Since March 2020, Milan had only lost one league match, the one who disputed before the Juventus last January 6. The Rossoneri, after that defeat, raised their heads beating the Torino twice (once, after penalties, in the Cup) and at Cagliari. They trusted an Atalanta that, instead, came from two draws in a row. La Dea, however, is an unpredictable team and at San Siro they once again showed their best face, that of the big events, which in Madrid should start to worry.
Gasperini’s men dominated the first half and the 0-1 with which they reached the break was too tight by what was seen. The milanisti, who started with the newly signed I got in instead of Brahim (experiment failed: Pioli put the Malaga player on 46 ‘), they barely managed to create dangers. The Nerazzurri, clinging to a very inspired Ilicic, went ahead with a header from Romero after a corner, and they continued to attack without pause.
The fruits of his great performance came in the second half, when the unstoppable Slovenian forced and took the 2-0 penalty. With an Ibra without aim, the only one to show signs of a Milanese life was Brahim, but it was not enough to stop that Atalanta, what with Shoe first hit the pole and then signed the sentence. He MilanHowever, he had good news also in an afternoon to forget since the Inter, which after 21 games in a row failed to score a goal, did not go from 0-0 on his visit to Udinese.
The Milanese hardly found any space and, when it happened, they ran into a great Musso. A great wasted opportunity that made him lose his papers Conte: the coach ended up arguing with the referee and was expelled, along with the manager Oriali. The setback of the Nerazzurri handed the title of winter champion to his ‘cousins’, whose lead is now two points. The second round of Calcio promises more and more.
