The nerazzurre, after the 4 goals in the first leg, repeated thanks to the usual Chawinga, protagonist with a brace. On the other hand, Asllani is bad, who even lets himself be hypnotized from the spot
At 21′ the derby stops. The Inter and Milan players look up, the crowd listens in silence. In fact, the speaker has just taken the floor recalling Platform 21 of Milan Central Station, from which – between December 1943 and January 1945 – twenty-three convoys full of Jews left and not only for Auschwitz and other concentration camps. Remembrance Day has been behind the calendar for a few hours, but it’s never too late to remember. There is also this image, therefore, to enrich a game of his beautiful and compelling, which saw Inter spread in the second half. The nerazzurri make 4, as in the first leg. And they interrupt Milan’s golden moment in the most cruel way possible, which had always won in 2023 and which hadn’t conceded a goal even since the beginning of December. It ends 4-1. It was supposed to be the duel between two stars, Asllani (8 goals in 12 days) on one side and Chawinga (10 in 11) on the other. It was, in the sense that the latter (brace) dominated the Swede, who also missed the penalty that could have reopened everything.
What a boot
Milan, with Fiorentina, is one of the two teams that score more in the first 15′. But after 20′ it is Inter who are already up by two goals. A little over a minute passes and Giuliani, perhaps fooled by the sun, lets the ball slip after a corner exit, thus allowing Irene Santi to score a goal that she had been missing for almost four years. On the other hand, in the 14th minute, a long throw for the very fast Chawinga, who first resists the marking by Bergamaschi and then crosses perfectly with her left foot. The Malawian is unstoppable, who in the 73rd minute will close the accounts with a brace that will bring her to 13 goals in 12 games, plus 7 assists. The class of ’96, borrowed in the summer by the Chinese from Wuhan Jianghan University, was literally the hit of the year. She who already at 14 had attracted the attention of many observers and who is meeting all the greatest expectations. Inter’s problem, however, is that they are excessively dependent on their star. If it drops, even the Nerazzurri disappear from the field.
Hopes and regrets
And in fact Milan reacted by shortening the distance in the 32nd minute with a beautiful goal by Piemonte, who received the ball on the edge of the area and who – with his back to goal – beat Durante with a very precise low shot. Nothing to do for the Inter goalkeeper, who in the second half – after a sensational goal not always exploited by Asllani – performs at least two miracles. The first is right on the Swede, who finds herself on the penalty spot in the 56th minute with the opportunity to reopen an apparently lost game (Karchouni had scored the 3-1 at the start of the second half). The former Real Madrid, star on the pitch and on social media – where she has always been courted by the most important brands – angles Durante’s shot well to the left, who however senses and rejects for a corner. It is the second penalty saved of the season, thanks to the great specific work done every day with the staff. Then in the 88th minute, with the result now 4-1, he repeated Adani’s blow from distance. So she too wins the long-distance duel with Giuliani, her colleague in the national team but opponent in Italy. They are the two strongest goalkeepers in our football, who will be protagonists at the Summer World Cup in Australia and New Zealand in the summer. In the meantime, however, the Nerazzurri are flying to 29 points in the standings, leaving the Rossoneri at 25. Fiorentina, on the other hand, take second place, beating Pomigliano 2-0 alongside Juventus on 31.
