Giroud scores a brace as Milan beat Inter

Olivier Giroud scores a brace in the second half to give the Rossoneri three points. AC Milan are now just one point behind Inter. However, Inter Milan still have a match in hand but, their loss has opened the Scudetto race. Inter could have put the game to bed in the first half, but they missed a lot of chances. Mike Maignan had a great game as he denied the Nerazzurri several times and kept the score to 1-0 in the first half.

Inter had a goal in the first ten minutes of the match, but it got denied by VAR. Inter took nine shots in the first half, but they managed to find the back of the net only once. They could have taken the lead in the 25th minute when Lautaro laid the ball to Barella. However, the Italian midfielder could not keep his shot on target.

An even bigger chance went begging and, it had Inzaghi down to his knees. Lautaro played a through ball to Dumfries, who took a touch and fired his shot straight at Maignan. Inter finally got their goal in the 37th minute with a corner as Perisic was free in the box and, Calhanoglu picked him. The Croatian finished with a volley to give Inter the lead.
