Different manager but same result. Twelve months ago, Inter under Luciano Spalletti were knocked out the Champions League after failing to beat PSV in their final group match at the Giuseppe Meazza Stadium.

Fast forward twelve months. Two record signings, and a new manager in Antonio Conte, and Inter were in the same situation as a year ago. Win on matchday six and qualify for the Champions League knockout stages.

And once again, Inter failed, losing 2-1 at home to Barcelona reserves, a result that will see Inter play in the Europa League in the new year.

AC Milan have confirmed the appointment of former Inter Milan boss Stefano Pioli as their new manager. The 53-year-old has signed a two-year deal with the Serie A side to replace the sacked Marco Giampaolo.

Giampaolo paid the price for Milan’s dreadful start to the season and was dismissed earlier this week after just seven games in charge. It is the shortest reign in the club’s history.

Giampaolo was axed after former president Silvio Berlusconi told Paolo Maldini and Zvonimir Boban they’d made a mistake in hiring the coach.

Inter Continue Domination Of Milan Derby

Romelu Lukaku’s second half header stretched Inter Milan’s perfect start to the Serie A season to four games as they took the derby spoils against AC Milan.

Lukaku headed home a cross from Nicolo Barella in the 78th minute to add to Marcelo Brozovic’s deflected opener.

Lautaro Martinez also had an effort ruled out after a VAR review as Antonio Conte’s side proved good value for a win which takes them back to the top of the table.

Despite their strong domestic start, Inter went into the game under a degree of pressure after needing a late Barella strike to salvage a Champions League draw at home to Slavia Prague in midweek.
