The last time an Italian club won the UCL was in 2010 when Jose Mourinho’s Inter Milan completed the treble. However, even though the clubs aren’t doing well in Europe, the competition has improved a lot domestically, with Inter Milan, AC Milan, and Napoli competing for the Serie A title.

Inter were ahead in the table by four points before their match against AC Milan. The Milan derby wasn’t just important for the Serie A table, it’s about who gets the bragging rights in the city, and this time, AC Milan came out on top.

A thrilling Milan derby decided by a fan?

The game lived up to the hype as the match was hotly contested by both sides, with chances flying all around the pitch. However, Ivan Perisic scored first for Inter Milan from a corner. The game came to a deadlock and neither side could score till the final fifteen minutes.

An AC Milan fan who was watching the match switched his seat to change his team’s fortunes in the 70th minute. That seemed to do the trick for the club as Olivier Giroud netted the equalizer after five minutes in the 75th minute. As if that wasn’t dramatic enough, Giroud went to score the winner of the game three minutes later as the fan went wild.
