Milan made a quick start and immediately increased his chances. Zlatan Ibrahimovic had four super positions within ten minutes – but burned them all.
He stole the ball from goalkeeper Pau Lopez and went out and then got into a two-to-one position and rolled the ball. But the 39-year-old was a little too keen on the run and cornered for offside.
The misfortune continued For the Swede who was injured in the 56th minute. He had to see the rest of the match from the bench with an ice pack wrapped around his thigh.
Prior to this, the play director Hakan Çalhanoğlu had thrown him in the towel due to his injury.
Milan’s goal came after a penalty from Franck Kessié and a clinical left-hander from Ante Rebic. Shortly after the target, Rebic also had to leave the field with an emotion – and in overtime it was time for Samu Castillejo to call for treatment.
Despite the heavy breaks IMilanolaget managed to wait and win 2-1. Thus, they hold onto their rival Inter, who is the first in the ranking with 56 points. After 24 rounds, four points differ between teams.
