29 mins: GOAL! Inter 1-0 Milan As simple as that. Handball. Maicon sweeps one in from the right, Adriano drops off Maldini and Adriano guides the ball into the net with as clear a handball as you’re ever likely to see. Milan are incensed, Adriano is unrepentent and trundles over to celebrate with Mourinho. In truth it was a great cross and Adriano might easily have headed in. But that’s a certain handball and how none of the officials saw it is incredible.
43 mins: GOAL! Inter 2-0 Milan (Stankovic) That’s a proper goal. A beautiful finish from Stankovic and the complete opposite of his dawdling effort earlier. This time, a free kick around about the half-way line is clipped in from the left. Ibrahimovic jumps highest and nods it down wonderfully into the surging run of Stankovic, who has left his marker Pirlo for dead. He thumps it right footed form 15 yards past Abbiati and that’s a terrific strike.
71 mins: GOAL! Inter 2-1 Milan (Pato) Well, well, well. An excellent goal from Milan and there could yet be something in this. Jankulovski goes haring down the left and he’s fed beautifully from the edge of the area. Pato drops off to the penalty spot area and Jankulovski picks him out. He doesn’t miss from there and smashes it past Julio Cesar from seven yards.
Full-time: That, folks, is that. The final action comes when Ambrosini is flagged offside right on the edge of the Inter box and Jose Mourinho’s players are wily enough to waste the remaining seconds. Then, peep, peep. That’s your lot.
