccio, Inter Milan won consecutive European cups in the 1960s How successful is it?  The Argentine manager, Helenio Herrera, is credited as the man who introduced catenaccio to the world, and his Inter Milan team of the 1960s won three Serie A titles and two European cups.  Other catenaccio-fuelled successes include the limited Greece side triumphing at Euro 2004 under Otto Rehhagel, and Giovanni Trapatonni winning the Portuguese Liga with Benfica a year later.  The Italian national side have enjoyed mixed results with catenaccio and have on occasion been criticised for leaning too heavily on the model at the expense of creativity. Barry Davies, you may remember, almost went into meltdown when an unnecessarily defensive-minded Italy were knocked out of the 2002 World Cup by South Korea. "And the Italians are out because they will not learn," the exasperated commentator lamented.  Four years later Marcelo Lippi leaned on catenaccio in the second round win against Australia when the Azzurri were reduced to 10 men en route to lifting the 2006 World Cup.  Totaalvoetbal Where did it come from? Ajax employed variants of the system from the early 20th century, while the Austrian 'Wunderteam' of the 1930s is accepted to be the first national team to play it.  Totaalvoetbal (or Total Football) really took off in the 1960s however, when Ajax manager Rinus Michels relaunched the system with Johan Cruyff as its figurehead. Michels then used the system with the Dutch national team at the 1974 World Cup.  Johann Cruyff was the key player in Ajax and Holland's Total Football teams of the 1970s How does it work? Total Football is predicated on the idea that every player can play in every position, allowing for constant inter-changing among players roaming around the pitch.  Cruyff for instance was nominally a centre-forward, but he was allowed - and encouraged - to pop up all over the pitch, safe in the knowledge that a team-mate could occupy the space where the main striker was supposed to be.  How successful is it?  As with many of these systems, a manager would only attempt Total Football if he had a group of exceptionally talented footballers. This was certainly the case with the Ajax and Dutch sides that played Total Football, with the former in particular achieving a huge amount of success - most notably winning the 1971 European Cup.  Cruyff employed many of the principles of Total Football when Barcelona manager between 1988 and 1996, but it would take a very brave manager to attempt it now given the volume of matches the big teams play and the reduced number of training sessions.

Inter 3 Milan 2: Mauro Icardi completes hat-trick with late, controversial penalty to seal the derby

Mauro Icardi scored a hat-trick to pile the pressure on Milan boss Vincenzo Montella as Internazionale came out on top in a thrilling Derby della Madonnina. The Argentina striker converted a controversial 90th-minute penalty after Ricardo Rodriguez was penalised for holding Danilo D'Ambrosio to snatch a 3-2 victory at the San Siro. Icardi put the home side ahead with a deft 28th-minute finish and then after Suso had levelled with an equally adept finish, dispatched an improvised 63rd-minute volley. Montella's side thought they had claimed a point when keeper Samir Handanovic could only carry Giacomo Bonaventura's 81st-minute shot into his own net, but Icardi's late heroics condemned them to a fourth Serie A defeat of the new campaign which leaves them 10 points adrift of their city rivals. Inter enjoyed the better start and Antonio Candreva was unfortunate not to open the scoring with 13 minutes gone when he ran on to Borja Valero's pass and stabbed a shot against the crossbar with keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma beaten. Icardi scores his second with a brilliantly improvised volley Credit: REUTERS/Alessandro Garofalo Milan gradually worked their way into the game as Inter central defender Miranda found himself under pressure, although it was he who went close at the other end with a header from Ivan Perisic's cross which dropped just wide after Valero's 23rd-minute free-kick had been only half-cleared. But the home side forced their way in front five minutes later when Icardi got ahead of defender Mateo Musacchio to guide Candreva's cross inside the far post. Donnarumma was relieved to grasp a skidding Icardi long-range effort to his chest nine minutes before the break, but opposite number Handanovic had to get down smartly to block Fabio Borini's shot at his near post in the final minute of the half. Suso scores Milan's first equaliser Credit: Antonio Calanni/AP Milan thought they were back in it within four minutes of the restart when Musacchio rifled the ball into the roof of the net after Andre Silva's curling left-foot effort had come back off the post, only for an offside flag to cut their celebrations short. Handanovic had to save from former Liverpool strikers Suso and Borini in quick succession and half-time substitute Patrick Cutrone guided Rodriguez's whipped cross into the side-netting as the visitors sensed an opportunity. They were back in it with 56 minutes gone when Suso curled a fine left-foot shot from distance into the bottom corner to level. Icardi calmly converts the late penalty Credit: EPA/Daniel Dal Zennaro Matias Vecino should have restored Inter's lead on the hour when he steered another inviting Candreva cross inches wide, but after a fine save by Handanovic denied Bonaventura at the other end, they did force their way in front once again. Icardi had to adjust in mid-air as he met Perisic's cross, but he did so perfectly to volley into the far corner, although the drama continued when Handanovic could only carry the ball over his own line as he attempted to claw away Bonaventura's shot. But there was still more to come at the death when Rodriguez impeded D'Ambrosio in the area and Icardi stepped up to score from the spot. 9:40PM Full time Inter win their home derby. Milan have a hat-trick of league defeats but deserved a point, I think. I'm not disputing that D'Ambrosio was fouled at the back post by Rodriguez, simply that Miranda, Nagamoto and Vecino were doing the same at the other end at every Milan corner and attacking free-kick.  Thanks for your company tonight. Arrivederci.  9:39PM 90+4 min Eder hacks down Locatelli from behind 35 yards out, right of centre. Suso chips it down Handanovic's throat.  9:38PM 90+3 min Icardi goes off to eats some time and take a bow. Santon comes on.  9:37PM 90+2 min Still think Milan have been harshly done by given the prevailing defending at set-pieces this evening. Give that and you have to give seven more.  9:36PM 90 min It's a hat-trick for the Inter captain but I'm not sure the penalty was a stonebonker by any means. It was given for Rodriguez's tug and hold on the man at the back post. Icardi slots the penalty past Donnarumma.  9:34PM GOAL!!  Inter 3-2 Milan (Iacardi, pen) 9:34PM Penalty to Inter Icardi to take.  9:33PM 89 min Vecino carves open the Milan defence, gliding past a declining Bonucci but doesn't hit it with his left, passes it to Icardi who backheels to Eder. He shoots but Rodriguez dives in boldly to block. Corner.  9:32PM 88 min Bonaventura scoops a ball over Inter's backline for Andre Silva's run but Miranda goes with him and holds him off.   9:31PM 87 min Locatelli makes another abrasive foul, his second in a minute but isn't booked.  9:31PM 86 min Rodriguez has a romp forward and floods into space ceded by a retreating Gagliardini. Twenty-five yards from goal he wafts a shot past the left post.  9:29PM 85 min Inter sub: Eder on for Borja Valero.  9:29PM 84 min Handanovic reached it with his fingertips, pushed it into the post from where it rebounded into his body and over the line as the keeper continued his slide.  9:28PM 81 min Set up by another excellent Borini cross, left-footed from the right bent in towards the far post. Cutrone just misses it and puts his head in his hands but Bonaventura slides in to  stab a shot inside the left post. Handanovic dives to save and his momentum takes it over the line as the goalline technology shows. That may make it a Handanovic og.  Goalline tech Credit: BT SPORT   9:25PM GOAL!! Inter 2-2 Milan (Bonaventura) 9:24PM 80 min Perisic enters the book for whacking Andre Silva on the chin when thrusting his right arm back to fend him off.  9:23PM 79 min Milan sub: Romagnoli off, 19-year-old Manuel Locatelli comes on.  9:22PM 77 min The corner is swerved on to Perisic's head but he nods it too close to Donnarumma who drops to his knee to save.   9:21PM 76 min Until Cancela gets the chance to show us some offensive play. Vecino cuts a swathe down the right and feeds the sub who sprints to the byline and has his cross blocked by Romagnoli.  9:20PM 75 min Cancela is tracking Rodriguez up and down the line.  9:18PM 74 min Inter make a substitution, sending on Joao Cancelo for Candreva. Joao Cancela takes a note on with him that must be destroyed on reading presumably.   9:17PM 73 min Borini fires another decent cross to the back post but Rodriguez can't make much of it.  9:16PM 72 min Romagnoli latches on to a loose ball after some penalty box pinball but lofts his lob over the bar.  9:15PM 70 min Have a look at this finish from Icardi! Icardi scores his second Credit: AFP PHOTO / MIGUEL MEDINA   9:14PM 69 min When Suso scored he, like Icardi, cupped his ears. One of these days a player in Serie A will whip an ear trumpet out of one of his socks.  Suso makes the ear gesture Credit: MARCO BERTORELLO/AFP   9:13PM 68 min From the free-kick Milan play in Borini down the right and he again beats the defence with a searching cross that picks out Andre Silva but the Milan centre-forward, for once, traps it with boots of Blue Circle cement and surrenders the initiative.  9:11PM 66 min Poor Borini is penalised for handball when Nagatomo yanks his shorts, almost debagging him and forcing him to fall on the ball. A minute later he is given a free-kick when Gagliardini violates his personal space.  9:09PM 64 min Inter break quickly, Icardi bringing the ball forward at pace through the inside-right channel. he switches it over to Perisic who takes it to the byline and chips a cross back towards the penalty spot. It comes at an awkward height but Icardi improvises superbly to spring up and volley it in midair past Donnarumma.  9:07PM GOAL!!  Inter 2-1 Milan (Icardi) 9:07PM 62 min Great cross from Borini on the right, arcs towards the back post where Bonaventura traps it on the bounce and fires a low shot from eight yards at Handanovic who makes a firm save.  9:05PM 60 min Inter bundle it away and break up the right, Candreva burning off Rodriguez and finding Vecino who cuts inside on to his left and wafts a lusty shot into the hoardings.    9:04PM 59 min It's all Milan now, passing it around with genuine zip until Borini gets round Nagatomo and crosses.  9:02PM 57 min Terrific, Musacchio makes a dummy run up the right to distract Perisic which allows Suso the freedom of the inside-right channel. He transfers the ball on to his left foot and curls a shot in at the right post with his wand of a left foot. Lovely finish.  9:00PM GOAL!!  Inter 1-1 Milan (Suso) 8:59PM 54 min Miranda yanks Andre Silva over with an arm around the shoulder. Free kick that Milan send out to the left. Rodriguez sprints to the byline and spears in a low near-post cross that is met by Cutrone and flicked just wide. Clever run and almost the appropriate finish.  8:57PM 53 min Much better from Milan this half.  8:56PM 50 min Suso is playing a more withdrawn role and uses the space to thunder a left foot shot that Handanovic tips over. From the corner Borini receives the ball at the far post, not by design but by bounce, and hits a Barnes-Wallis bouncing shot through Gagliardini's legs and into the post.  8:54PM 49 min Musacchio smashes the ball into the roof of the Inter net but he was offside when Andre Silva's shot was saved.  8:53PM 48 min Chris Perry thinks Montella will be binned if Milan lose here. Who would replace him? Benitez? Vecino has a power pea-roller from 25 yards that momentarily spooks Donnarumma into a covering dive but it skidded a yard past the post.  8:51PM 46 min Nagatomo hits a cross on the run after being played down the line by Perisic but scoops it straight to Donnarumma.  8:49PM Milan sub Cutrone is on but not for Suso ... he replaces Kessie.  8:36PM Half time Well ... Inter look capable of being devastating on the break and were once. Milan are an utterly incoherent side in terms of formation and balance. I'd get Suso off and stick the lad Cutrone on.   8:35PM 45 min It bobbles back to Borini who is now at an angle of almost 90 degrees with the post so can head the rebound only into the side-netting. Perry slams Borini - it was close to Handanovic, he says.  But he hit it well and it was a good save. He sounds as though he's got it in for Borini.  8:33PM 44 min Excellent from Kessie in the centre-circle. He tales the ball back to goal, spins Gagliardini, and pelts towards the box. He splits Miranda and Nagatomo with an angled pass to Borini who fires a low shot that Handanovic saves superbly. Borini gets his shot off Credit: REUTERS/Alessandro Garofalo   8:31PM 43 min And that allows Inter to come straight back at them, Candreva teeing up Vecino to cut in from the right on to his left foot and shoot ... straight down Donnarumma's throat.  8:30PM 42 min Candreva hares down the right, checks back from the byline and sends in a tepid left-foot cross that Bonucci tries to clear with a hoof that flies straight up, forcing him to follow up with a header that doesn't get the distance he needs.  8:28PM 40 min Kessie is penalised for a foul on Gagliardini. Chris Perry, the co-commentator/analyst, keeps ripping Borini. He thinks he's a complete waste of space.  8:27PM 39 min Hand ball by Vecino gives Milan a free-kick just inside their own half but they make no progress, lose the ball to Borja Valero and wrestle him down to stop him sprinting upfield when so many of their defensive players were out of position. Not sen enough of Borini, Kessie and Suso.   8:25PM 37 min D'Ambrosio writhes after a kick on the shin from Rodriguez that ends the moment the ref gives him a free-kick.  8:23PM 35 min Skirinar is the victim of a miscarriage of justice when penalised for a foul on Bonaventura that was a good tackle. The cross is swung in from the left, right-footed, and headed over by Bonucci.  Inter captain Mauro Icardi celebrates his opening goal Credit: MARCO BERTORELLO/AFP/Getty Images   8:21PM 33 min Persisic bullocks up the left, cuts inside and goes for an Henry right-foot far-post curler that is blocked by Musacchio.  8:20PM 32 min Suso has the ball 20 yards from the Inter goal on the left out by the touchline and passs it straight into Skirinar. Wasteful and casual and allows Inter to bomb forward.  8:19PM 31 min Bonucci held up his hand after the goal but it was devilishly difficult to intercept, given the whip and bend. Milan push Inter back but know now, as they always have, that they're lethal on the counter.  8:17PM 28 min Wonderful cross, tremendous finish. Credit: MIGUEL MEDINA/AFP/Getty Images   8:15PM GOAL!! Inter 1-0 Milan (Icardi)Great cross, hit early on the run  to eight yards. Bonucci sticks out a leg on the slide to try to intercept, misses it and Icardi flicks it past Donnarumma with a perfectly judged finish.  Iacrdi scores! Credit: REUTERS/Alessandro Garofalo   8:14PM 25 min Vecino pulls back Bonaventura and is booked. Inter go mad because Bonaventura wouldn't have had the chance to run at the Inter defence if the ref had penalised Biglia for handball. He had his fist up  when it hit it and diverted Gagliardini's pass to Bonaventura.   8:12PM 24 min The free-kick soars over the box from the right and Perisic goes dogging after it towards the left corner flag. He catches up with it, spins and whips in a glorious cross that Miranda leaps to meet and power about a foot wide of the diving Donnarumma's left post.  Milan's Giacomo Bonaventura , left, and Inter's Danilo D'Ambrosio vie for the ball during the derby  Credit: AP Photo/Antonio Calanni   8:10PM 22 min Romagnoli takes out Candreva who had knocked the ball past him prior to turning on the afterburners. The Milan defender just blocked his passage (hello, Max Miller) with a bodycheck. Free kick.  8:09PM 21 min Suso lets fly form 28 yards with a left-foot swinger that scuds miles wide. Inter have a solid shape and pattern but can't get the ball up to Perisic and Candreva this past 10 minutes.  8:07PM 19 min Inter scramble the first corner behind for another that is headed away by Perisic.  8:06PM 18 min Bonaventura makes a decent run, tacking left as he enters the box. He tries to sell D'Ambrosio a dummy but he ain't buying and Bonaventura has to take on the shot anyway, clattering it into the right-back and behind for a corner.  8:05PM 17 min Bitty, niggly and not much quality to date.  8:03PM 15 min Miranda cleans out Andre Silva with a kick on the Achilles having been spun. Yellow card.  8:02PM 13 min Suso wastes the corner by getting the ball stuck under his feet, Inter break up the right and Borja Valero plays in Candreva to storm down the inside-right channel. He spots Donnarumma's bias towards the right post so he sidefoots a curling chip towards the top left corner that beats the keeper ... and the crossbar.  Candreva lifts his shot an inch too high Credit: MARCO BERTORELLO/AFP/Getty Images   8:00PM 12 min Excellent tenacity from Rodriguez after Andre Silva mugs Miranda to win the ball 25 yards out. Borini wastes the opportunity with a wayward pass that Rodriguez retrieves out by the corner flag and wins a corner off Ambrosio.  7:59PM 10 min Gagliardini launches another long ball over the top from the right-half position but puts too much on it and it skips beyond Icardi and towards safety.  7:58PM 9 min Musacchio takes out Borini with friendly fire, whacking a clearance straight into his team-mate's solar plexus. Breathe through the nose, Signore Borini!  7:56PM 7 min Borini and Suso, the Anfield alliance, link up on the right but Skitinar heads out the latter's cross and Inter break like lightning with Icardi and Borja Valero. D'Ambrosio has some space by the byline and slices his cross behind.  7:54PM 6 min Milan have some possession at the back for the first time but hustled by Icardi, Perisic and Borja Valero, they retreat.  7:53PM 4 min Milan corner following a foul on Bonaventura and a free-kick. Inter break from the corner at full pelt but Candreva, who is fed by a crisp Icardi pass, absolutely horses up his cross.  7:52PM 3 min Borja Valero, once of West Brom, brings the ball forward for Inter but can't make any headway. A long pass over the top tries to pick out Candreva running behind the Milan back three but he's flagged offside. That was mighty tight.  7:50PM 1 min Milan kick off, playing towards the Curva Nord. Inter win a throw high up the pitch on the left. Nagatomo takes and Inter move it backwards to play around the back four.  7:47PM Huddles complete Let's go.  7:02PM And now the teams in black and white InternazionaleHandanovic; D’Ambrosio, Skriniar, Miranda, Nagatomo; Gagliardini, Borja Valero; Candreva, Joao Mario, Perisic; Icardi.

