Back in the Milan eleven, the French striker contributed to the stunning success won by AC Milan against Verona (3-2).
By hosting Verona this Saturday at San Siro, AC Milan thought they would have a quiet evening but in the end the Lombards had to draw on their reserves to secure the three points. Jostled, they even had to go back two goals before going for victory (3-2).
This success is their seventh in eight matches and it allows them to settle at the top of the championship, pending the exit of Naples on Sunday against Torino.
After a catastrophic first period, marked by goals conceded from Capri (7th) and Barak (24th on penalty), the Rossonerri therefore rolled up their sleeves. And it is Olivier Giroud who started their awakening.
Not to miss
Giroud showed the way forward
In what was his 4th appearance in Serie A, the French striker was able to put his people in the direction of the market by placing a beautiful header (59th), receiving a service from Rafael Leao. An achievement that saved his evening performance a little, quite dull until this goal.
At 1-2, Milan regained confidence and managed to pick up the score a quarter of an hour from time. Franck Kessie converted a penalty obtained after consulting the VAR. It was 2-2 and we did not swear by the skin of the visitors.
What was to happen next happened in the 78th minute. And it was a goal against his camp. Koray Gunter cheated on his own goalie by missing out on a clearance. The Lombards were happy to benefit from this stroke of fate, but this success they clearly caused it. And this stunning victory is the best preparation for the upcoming Champions League game against Porto.
