AC Milan 3-2 Inter FC (FU DERBY MACTH)

Serie A leaders AC Milan fought back from two goals down to beat city rivals FC Internazionale 3-2 in a pulsating derby on Saturday, a stunning 85th-minute strike from Clarence Seedorf completing the comeback.

The result leaves Milan on 55 points, eight clear of second-placed AS Roma, who play AC Siena at home on Sunday. Third-placed Juventus FC, who have 46 points, are away to Bologna FC. Milan began impressively but it was Inter who struck the first blow with Dejan Stankovic scoring direct from a corner. Inter doubled their lead when another Stankovic corner was cleared only as far as Cristiano Zanetti, whose low drive from 25 metres deflected past Dida.

Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti, who had begun with Andriy Shevchenko on his own in attack, brought on Jon Dahl Tomasson for midfielder Rui Costa at the break in a bid to provide more firepower. The Dane pounced from close range in the 56th minute and within 60 seconds Milan were level when Kaka drilled in a pinpoint shot from the edge of the area. Milan lost Cafu and then Alessandro Nesta to injury but still had the final say as Seedorf produced a goal out of nothing to keep Milan's title bid on track.

MILAN: Dida; Cafu (Pancaro, 70'), Nesta (Laursen, 74'), Costacurta, Kaladze; Gattuso, Pirlo, Seedorf; Kakà, Rui Costa (Tomasson, 46'); Shevchenko

INTER:Toldo; Helveg, Adani, Cordoba; J. Zanetti, C. Zanetti, Farinos, Kily Gonzalez (Recoba, 88'); Stankovic (Karagounis, 70'); Vieri (Cruz, 75'), Adriano

GOALS: 0-1 Stankovic, 15'; 0-2 Zanetti, 40'; 1-2 Tomasson, 56'; 2-2 Kaká, 57'; 3-2 Seedorf, 85'