Inter are unbeaten in the league and beginning to look the very model of a Luciano Spalletti side, tactically flexible, innovative and using wide players to dictate the tempo of attacks. The defence have conceded only three goals in the seven matches so far and they will stay in second but move to within two points of soaring Napoli if they manager their seventh victory of the campaign tonight. Credit: Luca Bruno/AP Milan, further back in their refashioning under new Chinese ownership, are enduring a more turbulent start to their season under Vincenzo Montella. Their impressive 2-1 victory over Udinese demonstrated their considerable promise but since then they have been beaten by Sampdoria in Genoa and were whacked 2-0 at home by Roma a fortnight ago.  Hakan Calhanoglu's red card in that match robs them of their conductor for the most important match of their season to date. They have more than enough talented players - Gigi Donnarumma, the magnificent Leonardo Bonucci, Giacomo Bonaventura and young Patrick Cutrone to name only four. But they don't look much of a team as yet, a year away from being contenders from what we've seen so far.   6:36PM TV details, start time, team news What is it?

Inter are unbeaten in the league and beginning to look the very model of a Luciano Spalletti side, tactically flexible, innovative and using wide players to dictate the tempo of attacks. The defence have conceded only three goals in the seven matches so far and they will stay in second but move to within two points of soaring Napoli if they manager their seventh victory of the campaign tonight. Credit: Luca Bruno/AP Milan, further back in their refashioning under new Chinese ownership, are enduring a more turbulent start to their season under Vincenzo Montella. Their impressive 2-1 victory over Udinese demonstrated their considerable promise but since then they have been beaten by Sampdoria in Genoa and were whacked 2-0 at home by Roma a fortnight ago.  Hakan Calhanoglu's red card in that match robs them of their conductor for the most important match of their season to date. They have more than enough talented players - Gigi Donnarumma, the magnificent Leonardo Bonucci, Giacomo Bonaventura and young Patrick Cutrone to name only four. But they don't look much of a team as yet, a year away from being contenders from what we've seen so far.   6:36PM TV details, start time, team news What is it?

Inter 3 Milan 2: Mauro Icardi completes hat-trick with late, controversial penalty to seal the derby

Mauro Icardi scored a hat-trick to pile the pressure on Milan boss Vincenzo Montella as Internazionale came out on top in a thrilling Derby della Madonnina. The Argentina striker converted a controversial 90th-minute penalty after Ricardo Rodriguez was penalised for holding Danilo D'Ambrosio to snatch a 3-2 victory at the San Siro. Icardi put the home side ahead with a deft 28th-minute finish and then after Suso had levelled with an equally adept finish, dispatched an improvised 63rd-minute volley. Montella's side thought they had claimed a point when keeper Samir Handanovic could only carry Giacomo Bonaventura's 81st-minute shot into his own net, but Icardi's late heroics condemned them to a fourth Serie A defeat of the new campaign which leaves them 10 points adrift of their city rivals. Inter enjoyed the better start and Antonio Candreva was unfortunate not to open the scoring with 13 minutes gone when he ran on to Borja Valero's pass and stabbed a shot against the crossbar with keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma beaten. Icardi scores his second with a brilliantly improvised volley Credit: REUTERS/Alessandro Garofalo Milan gradually worked their way into the game as Inter central defender Miranda found himself under pressure, although it was he who went close at the other end with a header from Ivan Perisic's cross which dropped just wide after Valero's 23rd-minute free-kick had been only half-cleared. But the home side forced their way in front five minutes later when Icardi got ahead of defender Mateo Musacchio to guide Candreva's cross inside the far post. Donnarumma was relieved to grasp a skidding Icardi long-range effort to his chest nine minutes before the break, but opposite number Handanovic had to get down smartly to block Fabio Borini's shot at his near post in the final minute of the half. Suso scores Milan's first equaliser Credit: Antonio Calanni/AP Milan thought they were back in it within four minutes of the restart when Musacchio rifled the ball into the roof of the net after Andre Silva's curling left-foot effort had come back off the post, only for an offside flag to cut their celebrations short. Handanovic had to save from former Liverpool strikers Suso and Borini in quick succession and half-time substitute Patrick Cutrone guided Rodriguez's whipped cross into the side-netting as the visitors sensed an opportunity. They were back in it with 56 minutes gone when Suso curled a fine left-foot shot from distance into the bottom corner to level. Icardi calmly converts the late penalty Credit: EPA/Daniel Dal Zennaro Matias Vecino should have restored Inter's lead on the hour when he steered another inviting Candreva cross inches wide, but after a fine save by Handanovic denied Bonaventura at the other end, they did force their way in front once again. Icardi had to adjust in mid-air as he met Perisic's cross, but he did so perfectly to volley into the far corner, although the drama continued when Handanovic could only carry the ball over his own line as he attempted to claw away Bonaventura's shot. But there was still more to come at the death when Rodriguez impeded D'Ambrosio in the area and Icardi stepped up to score from the spot. 9:40PM Full time Inter win their home derby. Milan have a hat-trick of league defeats but deserved a point, I think. I'm not disputing that D'Ambrosio was fouled at the back post by Rodriguez, simply that Miranda, Nagamoto and Vecino were doing the same at the other end at every Milan corner and attacking free-kick.  Thanks for your company tonight. Arrivederci.  9:39PM 90+4 min Eder hacks down Locatelli from behind 35 yards out, right of centre. Suso chips it down Handanovic's throat.  9:38PM 90+3 min Icardi goes off to eats some time and take a bow. Santon comes on.  9:37PM 90+2 min Still think Milan have been harshly done by given the prevailing defending at set-pieces this evening. Give that and you have to give seven more.  9:36PM 90 min It's a hat-trick for the Inter captain but I'm not sure the penalty was a stonebonker by any means. It was given for Rodriguez's tug and hold on the man at the back post.

Inter 3 Milan 2: Mauro Icardi completes hat-trick with late, controversial penalty to seal the derby

