AC Milan defeats Wolfsberger 5-0; Adli shines as the No. 10

Last Updated on 29/07/2022 by

Rafael Leao’s beautiful lob and Yacine Adli’s goal and an assist helped Milan defeat Wolfsberger 5-0 in a friendly.

The absence of Divock Origi, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and Tommaso Pobega, as well as Daniel Maldini’s loan move to Spezia, left the Rossoneri with almost their entire roster available.

Yacine Adli continued to wow with his style while playing in the trequartista position behind the strikers, though he also occasionally dropped deeper.

Rafael Leao made numerous threats in the early going, coming close with a few shots, before finally scoring with an incredible lob over the goalkeeper after controlling the Davide Calabria ball over the top with a superb first touch.

Moments later, Adli crossed the six-yard box with a pass that Ante Rebic only needed to tap in at the back post for the second goal.

Leao was replaced for the second half by Junior Messias, who scored within the first ten minutes after Theo Hernandez sped past a defender.

Rebic assisted Alexis Saelemaekers, who saw his shot cleared off the line, but Adli was waiting for the rebound and gave a fist-pump to celebrate his first goal.

After Stefano Pioli made numerous substitutions, Matteo Gabbia made it 5-0 with a header. Antonio Mirante had to make a few saves to keep the scoreless record intact.
