At the end of Sunday’s Serie A match, there was a long-awaited strike. Milan faces Juventus. Before the start of the round, the Rossoneri was in first place in the table, and the Old Lady in third place.
In the 14th minute, Wojciech Szczesny made his first save. The dominant Milan created a goal-scoring opportunity, but Olivier Giroud did not defeat the Pole, who focused on the goal line. Until the end of the match, Szczesny was alert and did not allow himself to let the ball into the goal.
Aside from Wojciech Szczesny, Juventus’ starting lineup also includes Arkadiusz Milik. After the first part of the match, in which the hosts were more active in attack, the match was tied and the team was increasingly looking for the Polish representative with his passes.

An important point in the match was the red card received by Malik Thiaw in the 40th minute. From that moment, Milan had to play short and had to play with ten men for more than half of the match. The Rossoneri defender was sent off for a challenge on Moise Kean, which was clear. The home team’s coach responded before the end of the first half and brought on defender Pierre Kalolo instead of striker Christian Pulisic.
Juventus began to control the ball after the break, which was not surprising given that they had the advantage by one player on the field. However, it was not easy for the Old Lady to create goal scoring chances. Dusan Vlahovic took to the field in the 55th minute and joined Arkadiusz Milik in attack instead of Moise Kean.
Despite the problems, Juventus confirmed its numerical superiority with a goal. In the 63rd minute, Manuel Locatelli found a way to beat Antonio Mirante with a shot. This was helped by an incorrectly placed Rade Krunic rebound. In turn, the Italian gave himself and the team a gift for making the brave decision to shoot.
The Bianconeri were already one step away from completing the task and taking full points. All they had to do was monitor the progress and not allow their tired opponents to respond. Since the 79th minute, Arkadiusz Milik was absent from the field and was replaced by Federico Chiesa. The score remained 1-0 until Maurizio Mariani’s final whistle.
