Milan-Lecce 3-0

Fifth consecutive victory for AC Milan, which beat Lecce 3-0 in the Saturday afternoon advance of the 31st day of Serie A, confirming its second place in the standings behind Inter, launched towards the title that it could win right in the derby on April 22.

Pioli’s lineup pushed hard from the very first minutes, unlocking the match as early as 6' with a powerful and precise left-footed shot from the edge by Pulisic and signing the double on 20' with Giroud on the development of a corner. Lecceè s reaction went to print against the crossbar, hit by Gonzalez.

Before halftime Krstovic's expulsion effectively ended the score early. In the resumption, Leao dropped the tic-tac-toe at 57' before a resounding woodwork by Theo Hernandez. In the final the Rossoneri put on the brakes starting to think about the next challenge. Meanwhile, as far as the championship is concerned, second place appears secured.
