A header from Francesco Acerbi in the 18th minute and well placed low shot from Marcus Thuram four minutes after the break were enough for Inter to claim victory.

Milan started a late offensive with Fikayo Tomori reducing the deficit in the 80th minute from a rebound but they could not find an equaliser.

In stoppage time, tempers flared as a scuffle broke out between the players which resulted in Inter's Denzel Dumfries and Milan's Theo Hernandez being shown red cards.

A few minutes later Milan were down to nine men as Davide Calabria also received his marching orders for violent conduct.