Mauro Icardi scored a hat-trick to pile the pressure on Milan boss Vincenzo Montella as Internazionale came out on top in a thrilling Derby della Madonnina. The Argentina striker converted a controversial 90th-minute penalty after Ricardo Rodriguez was penalised for holding Danilo D'Ambrosio to snatch a 3-2 victory at the San Siro. Icardi put the home side ahead with a deft 28th-minute finish and then after Suso had levelled with an equally adept finish, dispatched an improvised 63rd-minute volley. Montella's side thought they had claimed a point when keeper Samir Handanovic could only carry Giacomo Bonaventura's 81st-minute shot into his own net, but Icardi's late heroics condemned them to a fourth Serie A defeat of the new campaign which leaves them 10 points adrift of their city rivals. Inter enjoyed the better start and Antonio Candreva was unfortunate not to open the scoring with 13 minutes gone when he ran on to Borja Valero's pass and stabbed a shot against the crossbar with keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma beaten. Icardi scores his second with a brilliantly improvised volley Credit: REUTERS/Alessandro Garofalo Milan gradually worked their way into the game as Inter central defender Miranda found himself under pressure, although it was he who went close at the other end with a header from Ivan Perisic's cross which dropped just wide after Valero's 23rd-minute free-kick had been only half-cleared. But the home side forced their way in front five minutes later when Icardi got ahead of defender Mateo Musacchio to guide Candreva's cross inside the far post. Donnarumma was relieved to grasp a skidding Icardi long-range effort to his chest nine minutes before the break, but opposite number Handanovic had to get down smartly to block Fabio Borini's shot at his near post in the final minute of the half. Suso scores Milan's first equaliser Credit: Antonio Calanni/AP Milan thought they were back in it within four minutes of the restart when Musacchio rifled the ball into the roof of the net after Andre Silva's curling left-foot effort had come back off the post, only for an offside flag to cut their celebrations short. Handanovic had to save from former Liverpool strikers Suso and Borini in quick succession and half-time substitute Patrick Cutrone guided Rodriguez's whipped cross into the side-netting as the visitors sensed an opportunity. They were back in it with 56 minutes gone when Suso curled a fine left-foot shot from distance into the bottom corner to level. Icardi calmly converts the late penalty Credit: EPA/Daniel Dal Zennaro Matias Vecino should have restored Inter's lead on the hour when he steered another inviting Candreva cross inches wide, but after a fine save by Handanovic denied Bonaventura at the other end, they did force their way in front once again. Icardi had to adjust in mid-air as he met Perisic's cross, but he did so perfectly to volley into the far corner, although the drama continued when Handanovic could only carry the ball over his own line as he attempted to claw away Bonaventura's shot. But there was still more to come at the death when Rodriguez impeded D'Ambrosio in the area and Icardi stepped up to score from the spot. 9:40PM Full time Inter win their home derby. Milan have a hat-trick of league defeats but deserved a point, I think. I'm not disputing that D'Ambrosio was fouled at the back post by Rodriguez, simply that Miranda, Nagamoto and Vecino were doing the same at the other end at every Milan corner and attacking free-kick.  Thanks for your company tonight. Arrivederci.  9:39PM 90+4 min Eder hacks down Locatelli from behind 35 yards out, right of centre. Suso chips it down Handanovic's throat.  9:38PM 90+3 min Icardi goes off to eats some time and take a bow. Santon comes on.  9:37PM 90+2 min Still think Milan have been harshly done by given the prevailing defending at set-pieces this evening. Give that and you have to give seven more.  9:36PM 90 min It's a hat-trick for the Inter captain but I'm not sure the penalty was a stonebonker by any means. It was given for Rodriguez's tug and hold on the man at the back post. Icardi slots the penalty past Donnarumma.  9:34PM GOAL!!  Inter 3-2 Milan (Iacardi, pen) 9:34PM Penalty to Inter Icardi to take.  9:33PM 89 min Vecino carves open the Milan defence, gliding past a declining Bonucci but doesn't hit it with his left, passes it to Icardi who backheels to Eder. He shoots but Rodriguez dives in boldly to block. Corner.  9:32PM 88 min Bonaventura scoops a ball over Inter's backline for Andre Silva's run but Miranda goes with him and holds him off.   9:31PM 87 min Locatelli makes another abrasive foul, his second in a minute but isn't booked.  9:31PM 86 min Rodriguez has a romp forward and floods into space ceded by a retreating Gagliardini. Twenty-five yards from goal he wafts a shot past the left post.  9:29PM 85 min Inter sub: Eder on for Borja Valero.  9:29PM 84 min Handanovic reached it with his fingertips, pushed it into the post from where it rebounded into his body and over the line as the keeper continued his slide.  9:28PM 81 min Set up by another excellent Borini cross, left-footed from the right bent in towards the far post. Cutrone just misses it and puts his head in his hands but Bonaventura slides in to  stab a shot inside the left post. Handanovic dives to save and his momentum takes it over the line as the goalline technology shows. That may make it a Handanovic og.  Goalline tech Credit: BT SPORT   9:25PM GOAL!! Inter 2-2 Milan (Bonaventura) 9:24PM 80 min Perisic enters the book for whacking Andre Silva on the chin when thrusting his right arm back to fend him off.  9:23PM 79 min Milan sub: Romagnoli off, 19-year-old Manuel Locatelli comes on.  9:22PM 77 min The corner is swerved on to Perisic's head but he nods it too close to Donnarumma who drops to his knee to save.   9:21PM 76 min Until Cancela gets the chance to show us some offensive play. Vecino cuts a swathe down the right and feeds the sub who sprints to the byline and has his cross blocked by Romagnoli.  9:20PM 75 min Cancela is tracking Rodriguez up and down the line.  9:18PM 74 min Inter make a substitution, sending on Joao Cancelo for Candreva. Joao Cancela takes a note on with him that must be destroyed on reading presumably.   9:17PM 73 min Borini fires another decent cross to the back post but Rodriguez can't make much of it.  9:16PM 72 min Romagnoli latches on to a loose ball after some penalty box pinball but lofts his lob over the bar.  9:15PM 70 min Have a look at this finish from Icardi! Icardi scores his second Credit: AFP PHOTO / MIGUEL MEDINA   9:14PM 69 min When Suso scored he, like Icardi, cupped his ears. One of these days a player in Serie A will whip an ear trumpet out of one of his socks.  Suso makes the ear gesture Credit: MARCO BERTORELLO/AFP   9:13PM 68 min From the free-kick Milan play in Borini down the right and he again beats the defence with a searching cross that picks out Andre Silva but the Milan centre-forward, for once, traps it with boots of Blue Circle cement and surrenders the initiative.  9:11PM 66 min Poor Borini is penalised for handball when Nagatomo yanks his shorts, almost debagging him and forcing him to fall on the ball. A minute later he is given a free-kick when Gagliardini violates his personal space.  9:09PM 64 min Inter break quickly, Icardi bringing the ball forward at pace through the inside-right channel. he switches it over to Perisic who takes it to the byline and chips a cross back towards the penalty spot. It comes at an awkward height but Icardi improvises superbly to spring up and volley it in midair past Donnarumma.  9:07PM GOAL!!  Inter 2-1 Milan (Icardi) 9:07PM 62 min Great cross from Borini on the right, arcs towards the back post where Bonaventura traps it on the bounce and fires a low shot from eight yards at Handanovic who makes a firm save.  9:05PM 60 min Inter bundle it away and break up the right, Candreva burning off Rodriguez and finding Vecino who cuts inside on to his left and wafts a lusty shot into the hoardings.    9:04PM 59 min It's all Milan now, passing it around with genuine zip until Borini gets round Nagatomo and crosses.  9:02PM 57 min Terrific, Musacchio makes a dummy run up the right to distract Perisic which allows Suso the freedom of the inside-right channel. He transfers the ball on to his left foot and curls a shot in at the right post with his wand of a left foot. Lovely finish.  9:00PM GOAL!!  Inter 1-1 Milan (Suso) 8:59PM 54 min Miranda yanks Andre Silva over with an arm around the shoulder. Free kick that Milan send out to the left. Rodriguez sprints to the byline and spears in a low near-post cross that is met by Cutrone and flicked just wide. Clever run and almost the appropriate finish.  8:57PM 53 min Much better from Milan this half.  8:56PM 50 min Suso is playing a more withdrawn role and uses the space to thunder a left foot shot that Handanovic tips over. From the corner Borini receives the ball at the far post, not by design but by bounce, and hits a Barnes-Wallis bouncing shot through Gagliardini's legs and into the post.  8:54PM 49 min Musacchio smashes the ball into the roof of the Inter net but he was offside when Andre Silva's shot was saved.  8:53PM 48 min Chris Perry thinks Montella will be binned if Milan lose here. Who would replace him? Benitez? Vecino has a power pea-roller from 25 yards that momentarily spooks Donnarumma into a covering dive but it skidded a yard past the post.  8:51PM 46 min Nagatomo hits a cross on the run after being played down the line by Perisic but scoops it straight to Donnarumma.  8:49PM Milan sub Cutrone is on but not for Suso ... he replaces Kessie.  8:36PM Half time Well ... Inter look capable of being devastating on the break and were once. Milan are an utterly incoherent side in terms of formation and balance. I'd get Suso off and stick the lad Cutrone on.   8:35PM 45 min It bobbles back to Borini who is now at an angle of almost 90 degrees with the post so can head the rebound only into the side-netting. Perry slams Borini - it was close to Handanovic, he says.  But he hit it well and it was a good save. He sounds as though he's got it in for Borini.  8:33PM 44 min Excellent from Kessie in the centre-circle. He tales the ball back to goal, spins Gagliardini, and pelts towards the box. He splits Miranda and Nagatomo with an angled pass to Borini who fires a low shot that Handanovic saves superbly. Borini gets his shot off Credit: REUTERS/Alessandro Garofalo   8:31PM 43 min And that allows Inter to come straight back at them, Candreva teeing up Vecino to cut in from the right on to his left foot and shoot ... straight down Donnarumma's throat.  8:30PM 42 min Candreva hares down the right, checks back from the byline and sends in a tepid left-foot cross that Bonucci tries to clear with a hoof that flies straight up, forcing him to follow up with a header that doesn't get the distance he needs.  8:28PM 40 min Kessie is penalised for a foul on Gagliardini. Chris Perry, the co-commentator/analyst, keeps ripping Borini. He thinks he's a complete waste of space.  8:27PM 39 min Hand ball by Vecino gives Milan a free-kick just inside their own half but they make no progress, lose the ball to Borja Valero and wrestle him down to stop him sprinting upfield when so many of their defensive players were out of position. Not sen enough of Borini, Kessie and Suso.   8:25PM 37 min D'Ambrosio writhes after a kick on the shin from Rodriguez that ends the moment the ref gives him a free-kick.  8:23PM 35 min Skirinar is the victim of a miscarriage of justice when penalised for a foul on Bonaventura that was a good tackle. The cross is swung in from the left, right-footed, and headed over by Bonucci.  Inter captain Mauro Icardi celebrates his opening goal Credit: MARCO BERTORELLO/AFP/Getty Images   8:21PM 33 min Persisic bullocks up the left, cuts inside and goes for an Henry right-foot far-post curler that is blocked by Musacchio.  8:20PM 32 min Suso has the ball 20 yards from the Inter goal on the left out by the touchline and passs it straight into Skirinar. Wasteful and casual and allows Inter to bomb forward.  8:19PM 31 min Bonucci held up his hand after the goal but it was devilishly difficult to intercept, given the whip and bend. Milan push Inter back but know now, as they always have, that they're lethal on the counter.  8:17PM 28 min Wonderful cross, tremendous finish. Credit: MIGUEL MEDINA/AFP/Getty Images   8:15PM GOAL!! Inter 1-0 Milan (Icardi)Great cross, hit early on the run  to eight yards. Bonucci sticks out a leg on the slide to try to intercept, misses it and Icardi flicks it past Donnarumma with a perfectly judged finish.  Iacrdi scores! Credit: REUTERS/Alessandro Garofalo   8:14PM 25 min Vecino pulls back Bonaventura and is booked. Inter go mad because Bonaventura wouldn't have had the chance to run at the Inter defence if the ref had penalised Biglia for handball. He had his fist up  when it hit it and diverted Gagliardini's pass to Bonaventura.   8:12PM 24 min The free-kick soars over the box from the right and Perisic goes dogging after it towards the left corner flag. He catches up with it, spins and whips in a glorious cross that Miranda leaps to meet and power about a foot wide of the diving Donnarumma's left post.  Milan's Giacomo Bonaventura , left, and Inter's Danilo D'Ambrosio vie for the ball during the derby  Credit: AP Photo/Antonio Calanni   8:10PM 22 min Romagnoli takes out Candreva who had knocked the ball past him prior to turning on the afterburners.

Give that and you have to give seven more.  9:36PM 90 min It's a hat-trick for the Inter captain but I'm not sure the penalty was a stonebonker by any means. It was given for Rodriguez's tug and hold on the man at the back post.

Twenty-five yards from goal he wafts a shot past the left post.  9:29PM 85 min Inter sub: Eder on for Borja Valero.  9:29PM 84 min Handanovic reached it with his fingertips, pushed it into the post from where it rebounded into his body and over the line as the keeper continued his slide.  9:28PM 81 min Set up by another excellent Borini cross, left-footed from the right bent in towards the far post. Cutrone just misses it and puts his head in his hands but Bonaventura slides in to  stab a shot inside the left post. Handanovic dives to save and his momentum takes it over the line as the goalline technology shows. That may make it a Handanovic og.  Goalline tech Credit: BT SPORT   9:25PM GOAL!!

A minute later he is given a free-kick when Gagliardini violates his personal space.  9:09PM 64 min Inter break quickly, Icardi bringing the ball forward at pace through the inside-right channel. he switches it over to Perisic who takes it to the byline and chips a cross back towards the penalty spot.

He transfers the ball on to his left foot and curls a shot in at the right post with his wand of a left foot. Lovely finish.  9:00PM GOAL!!  Inter 1-1 Milan (Suso) 8:59PM 54 min Miranda yanks Andre Silva over with an arm around the shoulder. Free kick that Milan send out to the left. Rodriguez sprints to the byline and spears in a low near-post cross that is met by Cutrone and flicked just wide.

Inter look capable of being devastating on the break and were once. Milan are an utterly incoherent side in terms of formation and balance. I'd get Suso off and stick the lad Cutrone on.   8:35PM 45 min It bobbles back to Borini who is now at an angle of almost 90 degrees with the post so can head the rebound only into the side-netting. Perry slams Borini - it was close to Handanovic, he says.  But he hit it well and it was a good save. He sounds as though he's got it in for Borini.  8:33PM 44 min Excellent from Kessie in the centre-circle. He tales the ball back to goal, spins Gagliardini, and pelts towards the box. He splits Miranda and Nagatomo with an angled pass to Borini who fires a low shot that Handanovic saves superbly.

Chris Perry, the co-commentator/analyst, keeps ripping Borini. He thinks he's a complete waste of space.  8:27PM 39 min Hand ball by Vecino gives Milan a free-kick just inside their own half but they make no progress, lose the ball to Borja Valero and wrestle him down to stop him sprinting upfield when so many of their defensive players were out of position.

Credit: REUTERS/Alessandro Garofalo   8:14PM 25 min Vecino pulls back Bonaventura and is booked. Inter go mad because Bonaventura wouldn't have had the chance to run at the Inter defence if the ref had penalised Biglia for handball. He had his fist up  when it hit it and diverted Gagliardini's pass to Bonaventura.   8:12PM 24 min The free-kick soars over the box from the right and Perisic goes dogging after it towards the left corner flag. He catches up with it, spins and whips in a glorious cross that Miranda leaps to meet and power about a foot wide of the diving Donnarumma's left post.  Milan's Giacomo Bonaventura , left, and Inter's Danilo D'Ambrosio vie for the ball during the derby  Credit: AP Photo/Antonio Calanni   8:10PM 22 min Romagnoli takes out Candreva who had knocked the ball past him prior to turning on the afterburners. The Milan defender just blocked his passage (hello, Max Miller) with a bodycheck. Free kick.  8:09PM 21 min Suso lets fly form 28 yards with a left-foot swinger that scuds miles wide.

He tries to sell D'Ambrosio a dummy but he ain't buying and Bonaventura has to take on the shot anyway, clattering it into the right-back and behind for a corner.  8:05PM 17 min Bitty, niggly and not much quality to date.  8:03PM 15 min Miranda cleans out Andre Silva with a kick on the Achilles having been spun. Yellow card.  8:02PM 13 min Suso wastes the corner by getting the ball stuck under his feet, Inter break up the right and Borja Valero plays in Candreva to storm down the inside-right channel.

Borini wastes the opportunity with a wayward pass that Rodriguez retrieves out by the corner flag and wins a corner off Ambrosio.  7:59PM 10 min Gagliardini launches another long ball over the top from the right-half position but puts too much on it and it skips beyond Icardi and towards safety.  7:58PM 9 min Musacchio takes out Borini with friendly fire, whacking a clearance straight into his team-mate's solar plexus. Breathe through the nose, Signore Borini!  7:56PM 7 min Borini and Suso, the Anfield alliance, link up on the right but Skitinar heads out the latter's cross and Inter break like lightning with Icardi and Borja Valero. D'Ambrosio has some space by the byline and slices his cross behind.  7:54PM 6 min Milan have some possession at the back for the first time but hustled by Icardi, Perisic and Borja Valero, they retreat.  7:53PM 4 min Milan corner following a foul on Bonaventura and a free-kick. Inter break from the corner at full pelt but Candreva, who is fed by a crisp Icardi pass, absolutely horses up his cross.  7:52PM 3 min Borja Valero, once of West Brom, brings the ball forward for Inter but can't make any headway. A long pass over the top tries to pick out Candreva running behind the Milan back three but he's flagged offside. That was mighty tight.  7:50PM 1 min Milan kick off, playing towards the Curva Nord.

Inter are unbeaten in the league and beginning to look the very model of a Luciano Spalletti side, tactically flexible, innovative and using wide players to dictate the tempo of attacks. The defence have conceded only three goals in the seven matches so far and they will stay in second but move to within two points of soaring Napoli if they manager their seventh victory of the campaign tonight. Credit: Luca Bruno/AP Milan, further back in their refashioning under new Chinese ownership, are enduring a more turbulent start to their season under Vincenzo Montella. Their impressive 2-1 victory over Udinese demonstrated their considerable promise but since then they have been beaten by Sampdoria in Genoa and were whacked 2-0 at home by Roma a fortnight ago.  Hakan Calhanoglu's red card in that match robs them of their conductor for the most important match of their season to date. They have more than enough talented players - Gigi Donnarumma, the magnificent Leonardo Bonucci, Giacomo Bonaventura and young Patrick Cutrone to name only four. But they don't look much of a team as yet, a year away from being contenders from what we've seen so far.   6:36PM TV details, start time, team news What is it?

Inter 3 Milan 2: Mauro Icardi completes hat-trick with late, controversial penalty to seal the derby

Mauro Icardi scored a hat-trick to pile the pressure on Milan boss Vincenzo Montella as Internazionale came out on top in a thrilling Derby della Madonnina. The Argentina striker converted a controversial 90th-minute penalty after Ricardo Rodriguez was penalised for holding Danilo D'Ambrosio to snatch a 3-2 victory at the San Siro. Icardi put the home side ahead with a deft 28th-minute finish and then after Suso had levelled with an equally adept finish, dispatched an improvised 63rd-minute volley. Montella's side thought they had claimed a point when keeper Samir Handanovic could only carry Giacomo Bonaventura's 81st-minute shot into his own net, but Icardi's late heroics condemned them to a fourth Serie A defeat of the new campaign which leaves them 10 points adrift of their city rivals. Inter enjoyed the better start and Antonio Candreva was unfortunate not to open the scoring with 13 minutes gone when he ran on to Borja Valero's pass and stabbed a shot against the crossbar with keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma beaten. Icardi scores his second with a brilliantly improvised volley Credit: REUTERS/Alessandro Garofalo Milan gradually worked their way into the game as Inter central defender Miranda found himself under pressure, although it was he who went close at the other end with a header from Ivan Perisic's cross which dropped just wide after Valero's 23rd-minute free-kick had been only half-cleared. But the home side forced their way in front five minutes later when Icardi got ahead of defender Mateo Musacchio to guide Candreva's cross inside the far post. Donnarumma was relieved to grasp a skidding Icardi long-range effort to his chest nine minutes before the break, but opposite number Handanovic had to get down smartly to block Fabio Borini's shot at his near post in the final minute of the half. Suso scores Milan's first equaliser Credit: Antonio Calanni/AP Milan thought they were back in it within four minutes of the restart when Musacchio rifled the ball into the roof of the net after Andre Silva's curling left-foot effort had come back off the post, only for an offside flag to cut their celebrations short. Handanovic had to save from former Liverpool strikers Suso and Borini in quick succession and half-time substitute Patrick Cutrone guided Rodriguez's whipped cross into the side-netting as the visitors sensed an opportunity. They were back in it with 56 minutes gone when Suso curled a fine left-foot shot from distance into the bottom corner to level. Icardi calmly converts the late penalty Credit: EPA/Daniel Dal Zennaro Matias Vecino should have restored Inter's lead on the hour when he steered another inviting Candreva cross inches wide, but after a fine save by Handanovic denied Bonaventura at the other end, they did force their way in front once again. Icardi had to adjust in mid-air as he met Perisic's cross, but he did so perfectly to volley into the far corner, although the drama continued when Handanovic could only carry the ball over his own line as he attempted to claw away Bonaventura's shot. But there was still more to come at the death when Rodriguez impeded D'Ambrosio in the area and Icardi stepped up to score from the spot. 9:40PM Full time Inter win their home derby.

