AC Milan tear Juventus apart in San Siro as leaders fail to extend lead

Juventus have failed to extend their lead in the Serie A after title rivals Lazio lost to Lecce earlier on the day. The Bianconeri looked to be on their way to an easy victory over AC Milan after they took a 2-0 lead just after half-time. A crazy final thirty minutes turned the game around, gifting Milan the full three points at the San Siro (4-2).

A drab first half was followed by six goals in one half. Juventus hit Milan with two goals in quick succession. First it was Adrien Rabiot who opened the score and just before the hour mark Cristiano Ronaldo doubled Juventus’ lead. It looked to be an easy night for the Serie A leaders at the San Siro.

The lead was then cut in half after a converted spot-kick from Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Despite the odds, Milan then outclassed Juventus in the remaining half hour of the game. First it was Franck Kessi who equalised for Milan, before Rafael Leao netted the third with a deflected finish on 67 minutes.

Juventus woke up after the 3-2 and started to attack. It left them open at the back and Milan made the most of that space with ten minutes on the clock as Ante Rebić was left all alone in the box to fire past Wojciech Szczesny. Despite the loss, Juventus remain on top in the Serie A as they hold their seven point lead over Lazio.
