Milan, April 15 (QNA) – AC Milan rescued a 2-2 derby draw against Inter with the last kick of the match as they dealt a blow to their city rivals’ European hopes.

First-half goals from Antonio Candreva and Mauro Icardi had looked set to give Stefano Pioli’s men a much-needed win in their Europa League chase but Alessio Romagnoli and Cristian Zapata salvaged a draw with goals in the 83rd and 97th minutes.

The match was AC Milan’s first since they were sold to new Chinese owners in a deal worth 740 million Euros. The Serie A club have been owned by former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi since 1986. It was arguably the club’s greatest era as they won eight league titles and five European championships.

The draw kept Milan in sixth place, two points ahead of their arch-rivals and two points behind European-qualification places. (QNA)
