Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored twice in the first half of Saturday’s entertaining Derby della Madonnina to give AC Milan a 2-1 win over Inter Milan, their first victory over their city rivals in Serie A since January 2016.

The 39-year-old former Manchester United striker put AC Milan in front after 13 minutes, tapping the ball in from the rebound after his penalty was saved by Samir Handanovic

Ibrahimovic struck again three minutes later from Rafael Leao’s cross.

In a breathless first half, another Manchester United star Romelu Lukaku pulled one back for inter in the 29th minute, the first Serie A goal Milan have conceded this season.

Inter were awarded a penalty in the 75th minute but it was revoked for offside in the build-up.

Milan have won all four games so far and lead the standings with 12 points, while Inter has seven after their first defeat of the season.
