It is increasingly looking like a straight shoot out between the two Milan sides for the Serie A title. Inter looks to have the upper hand over the Rossonerri because of that game in hand but you got to love the attacking exciting soccer exhibited by Stefano Pioli’s side. Ok, Milan has always been a DEFENSE first type of team but you can’t help but love the striking options at their disposal. They ended this match with Zlatan, Rebic and Krunic in place of Leao and Giroud who scored another good poacher’s goal here. Ciro Immobile iS A STRIKER that is capable of scoring 40 goals a season. With world class players such as Milinkovic-Savic is not hard to see why. He will be hard to keep over the summer for Lazio. Speaking of attacking intent, Milan had 25 shots at goal for this match. Not only did Lazio try to sit on that solitary goal, they did it playing too deep inside their box to have a chance of making it.
How avoidable was that goal from Tonali? Very avoidable. I mean the initial clearance header was poor right? But it was still manageable. It was the second phase of the defensive play that will definitely irk Sarri the Lazio coach. Not only number 23 Hysaj’s ball watching but also Zlatan’s header to Tonali should not have happened at all. First on the ball should always be you the defender, rather give the ref a decision to make committing the foul than allow a free header into the box. The English Premier league is superior to the Italian league but Serie A is giving it a run for its money with this, what looks like a legendary photo finish.
