Rome was able to cope with the positive dynamics of this new AC Milan. The hard blow, hours before the meeting, of the casualties of Donnarumma and Jens Petter Hauge by a coronavirus, could not with Ibrahimovic and company, but if the intensity of the Romans. Pioli’s team met a great she-wolf and signed the tables (3-3) at San Siro. The double of the Swedish giant, which places him as the top scorer of the Serie A, was not enough to achieve the victory. Despite this, Milan remains the leader.
Roma and Ibra lousy combination for the former: The striker had scored eight goals against La Loba during his career, and today was going to be no different. After only two minutes, Leao leaked a dream pass over the Roman defence and Zlatan did not forgive Mirante. 1-0 and Milan confirmed that they want the Scudetto. But if there is a homonym in Rome for the Swedish giant, it is Dzeko. After 14 minutes, after being very active in the beginning, he headed a corner and put the draw after a false start from Tatarusanu.
The match entered another dimension. If the Serie A characterized during the last years for being not very intense, this match denied the affirmation. The pace of the first half was impressive; both were looking for victory. Calhanoglu, Pedro, Theo, Kjaer, Dzeko and Ibrahimovic wanted to break the tie, but everything was left to decide for the second half.
It began precisely the same as the first. Leao is attending, and Milan is getting on top in the electronic. This time it wasn’t Ibra, but Saelemaekers are arriving from the second line. The Belgian does not spare, and Pioli’s team was once again in the lead.
From then on, Rome rushed and broke up. But despite their eagerness to score at all costs, they succeeded. In the 70th minute, Giacomelli gave Peter a dubious penalty. Veretout did not hesitate and cut from the right side of the Milanese goal. Neither did Zlatan ten minutes later when he converted another more than a questionable penalty.
Ibra’s joy was short-lived, as four minutes into the 84th minute, Kumbulla hit a corner at the far post and signed a draw that lasted until the end of the match. Despite this, Milan continues to lead the Calcio. But with the feeling of having missed a golden opportunity to take distance on Juventus.