Inter 3 Milan 2: Mauro Icardi completes hat-trick with late, controversial penalty to seal the derby

Mauro Icardi scored a hat-trick to pile the pressure on Milan boss Vincenzo Montella as Internazionale came out on top in a thrilling Derby della Madonnina. The Argentina striker converted a controversial 90th-minute penalty after Ricardo Rodriguez was penalised for holding Danilo D'Ambrosio to snatch a 3-2 victory at the San Siro. Icardi put the home side ahead with a deft 28th-minute finish and then after Suso had levelled with an equally adept finish, dispatched an improvised 63rd-minute volley. Montella's side thought they had claimed a point when keeper Samir Handanovic could only carry Giacomo Bonaventura's 81st-minute shot into his own net, but Icardi's late heroics condemned them to a fourth Serie A defeat of the new campaign which leaves them 10 points adrift of their city rivals. Inter enjoyed the better start and Antonio Candreva was unfortunate not to open the scoring with 13 minutes gone when he ran on to Borja Valero's pass and stabbed a shot against the crossbar with keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma beaten. Icardi scores his second with a brilliantly improvised volley Credit: REUTERS/Alessandro Garofalo Milan gradually worked their way into the game as Inter central defender Miranda found himself under pressure, although it was he who went close at the other end with a header from Ivan Perisic's cross which dropped just wide after Valero's 23rd-minute free-kick had been only half-cleared. But the home side forced their way in front five minutes later when Icardi got ahead of defender Mateo Musacchio to guide Candreva's cross inside the far post. Donnarumma was relieved to grasp a skidding Icardi long-range effort to his chest nine minutes before the break, but opposite number Handanovic had to get down smartly to block Fabio Borini's shot at his near post in the final minute of the half. Suso scores Milan's first equaliser Credit: Antonio Calanni/AP Milan thought they were back in it within four minutes of the restart when Musacchio rifled the ball into the roof of the net after Andre Silva's curling left-foot effort had come back off the post, only for an offside flag to cut their celebrations short. Handanovic had to save from former Liverpool strikers Suso and Borini in quick succession and half-time substitute Patrick Cutrone guided Rodriguez's whipped cross into the side-netting as the visitors sensed an opportunity. They were back in it with 56 minutes gone when Suso curled a fine left-foot shot from distance into the bottom corner to level. Icardi calmly converts the late penalty Credit: EPA/Daniel Dal Zennaro Matias Vecino should have restored Inter's lead on the hour when he steered another inviting Candreva cross inches wide, but after a fine save by Handanovic denied Bonaventura at the other end, they did force their way in front once again. Icardi had to adjust in mid-air as he met Perisic's cross, but he did so perfectly to volley into the far corner, although the drama continued when Handanovic could only carry the ball over his own line as he attempted to claw away Bonaventura's shot. But there was still more to come at the death when Rodriguez impeded D'Ambrosio in the area and Icardi stepped up to score from the spot. 9:40PM Full time Inter win their home derby. Milan have a hat-trick of league defeats but deserved a point, I think. I'm not disputing that D'Ambrosio was fouled at the back post by Rodriguez, simply that Miranda, Nagamoto and Vecino were doing the same at the other end at every Milan corner and attacking free-kick.  Thanks for your company tonight. Arrivederci.  9:39PM 90+4 min Eder hacks down Locatelli from behind 35 yards out, right of centre. Suso chips it down Handanovic's throat.  9:38PM 90+3 min Icardi goes off to eats some time and take a bow. Santon comes on.  9:37PM 90+2 min Still think Milan have been harshly done by given the prevailing defending at set-pieces this evening. Give that and you have to give seven more.  9:36PM 90 min It's a hat-trick for the Inter captain but I'm not sure the penalty was a stonebonker by any means. It was given for Rodriguez's tug and hold on the man at the back post. Icardi slots the penalty past Donnarumma.  9:34PM GOAL!!  Inter 3-2 Milan (Iacardi, pen) 9:34PM Penalty to Inter Icardi to take.  9:33PM 89 min Vecino carves open the Milan defence, gliding past a declining Bonucci but doesn't hit it with his left, passes it to Icardi who backheels to Eder. He shoots but Rodriguez dives in boldly to block. Corner.  9:32PM 88 min Bonaventura scoops a ball over Inter's backline for Andre Silva's run but Miranda goes with him and holds him off.   9:31PM 87 min Locatelli makes another abrasive foul, his second in a minute but isn't booked.  9:31PM 86 min Rodriguez has a romp forward and floods into space ceded by a retreating Gagliardini. Twenty-five yards from goal he wafts a shot past the left post.  9:29PM 85 min Inter sub: Eder on for Borja Valero.  9:29PM 84 min Handanovic reached it with his fingertips, pushed it into the post from where it rebounded into his body and over the line as the keeper continued his slide.  9:28PM 81 min Set up by another excellent Borini cross, left-footed from the right bent in towards the far post. Cutrone just misses it and puts his head in his hands but Bonaventura slides in to  stab a shot inside the left post. Handanovic dives to save and his momentum takes it over the line as the goalline technology shows. That may make it a Handanovic og.  Goalline tech Credit: BT SPORT   9:25PM GOAL!! Inter 2-2 Milan (Bonaventura) 9:24PM 80 min Perisic enters the book for whacking Andre Silva on the chin when thrusting his right arm back to fend him off.  9:23PM 79 min Milan sub: Romagnoli off, 19-year-old Manuel Locatelli comes on.  9:22PM 77 min The corner is swerved on to Perisic's head but he nods it too close to Donnarumma who drops to his knee to save.   9:21PM 76 min Until Cancela gets the chance to show us some offensive play. Vecino cuts a swathe down the right and feeds the sub who sprints to the byline and has his cross blocked by Romagnoli.  9:20PM 75 min Cancela is tracking Rodriguez up and down the line.  9:18PM 74 min Inter make a substitution, sending on Joao Cancelo for Candreva. Joao Cancela takes a note on with him that must be destroyed on reading presumably.   9:17PM 73 min Borini fires another decent cross to the back post but Rodriguez can't make much of it.  9:16PM 72 min Romagnoli latches on to a loose ball after some penalty box pinball but lofts his lob over the bar.  9:15PM 70 min Have a look at this finish from Icardi! Icardi scores his second Credit: AFP PHOTO / MIGUEL MEDINA   9:14PM 69 min When Suso scored he, like Icardi, cupped his ears. One of these days a player in Serie A will whip an ear trumpet out of one of his socks.  Suso makes the ear gesture Credit: MARCO BERTORELLO/AFP   9:13PM 68 min From the free-kick Milan play in Borini down the right and he again beats the defence with a searching cross that picks out Andre Silva but the Milan centre-forward, for once, traps it with boots of Blue Circle cement and surrenders the initiative.  9:11PM 66 min Poor Borini is penalised for handball when Nagatomo yanks his shorts, almost debagging him and forcing him to fall on the ball. A minute later he is given a free-kick when Gagliardini violates his personal space.  9:09PM 64 min Inter break quickly, Icardi bringing the ball forward at pace through the inside-right channel. he switches it over to Perisic who takes it to the byline and chips a cross back towards the penalty spot. It comes at an awkward height but Icardi improvises superbly to spring up and volley it in midair past Donnarumma.  9:07PM GOAL!!  Inter 2-1 Milan (Icardi) 9:07PM 62 min Great cross from Borini on the right, arcs towards the back post where Bonaventura traps it on the bounce and fires a low shot from eight yards at Handanovic who makes a firm save.  9:05PM 60 min Inter bundle it away and break up the right, Candreva burning off Rodriguez and finding Vecino who cuts inside on to his left and wafts a lusty shot into the hoardings.    9:04PM 59 min It's all Milan now, passing it around with genuine zip until Borini gets round Nagatomo and crosses.  9:02PM 57 min Terrific, Musacchio makes a dummy run up the right to distract Perisic which allows Suso the freedom of the inside-right channel. He transfers the ball on to his left foot and curls a shot in at the right post with his wand of a left foot. Lovely finish.  9:00PM GOAL!!  Inter 1-1 Milan (Suso) 8:59PM 54 min Miranda yanks Andre Silva over with an arm around the shoulder. Free kick that Milan send out to the left. Rodriguez sprints to the byline and spears in a low near-post cross that is met by Cutrone and flicked just wide. Clever run and almost the appropriate finish.  8:57PM 53 min Much better from Milan this half.  8:56PM 50 min Suso is playing a more withdrawn role and uses the space to thunder a left foot shot that Handanovic tips over. From the corner Borini receives the ball at the far post, not by design but by bounce, and hits a Barnes-Wallis bouncing shot through Gagliardini's legs and into the post.  8:54PM 49 min Musacchio smashes the ball into the roof of the Inter net but he was offside when Andre Silva's shot was saved.  8:53PM 48 min Chris Perry thinks Montella will be binned if Milan lose here. Who would replace him? Benitez? Vecino has a power pea-roller from 25 yards that momentarily spooks Donnarumma into a covering dive but it skidded a yard past the post.  8:51PM 46 min Nagatomo hits a cross on the run after being played down the line by Perisic but scoops it straight to Donnarumma.  8:49PM Milan sub Cutrone is on but not for Suso ... he replaces Kessie.  8:36PM Half time Well ... Inter look capable of being devastating on the break and were once. Milan are an utterly incoherent side in terms of formation and balance. I'd get Suso off and stick the lad Cutrone on.   8:35PM 45 min It bobbles back to Borini who is now at an angle of almost 90 degrees with the post so can head the rebound only into the side-netting. Perry slams Borini - it was close to Handanovic, he says.  But he hit it well and it was a good save. He sounds as though he's got it in for Borini.  8:33PM 44 min Excellent from Kessie in the centre-circle. He tales the ball back to goal, spins Gagliardini, and pelts towards the box. He splits Miranda and Nagatomo with an angled pass to Borini who fires a low shot that Handanovic saves superbly. Borini gets his shot off Credit: REUTERS/Alessandro Garofalo   8:31PM 43 min And that allows Inter to come straight back at them, Candreva teeing up Vecino to cut in from the right on to his left foot and shoot ... straight down Donnarumma's throat.  8:30PM 42 min Candreva hares down the right, checks back from the byline and sends in a tepid left-foot cross that Bonucci tries to clear with a hoof that flies straight up, forcing him to follow up with a header that doesn't get the distance he needs.  8:28PM 40 min Kessie is penalised for a foul on Gagliardini. Chris Perry, the co-commentator/analyst, keeps ripping Borini. He thinks he's a complete waste of space.  8:27PM 39 min Hand ball by Vecino gives Milan a free-kick just inside their own half but they make no progress, lose the ball to Borja Valero and wrestle him down to stop him sprinting upfield when so many of their defensive players were out of position. Not sen enough of Borini, Kessie and Suso.   8:25PM 37 min D'Ambrosio writhes after a kick on the shin from Rodriguez that ends the moment the ref gives him a free-kick.  8:23PM 35 min Skirinar is the victim of a miscarriage of justice when penalised for a foul on Bonaventura that was a good tackle. The cross is swung in from the left, right-footed, and headed over by Bonucci.  Inter captain Mauro Icardi celebrates his opening goal Credit: MARCO BERTORELLO/AFP/Getty Images   8:21PM 33 min Persisic bullocks up the left, cuts inside and goes for an Henry right-foot far-post curler that is blocked by Musacchio.  8:20PM 32 min Suso has the ball 20 yards from the Inter goal on the left out by the touchline and passs it straight into Skirinar. Wasteful and casual and allows Inter to bomb forward.  8:19PM 31 min Bonucci held up his hand after the goal but it was devilishly difficult to intercept, given the whip and bend. Milan push Inter back but know now, as they always have, that they're lethal on the counter.  8:17PM 28 min Wonderful cross, tremendous finish. Credit: MIGUEL MEDINA/AFP/Getty Images   8:15PM GOAL!!

But there was still more to come at the death when Rodriguez impeded D'Ambrosio in the area and Icardi stepped up to score from the spot. 9:40PM Full time Inter win their home derby. Milan have a hat-trick of league defeats but deserved a point, I think.

Inter are unbeaten in the league and beginning to look the very model of a Luciano Spalletti side, tactically flexible, innovative and using wide players to dictate the tempo of attacks. The defence have conceded only three goals in the seven matches so far and they will stay in second but move to within two points of soaring Napoli if they manager their seventh victory of the campaign tonight. Credit: Luca Bruno/AP Milan, further back in their refashioning under new Chinese ownership, are enduring a more turbulent start to their season under Vincenzo Montella. Their impressive 2-1 victory over Udinese demonstrated their considerable promise but since then they have been beaten by Sampdoria in Genoa and were whacked 2-0 at home by Roma a fortnight ago.  Hakan Calhanoglu's red card in that match robs them of their conductor for the most important match of their season to date. They have more than enough talented players - Gigi Donnarumma, the magnificent Leonardo Bonucci, Giacomo Bonaventura and young Patrick Cutrone to name only four. But they don't look much of a team as yet, a year away from being contenders from what we've seen so far.   6:36PM TV details, start time, team news What is it?

Inter 3 Milan 2: Mauro Icardi completes hat-trick with late, controversial penalty to seal the derby

Mauro Icardi scored a hat-trick to pile the pressure on Milan boss Vincenzo Montella as Internazionale came out on top in a thrilling Derby della Madonnina. The Argentina striker converted a controversial 90th-minute penalty after Ricardo Rodriguez was penalised for holding Danilo D'Ambrosio to snatch a 3-2 victory at the San Siro. Icardi put the home side ahead with a deft 28th-minute finish and then after Suso had levelled with an equally adept finish, dispatched an improvised 63rd-minute volley. Montella's side thought they had claimed a point when keeper Samir Handanovic could only carry Giacomo Bonaventura's 81st-minute shot into his own net, but Icardi's late heroics condemned them to a fourth Serie A defeat of the new campaign which leaves them 10 points adrift of their city rivals. Inter enjoyed the better start and Antonio Candreva was unfortunate not to open the scoring with 13 minutes gone when he ran on to Borja Valero's pass and stabbed a shot against the crossbar with keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma beaten. Icardi scores his second with a brilliantly improvised volley Credit: REUTERS/Alessandro Garofalo Milan gradually worked their way into the game as Inter central defender Miranda found himself under pressure, although it was he who went close at the other end with a header from Ivan Perisic's cross which dropped just wide after Valero's 23rd-minute free-kick had been only half-cleared. But the home side forced their way in front five minutes later when Icardi got ahead of defender Mateo Musacchio to guide Candreva's cross inside the far post. Donnarumma was relieved to grasp a skidding Icardi long-range effort to his chest nine minutes before the break, but opposite number Handanovic had to get down smartly to block Fabio Borini's shot at his near post in the final minute of the half. Suso scores Milan's first equaliser Credit: Antonio Calanni/AP Milan thought they were back in it within four minutes of the restart when Musacchio rifled the ball into the roof of the net after Andre Silva's curling left-foot effort had come back off the post, only for an offside flag to cut their celebrations short. Handanovic had to save from former Liverpool strikers Suso and Borini in quick succession and half-time substitute Patrick Cutrone guided Rodriguez's whipped cross into the side-netting as the visitors sensed an opportunity. They were back in it with 56 minutes gone when Suso curled a fine left-foot shot from distance into the bottom corner to level.

