Milan Derby History
The Milan Cricket and Football Club was founded in 1899, but issues over the signing of foreign players led to Inter being born in 1908.
The two clubs met sporadically over the next few years before the inaugural season of the Divisione Nazionale in 1926/27 brought them together more regularly.
The 1960s are widely viewed as the heyday for the rivalry, with each club being crowned champions of Europe on two occasions.
Hostilities between the two sides spilt over into the Italian national team, with some players refusing to play alongside each other.
Milan gained the upper hand between 1989 and 1996, winning four Serie A titles and three European Cups to leave Inter trailing in their wake.
The decision to award Inter the 2005/06 title after a match-fixing scandal angered Milan and their mood was not helped when their rivals claimed top spot for the following four years.
Milan finally ended their streak in 2010/11, before both clubs spent the next nine seasons living in Juventus’ shadow.
Inter eventually snapped the streak in 2020/21, while Milan ended their wait to win Serie A the following season.
AC Milan vs Inter Milan Controversies
Much like other football rivalries worldwide, the Milan derby has its roots in social and political differences between the two sides.
Milan are a working-class club, while Inter represents wealth. The differences manifest themselves in how the clubs are run and the make-up of the respective fanbases.
One of the most controversial Milan derbies was played in January, with the second half descending into chaos after Milan took a two-goal lead.
Inter’s Spanish international Luis Suarez was sent off for smashing into defender Mario Trebbi and the tackles continued to fly in after that.
Their meeting in the quarter-finals of the 2004/05 Champions was undoubtedly one of the darkest moments in the history of the Milan derby.
Leading 2-0 from the first leg, Milan increased their advantage in the return fixture thanks to Andriy Shevchenko’s first-half goal.
Inter subsequently had a goal disallowed, sparking a barrage of missiles to be thrown by their fans into the Milan penalty box.
Milan’s goalkeeper Dida was struck by a firework, and the referee stopped the game before taking the players back to the safety of the dressing room.
They returned after a ten-minute stoppage, but Inter fans continued to throw missiles onto the pitch and the game was eventually abandoned.
Milan were awarded a 3-0 win and went on to reach the final, which they subsequently lost following Liverpool’s unlikely comeback.
Inter fans disgraced themselves again a few years later, subjecting Mario Balotelli to racial abuse during his first Milan derby for his new club.
Balotelli had previously played for Inter before signing for Manchester City and was understandably distraught at the treatment he received from their fans.
