With Inter not playing this weekend due to the Covid-19 outbreak that has affected Antonio Conte’s squad, Milan, 2nd in Serie A, did not miss the opportunity to get 6 points behind the leader thanks to the victory in Fiorentina’s house (2-3). It was a meeting with many incentives, in which Zlatan Ibrahimovic opened the scoring (for the first time as a starter after his injury), Erick Pulgar drew, Franck Ribéry put the viola ahead and the Malaga-born Brahim Díaz was sentenced for Milan, on loan from the Real Madrid, and Hakan Çalhanoglu.
Losing was a harsh punishment for a Fiore who played good football. In the 9th minute Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who also smashed two balls off the crossbar, put Milan ahead after receiving a ball from Simon Kjaer and shooting to the left of the goal. The Swedish star began his action on the edge of the offside, but the VAR ruled that it did not exist.
Fiorentina leveled at 17 ‘through Pulgar, a great goal from offside. And the exbetic Germán Pezzella spurred a ball into the crossbar in a stellar play. Already in the second half, in the 51st minute, another illustrious veteran, Ribéry, scored after taking advantage of a pass from his teammate Dusan Vlahovic.
However, Milan starred in a great reaction. First it was Brahim Díaz, very quick to take advantage of a pass with the head of Kjaer and overcome the goalkeeper Terracciano, who entered after Dragowski’s injury. It was 57 ‘. And in the 73rd minute, Kessie sent the ball to Çalhanoglu, who scored the winning goal for Stefano Pioli’s team on a perfect diagonal.
Nothing was lacking at Artemio Franchi, where Milan achieved a fundamental triumph to settle even more in their second position, even more so because Juventus had lost at Benevento (0-1). The rojinegros score 5 points from ‘vecchia signora’ and Atalanta.
