AC Milan took on Juventus at the San Siro and put up a valiant effort in the 3-1 loss. The lack of depth in the squad really hurt Milan as Stefano Pioli started right back Calabria as a central midfielder and struggled with options off the bench. Milan went down early to a Chiesa and Dybala link up but fought back and got back on level terms when Leao made a great run and played in Calabria for a golazo. Milan looked out of ideas in the second half thus Juventus took the lead again through Chiesa. Milan struggled to create in front of goal and none of the substitutions available helped. Juve on the other hand brought on Kulusevski and McKennie who combined for the third goal ending Milan's unbeaten run in the league that has lasted since June. It was a tough one for the Rossoneri but the players did well given the circumstances and I can't wait for the reverse fixture when we have the full squad available.
