Ibrahimovic, who made his comeback after missing several games because he had tested positive for the corona virus, opened the score in the thirteenth minute. He initially missed a penalty, but coolly used the rebound.
The Swedish superstar, who also has a history at Internazionale, was also responsible for the 0-2 three minutes later. He simply tapped a cross from Rafael Leao at the far post.
Internazionale, where Stefan de Vrij was in the starting line-up, came back to 2-1 in the 29th minute. Romelu Lukaku benefited from moderate elimination of goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma. The same Lukaku seemed to deserve a penalty after the break, but that was reversed by the VAR due to offside.
AC Milan only recorded its first victory over Internazionale in competition since 2016. As a result, the ‘Rossoneri’ are still leading the ranking with twelve points from four games. The ‘Nerazzurri’ occupy sixth place, five points behind the arch enemy.

In the south of Italy, Juventus fell behind the newly promoted Crotone after twelve minutes. Simy used a penalty after a foul by Leonardo Bonucci.
Ten minutes later Álvaro Morata restored the balance by tapping in a cross from Federico Chiesa from close range. After an hour, Juventus had to continue with ten men through a red card for Chiesa, who was on the leg of Luca Cigarini.
Nevertheless, Morata put ‘De Oude Dame’ in the lead fifteen minutes before the end, but his goal was rejected due to offside after intervention of the VAR. Juventus lost points for the second time this season and can be found in fourth place with eight points.
