AC Milan made a miraculous comeback against Juventus and won today’s clash against the big rival with 4-2.
Rossoneri would make a comeback in five minutes, erasing a 0-2 deficit and even taking the lead. It was arguably the best performance of the team from San Siro seen in the last few years.
We saw two completely different halftimes. The first 45 minutes were extremely boring, without too many chances, and excitement. However, the second one brought six goals, and a fantastic scenario.
Juve reached the lead first, in the 47th minute, after Adrien Rabiot’s beautiful effort, which finished with a hit behind Donnarruma’s back. The French player took the ball on his own half, reached Milan’s box before sending a screamer.
We didn’t have to wait for too long for the second goal. Kjaer and Romagnoli made a horrible mistake, and Cristiano Ronaldo used this gift to double the lead and continue with his excellent streak of five games in a row in which he netted. By the way, Rabiot goal was in two minutes after the halftime kick-off and Ronaldo’s five minutes later.
Nobody could predict what would happen pretty soon following these hits. Bonucci handballed in the box, and the referee awarded a penalty for the hosts after reviewing the entire situation.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored, to create a swing and positive momentum. He would then assist to Frank Kessie who leveled the score.
It was the 67th minute, once the game turned upside down. Ronaldo lost the ball, and Milan’s Leao executed a nice counter-attack for 3-2. With 10 minutes before the final whistle, Ante Rebic put an end on Juve’s collapse, adding his name to the scoresheet and setting the final result of this very attractive match.
This loss didn’t hurt the champions who are battling with Lazio for this year’s title. What is the reason for that is that the Eagles lost in Lecce against the hosts 2-1, even though they had a lead early one. The difference between the Old Lady and the team from Rome is still 7 points, which puts Juve in an excellent position with seven rounds to go.
