It took half a slip on a rainy night from Zlatan Ibrahimovic and half a touch by Zidane’s Rachel, Marco Materazzi for referee Paolo Tagliavento to call it a penalty within five minutes of kickoff. Which Ibra scored with ease and minimal celebration against his former club who have already cashed in on him big time.
Things seem to be going downhill for Inter Milan and Rafael Benitez since Gareth Bale made an astonishing second half come back for Tottenham in the UEFA Champions League group game. In Serie A, Inter have only won one of their last five games and that was a narrow 1-0 win over Genoa. After losing the Milan derby, Inter sit at fifth and AC Milan have now acquired pole position one point ahead of Lazio.
We all wondered what will end the dominance of Inter in Italy and then they hired Jose Mourinho who got them the treble and it seems like Inter will be dominating Europe now. Well, we need to wonder no more as we now know that all that Serie A needed to end the dominance of Inter in Italy and Europe was to instal Rafa Benitez as the coach of Inter. Tada!
Rafa Benitez said in a post-match press conference:
“Oops! I did it again.”
Inter Milan 0-1 AC Milan
