Inter’s lethal finisher scored an injury-time winner in a derby notable for the feelgood factor among both sets of fans
“An assassin.” That was how Gonzalo Higuaín described Mauro Icardi in the build-up to Sunday’s Derby della Madonnina. Invited by Gazzetta dello Sport to name the attributes he would most like to steal from his compatriot, the Milan striker replied: “His heading ability and his sense of timing.”
It appears that no such theft could be arranged. Icardi demonstrated both qualities as he arrived to head home a 91st-minute winner in a match that had looked certain to finish as a goalless stalemate.

Milan is blue and black! ⚫
