Watch Olivier Giroud score twice in three minutes including stunning Cruyff-turn finish as AC Milan beat Inter 2-1
OLIVIER GIROUD scored twice in three minutes to hand AC Milan victory over rivals Inter Milan on Saturday.
Ivan Perisic had given the reigning Serie A champions the lead at half-time, expertly volleying home from a corner.
And Inter held onto their slim advantage until 15 minutes from time as they looked set to move six points clear at the top of the table.
But then up stepped former Arsenal and Chelsea man Giroud – who was starting instead of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
The 35-year-old Frenchman equalised in the 75th minute, turning in Brahim Diaz's low cross-shot.
And the striker was not done yet as three minutes later he would go on to produce the moment of the match.
Giroud was played in by Davide Calabria inside the box and immediately performed a remarkably skilful Cruyff-turn before curling a shot through the fingertips of Inter keeper Samir Handanovic.
The brace proved enough to seal victory for AC Milan, despite them ending the game with 10 men after Theo Hernandez was dismissed in stoppage time.
