With a thrilling 3-2 victory away at Frosinone, AC Milan maintained their chances of winning the Serie A championship.
In the Serie A match that took place on Saturday evening at Frosinone, Luka Jovic came off the bench to help his team secure a 3-2 victory over AC Milan. Despite the fact that the ball was bobbled inside the Frosinone area, the forward has been in excellent form and was in the perfect position to stab in the goal from close range. As a result of the victory, the team coached by Stefano Pioli was able to close the gap between themselves and the two teams that were ahead of them.
During the course of an entertaining match, the Rossoneri were in the lead, but they eventually fell behind. The game was ultimately decided when replacement Luka Jovic scored with his first touch nine minutes before the end of the match.
It was never going to be an easy night for Milan because Frosinone has a great home record, where they have picked up 21 of their 24 points. Milan was never going to know what to expect.
Olivier Giroud’s early header, which was a result of a magnificent cross from Rafael Leao, was quickly nullified when Leao was called for handball and Matias Soule scored with confidence from the penalty spot.
Milan was in a precarious situation when the Frosinone captain Luca Mazzitelli scored a goal for his team in the 65th minute, following a mistake made by Mike Maignan. However, the possibility of losing jolted Milan out of their slumber before they could take the lead.
First, Matteo Gabbia equalized the score with his first goal in Serie A, and then Jovic made a smart reaction finish to continue his excellent play over the past few games.
As a result of this win, Milan remains on the periphery of the title fight, five points behind Inter Milan, who are currently in first place despite having played two more games.
They are aware that at least one of Inter and Juventus, who are scheduled to play one other on Sunday, will suffer a loss of points this weekend! Jovic’s clinical finish ensured that Milan was able to cut the gap at the top, which was a vital goal for Milan to achieve.
