For the Rossoneri to score Rebic all’8′, Kessié at 44 ‘and Leao at 95 ‘; flag net for the ducals of Gagliolo at 66 ‘. The guests remain in ten from the 60 ‘for the expulsion of Ibrahimovic for protests. In the standings the Rossoneri rise to 63, to -8 from leaders Inter, while the Emilians remain penultimate with 20 points.
Thirteenth away win for AC Milan, which imposes itself and returns to success after the half misstep at home against Sampdoria and strengthens the second place in the standings behind Inter; all despite the expulsion of Ibra who leaves his teammates in ten with half an hour from the end and complicates a match dominated until then.
Pioli’s team starts strong and goes close to the advantage in the 5 ‘with Kessié: error of the former Conti on a lineout with his hands, the Ivorian midfielder recovers the ball, reaches 20 meters and unloads a strong but central right that Sepe raises above the crossbar. At 8 ‘Milan passes. Great play by Ibrahimovic who receives on 30 meters, jumps a man and serves Rebic to the limit: nice movement back to the Croatian goal to enter the area and then precise right under the crossbar.
At the quarter of an hour, a nice play by the guests. Horizontal ball from the left by Hernandez for Calhanoglu, who feinted leaving the ball to Ibra: the Swede swerved on the left-handed and shot from the edge deflected for a corner. Shortly after half an hour you can see the ducals, Pezzella’s cross from the left that finds Pellè in the center, a header that ends on the side. At 44 ‘Milan doubles. Exchange between Ibrahimovic and Hernandez on the edge of the area, touch of the French full-back for Kessié who can kick from a central position, precise low shot that overtakes Sepe.
At the start of the recovery Donnarumma, practically inactive in the first fraction, makes a prodigious double intervention, first with a great reflex on a header in the area of Conti, then is very fast out of the countered without fail by Pellè. At 15 ‘Rossoneri remain in ten for the expulsion of Ibrahimovic, expelled from the field for protests. The Swede had complained to Maresca about a foul suffered by Kucka. The expulsion changes the inertia of the match with the Crusaders who take courage and shorten the distance in the 21st minute: high ball for Pellè at the far post, bank in the middle and Gagliolo puts in the net.
On the occasion of the goal of Donnarumma hurts who takes a blow to the wrist in an attempt to anticipate Gagliolo. The goalkeeper manages to stay on the pitch with a bandage. At half an hour assist from Pellè for Cornelius in the area, the Dane ends on the side not by much. In the final, Parma presses but without creating great dangers for AC Milan who finds the trio on the counterattack in the 50th minute: Dalot sprints and serves a perfect assist to Leao, all alone against Sepe, does not make a mistake one on one and closes the games.
