AC Milan Beaten 1-0 By Juventus At Home After First Half Red Card

Milan dominated the first half but all their hard work went to waste as Thiaw saw red and the side lost control.


AC Milan were beaten 1-0 by Juventus at the San Siro in front of a sold out crowd. The Rossoneri were dominating the game until a first half red card to Malick Thiaw sent the side off the rails. The move from Stefano Pioli was to take off Christian Pulisic for Pierre Kalulu which worked well to close off the half and maintain the tempo.

Pioli fumbled his second half substitutions replacing Adli and Giroud with Krunic and Jovic. The game got blown open as the Rossoneri lost their passing lanes and their hold up play. The addition of Kjaer and Romero pretty much sealed our fate as we drop crucial points.

Manuel Locatelli scored the winner thanks to a wicked deflection from Rade Krunic which sent Antonio Mirante the wrong way. Locatelli celebrated right in the faces of the Rossoneri faithful. The former Milan player showed quite a bit of disrespect to the fans who once supported him but regardles dealt us a fatal blow.

Milan lose their top spot and are now sit in second place, one point off Inter Milan and one above Juventus.
