Fiorentina’s meeting with Milan was full of emotions and goals from both sides. Ultimately, the hosts from Florence won 4: 3.
Alfred Duncan opened the result of the meeting. The Ghana representative took advantage of the fatal mistakes of Milan’s defense.
A few minutes later Fiorentina was able to raise the lead. Jose Callejon tossed the ball to Dusan Vlahovic, but Viola’s top player missed the target with a header shot.
Finally the “Rossoneri” came out. Rafael Leao wasted two good chances soon after.
However, the hosts delivered the second blow. Just before the break, Riccardo Sapponara fired an extremely precise shot from outside the penalty area.
In the 60th minute, Ciprian Tatarusanu capitulated for the third time. Vlahović entered the list of shooters.
Several dozen seconds later, Milan replied. Zlatan Ibrahimović found himself in the penalty area and crashed, giving Pietro Terracciano no chance to intervene, replacing the injured Bartłomiej Drągowski.
In the 67th minute, “Ibra” completed the double. The Swedish striker took advantage of a pass from Theo Hernandez who carried out a great move on the left flank.
Hernandez helped in Milan’s second goal but later made a fatal mistake that resulted in Fiorentina’s fourth goal. The left-back lost the ball close to the penalty area, which hit Vlahovic’s feet, who scored the second goal of the match.
In extra time “Rossoneri” hit 4: 3. Lorenzo Venuti sent the ball into his own goal. Stefan Pioli’s players did not manage to lead to a draw.
Milan have suffered their first defeat this league season but are still in second place in the league. Tomorrow, Napoli could make the “Rossonerim” jump by three points if they beat Inter.
4 – 3