Inter 3 Milan 2: Mauro Icardi completes hat-trick with late, controversial penalty to seal the derby

Mauro Icardi scored a hat-trick to pile the pressure on Milan boss Vincenzo Montella as Internazionale came out on top in a thrilling Derby della Madonnina. The Argentina striker converted a controversial 90th-minute penalty after Ricardo Rodriguez was penalised for holding Danilo D'Ambrosio to snatch a 3-2 victory at the San Siro. Icardi put the home side ahead with a deft 28th-minute finish and then after Suso had levelled with an equally adept finish, dispatched an improvised 63rd-minute volley. Montella's side thought they had claimed a point when keeper Samir Handanovic could only carry Giacomo Bonaventura's 81st-minute shot into his own net, but Icardi's late heroics condemned them to a fourth Serie A defeat of the new campaign which leaves them 10 points adrift of their city rivals. Inter enjoyed the better start and Antonio Candreva was unfortunate not to open the scoring with 13 minutes gone when he ran on to Borja Valero's pass and stabbed a shot against the crossbar with keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma beaten. Icardi scores his second with a brilliantly improvised volley Credit: REUTERS/Alessandro Garofalo Milan gradually worked their way into the game as Inter central defender Miranda found himself under pressure, although it was he who went close at the other end with a header from Ivan Perisic's cross which dropped just wide after Valero's 23rd-minute free-kick had been only half-cleared. But the home side forced their way in front five minutes later when Icardi got ahead of defender Mateo Musacchio to guide Candreva's cross inside the far post. Donnarumma was relieved to grasp a skidding Icardi long-range effort to his chest nine minutes before the break, but opposite number Handanovic had to get down smartly to block Fabio Borini's shot at his near post in the final minute of the half. Suso scores Milan's first equaliser Credit: Antonio Calanni/AP Milan thought they were back in it within four minutes of the restart when Musacchio rifled the ball into the roof of the net after Andre Silva's curling left-foot effort had come back off the post, only for an offside flag to cut their celebrations short. Handanovic had to save from former Liverpool strikers Suso and Borini in quick succession and half-time substitute Patrick Cutrone guided Rodriguez's whipped cross into the side-netting as the visitors sensed an opportunity. They were back in it with 56 minutes gone when Suso curled a fine left-foot shot from distance into the bottom corner to level. Icardi calmly converts the late penalty Credit: EPA/Daniel Dal Zennaro Matias Vecino should have restored Inter's lead on the hour when he steered another inviting Candreva cross inches wide, but after a fine save by Handanovic denied Bonaventura at the other end, they did force their way in front once again. Icardi had to adjust in mid-air as he met Perisic's cross, but he did so perfectly to volley into the far corner, although the drama continued when Handanovic could only carry the ball over his own line as he attempted to claw away Bonaventura's shot. But there was still more to come at the death when Rodriguez impeded D'Ambrosio in the area and Icardi stepped up to score from the spot. 9:40PM Full time Inter win their home derby. Milan have a hat-trick of league defeats but deserved a point, I think. I'm not disputing that D'Ambrosio was fouled at the back post by Rodriguez, simply that Miranda, Nagamoto and Vecino were doing the same at the other end at every Milan corner and attacking free-kick.  Thanks for your company tonight. Arrivederci.  9:39PM 90+4 min Eder hacks down Locatelli from behind 35 yards out, right of centre. Suso chips it down Handanovic's throat.  9:38PM 90+3 min Icardi goes off to eats some time and take a bow. Santon comes on.  9:37PM 90+2 min Still think Milan have been harshly done by given the prevailing defending at set-pieces this evening. Give that and you have to give seven more.  9:36PM 90 min It's a hat-trick for the Inter captain but I'm not sure the penalty was a stonebonker by any means. It was given for Rodriguez's tug and hold on the man at the back post. Icardi slots the penalty past Donnarumma.  9:34PM GOAL!!  Inter 3-2 Milan (Iacardi, pen) 9:34PM Penalty to Inter Icardi to take.  9:33PM 89 min Vecino carves open the Milan defence, gliding past a declining Bonucci but doesn't hit it with his left, passes it to Icardi who backheels to Eder. He shoots but Rodriguez dives in boldly to block. Corner.  9:32PM 88 min Bonaventura scoops a ball over Inter's backline for Andre Silva's run but Miranda goes with him and holds him off.   9:31PM 87 min Locatelli makes another abrasive foul, his second in a minute but isn't booked.  9:31PM 86 min Rodriguez has a romp forward and floods into space ceded by a retreating Gagliardini. Twenty-five yards from goal he wafts a shot past the left post.  9:29PM 85 min Inter sub: Eder on for Borja Valero.  9:29PM 84 min Handanovic reached it with his fingertips, pushed it into the post from where it rebounded into his body and over the line as the keeper continued his slide.  9:28PM 81 min Set up by another excellent Borini cross, left-footed from the right bent in towards the far post. Cutrone just misses it and puts his head in his hands but Bonaventura slides in to  stab a shot inside the left post. Handanovic dives to save and his momentum takes it over the line as the goalline technology shows. That may make it a Handanovic og.  Goalline tech Credit: BT SPORT   9:25PM GOAL!! Inter 2-2 Milan (Bonaventura) 9:24PM 80 min Perisic enters the book for whacking Andre Silva on the chin when thrusting his right arm back to fend him off.  9:23PM 79 min Milan sub: Romagnoli off, 19-year-old Manuel Locatelli comes on.  9:22PM 77 min The corner is swerved on to Perisic's head but he nods it too close to Donnarumma who drops to his knee to save.   9:21PM 76 min Until Cancela gets the chance to show us some offensive play. Vecino cuts a swathe down the right and feeds the sub who sprints to the byline and has his cross blocked by Romagnoli.  9:20PM 75 min Cancela is tracking Rodriguez up and down the line.  9:18PM 74 min Inter make a substitution, sending on Joao Cancelo for Candreva. Joao Cancela takes a note on with him that must be destroyed on reading presumably.   9:17PM 73 min Borini fires another decent cross to the back post but Rodriguez can't make much of it.  9:16PM 72 min Romagnoli latches on to a loose ball after some penalty box pinball but lofts his lob over the bar.  9:15PM 70 min Have a look at this finish from Icardi! Icardi scores his second Credit: AFP PHOTO / MIGUEL MEDINA   9:14PM 69 min When Suso scored he, like Icardi, cupped his ears. One of these days a player in Serie A will whip an ear trumpet out of one of his socks.  Suso makes the ear gesture Credit: MARCO BERTORELLO/AFP   9:13PM 68 min From the free-kick Milan play in Borini down the right and he again beats the defence with a searching cross that picks out Andre Silva but the Milan centre-forward, for once, traps it with boots of Blue Circle cement and surrenders the initiative.  9:11PM 66 min Poor Borini is penalised for handball when Nagatomo yanks his shorts, almost debagging him and forcing him to fall on the ball. A minute later he is given a free-kick when Gagliardini violates his personal space.  9:09PM 64 min Inter break quickly, Icardi bringing the ball forward at pace through the inside-right channel. he switches it over to Perisic who takes it to the byline and chips a cross back towards the penalty spot. It comes at an awkward height but Icardi improvises superbly to spring up and volley it in midair past Donnarumma.  9:07PM GOAL!!  Inter 2-1 Milan (Icardi) 9:07PM 62 min Great cross from Borini on the right, arcs towards the back post where Bonaventura traps it on the bounce and fires a low shot from eight yards at Handanovic who makes a firm save.  9:05PM 60 min Inter bundle it away and break up the right, Candreva burning off Rodriguez and finding Vecino who cuts inside on to his left and wafts a lusty shot into the hoardings.    9:04PM 59 min It's all Milan now, passing it around with genuine zip until Borini gets round Nagatomo and crosses.  9:02PM 57 min Terrific, Musacchio makes a dummy run up the right to distract Perisic which allows Suso the freedom of the inside-right channel. He transfers the ball on to his left foot and curls a shot in at the right post with his wand of a left foot. Lovely finish.  9:00PM GOAL!!  Inter 1-1 Milan (Suso) 8:59PM 54 min Miranda yanks Andre Silva over with an arm around the shoulder. Free kick that Milan send out to the left. Rodriguez sprints to the byline and spears in a low near-post cross that is met by Cutrone and flicked just wide. Clever run and almost the appropriate finish.  8:57PM 53 min Much better from Milan this half.  8:56PM 50 min Suso is playing a more withdrawn role and uses the space to thunder a left foot shot that Handanovic tips over. From the corner Borini receives the ball at the far post, not by design but by bounce, and hits a Barnes-Wallis bouncing shot through Gagliardini's legs and into the post.  8:54PM 49 min Musacchio smashes the ball into the roof of the Inter net but he was offside when Andre Silva's shot was saved.  8:53PM 48 min Chris Perry thinks Montella will be binned if Milan lose here. Who would replace him? Benitez? Vecino has a power pea-roller from 25 yards that momentarily spooks Donnarumma into a covering dive but it skidded a yard past the post.  8:51PM 46 min Nagatomo hits a cross on the run after being played down the line by Perisic but scoops it straight to Donnarumma.  8:49PM Milan sub Cutrone is on but not for Suso ... he replaces Kessie.  8:36PM Half time Well ... Inter look capable of being devastating on the break and were once. Milan are an utterly incoherent side in terms of formation and balance. I'd get Suso off and stick the lad Cutrone on.   8:35PM 45 min It bobbles back to Borini who is now at an angle of almost 90 degrees with the post so can head the rebound only into the side-netting. Perry slams Borini - it was close to Handanovic, he says.  But he hit it well and it was a good save. He sounds as though he's got it in for Borini.  8:33PM 44 min Excellent from Kessie in the centre-circle. He tales the ball back to goal, spins Gagliardini, and pelts towards the box. He splits Miranda and Nagatomo with an angled pass to Borini who fires a low shot that Handanovic saves superbly. Borini gets his shot off Credit: REUTERS/Alessandro Garofalo   8:31PM 43 min And that allows Inter to come straight back at them, Candreva teeing up Vecino to cut in from the right on to his left foot and shoot ... straight down Donnarumma's throat.  8:30PM 42 min Candreva hares down the right, checks back from the byline and sends in a tepid left-foot cross that Bonucci tries to clear with a hoof that flies straight up, forcing him to follow up with a header that doesn't get the distance he needs.  8:28PM 40 min Kessie is penalised for a foul on Gagliardini. Chris Perry, the co-commentator/analyst, keeps ripping Borini. He thinks he's a complete waste of space.  8:27PM 39 min Hand ball by Vecino gives Milan a free-kick just inside their own half but they make no progress, lose the ball to Borja Valero and wrestle him down to stop him sprinting upfield when so many of their defensive players were out of position. Not sen enough of Borini, Kessie and Suso.   8:25PM 37 min D'Ambrosio writhes after a kick on the shin from Rodriguez that ends the moment the ref gives him a free-kick.  8:23PM 35 min Skirinar is the victim of a miscarriage of justice when penalised for a foul on Bonaventura that was a good tackle.

Inter enjoyed the better start and Antonio Candreva was unfortunate not to open the scoring with 13 minutes gone when he ran on to Borja Valero's pass and stabbed a shot against the crossbar with keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma beaten.

But the home side forced their way in front five minutes later when Icardi got ahead of defender Mateo Musacchio to guide Candreva's cross inside the far post. Donnarumma was relieved to grasp a skidding Icardi long-range effort to his chest nine minutes before the break, but opposite number Handanovic had to get down smartly to block Fabio Borini's shot at his near post in the final minute of the half.

Handanovic had to save from former Liverpool strikers Suso and Borini in quick succession and half-time substitute Patrick Cutrone guided Rodriguez's whipped cross into the side-netting as the visitors sensed an opportunity.

Icardi had to adjust in mid-air as he met Perisic's cross, but he did so perfectly to volley into the far corner, although the drama continued when Handanovic could only carry the ball over his own line as he attempted to claw away Bonaventura's shot. But there was still more to come at the death when Rodriguez impeded D'Ambrosio in the area and Icardi stepped up to score from the spot. 9:40PM Full time Inter win their home derby. Milan have a hat-trick of league defeats but deserved a point, I think. I'm not disputing that D'Ambrosio was fouled at the back post by Rodriguez, simply that Miranda, Nagamoto and Vecino were doing the same at the other end at every Milan corner and attacking free-kick.  Thanks for your company tonight.

I'd get Suso off and stick the lad Cutrone on.   8:35PM 45 min It bobbles back to Borini who is now at an angle of almost 90 degrees with the post so can head the rebound only into the side-netting. Perry slams Borini - it was close to Handanovic, he says.  But he hit it well and it was a good save. He sounds as though he's got it in for Borini.  8:33PM 44 min Excellent from Kessie in the centre-circle. He tales the ball back to goal, spins Gagliardini, and pelts towards the box.

He catches up with it, spins and whips in a glorious cross that Miranda leaps to meet and power about a foot wide of the diving Donnarumma's left post.  Milan's Giacomo Bonaventura , left, and Inter's Danilo D'Ambrosio vie for the ball during the derby  Credit: AP Photo/Antonio Calanni   8:10PM 22 min Romagnoli takes out Candreva who had knocked the ball past him prior to turning on the afterburners.

Yellow card.  8:02PM 13 min Suso wastes the corner by getting the ball stuck under his feet, Inter break up the right and Borja Valero plays in Candreva to storm down the inside-right channel.

