“A beautiful derby: good one to celebrate 80 years of Giovanni Trappattoni. An emotional and passionate derby just as the life of Trap.”
That was how Luigi Garlando began his article on the Gazzetta dello Sport a few hours after the Milan derby, one that had thousands of emotions.
“Inter won because they gave more heart, more pride and because Spalletti had a decisive idea: playing Vecino as a trequartista. The Uruguayan’s goal was created by Lautaro who then scored the third. In the first leg, it was Vecino who assisted Icardi for the winning goal as well. Il Toro works for others. His goal and assist will continue to distance Mauro Icardi and Wanda Nara away from this team even more. The numbers speak for themselves: with Icardi, Inter won 10 out of 20 games and without him, it was 6 out of 8. After the third goal, Lautaro brought a hand to his ear, only one, a sort of metaphor to say that the Inter number 10 still feels like half of his countryman, for now.”
This victory, according to Luigi Garlando, came “from a collective and powerful and proud reaction.”
