What enter a little more in the heart of the Milanese tifosi. By scoring a double for AC Milan in the last quarter of an hour, Olivier Giroud tipped the Milan derby (1-2) on Saturday February 5. The fight for the title is completely relaunched, since the Rossoneri come back to a small point behind Inter.

Holder in tip in the absence of Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Achilles tendon), Giroud waited for the 75th minute to highlight. The former Chelsea striker was opportunistic to equalize as Inter led from the 38th. He doubled the lead three minutes later, after a nice back-to-goal control.

The opportunity to pick up the ovation of the tifosi rossoneri, in this San Siro stadium, where the Frenchman is enjoying himself more and more and where he has already scored eight goals, in all competitions.

This defeat is however a big setback for the Nerazzurri, beaten for the second time in the Championship only. They will move next weekend to Naples (3rd), which can also return to a point, Sunday (3 p.m.), if successful in Venice.
