AC Milan were obliterated by Inter Milan in the derby last night. The Rossoneri were humiliated 5-1 as the side were no match for their cross city rivals. Stefano Pioli has no reply for Simone Inzaghi as this marked 5 straight derby wins for the latter and an aggregate score of 12-1 in 2023 for the Nerazzuri.

Milan perfect start to the season has hit a wall while Inter continue with the 100% record and announce themselves as Scudetto favourites. The new signings for the Rossoneri had a rude awakening as none seemed up to the task in such a big game.

The one positive moment for Milan was Rafael Leao’s goal to cut the deficit. Leao was played in with a through ball by Olivier Giroud as he collected the ball in the box and placed the ball under Sommer to get us our first goal against Inter in over 400 minutes.

Pioli will need to push the side to regroup and bounce back in the Champions League on Tuesday against Newcastle United and be ready to put on a show for the upcoming tough league games.