Borini wastes the opportunity with a wayward pass that Rodriguez retrieves out by the corner flag and wins a corner off Ambrosio.  7:59PM 10 min Gagliardini launches another long ball over the top from the right-half position but puts too much on it and it skips beyond Icardi and towards safety.  7:58PM 9 min Musacchio takes out Borini with friendly fire, whacking a clearance straight into his team-mate's solar plexus. Breathe through the nose, Signore Borini!  7:56PM 7 min Borini and Suso, the Anfield alliance, link up on the right but Skitinar heads out the latter's cross and Inter break like lightning with Icardi and Borja Valero. D'Ambrosio has some space by the byline and slices his cross behind.  7:54PM 6 min Milan have some possession at the back for the first time but hustled by Icardi, Perisic and Borja Valero, they retreat.  7:53PM 4 min Milan corner following a foul on Bonaventura and a free-kick. Inter break from the corner at full pelt but Candreva, who is fed by a crisp Icardi pass, absolutely horses up his cross.  7:52PM 3 min Borja Valero, once of West Brom, brings the ball forward for Inter but can't make any headway. A long pass over the top tries to pick out Candreva running behind the Milan back three but he's flagged offside. That was mighty tight.  7:50PM 1 min Milan kick off, playing towards the Curva Nord.

Inter are unbeaten in the league and beginning to look the very model of a Luciano Spalletti side, tactically flexible, innovative and using wide players to dictate the tempo of attacks. The defence have conceded only three goals in the seven matches so far and they will stay in second but move to within two points of soaring Napoli if they manager their seventh victory of the campaign tonight. Credit: Luca Bruno/AP Milan, further back in their refashioning under new Chinese ownership, are enduring a more turbulent start to their season under Vincenzo Montella. Their impressive 2-1 victory over Udinese demonstrated their considerable promise but since then they have been beaten by Sampdoria in Genoa and were whacked 2-0 at home by Roma a fortnight ago.  Hakan Calhanoglu's red card in that match robs them of their conductor for the most important match of their season to date. They have more than enough talented players - Gigi Donnarumma, the magnificent Leonardo Bonucci, Giacomo Bonaventura and young Patrick Cutrone to name only four. But they don't look much of a team as yet, a year away from being contenders from what we've seen so far.   6:36PM TV details, start time, team news What is it?

Inter 3 Milan 2: Mauro Icardi completes hat-trick with late, controversial penalty to seal the derby

Mauro Icardi scored a hat-trick to pile the pressure on Milan boss Vincenzo Montella as Internazionale came out on top in a thrilling Derby della Madonnina. The Argentina striker converted a controversial 90th-minute penalty after Ricardo Rodriguez was penalised for holding Danilo D'Ambrosio to snatch a 3-2 victory at the San Siro. Icardi put the home side ahead with a deft 28th-minute finish and then after Suso had levelled with an equally adept finish, dispatched an improvised 63rd-minute volley.

Inter 3 Milan 2: Mauro Icardi completes hat-trick with late, controversial penalty to seal the derby

Mauro Icardi scored a hat-trick to pile the pressure on Milan boss Vincenzo Montella as Internazionale came out on top in a thrilling Derby della Madonnina. The Argentina striker converted a controversial 90th-minute penalty after Ricardo Rodriguez was penalised for holding Danilo D'Ambrosio to snatch a 3-2 victory at the San Siro. Icardi put the home side ahead with a deft 28th-minute finish and then after Suso had levelled with an equally adept finish, dispatched an improvised 63rd-minute volley. Montella's side thought they had claimed a point when keeper Samir Handanovic could only carry Giacomo Bonaventura's 81st-minute shot into his own net, but Icardi's late heroics condemned them to a fourth Serie A defeat of the new campaign which leaves them 10 points adrift of their city rivals. Inter enjoyed the better start and Antonio Candreva was unfortunate not to open the scoring with 13 minutes gone when he ran on to Borja Valero's pass and stabbed a shot against the crossbar with keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma beaten. Icardi scores his second with a brilliantly improvised volley Credit: REUTERS/Alessandro Garofalo Milan gradually worked their way into the game as Inter central defender Miranda found himself under pressure, although it was he who went close at the other end with a header from Ivan Perisic's cross which dropped just wide after Valero's 23rd-minute free-kick had been only half-cleared. But the home side forced their way in front five minutes later when Icardi got ahead of defender Mateo Musacchio to guide Candreva's cross inside the far post. Donnarumma was relieved to grasp a skidding Icardi long-range effort to his chest nine minutes before the break, but opposite number Handanovic had to get down smartly to block Fabio Borini's shot at his near post in the final minute of the half. Suso scores Milan's first equaliser Credit: Antonio Calanni/AP Milan thought they were back in it within four minutes of the restart when Musacchio rifled the ball into the roof of the net after Andre Silva's curling left-foot effort had come back off the post, only for an offside flag to cut their celebrations short. Handanovic had to save from former Liverpool strikers Suso and Borini in quick succession and half-time substitute Patrick Cutrone guided Rodriguez's whipped cross into the side-netting as the visitors sensed an opportunity. They were back in it with 56 minutes gone when Suso curled a fine left-foot shot from distance into the bottom corner to level. Icardi calmly converts the late penalty Credit: EPA/Daniel Dal Zennaro Matias Vecino should have restored Inter's lead on the hour when he steered another inviting Candreva cross inches wide, but after a fine save by Handanovic denied Bonaventura at the other end, they did force their way in front once again. Icardi had to adjust in mid-air as he met Perisic's cross, but he did so perfectly to volley into the far corner, although the drama continued when Handanovic could only carry the ball over his own line as he attempted to claw away Bonaventura's shot. But there was still more to come at the death when Rodriguez impeded D'Ambrosio in the area and Icardi stepped up to score from the spot. 9:40PM Full time Inter win their home derby. Milan have a hat-trick of league defeats but deserved a point, I think. I'm not disputing that D'Ambrosio was fouled at the back post by Rodriguez, simply that Miranda, Nagamoto and Vecino were doing the same at the other end at every Milan corner and attacking free-kick.  Thanks for your company tonight. Arrivederci.  9:39PM 90+4 min Eder hacks down Locatelli from behind 35 yards out, right of centre. Suso chips it down Handanovic's throat.  9:38PM 90+3 min Icardi goes off to eats some time and take a bow. Santon comes on.  9:37PM 90+2 min Still think Milan have been harshly done by given the prevailing defending at set-pieces this evening. Give that and you have to give seven more.  9:36PM 90 min It's a hat-trick for the Inter captain but I'm not sure the penalty was a stonebonker by any means. It was given for Rodriguez's tug and hold on the man at the back post. Icardi slots the penalty past Donnarumma.  9:34PM GOAL!!  Inter 3-2 Milan (Iacardi, pen) 9:34PM Penalty to Inter Icardi to take.  9:33PM 89 min Vecino carves open the Milan defence, gliding past a declining Bonucci but doesn't hit it with his left, passes it to Icardi who backheels to Eder. He shoots but Rodriguez dives in boldly to block. Corner.  9:32PM 88 min Bonaventura scoops a ball over Inter's backline for Andre Silva's run but Miranda goes with him and holds him off.   9:31PM 87 min Locatelli makes another abrasive foul, his second in a minute but isn't booked.  9:31PM 86 min Rodriguez has a romp forward and floods into space ceded by a retreating Gagliardini. Twenty-five yards from goal he wafts a shot past the left post.  9:29PM 85 min Inter sub: Eder on for Borja Valero.  9:29PM 84 min Handanovic reached it with his fingertips, pushed it into the post from where it rebounded into his body and over the line as the keeper continued his slide.  9:28PM 81 min Set up by another excellent Borini cross, left-footed from the right bent in towards the far post. Cutrone just misses it and puts his head in his hands but Bonaventura slides in to  stab a shot inside the left post. Handanovic dives to save and his momentum takes it over the line as the goalline technology shows. That may make it a Handanovic og.  Goalline tech Credit: BT SPORT   9:25PM GOAL!! Inter 2-2 Milan (Bonaventura) 9:24PM 80 min Perisic enters the book for whacking Andre Silva on the chin when thrusting his right arm back to fend him off.  9:23PM 79 min Milan sub: Romagnoli off, 19-year-old Manuel Locatelli comes on.  9:22PM 77 min The corner is swerved on to Perisic's head but he nods it too close to Donnarumma who drops to his knee to save.   9:21PM 76 min Until Cancela gets the chance to show us some offensive play. Vecino cuts a swathe down the right and feeds the sub who sprints to the byline and has his cross blocked by Romagnoli.  9:20PM 75 min Cancela is tracking Rodriguez up and down the line.  9:18PM 74 min Inter make a substitution, sending on Joao Cancelo for Candreva. Joao Cancela takes a note on with him that must be destroyed on reading presumably.   9:17PM 73 min Borini fires another decent cross to the back post but Rodriguez can't make much of it.  9:16PM 72 min Romagnoli latches on to a loose ball after some penalty box pinball but lofts his lob over the bar.  9:15PM 70 min Have a look at this finish from Icardi! Icardi scores his second Credit: AFP PHOTO / MIGUEL MEDINA   9:14PM 69 min When Suso scored he, like Icardi, cupped his ears. One of these days a player in Serie A will whip an ear trumpet out of one of his socks.  Suso makes the ear gesture Credit: MARCO BERTORELLO/AFP   9:13PM 68 min From the free-kick Milan play in Borini down the right and he again beats the defence with a searching cross that picks out Andre Silva but the Milan centre-forward, for once, traps it with boots of Blue Circle cement and surrenders the initiative.  9:11PM 66 min Poor Borini is penalised for handball when Nagatomo yanks his shorts, almost debagging him and forcing him to fall on the ball. A minute later he is given a free-kick when Gagliardini violates his personal space.  9:09PM 64 min Inter break quickly, Icardi bringing the ball forward at pace through the inside-right channel. he switches it over to Perisic who takes it to the byline and chips a cross back towards the penalty spot. It comes at an awkward height but Icardi improvises superbly to spring up and volley it in midair past Donnarumma.  9:07PM GOAL!!  Inter 2-1 Milan (Icardi) 9:07PM 62 min Great cross from Borini on the right, arcs towards the back post where Bonaventura traps it on the bounce and fires a low shot from eight yards at Handanovic who makes a firm save.  9:05PM 60 min Inter bundle it away and break up the right, Candreva burning off Rodriguez and finding Vecino who cuts inside on to his left and wafts a lusty shot into the hoardings.    9:04PM 59 min It's all Milan now, passing it around with genuine zip until Borini gets round Nagatomo and crosses.  9:02PM 57 min Terrific, Musacchio makes a dummy run up the right to distract Perisic which allows Suso the freedom of the inside-right channel. He transfers the ball on to his left foot and curls a shot in at the right post with his wand of a left foot. Lovely finish.  9:00PM GOAL!!  Inter 1-1 Milan (Suso) 8:59PM 54 min Miranda yanks Andre Silva over with an arm around the shoulder. Free kick that Milan send out to the left. Rodriguez sprints to the byline and spears in a low near-post cross that is met by Cutrone and flicked just wide. Clever run and almost the appropriate finish.  8:57PM 53 min Much better from Milan this half.  8:56PM 50 min Suso is playing a more withdrawn role and uses the space to thunder a left foot shot that Handanovic tips over. From the corner Borini receives the ball at the far post, not by design but by bounce, and hits a Barnes-Wallis bouncing shot through Gagliardini's legs and into the post.  8:54PM 49 min Musacchio smashes the ball into the roof of the Inter net but he was offside when Andre Silva's shot was saved.  8:53PM 48 min Chris Perry thinks Montella will be binned if Milan lose here. Who would replace him? Benitez? Vecino has a power pea-roller from 25 yards that momentarily spooks Donnarumma into a covering dive but it skidded a yard past the post.  8:51PM 46 min Nagatomo hits a cross on the run after being played down the line by Perisic but scoops it straight to Donnarumma.  8:49PM Milan sub Cutrone is on but not for Suso ... he replaces Kessie.  8:36PM Half time Well ... Inter look capable of being devastating on the break and were once. Milan are an utterly incoherent side in terms of formation and balance. I'd get Suso off and stick the lad Cutrone on.   8:35PM 45 min It bobbles back to Borini who is now at an angle of almost 90 degrees with the post so can head the rebound only into the side-netting. Perry slams Borini - it was close to Handanovic, he says.  But he hit it well and it was a good save.

Inter 3 Milan 2: Mauro Icardi completes hat-trick with late, controversial penalty to seal the derby

Mauro Icardi scored a hat-trick to pile the pressure on Milan boss Vincenzo Montella as Internazionale came out on top in a thrilling Derby della Madonnina. The Argentina striker converted a controversial 90th-minute penalty after Ricardo Rodriguez was penalised for holding Danilo D'Ambrosio to snatch a 3-2 victory at the San Siro. Icardi put the home side ahead with a deft 28th-minute finish and then after Suso had levelled with an equally adept finish, dispatched an improvised 63rd-minute volley. Montella's side thought they had claimed a point when keeper Samir Handanovic could only carry Giacomo Bonaventura's 81st-minute shot into his own net, but Icardi's late heroics condemned them to a fourth Serie A defeat of the new campaign which leaves them 10 points adrift of their city rivals. Inter enjoyed the better start and Antonio Candreva was unfortunate not to open the scoring with 13 minutes gone when he ran on to Borja Valero's pass and stabbed a shot against the crossbar with keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma beaten. Icardi scores his second with a brilliantly improvised volley Credit: REUTERS/Alessandro Garofalo Milan gradually worked their way into the game as Inter central defender Miranda found himself under pressure, although it was he who went close at the other end with a header from Ivan Perisic's cross which dropped just wide after Valero's 23rd-minute free-kick had been only half-cleared. But the home side forced their way in front five minutes later when Icardi got ahead of defender Mateo Musacchio to guide Candreva's cross inside the far post. Donnarumma was relieved to grasp a skidding Icardi long-range effort to his chest nine minutes before the break, but opposite number Handanovic had to get down smartly to block Fabio Borini's shot at his near post in the final minute of the half. Suso scores Milan's first equaliser Credit: Antonio Calanni/AP Milan thought they were back in it within four minutes of the restart when Musacchio rifled the ball into the roof of the net after Andre Silva's curling left-foot effort had come back off the post, only for an offside flag to cut their celebrations short. Handanovic had to save from former Liverpool strikers Suso and Borini in quick succession and half-time substitute Patrick Cutrone guided Rodriguez's whipped cross into the side-netting as the visitors sensed an opportunity. They were back in it with 56 minutes gone when Suso curled a fine left-foot shot from distance into the bottom corner to level. Icardi calmly converts the late penalty Credit: EPA/Daniel Dal Zennaro Matias Vecino should have restored Inter's lead on the hour when he steered another inviting Candreva cross inches wide, but after a fine save by Handanovic denied Bonaventura at the other end, they did force their way in front once again. Icardi had to adjust in mid-air as he met Perisic's cross, but he did so perfectly to volley into the far corner, although the drama continued when Handanovic could only carry the ball over his own line as he attempted to claw away Bonaventura's shot. But there was still more to come at the death when Rodriguez impeded D'Ambrosio in the area and Icardi stepped up to score from the spot. 9:40PM Full time Inter win their home derby. Milan have a hat-trick of league defeats but deserved a point, I think. I'm not disputing that D'Ambrosio was fouled at the back post by Rodriguez, simply that Miranda, Nagamoto and Vecino were doing the same at the other end at every Milan corner and attacking free-kick.  Thanks for your company tonight. Arrivederci.  9:39PM 90+4 min Eder hacks down Locatelli from behind 35 yards out, right of centre. Suso chips it down Handanovic's throat.  9:38PM 90+3 min Icardi goes off to eats some time and take a bow. Santon comes on.  9:37PM 90+2 min Still think Milan have been harshly done by given the prevailing defending at set-pieces this evening. Give that and you have to give seven more.  9:36PM 90 min It's a hat-trick for the Inter captain but I'm not sure the penalty was a stonebonker by any means. It was given for Rodriguez's tug and hold on the man at the back post. Icardi slots the penalty past Donnarumma.  9:34PM GOAL!!  Inter 3-2 Milan (Iacardi, pen) 9:34PM Penalty to Inter Icardi to take.  9:33PM 89 min Vecino carves open the Milan defence, gliding past a declining Bonucci but doesn't hit it with his left, passes it to Icardi who backheels to Eder. He shoots but Rodriguez dives in boldly to block. Corner.  9:32PM 88 min Bonaventura scoops a ball over Inter's backline for Andre Silva's run but Miranda goes with him and holds him off.   9:31PM 87 min Locatelli makes another abrasive foul, his second in a minute but isn't booked.  9:31PM 86 min Rodriguez has a romp forward and floods into space ceded by a retreating Gagliardini. Twenty-five yards from goal he wafts a shot past the left post.  9:29PM 85 min Inter sub: Eder on for Borja Valero.  9:29PM 84 min Handanovic reached it with his fingertips, pushed it into the post from where it rebounded into his body and over the line as the keeper continued his slide.  9:28PM 81 min Set up by another excellent Borini cross, left-footed from the right bent in towards the far post. Cutrone just misses it and puts his head in his hands but Bonaventura slides in to  stab a shot inside the left post. Handanovic dives to save and his momentum takes it over the line as the goalline technology shows. That may make it a Handanovic og.  Goalline tech Credit: BT SPORT   9:25PM GOAL!!

