AC Milan grab 97th minute derby equaliser

AC Milan grab 97th minute derby equaliser

Inter, owned by Chinese group Suning since June 2016, had further chances early in the second half and although keeper Samir Handanovic was decisive a couple of times, the big Slovenian was left stranded when Alessio Romagnoli met Suso's cross at the back post to hit what initially seemed a late consolation on 83 minutes.

Vincenzo Montella's side remain in sixth place with all the draw, two points above Inter, who are now with no win in four matches.

The Milan derby, which has been dubbed the "China derby" in Italy as with confirmation that AC Milan has been sold both of Milan's clubs are now run by Chinese owners, offered up a insane finish on Saturday afternoon. Yonghong Li had claimed beforehand that Milan's new owners, just like the Suning Group, are primarily focused taking small steps on the road to recovery.

A look at the Italian league table tells us that both the Milan giants are out of title contention and the title race is between Juventus and Roma, at this business end. "We never gave up".

New Milan President Yonghong Li was in the stands for the match, which kicked off at 12:30 p.m. local time - ideal for prime time Chinese television audiences seven hours ahead.

"In the second half there was a great reaction, a feat".

Icardi doubled the lead before half-time with his first goal against Milan and the Nerazzurri had looked in firm control until a remarkable finale. "We're still missing two points from the last derby". Roberto Gagliardini sent a long ball over the top to Candreva, who shrugged off Mattia De Sciglio to chip it over the onrushing Gianluigi Donnarumma.

Milan, who had created enough chances to have led by then, found themselves two behind when Mauro Icardi turned in Ivan Perisic's low cross one minute before halftime for his 21st goal of the season.

Zapata's 97th-minute strike was given thanks to goal line technology, with referee Daniele Orsato pointing to his watch as Inter players protested the decision with Gary Medel appearing to have cleared off the line.

Elsewhere, Cagliari beat Chievo Verona 4-0, Torino drew 1-1 against Crotone and Bologna's match at Palermo ended 0-0.
