Milan win the ‘Berlusconi derby’

Milan is overcoming its crisis with blows from 1-0. After the victories with Torino and Tottenham, the Rossoneri also won by a minimum what can be defined as the ‘Berlusconi and Galliani derby’ against Monza, the current team of the Cavaliere, who had stated that they hoped in a draw “that it would not make them hurt no one.” Palladino’s team, which officially welcomed the Milanisti in Serie A for the first time, thus broke a losing streak that began on November 10but he did it with a great performance and making merits to take at least one point.

Pioli started with three novelties regarding Tottenham: Tomori, already recovered in defence, Messias on the right wing and Origi instead of Giroud up front. The milanisti were better at the beginning of the clash, close to 0-1 with a shot at the post by Leao and a couple of initiatives from a team that is regaining strength and confidence. The well-deserved goal came on minute 31 thanks to Messias, who took advantage of a clearance from Pessina after a Kalulu cross and beat Di Gregorio with a powerful shot from the edge.

The goal did not dampen Monza, who took control of the clash in the second half and left the Italian champion only a few counterattacks that could have done much more damage. In one of them, Theo was close to 0-2 with a Vaseline that ended up out, but then the Milanisti had to suffer. After a shot from Petagna was neutralized by Tatarusanu, Ciurria hit the post with a low shot from the edge of the area. Milan were able to decide on 85′, after a beautiful move with a cross from Theo, a heel shot from Giroud and a shot from Tonali that was saved by Di Gregorio.

The arreón of the Monza continued, then, throughout the discount, but Milan has learned to endure and took a fundamental victory, thanks to which they are third, with three points and one more game over Atalanta and Roma. Switching to a three-centre defense for Pioli has worked wonders after a month of January to forget: in the last four games, his team only conceded one goal. The worst is behind us.
