Engraved in History: The Six

Milan defeats Inter 0: 6 2000/01 season in Serie A | Cycle 30

A nightmare season for both of Milan’s teams who were not only away from the championship battle but had to settle for the UEFA Cup qualifiers after finishing in 5-6 places respectively. And just then the game that went down in the history books was held, the highest victory in a derby ever. Inter did not qualify for the home stage of the Champions League when they were relegated by Swedish side Helsingborg, Marcello Lippi was sacked in October and Ronaldo was absent all season due to the tragic injury. At Milan Andrei Shevchenko did shell 24 league goals but the rest of his teammates were far from his level.

The striker Gianni Komandini, who joined that summer, scored his only two league goals that very evening. In the third minute he was left alone in front of Sebastian Fry and easily kicked into the net after a great cooking by Serginio, and in the 19th minute he completed a pair with a tremendous shot. In the second half Inter broke up. Fry absorbed a silly goal and then came the minutes of Andrei Shevchenko scoring two easy goals from Serginio’s cooks (again he) and Kaha Cladza from the left. On the final chord was the Brazilian in charge who completed a huge evening when he scored the sixth in a one-on-one. The Ukrainian, by the way, always made the death of the hated rival. He has scored eight league goals in 14 appearances against the Narazuri and another three in four Champions League games.

A makeover of a true champion

Milan beat Inter 2: 3 Season 2003/04 in Serie A | Cycle 22

The proud European champions were a much better team than their rivals and wanted to win their first Scudetto since 1999/00, but when Inter led 0-2 the black-and-blue fans felt that this was it – the frustrating streak in the derby was over for him. Jean Stankovic scored straight from the corner when no player touched the ball that misled Dida, and in the 40th minute the celebrations were doubled when Javier Zanti took control of a ball that was repelled from the defense, kicked, the ball hit one of the Rossoneri players and penetrated the net, 0: 2.

Ancelotti looked to the bench at half-time and put in Danish striker Ion del Thomasson and hit a ball. In the 56th minute he took advantage of a terrible omission by Francesco Toledo and shrank to 2: 1. A minute later Milan’s blitz continued, Kaka, in a wonderful debut season in Carlo Ancelotti’s team, dribbled unhindered and sent an accurate flat ball to the net, 2: 2. This gate was nothing more. Clarence Seedorf kicked a huge ball at half-height and set up a 2: 3 turnaround with five minutes left. A third straight win in the Rossoneri derby. Milan, who were one of the best teams in Europe that season, along with the ‘invincible’ Arsenal, were eliminated in the Champions League quarter-final after a hallucinatory 4-0 loss to Deportivo La Coruna, but consoled at the local championship at the expense of Roma. Inter secured their promotion to the Champions League only at the end of the season.

Adriano’s heart

Inter beat Milan 2: 3 2005/06 season in Serie A | Cycle 15

A game that opened the new editions. A black streak of ten black derbies (including two Champions League clashes, in the semi-finals in 2002/03 and 2004/05 in the quarter-finals with the famous picture of Marco Materazzi and Roy Costa) was interrupted. Hero? Adriano, who ended his career tragically but in those days was one of the best and most exciting players in Serie A. When Milan equalized to 2: 2 six minutes before the end, it seemed that Inter would kick the bucket again. Then in extra time (90 + 1) the Brazilian striker completed a double with an accurate shot after a corner kick.

Adriano, who excelled in the game, gave Inter a justified advantage after Nesta touched the ball with his hand in the box. Milan equalized with their own penalty (Shevchenko) and both teams created countless situations. Obfamy Martinez returned the lead to Inter in the 59th minute after Dida dropped a free-kick from Adriano. In the 84th minute, Yap Stam equalized with a shot, but the end was all blue-black. Milan, in case you were worried, took revenge when they won the second derby that season. It finished in second place after Juventus and was eliminated in the Champions League semi-final. Inter finished third and were eliminated in the quarter-finals of the Champions League by Villarreal.

Adriano, by the way, scored his last goal in the Inter uniform against the same Milan. “I feel like singing my actor’s song together with the audience that loved me so much,” he said in an interview. “Inter are a big part of me and the most beautiful episode of my life, I will not forget my goal at the last minute of the derby.”

changing shifts

Inter beat Milan 3: 4 2006/07 season, Serie A| Ninth cycle

Juventus were relegated to the second division and Roberto Mancini’s team was strengthened by Patrick Vieira and especially Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The Rossoneri will finish the same season as European champions, again, but have been out of the domestic league, and after Shevchenko’s departure in the summer, the future does not look rosy. In the ninth round the two met for the first derby that symbolized the passing of the baton

The Narazuri already led 0: 3 and 1: 4 but Marco Materazzi’s dismissal caused minutes of tension towards the end. Inter started great and took the lead in the 17th minute with a great shot by Hernan Crespo after a free kick. Five minutes later Jean Stankovic scored the beautiful goal of the game when he sent a kick to Dida’s connections and drove San Siro crazy. Zlatan, in his first derby, was also important to get on the board and in the 47th minute, at the end of an outburst, he defeated Alessandro Nesta and managed to subdue Dida.

Seedorf shrank (50) but Materazzi scored with a shot and made it 1: 4. But Materasi like Materasi, forgot he had yellow, took off his shirt and was sent off. Milan realized she had a chance. Alberto Gilliardino needed three minutes on the pitch to score a beautiful goal with a shot after Capo’s header. Julio Cesar worked hard but succumbed to an ingenious goal from Kaka that bounced over him after coming out for a high ball. At the end of minutes of the Nerazuri tension they celebrated a great 3: 4.

It was a big season for Inter who recorded a league record with 17 consecutive victories, finishing with 97 points and recording their first and only loss in the 32nd round against Roma.

Although Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored endlessly (he finished as the king of Serie A goals with 28 conquests), but that evening he met a good striker as well – Diego Milito.

The Argentine scored with a shot in the 14th minute and Aviati (replaced in the 35th minute) recorded two big saves that prevented a double advantage. Zlatan was stopped by Julio Cesar on the other side. Near the end of the half (44) the Swede equalized in a penalty after Kevin Prince Boateng failed on the field and the teams went down to the break at 1: 1. Zlatan completed a double with a huge goal when he penetrated the field and bounced over the goalkeeper but the game continued to be fickle: Inter also received a penalty, Diego Milito was caught in the box and completed a pair from the penalty spot. The striker completed a hat-trick and set up a makeover (79) and in the 87th minute from Icon scored an unforgettable goal with the False and ruined the chances of the Milan championship.
