The 39-year-old Swedish veteran went on to score the rebound, helping the Rossoneri achieve their first derby win in two years in the league.

Romelu Lukaku got Inter back in it before the break but, despite second-half pressure, Antonio Conte's side could not force an equaliser as their four-match derby winning streak was ended. He will be Inter's starting goalkeeper throughout this season.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic nearly scored the third goal after a cross in the penalty area but Inter's defense ended her danger.

After being sent through on goal by Hakan Calhanoglu, the Swede drew a clumsy foul from Aleksandar Kolarov and took the resulting penalty himself.

He then struck again three minutes later after latching on a Rafael Leao's cross.

Lukaku made no mistake in the 28th minute as he tucked in from close range after Gianluigi Donnarumma inadvertently touched Ivan Perisic's driven cross into his path. After the Zlatan-Lukaku private duel, it was 2-1 for Zlatan in the end.

The attempts of the Inter players did not stop, as Niccolo Barrilla nearly equalized in the 32nd minute, after receiving a pass in the penalty area of Milan and towards the direction, but Donnarumma had a different opinion.
