Milan got their third triumph in a row in the Italian Serie A. After the victories over Cagliari and Udinese, manager Stefano Pioli’s team defeated Brescia 1-0 this Friday, away from home, at the Mario Rigamonti stadium, in the opening of the 21st matchday.

The first half was very even. Milan brought danger with free kicks and missed an incredible chance with Ibrahimovic in the 40th minute. Theo Hernandez passed to Romagnoli on the left side, who crossed low for the Swede, unmarked, but his shot went wide.

Brescia had two good chances in a row just before the goal lost by Ibrahimovic. At the 33rd minute, after a corner kick, Torregrossa headed with danger. A minute later, Sabelli crossed from the right and Aye demanded a great save from goalkeeper Donnarumma from a header.

The home side came back better in the second half and was creating good opportunities with Torregrossa. The striker almost scored in a beautiful half-volley at the 50th and then stopped twice at Donnarumma, at both 59 and 60 minutes. Shortly before that, at 55th, he even surpassed the Milan goalkeeper, but the goal was ruled out for offside.

Brescia’s punishment for missing so many goals came in the 70th minute. Ibrahimovic received a long ball from Calhanoglu from the right side and crossed low. After a rebound, Croatian Rebic, who was introduced in Rafael Leao’s place, showed up unmarked inside of the box to break the deadlock.

After the goal, Milan still had a chance to double the scoring. Castillejo scored on the 82nd minute, but the move was overturned by Ibrahimovic’s offside. A minute later, Theo Hernandez advanced on the counterattack and struck a shot at the crossbar.

With the result, Milan reached 31 points, climbed two positions, placing themselves in sixth place, and now hope to continue in this position after the games on Saturday and Sunday. Brescia has 15 points and is in 19th place, in the relegation zone.
