Leonardo: 'It's not a surrender'

Leonardo insists the 3-0 defeat is not a Scudetto surrender, “but admittedly five points are a lot. I respect the Milan fans.”

The Nerazzurri had the opportunity to go top of the table tonight, but were beaten 3-0 by rivals and Serie A leaders Milan.

“Is this a surrender for the Scudetto? No, certainly not that, but admittedly five points are a lot with only seven games to go,” said the Coach.

Inter captain Javier Zanetti concedes “we could've done without that defeat,” and accused Antonio Cassano of “diving.”

Milan emerged with a 3-0 victory in tonight's derby thanks to an Alexandre Pato brace and late Cassano penalty.

“I don't know what the others may think, but I know what the team thinks: it's true, we could've done without this defeat, but now we have to look ahead,” Zanetti told Inter Channel.

The two teams meet on Saturday night in the knowledge that a Nerazzurri victory would see them go top of the table.

"I think Eto'o could decide the game in favour of Inter," said the German great. "He's their extra man, a great champion at the service of his team. He's a delight for any Coach.

Eto'o: Derby won't decide title

Inter striker Samuel Eto'o insists that the Milan derby will not decide the outcome of the Scudetto race.

First plays second tomorrow night as the Rossoneri go into the tie two points clear of their city rivals.

Mazzola sees Inter victory

Sandro Mazzola feels the momentum is with Inter ahead of Saturday's potentially title-deciding Derby della Madonnina.

Inter are just two points behind League leaders Milan and can overtake their rivals with a victory at San Siro.

Speaking to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Mazzola said: "Inter are favourites after the comeback and this is what worries me because of the old rule that the favourite doesn't win.

"It's a decisive game only if Inter don't win."

The Leo factor

Scott Fleming ponders how significant Leonardo's presence in the black and blue camp is for both clubs ahead of this Saturday's Derby della Madonnina

There will be 22 players on the field, around 80,000 fans in the stands and millions of viewers around the world. Yet it's hard to shake the feeling that this Saturday's Derby della Madonnina is all about one man – Leonardo.

Seven years since they last lifted the League trophy, Milan are finally in a position to break Inter's Scudetto stranglehold. How ironic it would be if they were thwarted by a man who was their employee as recently as last summer, who lived and breathed Milan for 13 years and scored a double for them in the derby in 1999.

Boateng: Inter are scared

Milan midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng thinks that although Inter appear confident ahead of the Derby della Madonnina, they are probably scared.

The momentum is clearly with the Nerazzurri who can overtake their rivals at the top of Serie A with a win on Saturday evening.

"From the outside, it can seem that Inter have more enthusiasm, but maybe closed in the dressing room they're scared.

"Milan are in front and they will have to make more of an effort than us.
