They knew how to score goals back in the day.
Following up a 4-4 draw in February was always going to be tough, but the two Milan clubs went three goals better when they met again in November of 1949.
With the legendary Gre-No-Li triumvirate of Gunnar Gren, Gunnar Nordahl and Nils Liedholm in attack, Milan were a fearsome prospect.
The Rossoneri scored after just 36 seconds through Enrico Candiani, and then the winger put them two up in the seventh minute, grabbing an early brace.
Hungarian goal machine Istvan Nyers got Inter off the mark, but Milan pulled away again through Nordahl, and Liedholm made it 4-1 before the 20-minute mark.
Incredibly, the Nerrazurri would come back to take a 5-4 lead before Milan tied it up with 31 minutes left.
The players were presumably running out of steam by that point, and there was only one more goal in the match. It was netted by Amedeo Amadei, who completed his hat-trick and clinched a truly remarkable win for the Nerazzurri.
