Milan lose 1-2 to Fiorentina

Regular service is resumed then

After leading for 80 minutes through a Mattia Destro goal, AC Milan absolutely collapsed in the last ten. Gonzalo Rodriguez and Joaquin were the culprits this time who scored two late goals to seal the game in dramatic fashion.

Only one picture can explain the current mood right now:

Both goals came from crosses. The first one from the right-hand side, the second from the left. All Pippo could do was stand there hapless as his men threw away what could have been a brilliant result and a chance to move up on the table. Instead, we're still at only three wins in the calendar year.

This adds to the disappointment that followed from the last match. Hellas Verona managed to equalize in the dying minutes, and now this. It's a continuation of the late game collapses and inept team chemistry. Competency for ten minutes was all that was needed.
