Derby Weekend in Europe

This weekend was derby weekend in Europe. Inter played AC Milan for supremacy in Milan, Fenerbahce played Besiktas in Istanbul and the “El Clasico” took place in Spain between Barca and Madrid.

Inter barely wins against Milan

The air burned in the fashion capital Milan and fans were hyped up for the big Milan derby. AC Milan and Inter Milan fought for the city dominance at the San Siro stadium. Inter won with a close 1-0 over AC and closes the gap to Juventus, Napoli and Lazio. Walter Samuel scored just 4 minutes in the game after a free kick from Esteban Cambiasso. Yuto Nagatomo saw a red card right at the beginning of the second half, but the “Rossoneri” couldn’t take advantage of that and lost the Milan derby at the end.

Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri complained after the game and claimed that the referee influenced the game. Allegri told the Italian television channel Sky Sports that “the referee should have given a penalty and Samuel should have been sent off.”

His counterpart at Inter, Andrea Stramaccioni, told Mediaset Premium: “In the second half, we had some difficulties. There still have some things to improve and we will work hard. “

Fenerbahce beats Besiktas 3-0 in own stadium

In Turkey, Fenerbahce played Besiktas in another hot derby this weekend. Moussa Sow opened for Fener in the 13th minute and scored a fantastic bicycle kick. Besiktas tried hard and pressured Fener without success. Gökhan Gönül scored the 2:0 and the 3:0 for Fener right after the break.

Besiktas manager Samet Aybaba, however, is confident: “Losing three weeks in a row and then face Besiktas is not good. I am not complaining about my squad. Our squad is sufficient and we will be better in the coming weeks.”

Two-goal hero Gökhan Gönül said on the club’s website.”With the win in Germany and today, I hope we can go on a winning strike. Besiktas fought well, but we played to win. I wish them good luck for the rest of the season, “

No winner in the “El Clasico”

Both teams were fresh and acted quickly straight from the beginning. Ronaldo, the Real superstar, scored the 1-0 lead in the 23th minute after a combination between Ozil and Benzema. Pepe lost the ball, on the other side, to Lionel Messi who couldn’t convert against Casillas. Messi, however, did it better after an hour, when he put a free kick past the weak Casillas. Real responded, Ozil passed into the middle and Ronaldo netted for the second time.

Jose Mourinho not only praised his star after the game. He said: “Messi and Ronaldo are from another planet. I want my players to win, but both are fantastic. “

Xavi wasn’t satisfied after his 35th El Clasico: “We have missed the opportunity to expand our lead to eleven points, but before the season we would have been happy.”
