We had such high hopes for Milan in season 2020/2021. In as much as the season has gone well,the bad times are bound to happen. The bad times are here for sure for the Rossonerri. They suffered a 2-0 reverse on Saturday night to newly promoted SPEZIA. Zero shots on target at goal Milan mustered yesterday from 7 attempts. With an attack that has Zlatan and Leao that is a big let down. One should not take away the brilliant performance on the night by SPEZIA.
They really had a solid game plan of counter attacking with speed. Maggiore’s 56th minute goal emphasizes this. As good a left back as Theo Hernandez has been this season,losing the ball on the overlap the way he did in the build up to the goal did not cover him in much glory. Bastoni shot through a crowded Milan box in minute 67 to put Spezia 2-0 in front after a beautifully worked free kick routine. The introduction of Croatia veteran striker Mandzukic in the second half to add extra bite in attack could not help Milan avoid an embarrassing defeat. This was a chance to really stake a claim for the scudetto after Juve’s defeat earlier on the day to Napoli. Inter now have a chance to take top spot when they host Lazio at the Giuseppe Meazza.
