After the championship restart, Milan has 9 games without knowing defeat, something that has not happened for a long time and with the trashing of 5 goals for 1 in the last game against Bologna, it already rises to positions in the Europe League, being one of the teams in the best shape currently in Serie A.
Neither the Juventus leader nor Inter, who is still alive in the fight for the Scudetto, had this luck after the pandemic. In fact, those of Sarri fell to AC Milan after 4 years, the last time the Rossoneros had beaten Juventus was in October 2016.
Stefano Pioli’s team added 20 of the 24 points available after the health break and placed sixth solitary in the table, waiting for what Napoli do, seventh, with eight points ahead of Sassuolo, eighth.
In San Siro the party started early with the goal of Alexis Saelemaekers at minute 10 and then at minute 24 Milan was winning 2 to 0 thanks to the goal of the Turkish Hakan Çalhanoğlu. Milan dominated and did what they wanted in the first half and in the second too. Only a great goal from the Japanese Takehiro Tomiyasu on the brink of rest disturbed the rossonera aura.
In the second half, three more goals came, Bennacer’s at minute 49 for 3-1, Rebic’s goal that could not be missed at minute 57 and Calabria’s goal in aggregate time to sign the hand.
Milan is hungry for success and the annoyance shown by the Swedish Zlatan Ibrahimovic when he was replaced at the time of play proved it. With four days to go, the Swedish team is one step away from shielding his ticket for the next Europe League. For its part, Bologna no longer has objectives for what remains of the campaign saved from the decline and without possibilities for Europe.
