Heavy 3-1 defeat for Pioli’s Milan against the Bianconeri

Heavy defeat for AC Milan in Saturday’s third advance of the 27th Serie A matchday: Udinese beat Pioli’s team 3-1 at the Dacia Arena, inflicting defeat number seven in the league on the Rossoneri.

Milan in trouble for large parts of the match, in the 10th minute Udinese went ahead thanks to Pereyra, after a mistake in the setting by Tomori. The Diavolo struggled to react but in the final half equalized after a controversial episode: Doveri awards a penalty for a hand foul by Bijol, from the penalty spot Ibrahimovic misses but the referee makes the referee repeat due to the entry of a Bianconeri player in the area, amid protests from the Friulani (Sottil sent off).

Ibrahimovic thus scored and became the oldest player to score a goal in Serie A, at 41 years and 166 days, thus surpassing Costarcurta.

But there was not even time to rejoice for the meneghini, who before halftime in the sixth minute of added time found themselves under again due to Beto’s goal on an assist from Success.

In the second half, Milan continued to struggle, and Udinese made it three: Success munched Thiaw, and Ehizibue deflected Udogie’s conclusion into the net. The Rossoneri lacked the strength to react, and Udinese hit three golden points that lifted them to 38 points, close to the Europa zone. Milan on their third game without a win, stuck in fourth place at 48.
