10-man Inter claim 50th derby win in Serie A
MILAN (AFP) - Ten-man Inter Milan survived a second-half assault by city rivals AC Milan to win 1-0 at the San Siro Sunday and claim their 50th Milan derby win in Serie A.
Inter and Milan began the match, the 157th to be played between the sides in Serie A, with 49 wins apiece.
However it was Inter who emerged with the bragging rights after Argentinian Walter Samuel stunned a large majority of the 73,000 crowd with a fourth-minute opener.
Inter had boosted their title credentials last week and did them no harm by moving up one place up to third to sit four points off Juventus and second placed Napoli, who beat Udinese 2-1.
