Roberto Gagliardini praises Inter teammates after a great performance in the Milan Derby. Inter won the Derby Della Madonnina comfortably as they thrashed AC Milan 3-0 and are now four points clear at the top of the table. Gagliardini subbed in at 78 minutes and replaced Eriksen to assure the win and clean sheet for Inter. He sang the praises of his Nerazzurri teammates by posting on Instagram: “Team, group, family. In one word: Inter.”
Inter started the game really well and got the lead in the first 5 minutes. AC Milan were nowhere to be seen in the 1st half, barring one or two chances. The Rossoneri were better in the 2nd half and created some chances and had more possession. But Handanovic made brilliant saves to deny Zlatan, and Inter maintained their lead. Moreover, Lautaro finished off a superb team attack in the second half to double the advantage. Then Lukaku got the goal for his overall efforts. He made a great run forward and finished with a strong strike after the hour mark to put the game to bed.
Gagliardini praises Inter teammates over their Derby win
Inter are now the favourites to win the Scudetto as they have a lead of four points. The Nerazzurri will have to be consistent and perform just like they did against AC Milan. Inter truly played like one group, a family, and were too hot to handle for the Rossoneri. Moreover, the Nerazzurri were over the moon after the third goal as could be seen in their celebrations. Furthermore, the dressing room environment is very warm and vibrant and everyone is confident to go all the way for the title. Also, Inter have an advantage as they are out of Champions League and Coppa Italia, so they can give their full focus on Serie A.
Inter will now face Genoa on Sunday.
