Derby Delight for AC Milan

AC Milan came out 2-1 winners over Inter in a pulsating derby win.

The Rossoneri dominated the first half and Filippo Inzaghi had two opportunities to break the deadlock.

The first came when the striker evaded the offside trap on Ricky Kaka's adroit pass but goalkeeper Julio Cesar blocked the firm effort.

Then the pair linked again and this time the frontman sent a diving header just past the post.

The 34-year-old finally got on the scoresheet in the 52nd minute and this time the Italy international had the simple task of heading home at the near post following Kaka's curling delivery from the byline.

Four minutes later and the San Siro was on its feet again as Massimo Ambrosini harried Patrick Vieira into a loose pass and Kaka raced on to the ball to finish coolly under Julio Cesar.

A stunned Inter finally found some momentum coming forward and were rewarded for their efforts in the 76th minute when Julio Ricardo Cruz curled home a delightful free-kick.

A hectic final period saw the Nerazzurri press for the equaliser and a free-kick from Cristian Chivu brought out a flying save from goalkeeper Zeljko Kalac.
