There were a lot of goals in 1998 with some big names getting on the scoresheet in a 4-1 win: Cauet, Zamorano, Roberto Baggio and Javier Zanetti. It was Zanetti again who made his mark in February 2008. During a clash in the Scudetto race, he scored the goal to make it 1-1 with time running down, leaving Doni with no chance with a powerful shot from outside the box. That stunning strike helped launch Inter towards the title. The following year, he scored the winning penalty to claim the Supercoppa Italiana for the Nerazzurri. There have still been a number of glorious goals since 2000. There was that from Chino Recoba who was used to shining brightly against the Giallorossi. The 3-3 comeback with Balotelli and Crespo goals. In 2005, it was a Mihajlovic brace that secured the three points. In February 2011, there were eight goals scored at the Meazza.
