Milan started flying and immediately stringed together opportunities. Zlatan Ibrahimović had four great positions in ten minutes – but he burned everything.
Goalkeeper Pau Lopez stole the ball and leaned outside, then came into a two-on-one position and wrapped the ball. But the 39-year-old was a little too impatient on the run and was mired in offside.
The accident continued for the Swede, who was replaced by an injury in the 56th minute. He had to see the rest of the match from the bench with an ice wrap around his thigh.
Earlier, game director Hakan Calhanoglu threw in a towel due to injury.
Milan’s goal came after a penalty by Franck Kessié and clinical left-hander Ante Rebič. Shortly after the goal, Rebic was also forced to leave the field with a feeling – and in overtime it was time to call Samu Castillejo for treatment.
Despite difficult breaks lMilanolaget managed to hold on and win 2: 1. This is how they stick to the city rival Inter, which is on the scale with 56 points. Four points differentiate between teams after 24 rounds.
