‘Hospital, hospitals, hospitals’ as Milan battle for points

Milano’s victory over Inter is a fitting moment for a club that has become synonymous with the title, but the title could be lost forever if Milan’s performance is anything like the first half of the season.

The Rossoneri had chances to go ahead when the Nerazzurri’s Mario Mandzukic found space inside the penalty area and struck a low shot beyond goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma with the last kick of the game.

Milan are still a long way from the title but they can afford to be patient, and they need to play with the same kind of intensity as they did in the opening 45 minutes.

The Nerazzurs were not the only team to go close, but they could not stop Mario Mandzinic from firing past the helpless Donnarums, who made the tackle.

Milano have won just once in the last 12 meetings between the clubs.
