Inter completes sweep of AC Milan
Most years, the Inter Milan-AC Milan derby has Scudetto implications,
but Sunday's derby was for bragging rights only.
With its 2-1 victory, Inter opened up a 25-lad on AC Milan
heading into the holiday break.
Argentines Julio Ricardo Cruz
and Esteban Cambiasso scored
Inter, which rallied after going a goal down to a Andrea Pirlo free kick in the 18th
"Inter-Milan is an important game for what the two teams represent
beyond titles," Cambiasso said. "For us this was a chance to close out
a magical year -- the one with
the record-filled league title. We were able to beat Milan for the
third time in a row and that's important for the fans."
The win maintained Inter's nine-point lead over second place Roma, a
2-0 winner over Sampdoria, and clinched the first-half championship.
