A.C. Milan in ten recovers Monza, then sinks in the recovery

Incredible match that of the twenty-fifth day of Serie A at the Brianteo Stadium: to win it è Monza, which beats Milan 4-2 after the Rossoneri had risen from 2-0 to 2-2 with a man down.

At 5’ the first chance è for the Rossoneri with a low cross from the right by Chukwueze on which Theo Hernandez deflects grazing the post. On 31’ the hosts answered: cross by Carboni and Djuric’s header that ended up on the outside post with Maignan overrun.

On 39’ fortuitous collision between Di Gregorio and Carrboni, who was bandaged for a cut to the head while the goalkeeper did not make it and was replaced by Sorrentino. At 44’ penalty for Monza for Thiaw’s foul on Mota Carvalho, after the VAR consultation with more time being lost turns Pessina.

There were eight minutes of stoppage time in the first half, during which first Pablo Marì backstopped a right-footed volley by Jovic and then Monza doubled the score with Mota Carvalho, who received from Colpani, outsmarted Florenzi with a feint and placed his right-footed shot into the corner.

Another turning point in the second half: at 50’ Jovic dà a hand to Izzo’s face and is cautioned, but Colombo is called to Var and changes the decision: Jovic sent off, Milan in ten. At 63’ Colpani misses the tic-tac-toe on Mota Carvalho’s cross.

Wrong goal, right goal: Giroud, who entered for Bennacer, at 64’ shortens the distance by left-footed volley on Pulisic’s header extension from a Florenzi cross from the right. At’88’ the resounding equalizer of the Rossoneri: a personal action by Pulisic who with his left hand slips in at the far post.

At 90’ Monza incredibly goes back in the lead: Bondo just entered receives from Maldini and right-footed pierces Maignan, there’è the suspicion of offside but, after the Var check, the goal is validated.

At 96’ the poker and to sign it è the former Colombo, who served by Pessina all alone in front of Maignan beats him and siglia a very important victory for Monza, the fourth consecutive useful result, while Milan falls after nine games without defeats and è to -2 from Juventus and -11 from’Inter.
