Lecce-Milan 2-2

Milan brakes again. The Rossoneri, in the first Saturday advance of the 12th day did not go beyond 2-2 on the field of Lecce. Goals by Giroud and Reijnders in the first half were answered by Sansone and Banda in the second half. In addition, in the dying minutes the Salentini went one step away from the feat, with Piccoli who è saw his winning goal annulled by the Var.

The first twist of the match came on 10' when Milan lost Rafael Leao to a muscle problem. Okafor takes his place. On 28' the Rossoneri manage to find the lead with Giroud, who pushes a cross from Theo Hernandez into the goal. Seven minutes later, Stefano Pioli’s boys found the double with Reijnders, who beat Falcone with a precise right-footed shot. Three minutes later, then the Dutchman saw the chance of a personal double slip away, hitting a post. On 39' Lecce also managed to make itself dangerous with Banda who managed to shoot from a good position, finding a super response from Maignan.

In the resumption, the Lecce entries of Sansone, Piccoli and Blin are determined, as their entry makes the game's inertia change. At 66', in fact, the hosts manage to shorten the distance precisely with Sansone, who inserts from two steps the bank made by Blin. Four minutes later, D'Aversa&#39s men managed to find the equalizer with Banda, who beat Maignan with a perfect left-footed volley. On 84', in addition, Lecce missed an opportunity to take the lead with Sansone, who hit the post with a header. In full recovery, Milan, after being left in ten for Giroud's expulsion for protests, is saved by Var, which cancels the goal scored by Piccoli, for an earlier foul on Thiaw.

On the next day, the Rossoneri will face Fiorentina at the San Siro, while the Salentini will take on Hellas Verona.
