Serie A's biggest derby, Milan vs. Inter, delivers a classic. PLUS: Messi's latest magic trick for Barcelona

The Milan derby and Lionel Messi's performance at Betis raised overall what was a relatively humdrum weekend. It may be just an impression, but derbies tend to either be defined by fear and tension, or they break out into end-to-end brawls.

The 223rd Derby Della Madonnina was the latter, and if you missed it, you missed a classic.

Ahead of the game, it looked as if Sunday's meeting would mark the start of Inter's implosion: from the Mauro Icardi affair -- he was watching at home, a five minute...

Inter in derby heaven as Milan fail to deal with threat of Vecino and Martinez

As kick-off approached in the Derby della Madonnina, Milan's Ultras unfurled a tifo depicting Hell Boy bringing his fist down on a pile of skulls through which an Inter scarf was laced. "Send them to hell," was the request made by the Curva Sud to Milan's players. Looking at the banner, Inter probably thought it can't get worse that this.

It's been a tumultuous month for them in which the flames ignited by dressing room strife, the stand-off provoked by the decision to strip Mauro Icardi of the...

Icardi drama drags Inter down while Milan, Piatek are on fire: what you need to know about the Milan derby

So much has changed since the last Derby della Madonnina. Back in October ahead of their first meeting of the Serie A season, Inter were deserving victors, with Mauro Icardi the hero and his team improbably top of their Champions League group. Milan on the other hand witnessed Gonzalo Higuain descend into a funk and were mired in a crippling injury crisis.

The roles are now reversed. Milan are on the march and have overtaken an Inter side that's on the slide. There has been a remarkable nine-point...

Arrivals of Piatek, Paqueta have Gattuso, Milan in position to return to the Champions League

Last Friday afternoon, Gennaro Gattuso walked into his pre-match news conference and did what he always does. He walked down the aisle to his desk, exchanging a few words and shaking some hands only to notice that a couple of the reporters were not in their usual places. To great curiosity and no little amusement, Gattuso politely asked if they would move. Sitting to his left wouldn't do. Not when the recent uptick in Milan's results has coincided with this particular pair of journalists questioning...
