Stunned by the missed ball, Milan resisted vigorously and equalized the score. A well-weighted pass from Sandro Tonali allowed Leau to shoot from the first try, and the Portuguese masterfully found the far corner. Milan’s intensity only increased after the leveling, with Olivier Giroud and Theo Hernandez missing out on impressive attempts to take the lead.

Stefano Pioli’s men completed their comeback and took the lead after the break. Leão’s rollback from the left flank found Giroud, who found space, while the Frenchman’s first shot hit the far corner, out of reach of Samir Handanović. The same pair connected again at the hour mark, doubling the hosts’ lead with a spectacular goal. Giroud’s shot gave the ball to Leão, who passed Alessandro Bastoni and Stéphane De Vrij to go on to score the second goal of the tournament.

Inzaghi turned to his bench and Edin Dzeko struck in an instant, cutting the away deficit in half within three minutes of his entry, meeting a cross from Matteo Darmian at the near post and blasting past Mike Meignan. The momentum was on Inter’s side and the hosts’ French defender was ready to deflect a Lautaro Martínez header and then made an impressive save to block a Hakan Calhanoglu shot from range.

Despite strong pressure from Inter, Milan managed to score a priceless victory over their main rivals.

Thus, after five rounds, the hosts have 11 points, the guests have nine. In the next match, Milan will play in a derby with Sampdoria, and Inter will play with the team of Torino.
