AC Milan fought back in last quarter of the second half to score twice and snatch a draw. Allesio Romagnoli volleyed Suso cross to make it 2-1, and from the last kick of the match Cristian Zapata put the ball inside the goal line which goalline technology confirmed as Gary Medel tried to head out.

AC Milan were on front foot from the very first kick but it was Internazionale who had the lead. They could have easily 4-0 up in first half, if Ivan Rakitic and Icardi haven’t had perished their chances. Rossoneri were good in attack, but their final ball was always missing in the first half. Nerazzurri took the advantage and hit them on counter, and they were successful twice. But, Rossoneri good work paid them in later half of the game.
