Atalanta 3-2 Milan: Rossoneri taste defeat by La Dea

Last Updated on 09/12/2023 by

Milan was able to overturn two goals scored by Ademola Lookman with goals scored by Olivier Giroud and Luka Jovic, but they were unable to do anything to stop the exquisite back-heel flick winner scored by Luis Muriel in stoppage overtime.

Giroud seen Djimsiti charge down an early shot, but Teun Koopmeiners blocked the Theo Hernandez follow-up with a high boot outside the area. This came about as a result of the good work that Christian Pulisic had done.

When Ademola Lookman nodded down a cross, De Ketelaere had the opportunity to put Atalanta ahead of his parent club, but to his incredible surprise, he ballooned over from six yards inside the penalty area.

Ederson diverted Fikayo Tomori’s volley into Juan Musso’s arms despite the fact that he was positioning himself at an acute angle.

Despite the fact that the referee awarded a free kick for De Ketelaere’s push on Theo Hernandez, he failed to capitalize on another opportunity to go one-on-one with Mike Maignan.

After controlling a Teun Koopmeiners ball over the top, Lookman cut inside between defenders and saw the finish take a tremendous deflection from Tomori to loop up over Maignan, who was powerless. This allowed Lookman to break the deadlock and win the game.

On the counterattack, Theo Hernandez was brought down by the first touch, but Milan managed to equalize deep into the stoppages of the first half. The disagreement arose when it appeared that Yunus Musah had pushed Lookman over, and the play continued, resulting in a Rossoneri corner kick. Florenzi then placed the ball on Giroud’s head in order to direct it under the bar.

After the break, for Milan Giroud missed the target from six yards out on a pull-back from Ruben Loftus and Cheek. Mario Pasalic’s angled drive took a tiny deflection off Tomori, and Maignan pushed Giorgio Scalvini’s strike over the bar after he made a good run from the middle of the field.

Atalanta shook things up and regained their advantage when Lookman sent De Ketelaere down the left side of the field. De Ketelaere then rolled across the face of the goal, and the Nigerian player fired the ball into the roof of the net from six yards out using the inside of his right boot.

Moments later, De Ketelaere came dangerously close to doing the same thing, but this time he flashed the ball inches wide from the center of the field.

In the 77th minute, Scalvini made a remarkable run that resulted in two consecutive sliding tackles that were successful in stinging Maignan’s gloves. The goalkeeper then scrambled back across the field to claw the Lookman follow-up off the line as well. The score should have been 3-1 at that point.

That proved to be a deciding factor, as Milan equalized the score a few moments later when Pulisic rolled across from the left side of the field, Giroud’s blunder allowed it to pass through, and replacement Luka Jovic scored from seven yards out.

The challenge that Davide Calabria made on Aleksei Miranchuk ultimately resulted in him receiving a second yellow card during the stoppages.

Miranchuk rolled over from the right side for Muriel, who took a touch to pull Maignan out and then startled him with a fantastic back-heel flick at the near post for 3-2. Milan was forced to pay for this because they were down to 10 men.
