Milan 0-1 Juventus: heavy red card leads to Milan defeat

Last Updated on 23/10/2023 by

The goal scored by Manuel Locatelli, which was assisted by a massive deflection, gave Juventus the victory over his previous team, Milan, who were playing with 10 men after Malick Thiaw was sent off.

Olivier Giroud’s angled drive was denied by an unbelievable low save by Wojciech Szczesny’s fingertip save. Rafael Leao raced away on the attack to set up Olivier Giroud, who’s shot was deflected just beyond the far post.

Filip Kostic and Adrien Rabiot both had powerful shots that went just wide of the goal, but the decisive moment for Juventus came when Milan was down to 10 players on the field.

Even though they were well beyond the penalty area, it was still ruled a clear scoring opportunity worthy of a straight red card because Moise Kean was running on goal when he was brought down by a blatant rugby tackle by Malick Thiaw.

Because Stefano Pioli needed to protect the defense, he substituted Pierre Kalulu for Pulisic when the latter came back into the game.

Soon after that, Rabiot sent a cross to the back post, and Kean had a golden opportunity to score, but he somehow managed to send the ball wide.

Daniele Rugani blocked a shot from Leao inside the penalty area, and 10-man Milan started the second half more energetically, but Juventus substituted Dusan Vlahovic for one of their defenders.

The long-range effort from Manuel Locatelli took a tremendous deflection off Rade Krunic to utterly fool Mirante, allowing Juventus to take the lead somewhat against the run of play with a stroke of good fortune. It was the first shot by Juventus, and it came from a guy who had previously played for Milan.

At the 85th minute mark, Mirante made his first stop by diving to his right and tipping a Vlahovic shot over the crossbar. The goalkeeper, who was 40 years old and had not featured in Serie A since 2021, produced a miraculous double save in stoppage time on a long-range attempt by Andrea Cambiaso and a follow-up shot by Vlahovic.

Max Allegri was so enraged that he threw off his shirt and tie in a fit of passion, despite the fact that his team was in the lead.
