There was a lot of tapping work for Milan at the duel with Atalanta, in the first 45 minutes there were only approaches on both sides. After all, Rafael Leao showed his technical skills, but keeper Musso was on the spot at Schlenzer (21st minute). In addition, the dribble -strong Portuguese set a promising conclusion (42nd). At least Muriel approached the guests from the Lombard neighborhood, Maignan (32nd) parried here. In addition, Zappacosta (42.).
However, the audience in the Giuseppe-Mazza Stadium has not yet been torn from the seats. That should only happen in the second section.
Theo lets the mood cook
Here San Siro literally cooked over. It started on the side of the hosts in the 56th minute, as a figurehead Rafael Leao after a considerable preparatory work by Tonali and Junior Messiah Frei in front of goalkeeper Musso Üchalt via tunnel (56.). The gate towards Scudetto was opened for the first time.
However, the delicacy of the evening under the eyes of Ibrahimovic sitting on the bench should come – and what a highlight that was: after an outstanding tackling of Krunic against the Boga Boga, which had just been replaced, the ball landed shortly before his own sixteen Theo. And the Milan leadership player no longer gave it, rather sprinted past all opponents like past over 80 meters – only to enforce half -left in the penalty area to 2: 0 (75.). Standing ovation from the ranks were the episode for the Frenchman, who came from Real to Milan in 2019.
The current table of the A series
While the bergamasks conceded a setback in the fight for international places with this defeat, the Milanisti celebrated the penultimate step towards the championship with the team. The scenario looks as follows: If a win in the midfield Sassuolo Calcio, the Rossonero of the 19th Scudetto is no longer to be taken away next Sunday. Should the reigning champion and AC-Erzrival Inter also win at Kellerkind Cagliari Calcio this Sunday evening (8:45 p.m.), the long-awaited triumph for “Ibra”, Rafael Leao, coach Stefano Pioli & Co.
