Goals from Ibrahimovic and Kessie brought the victory for Pioli’s team 2:1. Milan beat Roma in the away match and tied their race with Napoli for the scudetto.
In the first half, Zlatan Ibrahimovic took the Rossoneri forward. For the Swedish striker, this goal was 400th in the national championships and 150th in Serie A. In the 50th minute, Zlatan scored again, but this goal was cancelled after watching the VAR. The success of the Rossoneri was consolidated by Franck Kessie, who converted the penalty.
From the 66th minute Milan played in the minority – Theo Hernandez received the second yellow card and left the pitch. Stefan El-Shaaravi won back one goal, but the Wolves did not have time to equalize.
Stefano Pioli’s team still has equal points with Napoli, behind the Neapolitans in individual performance. Roma dropped to fifth place, leaving behind Atalanta.
The teams will play UEFA club matches next week against Porto in the Champions League (November 3) and Bude-Glimt in the Conference League (November 4). Want to know more about football and don’t miss the important news? Subscribe to footbal24.in and receive the latest updates to your email.
