Inter Milan 1-0 Ac-Milan: Mauro Icardi nets at stoppage time as Luciano Spalletti’s men snatch all three points at San Siro

Mauro Icardi’s last-gasp header kept Inter Milan in third place in Serie A after they beat rivals AC Milan 1-0 at San Siro.

The Nerazzurri had to wait until the second minute of stoppage time to break the deadlock but Icardi’s close-range finish from Matias Vecino’s cross extended Inter’s winning league run to five games.

AC Milan started brightly, with Suso drilling wide from 25 yards early on and Hakan Calhanoglu volleying off target shortly afterwards.

Vecino also had a fine chance to break the deadlock as the first half drew to a close, but he fired over from 10 yards when well placed.

Opportunities were few and far between in the second half, with Matteo Politano firing a volley over for the Nerazzurri on the hour mark.

Suso wasted AC Milan’s best chance in the 80th minute when he tamely shot at Samir Handanovic before Inter captain Icardi struck in added time.
