Whatever happens next, a Milanese team will definitely play in the Champions League final in Istanbul but, before we get to that occasion, there are two highly emotional matches to be played where the teams will battle it out to fight for the cup.
May 10th is the date set for the Milan - Inter match, May 16th for Inter - Milan: two recurring challenges that have been battled out many times in the past.
12th April 2005 is a date that’s inscribed on the memory of both the winners and the losers, the Milan and the Inter fans. This was the last time that the historic Derby della Madonnina upped the ante and stepped onto the pitch to the tune of the UEFA Champions League anthem.
However, due to flares thrown onto the pitch, one of which struck the Milan goalkeeper Dida on the shoulder, the Rossoneri won the game on aggregate. The moment is captured in the iconic photo of rivals Materazzi and Rui Costa standing together at the end of the match-clash.
18 years later history is destined to repeat itself, with Stefano Pioli and Simone Inzaghi’s teams ready to give it their all.
Don't miss the opportunity to attend two magical evenings of great football.
