Serie A Match Day 32 Round Up: AC Milan Rises To The Top

Posted by Kevin Walker Monday, April 20, 2021

Super Pippo does it again, netting 3 goals for AC Milan as they trounce San Siro visitors Torino, by a score of 5-1, claiming sole possession of 2nd place. The Rossoneri finally rise above Torino's cross-town rivals Juventus, and partly due to the poor outting of the Bianconeri on their home turf Saturday against Inter Milan.

Going down to 10 men in the 74th minute, with a straight red to Tiago Mende , things definitely looked dire for JUVE as the squad had already given up the opening goal, 10 minutes prior.

Inter attackers Sulley Muntari and Mario Balotelli combined with pace and positioning to score on the counter-attack in the 64th minute, catching the Juventus defense out of position. (see goal highlight video below)

Inter regained possession just outside their own box with Muntari receiving the ball from Ibrahimovic at midfield. The lanky Ghanaian continued play with a dash down the left flank, getting behind his defender, and crossed the ball to Balotelli who one-timed the shot beyond Gigi Buffon's reach.

Some wonderful goalkeeping by Gigi Buffon (and Julio Cesar) as Inter should have finished off their hosts by least 2 or 3 more goals but instead allowed Juventus to pull back the equalizer in extra time with a Grygera header past the disorganized Inter defence.

Additional News

To top it off, not only do Juventus lose a Champions League pole position, but also are hit with a "fan ban" after racism jeers were levelled against Inter forward Mario Balotelli. Balotelli, an Italy U21 international, born in Palermo to Ghanaian immigrants, has reported racist abuse from several sets of fans this season but the clubs in question have only received fines.
