Perisic earns In­ter draw in Mi­lan derby

Fiji Sun - - Sports -

Mi­lan: Ivan Perisic res­cued a dra­matic 2-2 derby draw for In­ter Mi­lan in Ste­fano Pi­oli’s first game in charge. Suso had looked set to be AC Mi­lan’s match-win­ning hero with two goals, be­fore Perisic pounced in in­jury time. Ex-Liver­pool winger Suso curled home Mi­lan’s opener be­fore An­to­nio Can­dreva smashed in an equaliser. Suso scored again from a jink­ing run but Perisic turned home a cor­ner from close range to deny Mi­lan the chance to go 11 points above their ri­vals. For­mer Lazio boss Pi­olo took charge of a Ner­az­zurri game for the first time, hav­ing been named Frank de Boer’s re­place­ment dur­ing the in­ter­na­tional break. A derby de­feat would have been the worst start imag­in­able, es­pe­cially one that would have left them 11 points be­hind their ri­vals. Other
