Whoever forgives ends up paying it, and at Milan The amnesty applied to the Sassuolo this Wednesday. In the match that opened the 32nd round of Serie A, the ‘rossonero’ team had the challenge of winning to pressure the Inter, that hours later I visited the Spezia, but far from it he was defeated (1-2) to stay 9 points behind his neighbor and staunch rival before the latter’s meeting. The team led by Pioli, through Çalhanoglu, but he did not know how to take advantage of Roberto De Zerbi were quite gray for much of the game, and in the final stretch ended up with a double of Scraper with which the ‘2’ was established in the pool.
Still absent Ibrahimovic due to muscular discomfort and being on the bench Mandzukic, the Milanese reference was Rafael Leao, and neither he nor Rebic, fallen on the left wing, they starred in performances for history. However, he did perform at a good level Çalhanoglu (still without renewal) again in the midfielder and again signing a goal from the edge of the area with a tight shot (30 ‘).
With that 1-0, the break was reached, and at the resumption the game seemed to go into an eternal “pause” on the way to the final whistle. The Sassuolo, always electric and entertaining for the neutral spectator, he could not find himself again, and the Milan, far from giving the tip, he limited himself (perhaps more because he could not than because he did not want to) to manage his advantage thanks to the occasional stop of Donnarumma.
But the good old ‘Gigi’ (also still not renewed, by the way) could not do anything before two sparks of Scraper, young forward to follow who gave the victory to Sassuolo. His two definitions were practically traced, in the heart of the area and receiving the ball from the right wing. In the first goal (76 ’) it was Toljan his assistant, and in the second (83 ‘), Berardi.
After this defeat, the Milan he no longer just begins to assume that hunting down the Inter it will not be possible, but would lose second place on this 32nd matchday if the Atalanta win in field of Rome.