Vecino cuts a swathe down the right and feeds the sub who sprints to the byline and has his cross blocked by Romagnoli.  9:20PM 75 min Cancela is tracking Rodriguez up and down the line.  9:18PM 74 min Inter make a substitution, sending on Joao Cancelo for Candreva. Joao Cancela takes a note on with him that must be destroyed on reading presumably.   9:17PM 73 min Borini fires another decent cross to the back post but Rodriguez can't make much of it.  9:16PM 72 min Romagnoli latches on to a loose ball after some penalty box pinball but lofts his lob over the bar.  9:15PM 70 min Have a look at this finish from Icardi! Icardi scores his second Credit: AFP PHOTO / MIGUEL MEDINA   9:14PM 69 min When Suso scored he, like Icardi, cupped his ears. One of these days a player in Serie A will whip an ear trumpet out of one of his socks.  Suso makes the ear gesture Credit: MARCO BERTORELLO/AFP   9:13PM 68 min From the free-kick Milan play in Borini down the right and he again beats the defence with a searching cross that picks out Andre Silva but the Milan centre-forward, for once, traps it with boots of Blue Circle cement and surrenders the initiative.  9:11PM 66 min Poor Borini is penalised for handball when Nagatomo yanks his shorts, almost debagging him and forcing him to fall on the ball. A minute later he is given a free-kick when Gagliardini violates his personal space.  9:09PM 64 min Inter break quickly, Icardi bringing the ball forward at pace through the inside-right channel. he switches it over to Perisic who takes it to the byline and chips a cross back towards the penalty spot. It comes at an awkward height but Icardi improvises superbly to spring up and volley it in midair past Donnarumma.  9:07PM GOAL!!  Inter 2-1 Milan (Icardi) 9:07PM 62 min Great cross from Borini on the right, arcs towards the back post where Bonaventura traps it on the bounce and fires a low shot from eight yards at Handanovic who makes a firm save.  9:05PM 60 min Inter bundle it away and break up the right, Candreva burning off Rodriguez and finding Vecino who cuts inside on to his left and wafts a lusty shot into the hoardings.    9:04PM 59 min It's all Milan now, passing it around with genuine zip until Borini gets round Nagatomo and crosses.  9:02PM 57 min Terrific, Musacchio makes a dummy run up the right to distract Perisic which allows Suso the freedom of the inside-right channel. He transfers the ball on to his left foot and curls a shot in at the right post with his wand of a left foot. Lovely finish.  9:00PM GOAL!!  Inter 1-1 Milan (Suso) 8:59PM 54 min Miranda yanks Andre Silva over with an arm around the shoulder. Free kick that Milan send out to the left. Rodriguez sprints to the byline and spears in a low near-post cross that is met by Cutrone and flicked just wide. Clever run and almost the appropriate finish.  8:57PM 53 min Much better from Milan this half.  8:56PM 50 min Suso is playing a more withdrawn role and uses the space to thunder a left foot shot that Handanovic tips over. From the corner Borini receives the ball at the far post, not by design but by bounce, and hits a Barnes-Wallis bouncing shot through Gagliardini's legs and into the post.  8:54PM 49 min Musacchio smashes the ball into the roof of the Inter net but he was offside when Andre Silva's shot was saved.  8:53PM 48 min Chris Perry thinks Montella will be binned if Milan lose here. Who would replace him? Benitez? Vecino has a power pea-roller from 25 yards that momentarily spooks Donnarumma into a covering dive but it skidded a yard past the post.  8:51PM 46 min Nagatomo hits a cross on the run after being played down the line by Perisic but scoops it straight to Donnarumma.  8:49PM Milan sub Cutrone is on but not for Suso ... he replaces Kessie.  8:36PM Half time Well ... Inter look capable of being devastating on the break and were once. Milan are an utterly incoherent side in terms of formation and balance. I'd get Suso off and stick the lad Cutrone on.   8:35PM 45 min It bobbles back to Borini who is now at an angle of almost 90 degrees with the post so can head the rebound only into the side-netting. Perry slams Borini - it was close to Handanovic, he says.  But he hit it well and it was a good save. He sounds as though he's got it in for Borini.  8:33PM 44 min Excellent from Kessie in the centre-circle. He tales the ball back to goal, spins Gagliardini, and pelts towards the box. He splits Miranda and Nagatomo with an angled pass to Borini who fires a low shot that Handanovic saves superbly. Borini gets his shot off Credit: REUTERS/Alessandro Garofalo   8:31PM 43 min And that allows Inter to come straight back at them, Candreva teeing up Vecino to cut in from the right on to his left foot and shoot ... straight down Donnarumma's throat.  8:30PM 42 min Candreva hares down the right, checks back from the byline and sends in a tepid left-foot cross that Bonucci tries to clear with a hoof that flies straight up, forcing him to follow up with a header that doesn't get the distance he needs.  8:28PM 40 min Kessie is penalised for a foul on Gagliardini. Chris Perry, the co-commentator/analyst, keeps ripping Borini. He thinks he's a complete waste of space.  8:27PM 39 min Hand ball by Vecino gives Milan a free-kick just inside their own half but they make no progress, lose the ball to Borja Valero and wrestle him down to stop him sprinting upfield when so many of their defensive players were out of position. Not sen enough of Borini, Kessie and Suso.   8:25PM 37 min D'Ambrosio writhes after a kick on the shin from Rodriguez that ends the moment the ref gives him a free-kick.  8:23PM 35 min Skirinar is the victim of a miscarriage of justice when penalised for a foul on Bonaventura that was a good tackle. The cross is swung in from the left, right-footed, and headed over by Bonucci.  Inter captain Mauro Icardi celebrates his opening goal Credit: MARCO BERTORELLO/AFP/Getty Images   8:21PM 33 min Persisic bullocks up the left, cuts inside and goes for an Henry right-foot far-post curler that is blocked by Musacchio.  8:20PM 32 min Suso has the ball 20 yards from the Inter goal on the left out by the touchline and passs it straight into Skirinar. Wasteful and casual and allows Inter to bomb forward.  8:19PM 31 min Bonucci held up his hand after the goal but it was devilishly difficult to intercept, given the whip and bend. Milan push Inter back but know now, as they always have, that they're lethal on the counter.  8:17PM 28 min Wonderful cross, tremendous finish. Credit: MIGUEL MEDINA/AFP/Getty Images   8:15PM GOAL!! Inter 1-0 Milan (Icardi)Great cross, hit early on the run  to eight yards. Bonucci sticks out a leg on the slide to try to intercept, misses it and Icardi flicks it past Donnarumma with a perfectly judged finish.  Iacrdi scores! Credit: REUTERS/Alessandro Garofalo   8:14PM 25 min Vecino pulls back Bonaventura and is booked. Inter go mad because Bonaventura wouldn't have had the chance to run at the Inter defence if the ref had penalised Biglia for handball. He had his fist up  when it hit it and diverted Gagliardini's pass to Bonaventura.   8:12PM 24 min The free-kick soars over the box from the right and Perisic goes dogging after it towards the left corner flag. He catches up with it, spins and whips in a glorious cross that Miranda leaps to meet and power about a foot wide of the diving Donnarumma's left post.  Milan's Giacomo Bonaventura , left, and Inter's Danilo D'Ambrosio vie for the ball during the derby  Credit: AP Photo/Antonio Calanni   8:10PM 22 min Romagnoli takes out Candreva who had knocked the ball past him prior to turning on the afterburners. The Milan defender just blocked his passage (hello, Max Miller) with a bodycheck. Free kick.  8:09PM 21 min Suso lets fly form 28 yards with a left-foot swinger that scuds miles wide. Inter have a solid shape and pattern but can't get the ball up to Perisic and Candreva this past 10 minutes.  8:07PM 19 min Inter scramble the first corner behind for another that is headed away by Perisic.  8:06PM 18 min Bonaventura makes a decent run, tacking left as he enters the box. He tries to sell D'Ambrosio a dummy but he ain't buying and Bonaventura has to take on the shot anyway, clattering it into the right-back and behind for a corner.  8:05PM 17 min Bitty, niggly and not much quality to date.  8:03PM 15 min Miranda cleans out Andre Silva with a kick on the Achilles having been spun. Yellow card.  8:02PM 13 min Suso wastes the corner by getting the ball stuck under his feet, Inter break up the right and Borja Valero plays in Candreva to storm down the inside-right channel. He spots Donnarumma's bias towards the right post so he sidefoots a curling chip towards the top left corner that beats the keeper ... and the crossbar.  Candreva lifts his shot an inch too high Credit: MARCO BERTORELLO/AFP/Getty Images   8:00PM 12 min Excellent tenacity from Rodriguez after Andre Silva mugs Miranda to win the ball 25 yards out. Borini wastes the opportunity with a wayward pass that Rodriguez retrieves out by the corner flag and wins a corner off Ambrosio.  7:59PM 10 min Gagliardini launches another long ball over the top from the right-half position but puts too much on it and it skips beyond Icardi and towards safety.  7:58PM 9 min Musacchio takes out Borini with friendly fire, whacking a clearance straight into his team-mate's solar plexus. Breathe through the nose, Signore Borini!  7:56PM 7 min Borini and Suso, the Anfield alliance, link up on the right but Skitinar heads out the latter's cross and Inter break like lightning with Icardi and Borja Valero. D'Ambrosio has some space by the byline and slices his cross behind.  7:54PM 6 min Milan have some possession at the back for the first time but hustled by Icardi, Perisic and Borja Valero, they retreat.  7:53PM 4 min Milan corner following a foul on Bonaventura and a free-kick. Inter break from the corner at full pelt but Candreva, who is fed by a crisp Icardi pass, absolutely horses up his cross.  7:52PM 3 min Borja Valero, once of West Brom, brings the ball forward for Inter but can't make any headway. A long pass over the top tries to pick out Candreva running behind the Milan back three but he's flagged offside. That was mighty tight.  7:50PM 1 min Milan kick off, playing towards the Curva Nord. Inter win a throw high up the pitch on the left. Nagatomo takes and Inter move it backwards to play around the back four.  7:47PM Huddles complete Let's go.  7:02PM And now the teams in black and white InternazionaleHandanovic; D’Ambrosio, Skriniar, Miranda, Nagatomo; Gagliardini, Borja Valero; Candreva, Joao Mario, Perisic; Icardi.

Inter are unbeaten in the league and beginning to look the very model of a Luciano Spalletti side, tactically flexible, innovative and using wide players to dictate the tempo of attacks. The defence have conceded only three goals in the seven matches so far and they will stay in second but move to within two points of soaring Napoli if they manager their seventh victory of the campaign tonight. Credit: Luca Bruno/AP Milan, further back in their refashioning under new Chinese ownership, are enduring a more turbulent start to their season under Vincenzo Montella. Their impressive 2-1 victory over Udinese demonstrated their considerable promise but since then they have been beaten by Sampdoria in Genoa and were whacked 2-0 at home by Roma a fortnight ago.  Hakan Calhanoglu's red card in that match robs them of their conductor for the most important match of their season to date. They have more than enough talented players - Gigi Donnarumma, the magnificent Leonardo Bonucci, Giacomo Bonaventura and young Patrick Cutrone to name only four. But they don't look much of a team as yet, a year away from being contenders from what we've seen so far.   6:36PM TV details, start time, team news What is it?

From the corner Borini receives the ball at the far post, not by design but by bounce, and hits a Barnes-Wallis bouncing shot through Gagliardini's legs and into the post.  8:54PM 49 min Musacchio smashes the ball into the roof of the Inter net but he was offside when Andre Silva's shot was saved.  8:53PM 48 min Chris Perry thinks Montella will be binned if Milan lose here.

Inter look capable of being devastating on the break and were once. Milan are an utterly incoherent side in terms of formation and balance.

He sounds as though he's got it in for Borini.  8:33PM 44 min Excellent from Kessie in the centre-circle. He tales the ball back to goal, spins Gagliardini, and pelts towards the box.

Chris Perry, the co-commentator/analyst, keeps ripping Borini. He thinks he's a complete waste of space.  8:27PM 39 min Hand ball by Vecino gives Milan a free-kick just inside their own half but they make no progress, lose the ball to Borja Valero and wrestle him down to stop him sprinting upfield when so many of their defensive players were out of position.

Wasteful and casual and allows Inter to bomb forward.  8:19PM 31 min Bonucci held up his hand after the goal but it was devilishly difficult to intercept, given the whip and bend.

Inter are unbeaten in the league and beginning to look the very model of a Luciano Spalletti side, tactically flexible, innovative and using wide players to dictate the tempo of attacks. The defence have conceded only three goals in the seven matches so far and they will stay in second but move to within two points of soaring Napoli if they manager their seventh victory of the campaign tonight. Credit: Luca Bruno/AP Milan, further back in their refashioning under new Chinese ownership, are enduring a more turbulent start to their season under Vincenzo Montella. Their impressive 2-1 victory over Udinese demonstrated their considerable promise but since then they have been beaten by Sampdoria in Genoa and were whacked 2-0 at home by Roma a fortnight ago.  Hakan Calhanoglu's red card in that match robs them of their conductor for the most important match of their season to date. They have more than enough talented players - Gigi Donnarumma, the magnificent Leonardo Bonucci, Giacomo Bonaventura and young Patrick Cutrone to name only four. But they don't look much of a team as yet, a year away from being contenders from what we've seen so far.   6:36PM TV details, start time, team news What is it? The Milan derby, pitting Inter against AC at their shared San Siro home. Inter are nominally the 'home' team for this game. When is it? It's today, so Sunday October 15.

