The Milan team obtained a great victory this Sunday on the ground of Atalanta Bergamo (2-3), which will have woken up too late.
AC Milan dominated Atalanta (2-3) after a high intensity duel from the first to the last second, Sunday at the end of the 7th day of Serie A, and retains its second place, at two lengths of Chef Naples. Far from being defeated after the cruel defeat of the week in the Champions League against Atlético Madrid (1-2), in added time, the Rossoneri started strong with a goal from Davide Calabria after just 30 seconds, perfectly launched by Theo Hernandez, in his great form before joining the Blues.
The Italian hope Sandro Tonali, who became a pillar of the Rossonero midfielder at the start of the season, doubled the bet after nabbing the ball in the feet of Remo Freuler (43rd). Then the Portuguese Rafael Leao scored his third but in Serie A after another tumble from Hernandez (78th). In the Milanese cage, Mike Maignan has long discouraged the attackers of the “Dea”, in particular with several high class saves at the start of the match.
But while we in the match folded to 3-0, the French goalkeeper had to bow in the last moments twice, on a penalty from Duvan Zapata (86th) then on a goal close to Mario Pasalic (90 + 4th). Too late despite everything for the “Dea”, who lost early in the match to injury Italian midfielder Matteo Pessina after having already had to do without the precious Robin Gosens, hit in a thigh this week in the Champions League. Despite his own heavy absences, those of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, on his 40th birthday, and Olivier Giroud, still injured, Milan does not weaken, second at two points from Naples, with two lengths ahead of Inter ( 3rd).
