AC Milan 1-1 Salernitana – Game Highlights

AC Milan’s rival Inter slipped up, Lazio could not win while AS Roma was defeated, things seemed to benefit Stefano Pioli’s side when they host near-bottom side Salernitana, but it was far from it.

Olivier Giroud scored with a header on the stroke of half-time, which was the French’s striker first one in a month, ended his goal-drought since February.

The host dominated possession from the start but were kept quiet until the half-hour mark, with Giroud attempted a overhead kick which narrowly missed.

Mike Maignan was at the bay to keep Milan’s post safe from constant threats. The Milan’s goalkeeper made a supreme last-dich challenge to prevent Dia.

Giroud then broke the deadlock before half-time with his header from Bennacar’s corner.

However, Salernitana hit back through Dia just after the hour mark as Bradaric led a Salernitana break down the left, with his driven cross turned beyond Maignan by a stretching Dia.

It was all but before a VAR review denied Milan a penalty when Ismael Bennacer went down easily under Domagoj Bradaric’s challenge.

The result means Milan remain fourth, but just a point clear of fifth-placed Roma. This make it a tense battle for Champions League qualification.

What’s next for Milan

Rossoneri looks to get back on their winning track in their visit to Udinese this weekend.
