Milan took on Hellas Verona away and were frustrating to watch. The home side were reduced to 10 men in the first half after a silly challenge by Stepinski got him sent off on his debut. However, Milan could not create anything for the majority of the game and luckily won a penalty.
Piatek opens his scoring account for the season with a sleek penalty but Milan look very fragile and in for a tough game against Inter this week. Piatek was denied a brace as his second finish was ruled to be a foul on Verona's goalkeeper. Milan now have 6 points in 3 games to kick off 2019/20.
