Calcio returns to give away an uncertain match until extra time. Milan, like Fiore this afternoon and Inter in yesterday’s Super Cup, triumphed after 120 minutes, beating Genoa in the round of 16 who presented himself very well at the San Siro and started better than his rivals.
Shevchenko (who is still on the tightrope) gave the team of his loves a great scare with an intense start of his, which they deservedly took the lead with a nice header from Ostigard after 17 minutes. Then came another piece of bad news for the locals, who lost Tomori to injury due to knee discomfort.
The Milan game changed positively when Pioli brought Leao, Brahim and Bakayoko off the bench, who gave intensity and quality to the team. The 1-1, deserved, was materialized by a great header from Giroud, who made good use of a cross from Theo.
The Milanese had to reach extra time to complete the comeback, and they did it with some luck, thanks to a cross from Leao that turned into an unstoppable shot. Saelemaekers finished off the job in the 112th minute and sealed the pass for the Rossoneri, who await the winner of Lazio-Udinese in the quarterfinals.
