Roberto D’Aversa was voted best coach in August 2023. But since that time, Lecce suddenly declined. In the last 3 consecutive matches, this team has lost. Therefore, Lecce is predicted to have difficulty scoring against AC Milan.
AC Milan’s mini crisis temporarily ended after an impressive 2-1 victory over giant PSG in the Champions League arena. However, AC Milan is gradually losing in the Serie A championship race.
Therefore, they desperately need a victory against Lecce to return to the race. With superior force, AC Milan pressed forward from the start. Within 25 minutes, the away team had 2 goals scored by Olivier Giroud and Tijjani Reijnders.
I thought the 2-goal lead would help AC Milan play more sublimely. However, the second half is a completely different story. With nothing left to lose, Lecce rose up strongly. In just 4 minutes, from minute 66 to 60, Lecce immediately punctured AC Milan’s goal twice to bring the match back to the starting line.
In the remaining minutes, AC Milan pressed forward to attack, but encountered strong resistance. Giroud was even sent off the field in the 90+3 minute. Exactly 1 minute later, Lecce gave AC Milan a bitter taste with the third goal.
Fortunately for AC Milan, VAR intervened and did not recognize the goal. Letting their opponents hold a disappointing 2-2 draw, AC Milan is at risk of being widened by Juventus and Inter Milan.
