AC Milan No2 Mauro Tassotti felt Mario Balotelli handled yesterday's derby in good fashion.

The 1-1 draw was the first time Balotelli had faced former club Inter Milan.

Tassotti said: "Balotelli had three chances to score, he's a class player, sublime. It was a special game for him, it is clear that he experienced emotions.

"I did not mind the chances he missed. In other matches, with those opportunities, he would have at least one goal."
