Former Milan coach felt the Rossoneri showed ‘European pace’ against Inter in the Derby della Madonnina on Sunday.

A frantic and fascinating match ended in a 1-1 draw at San Siro, when Hakan Calhanoglu scored against his former team.

Serie A Highlights: Milan 1-1 Inter

Ciprian Tatarusanu saved the second Inter penalty, while an own goal saved a point for the Diavolo, as Stefan de Vrij got the final touch on Sandro Tonali’s free kick.

Former Rossoneri coach Sacchi spoke about the big game in the fashion capital and felt the home side ‘pushed’ and ‘managed to press’ the Nerazzurri.

“The first half was fun,” Sacchi told La Gazzetta dello Sport. “Milan started strong and immediately pushed the accelerator.

“They kept a pace that I would define ‘European’, in the sense that in Italy, generally, you go slower. While in the cups, where the teams play in 11 and not six or seven, as ours do, you ride at a frenzied pace.

“Milan managed to press in the attacking zone and steal a lot of balls.”

Milan are still unbeaten in Serie A and have only dropped four points in 12 Serie A games, leading the pack ahead of the international break.

The Rossoneri are still tied with Napoli at the top of the table but had a chance to surpass the Partenopei on Sunday night.

The Azzurri were held to a 1-1 draw by Hellas Verona and the two sides are locked on 32 points ahead of November’s national games.
