Recap

Ezequiel Schelotto’s goal just three minutes after his introduction helped Inter Milan to a share of the points in Sunday’s derby against AC Milan.

Having replaced Esteban Cambiasso in the 69th minute Schelotto, who joined Inter from Atalanta last month, cleverly ran in between the Milan defenders and was able to head Yuto Nagatomo’s cross past Milan goalkeeper Christian Abbiati to restore level terms in the 71st minute.

Milan, who controlled large swaths of the match, went ahead in the 21st minute through Stephan El Shaarawy’s 19th goal of the season in all competitions—the Italy international finishing with the outside of his boot after receiving a delightful pass from Kevin-Prince Boateng.

From there the Rossoneri were well on top and but for a standout performance from Inter ‘keeper Samir Handanovic would have surely led by two or three goals at halftime. Mattia de Sciglio was especially dominant, and Mario Balotelli came close to adding to Milan’s lead on three occasions before the break.

But Inter were a different side after the restart. Manager Andrea Stramaccioni shifted Javier Zanetti to the right flank to neutralize de Sciglio—which he did—and was rewarded for introducing Schelotto when the Buenos Aires-born winger tied things up with less than 20 minutes remaining.
