[Image: 15401541152209.jpg]

Mauro Icardi was the hero as his last minute header gave Inter a 1-0 win over AC Milan in the first Derby della Madonnina of the season.Both sides had first half goals ruled out for offside in a match void of clear cut chances, sbo666  but the Nerazzurri captain got his fifth goal in his last four games against Milan to give Inter all three points right at the death.The result gives Inter their seventh win in succession, in all competitions, and fifth in a row in Serie A - in a single season - for the first time since January 2017.Inter had already put the ball in the back of the net after 10 minutes, but it was ruled out for offside as Matias Vecino touched the ball on its way to Icardi.Just before the break, Milan had the ball in the other net as Alessio Romagnoli poked home a Suso cross, sbo666 but on its way into the area it came off the back of Mateo Musacchio, and thus the goal was ruled out for offside too.Inter started the second half in much better fashion, putting Milan under pressure, but were unable to create any good chances on goal.Both teams tired as the match went on, with chances becoming less and less frequent, though it was Inter who dominated the ball.However, in stoppage time Icardi was positioned perfectly to nod home a wonderful Vecino cross and to win the derby for his side. sbo666
