Milan sure know how to make your heart race. After falling behind 2-0 in the first half to Torino, the Rossoneri mounted a comeback of sorts, levelling the scores in the second half thanks to a goal from Andrea Bertolacci and a penalty goal to Carlos Bacca.

The first half was horrendous for Milan, who were caught out in defense almost immediately. Andrea Belotti opened the scoring for the home team in the 21st minute with a deflection.

Just 5 minutes later, Torino had scored their second with Marco Benassi flicking the ball into the net. Things were going from bad to worse for the Rossoneri.

Things took a darker turn 6 minutes later when Torino were awarded a penalty.

A penalty which Gigi Donnarumma saved! It was a terrible penalty attempt and an excellent save by Gigi to keep the away side in the match.

That was the first half, a terrible, no good half for Milan. Things needed to go our way in the second half, and they did!

Andrea Bertolacci somehow scored the first goal for Milan in the 55th minute. What a bizarre sequence of events!

With Milan back in it, they desperately needed a second goal. Enter, Bacca. Milan were awarded a penalty and the Colombian buried it to level the scores at 2-2.

The draw leaves Milan in 5th place on 38 points. Next up is Napoli on Saturday, of which they will be facing without Locatelli who is now suspended after a yellow card this match. They also lost Romagnoli due to a red card, so that’s two players out of the Napoli match. Yay.
