Instead of trying to beat Terracciano at the near post with a slide-rule pass from Tijjani Reijnders, Davide Calabria should have rolled the ball across the goal line instead.

Riccardo Sottil’s shot was aimed directly at Mike Maignan, while Nico Gonzalez’s curler was only a hair’s breadth away from the uppermost corner of the goal.

A deflected cross from Calabria challenged Terracciano at the near post, and on the resulting corner kick, the goalkeeper made a diving save to prevent a header from Tommaso Pobega. 

Theo Hernandez received a through pass from Jovic and raced toward goal before Fabiano Parisi brought him down inside the box, this gave Milan a chance on spot kick. This allowed Milan to break the deadlock in the first half stoppages. After a brief run-up, Theo Hernandez successfully converted the penalty kick on his own.

First, Samuel Chukwueze’s looping header tested Terracciano, and then Mike Maignan came flying off his line to push the ball off Lucas Beltran’s feet following a great Nico Gonzalez pass. Both Milan and Fiorentina had chances immediately after the break.

At the hour mark, Nico Gonzalez’s cross-shot was deflected off of Malick Thiaw, and it looped over Maignan before hitting the far post and rebounding.

Fiorentina also appealed for a handball penalty, but Ruben Loftus-Cheek’s crossed arms over his torso made it appear as though he was not enlarging the silhouette. 

Jovic also missed a great opportunity when he beat the offside trap, but an extended Terracciano boot stopped the weak prod. the feeble attempt at a shot on goal.

Francesco Camarda, who was born on March 10, 2008, is the youngest player in Serie A history. Milan introduced him off the bench, making history in the process. 

After a string of shots were blocked, Maxime Lopez’s attempt went just wide, but deep into stoppage time, Maignan made an incredible save to deny Rolando Mandragora from point-blank range.
