AC Milan Women lost to a late comeback from Fiorentina at the Brianteo. Guagni and Bonetti scored in the second half to overcome Rinaldi's opening goal. The goal was huge for Rinaldi as she returned from injury after more than a month on the sidelines. Milan Women put in a good shift but fell victim to lapses in concentration that ended up being costly. The side play the return fixture on February 26th in Firenze.

Milan Women were missing new signing and in-form goalscorer Thorvaldsdottir due to a fever. Milan Women will travel to face Tavagnacco away in the league next week as they push for a Champions League spot.
