AC Milan are second in the league table with 48 points and a +22 goal difference. The Rossoneri have four wins and a draw in their last five games. They lost 1-2 to Spezia in their last league match.
Theo Hernandez missed a penalty in the 45th minute as his shots went off target to goal kick. Rafael Leao opened the scoring on the stroke of halftime with a chip over the goalkeeper after latching onto a through ball that had been sliced towards his own goal by Nikolaou. Kevin Agudelo levelled the scores in the 64th minute of the second half, assisted by Daniele Verde.
Verde finds Agudelo with a brilliant low cross, the substitute makes no mistake with his effort, sending it past Maignan into the back of the net. Emmanuel Quartsin Gyasi scored the winner in the added minutes, 90+6 minutes before full time, assisted by Viktor Kovalenko. A defensive mix-up allows Kovalenko to send a cross over to Gyasi, who slots it past Maignan to make it 2-1 and surely win the game.

Juan Cuadrado opened the scoring in the 25th minute from a set piece situation. He lines up a free-kick right on the edge of the area, strikes it low and hard on the keeper’s side, but it falls through his grasp and into the bottom right corner. Daniel Rugani doubled the lead in the 52nd minute of the second half, rising above everyone else to nod it into the far corner from close range.
It was a delightfully weighted cross by Arthur from the corner. Andrea Conti pulls one back in the 63rd minute with a strike past the keeper’s reach, in off the post into the far corner, assisted by Tommaso Augello with a cross. Paulo Dybala made it 3-1 in the 67th minute as he sweeps the loose ball into the far corner from the inside of the area, assisted by Manuel Locatelli.
