Thousands of kilometers from home, Inter won the Super Cup at the expense of their city rivals AC Milan

The Italian Super Cup was a Milan heist between Internazionale and AC Milan, in which the Black and Whites won. Far from home, in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia, Inter conquered the Supercopa with a convincing 3-0 win. The cup winners beat the previous season’s national champions.

Energetic Inter coach Simone Inzaghi was delighted. It was a bitter blow for AC Milan. Because although they are second by one point against Inter, the extension of the league is a long way off as Napoli are nine points behind in the league.

There was a prize to be snatched in Saudi Arabia, but AC Milan had little say throughout the game. It was a fast paced and bumpy game from the first minute and Internazionale never really got in trouble.

Inter defender Denzel Dumfries remained on the bench throughout the match. His colleague Stefan de Vrij was allowed to play in the last ten minutes.

Dzeko man of the match

The pressure that Inter put on their city rivals’ goal in the first half was intense. Federico Dimarco completed a soft attack just ten minutes after Nicolo Barella swept past the offside line in one move.

Man of the match Edin Dzeko was also knocked down ten minutes later, childishly clipping Sandro Tonali and deftly placing the ball on the far post.

As before the timeout, AC Milan had more possession after the timeout. Although they moved a little closer to the opponents’ stronghold after the break, Internazionale’s leadership was never really threatened.

In the final stages, the inconspicuous Argentine striker Lautaro Martinez hit the ball in the far corner from the right flank, thus determining the fight for the Italian Super Cup more than four thousand kilometers from the front door.
