After the allotted five additional minutes signalled by the fourth official had passed, Zapata turned home via the underside of the bar when Carlos Bacca flicked on Suso's corner.

Milan enjoyed a great start, Bacca firing over from four yards seconds into the game after a mix-up in the Inter defence.

The match is booked as a "home" game for Inter Milan but AC Milan could find themselves in some kind of a renewed vigour after a new era started for the club on Friday, with Chinese investment firm Rossoneri Sport Investment Lux completing a £628m takeover of the club, taking the mantle from former Italy Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi.

With Deulofeu we are strong in the one-on-one, but I don't think it's going to be a different match from the one we played in November.

Milan are two points clear of Inter in sixth position ahead of a vital Serie A match in the race to secure European football next season.

"Our first half hour was good, we created chances, but we weren't clinical enough".

"In the second half there was a great reaction, a feat". From the resulting set-piece, Deulofeu left defensive midfielder Gagliardini standing still before dropping his shoulder and hitting a post from a tight angle, with Handanovic beaten.

Whether it heralds a fearless new dawn for fallen giants Inter Milan and AC Milan, or yet more seasons of transition and uncertainty, remains to be seen.

Tuesday Evening Weather: Getting Even Warmer
Overview: Mostly sunny skies and warm temperatures return for Thursday and Friday , with high temperatures around 80 degrees. Wednesday will be nearly the exact same pattern, with sunny skies in the morning followed by partly cloudy in the afternoon.

Goal-line tech confirmed it, and here is the image below of the ball over the line.

Roma's faint hopes of beating Juventus to the Serie A title are all but over.

Inter remain seventh, still two points behind their city rivals.

Jasmin Kurtic fired Atalanta in front in the 22nd after good work from Andrea Conti, who went past Antonio Rudiger on the left.

Daniele De Rossi nearly scored a spectacular goal but his overhead kick from the edge of the area crashed off the post.

Inter's goals in the first half came about due to some careless defending as Inter were allowed to advance the ball under very little pressure. "The referee spotted it and added on the right amount of stoppage time".

Elsewhere, Cagliari beat Chievo Verona 4-0, Torino drew 1-1 against Crotone and Bologna's match at Palermo ended 0-0.
