End of series for AC Milan, which remained on four consecutive successes before its setback on the lawn of Torino on Sunday, on behalf of the 12th day of Serie A (1-2). The case would have been quite different, of course, if Rafael Leao had not redacted, at the start of the meeting, his two very clear chances, especially the second (6th). But the AC Milan Portuguese striker missed everything until his replacement (by Ante Rebic) at halftime.
Opportunities that Torino did not miss, the former Nantes player Koffi Djidji opening the scoring with a header for the Turinese (35th). Before, in the process, Aleksey Miranchuk gives his team a little more air with a nice cross shot (37th). The annoyance of Stefano Pioli will not have changed anything, nor his choice to bring in Rebic, Charles De Ketelaere and Sergino Dest from half-time, Divock Origi being too short on a cross from Rebic (50th).
Giroud played a quarter of an hour
The Milanese, clueless, only found the fault on an error by goalkeeper Vanja Milinkovic-Savic, which Junior Messias (67th) took advantage of. The entry of Olivier Giroud (78th), preserved, was also without effect, the French international being little or badly served.
Milan lost for the second time this season after their defeat against Naples (1-2, September 18), which soared in the Serie A standings, five points ahead of Atalanta Bergamo, winner of Empoli (2-0), and six over the defending champion.
