The Serie A is now well underway and the first Derby della Madonnina, aka the Milan Derby, has been played, and keeping with the trend of most Italian games this season, the real action was left until the second half.
After an uneventful first half, which saw both teams knotted up in a scoreless draw, both teams came out looking for the winner in the subsequent half. It didn’t take long for the game’s first goal as Colombian midfielder and Inter star Freddy Guarín netted the only goal of the game and boy, was it a laser.
The play started when Davide Santon fed a nice through ball to Guarín and Guarín dribbled away from two A.C. Milan defenders and delivered a shot from right outside the penalty arc. The ball stayed low, beat a sprawling Milan keeper Christian Abbiati, and found its way into the bottom right corner of the goal for the fantastic tally.
Take a look at Guarín’s sublime goal:

A fantastic goal from a fantastic player. This goal proved to be the difference, although A.C. Milan were close to the equalizer through some strikes from Mario Ballotelli and Giacomo Bonaventura that were very close to finding the mark.
However, Inter proved to be the superior team and will hold the bragging rights as the Kings of Milan until their next Serie A match-up on New Year’s Day 2016.
