AC Milan still worries as much before finding Tottenham
Another defeat for AC Milan, who lost on the field of Fiorentina.
AC Milan relapsed on the field of Fiorentina (2-1) on Saturday during the 25th day of Serie A, four days before a crucial trip to Tottenham in the knockout stages of the Champions League.
Mike Maignan, for his second match after five months without competition, delayed the deadline for a long time. But the doorman of the Blues gave in on a penalty obtained by his ex-Lille teammate Jonathan Ikoné, and transformed by the Argentinian Nicolas Gonzalez (49th), then on a late counter concluded by Luka Jovic (87th). Theo Hernandez could only save the honor of the Italian champions with a nice shot under the bar (90 + 5th).
Milan thought they had turned the page on their nightmarish start to the year with four straight wins without conceding a goal. But the Rossoneri, too passive, relapsed at the worst time, before going to try to validate their ticket for the quarter-finals of C1 on the Tottenham pitch, after their victory in the first leg (1-0).
They remain fourth (with 47 pts) and offer Inter Milan (3rd, also 47 pts) the opportunity to take second place alone on Sunday, currently occupied by Lazio (48 pts), in the event of victory at San Siro. against Lecce.
