AC Milan 2-0 Lazio – Highlights

Stefano Pioli’s side remains hope to finish at top four with a dominant victory over direct competitors Lazio.

Marcos Antonio’s error benefited the home side as Bennacer bundled home the opener, before Hernandes with a coast-to-coast solo run to double the advantage before the break.

Rafael Leao had to be subbed off with a likely groin injury, which worried Rossoneri’s fans as the first leg of UEFA Champions League semifinal first leg is only few days ahead.

The Portuguese talisman limped off just 11 minutes in, but Milan did not let his absence slow them down.

Bennacer teamed up with Olivier Giroud to strike home by a volley over visitor’s Ivan Provedel.

While the capital side failed to register a shot on target during the first half, Milan doubled their lead only 12 minutes before the half-time break.

Hernandez received the ball from Mike Maignan deep in his own penalty area before pull a astonishing run from 20 years to score as the home fans went wild.

This is somehow almost identical to the French International’s solo goal against Atalanta in 2022.

Milan thought they had a third but Ante Rebic‘s goal was ruled out for offside, it was enough for the home side with three points and a perfect warm-up before the Champions League derby this mid-week.

Only two wins in the last five league games were of course far from acceptance for Rossoneri, but the elite European competition is a bigger focus for now.

The gap between Milan, Lazio and Inter are only three points, and anyone who slips up during this period may regret.
