Zapata’s 97th minute Milan derby heart-breaker

Cristian Zapata scored in the 7 minutes into stoppage time to snatch a point for AC Milan in the Milan derby against Inter at the San Siro.

Inter, who are now 7th in Serie A, were 2-0 up at half time thanks to goals from Antonio Candreva and Mauro Icardi.

It took until the 83rd minute for Milan to grab a goal back via a Alessio Romagnoli toe-poke.


A hefty amount of stoppage time was added due to a lengthy delay after José Sosa had gone down injured.

With almost the last kick of the game, Zapata’s shot cannoned off the bar and fractionally over the line. Goal-line technology notified the referee of this and the goal was given.

The ending will please AC Milans new owners after a Chinese consortium took over the club on Friday.

The reverse fixture saw a vice versa scenario with Ivan Perisic scoring an injury time equalizer for Inter in Decembers 2-2 draw.

Milan stay 6th.


Debate Points

Where does the Milan derby rank in the football world of derbies?

Should other technology be introduced after goal-line technology has worked immensely well?
