MILAN (AP):

Cristian Zapata's stoppage-time equaliser prevented the new era at AC Milan from getting off to a losing start yesterday as the Rossoneri fought back from two goals down to draw 2-2 at city rivals Inter Milan.

Antonio Candreva and Mauro Icardi scored in the first half, but Alessio Romagnoli reduced the deficit in the 83rd minute before Zapata's leveller in the seventh minute of stoppage time.

Milan remained sixth in Serie A, two points above Inter in the race for the final qualifying position for the Europa League.

 

$800M TAKEOVER

 

This was the first match since the $800 million takeover of Milan was completed on Thursday by Chinese-led Rossoneri Sport Luxembourg, ending Silvio Berlusconi's 31-year reign.

Inter, who are also owned by a Chinese group, was taken over last year by Suning.