Inter 3 Milan 2: Mauro Icardi completes hat-trick with late, controversial penalty to seal the derby

Mauro Icardi scored a hat-trick to pile the pressure on Milan boss Vincenzo Montella as Internazionale came out on top in a thrilling Derby della Madonnina. The Argentina striker converted a controversial 90th-minute penalty after Ricardo Rodriguez was penalised for holding Danilo D'Ambrosio to snatch a 3-2 victory at the San Siro. Icardi put the home side ahead with a deft 28th-minute finish and then after Suso had levelled with an equally adept finish, dispatched an improvised 63rd-minute volley. Montella's side thought they had claimed a point when keeper Samir Handanovic could only carry Giacomo Bonaventura's 81st-minute shot into his own net, but Icardi's late heroics condemned them to a fourth Serie A defeat of the new campaign which leaves them 10 points adrift of their city rivals. Inter enjoyed the better start and Antonio Candreva was unfortunate not to open the scoring with 13 minutes gone when he ran on to Borja Valero's pass and stabbed a shot against the crossbar with keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma beaten. Icardi scores his second with a brilliantly improvised volley Credit: REUTERS/Alessandro Garofalo Milan gradually worked their way into the game as Inter central defender Miranda found himself under pressure, although it was he who went close at the other end with a header from Ivan Perisic's cross which dropped just wide after Valero's 23rd-minute free-kick had been only half-cleared. But the home side forced their way in front five minutes later when Icardi got ahead of defender Mateo Musacchio to guide Candreva's cross inside the far post. Donnarumma was relieved to grasp a skidding Icardi long-range effort to his chest nine minutes before the break, but opposite number Handanovic had to get down smartly to block Fabio Borini's shot at his near post in the final minute of the half. Suso scores Milan's first equaliser Credit: Antonio Calanni/AP Milan thought they were back in it within four minutes of the restart when Musacchio rifled the ball into the roof of the net after Andre Silva's curling left-foot effort had come back off the post, only for an offside flag to cut their celebrations short. Handanovic had to save from former Liverpool strikers Suso and Borini in quick succession and half-time substitute Patrick Cutrone guided Rodriguez's whipped cross into the side-netting as the visitors sensed an opportunity. They were back in it with 56 minutes gone when Suso curled a fine left-foot shot from distance into the bottom corner to level. Icardi calmly converts the late penalty Credit: EPA/Daniel Dal Zennaro Matias Vecino should have restored Inter's lead on the hour when he steered another inviting Candreva cross inches wide, but after a fine save by Handanovic denied Bonaventura at the other end, they did force their way in front once again. Icardi had to adjust in mid-air as he met Perisic's cross, but he did so perfectly to volley into the far corner, although the drama continued when Handanovic could only carry the ball over his own line as he attempted to claw away Bonaventura's shot. But there was still more to come at the death when Rodriguez impeded D'Ambrosio in the area and Icardi stepped up to score from the spot. 9:40PM Full time Inter win their home derby. Milan have a hat-trick of league defeats but deserved a point, I think. I'm not disputing that D'Ambrosio was fouled at the back post by Rodriguez, simply that Miranda, Nagamoto and Vecino were doing the same at the other end at every Milan corner and attacking free-kick.  Thanks for your company tonight. Arrivederci.  9:39PM 90+4 min Eder hacks down Locatelli from behind 35 yards out, right of centre. Suso chips it down Handanovic's throat.  9:38PM 90+3 min Icardi goes off to eats some time and take a bow. Santon comes on.  9:37PM 90+2 min Still think Milan have been harshly done by given the prevailing defending at set-pieces this evening. Give that and you have to give seven more.  9:36PM 90 min It's a hat-trick for the Inter captain but I'm not sure the penalty was a stonebonker by any means. It was given for Rodriguez's tug and hold on the man at the back post. Icardi slots the penalty past Donnarumma.  9:34PM GOAL!!  Inter 3-2 Milan (Iacardi, pen) 9:34PM Penalty to Inter Icardi to take.  9:33PM 89 min Vecino carves open the Milan defence, gliding past a declining Bonucci but doesn't hit it with his left, passes it to Icardi who backheels to Eder. He shoots but Rodriguez dives in boldly to block. Corner.  9:32PM 88 min Bonaventura scoops a ball over Inter's backline for Andre Silva's run but Miranda goes with him and holds him off.   9:31PM 87 min Locatelli makes another abrasive foul, his second in a minute but isn't booked.  9:31PM 86 min Rodriguez has a romp forward and floods into space ceded by a retreating Gagliardini. Twenty-five yards from goal he wafts a shot past the left post.  9:29PM 85 min Inter sub: Eder on for Borja Valero.  9:29PM 84 min Handanovic reached it with his fingertips, pushed it into the post from where it rebounded into his body and over the line as the keeper continued his slide.  9:28PM 81 min Set up by another excellent Borini cross, left-footed from the right bent in towards the far post. Cutrone just misses it and puts his head in his hands but Bonaventura slides in to  stab a shot inside the left post. Handanovic dives to save and his momentum takes it over the line as the goalline technology shows. That may make it a Handanovic og.  Goalline tech Credit: BT SPORT   9:25PM GOAL!! Inter 2-2 Milan (Bonaventura) 9:24PM 80 min Perisic enters the book for whacking Andre Silva on the chin when thrusting his right arm back to fend him off.  9:23PM 79 min Milan sub: Romagnoli off, 19-year-old Manuel Locatelli comes on.  9:22PM 77 min The corner is swerved on to Perisic's head but he nods it too close to Donnarumma who drops to his knee to save.   9:21PM 76 min Until Cancela gets the chance to show us some offensive play. Vecino cuts a swathe down the right and feeds the sub who sprints to the byline and has his cross blocked by Romagnoli.  9:20PM 75 min Cancela is tracking Rodriguez up and down the line.  9:18PM 74 min Inter make a substitution, sending on Joao Cancelo for Candreva. Joao Cancela takes a note on with him that must be destroyed on reading presumably.   9:17PM 73 min Borini fires another decent cross to the back post but Rodriguez can't make much of it.  9:16PM 72 min Romagnoli latches on to a loose ball after some penalty box pinball but lofts his lob over the bar.  9:15PM 70 min Have a look at this finish from Icardi! Icardi scores his second Credit: AFP PHOTO / MIGUEL MEDINA   9:14PM 69 min When Suso scored he, like Icardi, cupped his ears. One of these days a player in Serie A will whip an ear trumpet out of one of his socks.  Suso makes the ear gesture Credit: MARCO BERTORELLO/AFP   9:13PM 68 min From the free-kick Milan play in Borini down the right and he again beats the defence with a searching cross that picks out Andre Silva but the Milan centre-forward, for once, traps it with boots of Blue Circle cement and surrenders the initiative.  9:11PM 66 min Poor Borini is penalised for handball when Nagatomo yanks his shorts, almost debagging him and forcing him to fall on the ball. A minute later he is given a free-kick when Gagliardini violates his personal space.  9:09PM 64 min Inter break quickly, Icardi bringing the ball forward at pace through the inside-right channel. he switches it over to Perisic who takes it to the byline and chips a cross back towards the penalty spot. It comes at an awkward height but Icardi improvises superbly to spring up and volley it in midair past Donnarumma.  9:07PM GOAL!!  Inter 2-1 Milan (Icardi) 9:07PM 62 min Great cross from Borini on the right, arcs towards the back post where Bonaventura traps it on the bounce and fires a low shot from eight yards at Handanovic who makes a firm save.  9:05PM 60 min Inter bundle it away and break up the right, Candreva burning off Rodriguez and finding Vecino who cuts inside on to his left and wafts a lusty shot into the hoardings.    9:04PM 59 min It's all Milan now, passing it around with genuine zip until Borini gets round Nagatomo and crosses.  9:02PM 57 min Terrific, Musacchio makes a dummy run up the right to distract Perisic which allows Suso the freedom of the inside-right channel. He transfers the ball on to his left foot and curls a shot in at the right post with his wand of a left foot. Lovely finish.  9:00PM GOAL!!  Inter 1-1 Milan (Suso) 8:59PM 54 min Miranda yanks Andre Silva over with an arm around the shoulder. Free kick that Milan send out to the left. Rodriguez sprints to the byline and spears in a low near-post cross that is met by Cutrone and flicked just wide.

Inter vs Milan, Serie A: live score updates

 Inter 1-0 Milan 8:36PM Half time Well ... Inter look capable of being devastating on the break and were once. Milan are an utterly incoherent side in terms of formation and balance. I'd get Suso off and stick the lad Cutrone on.   8:35PM 45 min It bobbles back to Borini who is now at an angle of almost 90 degrees with the post so can head the rebound only into the side-netting. Perry slams Borini - it was close to Handanovic, he says.  But he hit it well and it was a good save. He sounds as though he's got it in for Borini.  8:33PM 44 min Excellent from Kessie in the centre-circle. He tales the ball back to goal, spins Gagliardini, and pelts towards the box. He splits Miranda and Nagatomo with an angled pass to Borini who fires a low shot that Handanovic saves superbly. 8:31PM 43 min And that allows Inter to come straight back at them, Candreva teeing up Vecino to cut in from the right on to his left foot and shoot ... straight down Donnarumma's throat.  8:30PM 42 min Candreva hares down the right, checks back from the byline and sends in a tepid left-foot cross that Bonucci tries to clear with a hoof that flies straight up, forcing him to follow up with a header that doesn't get the distance he needs.  8:28PM 40 min Kessie is penalised for a foul on Gagliardini. Chris Perry, the co-commentator/analyst, keeps ripping Borini. He thinks he's a complete waste of space.  8:27PM 39 min Hand ball by Vecino gives Milan a free-kick just inside their own half but they make no progress, lose the ball to Borja Valero and wrestle him down to stop him sprinting upfield when so many of their defensive players were out of position. Not sen enough of Borini, Kessie and Suso.   8:25PM 37 min D'Ambrosio writhes after a kick on the shin from Rodriguez that ends the moment the ref gives him a free-kick.  8:23PM 35 min Skirinar is the victim of a miscarriage of justice when penalised for a foul on Bonaventura that was a good tackle. The cross is swung in from the left, right-footed, and headed over by Bonucci.  Inter captain Mauro Icardi celebrates his opening goal Credit: MARCO BERTORELLO/AFP/Getty Images   8:21PM 33 min Persisic bullocks up the left, cuts inside and goes for an Henry right-foot far-post curler that is blocked by Musacchio.  8:20PM 32 min Suso has the ball 20 yards from the Inter goal on the left out by the touchline and passs it straight into Skirinar. Wasteful and casual and allows Inter to bomb forward.  8:19PM 31 min Bonucci held up his hand after the goal but it was devilishly difficult to intercept, given the whip and bend. Milan push Inter back but know now, as they always have, that they're lethal on the counter.  8:17PM 28 min Wonderful cross, tremendous finish. Credit: MIGUEL MEDINA/AFP/Getty Images   8:15PM GOAL!! Inter 1-0 Milan (Icardi)Great cross, hit early on the run  to eight yards. Bonucci sticks out a leg on the slide to try to intercept, misses it and Icardi flicks it past Donnarumma with a perfectly judged finish.  8:14PM 25 min Vecino pulls back Bonaventura and is booked. Inter go mad because Bonaventura wouldn't have had the chance to run at the Inter defence if the ref had penalised Biglia for handball. He had his fist up  when it hit it and diverted Gagliardini's pass to Bonaventura.   8:12PM 24 min The free-kick soars over the box from the right and Perisic goes dogging after it towards the left corner flag. He catches up with it, spins and whips in a glorious cross that Miranda leaps to meet and power about a foot wide of the diving Donnarumma's left post.  8:10PM 22 min Romagnoli takes out Candreva who had knocked the ball past him prior to turning on the afterburners. The Milan defender just blocked his passage (hello, Max Miller) with a bodycheck. Free kick.  8:09PM 21 min Suso lets fly form 28 yards with a left-foot swinger that scuds miles wide. Inter have a solid shape and pattern but can't get the ball up to Perisic and Candreva this past 10 minutes.  8:07PM 19 min Inter scramble the first corner behind for another that is headed away by Perisic.  8:06PM 18 min Bonaventura makes a decent run, tacking left as he enters the box. He tries to sell D'Ambrosio a dummy but he ain't buying and Bonaventura has to take on the shot anyway, clattering it into the right-back and behind for a corner.  8:05PM 17 min Bitty, niggly and not much quality to date.  8:03PM 15 min Miranda cleans out Andre Silva with a kick on the Achilles having been spun. Yellow card.  8:02PM 13 min Suso wastes the corner by getting the ball stuck under his feet, Inter break up the right and Borja Valero plays in Candreva to storm down the inside-right channel. He spots Donnarumma's bias towards the right post so he sidefoots a curling chip towards the top left corner that beats the keeper ... and the crossbar.  8:00PM 12 min Excellent tenacity from Rodriguez after Andre Silva mugs Miranda to win the ball 25 yards out. Borini wastes the opportunity with a wayward pass that Rodriguez retrieves out by the corner flag and wins a corner off Ambrosio.  7:59PM 10 min Gagliardini launches another long ball over the top from the right-half position but puts too much on it and it skips beyond Icardi and towards safety.  7:58PM 9 min Musacchio takes out Borini with friendly fire, whacking a clearance straight into his team-mate's solar plexus. Breathe through the nose, Signore Borini!  7:56PM 7 min Borini and Suso, the Anfield alliance, link up on the right but Skitinar heads out the latter's cross and Inter break like lightning with Icardi and Borja Valero. D'Ambrosio has some space by the byline and slices his cross behind.  7:54PM 6 min Milan have some possession at the back for the first time but hustled by Icardi, Perisic and Borja Valero, they retreat.  7:53PM 4 min Milan corner following a foul on Bonaventura and a free-kick. Inter break from the corner at full pelt but Candreva, who is fed by a crisp Icardi pass, absolutely horses up his cross.  7:52PM 3 min Borja Valero, once of West Brom, brings the ball forward for Inter but can't make any headway. A long pass over the top tries to pick out Candreva running behind the Milan back three but he's flagged offside. That was mighty tight.  7:50PM 1 min Milan kick off, playing towards the Curva Nord. Inter win a throw high up the pitch on the left. Nagatomo takes and Inter move it backwards to play around the back four.  7:47PM Huddles complete Let's go.  7:02PM And now the teams in black and white InternazionaleHandanovic; D’Ambrosio, Skriniar, Miranda, Nagatomo; Gagliardini, Borja Valero; Candreva, Joao Mario, Perisic; Icardi.
