Milan beat Atalanta 2-0 in the match of 37 / a and penultimate matchday of Serie A. The leaders climb to 83 points, while Inter with the victory in Cagliari in the evening postponement remains at -2. THE CHRONICLE
Again them, the terrible two, Leao and Theo Hernandez, the left wing of Milan’s wonders, knocked Atalanta out and led the Rossoneri to take a decisive step towards the Scudetto. A very heavy victory, in perhaps the most difficult match of the Rossoneri’s championship final. Loaded by the tide of fans, with a creepy San Siro that believes in the dream, Milan struggled a bit in the first half, making too many mistakes and inaccuracies. Then he comes out in the second half thanks to a goal from Leao, more and more the Milan striker, who sends him under the legs of Musso and with an incredible coast to coast by Theo Hernandez who, ball and chain, goes all over the field and then finds doubling with a lightning-fast diagonal.
Milan once again are not wrong, manages to handle enormous pressure and takes his leave in the best way possible in front of his fans. At the end of the match there is a big party, players and the public celebrate a championship of the highest level, then the celebration of Stefano Pioli with the choir now soundtrack ‘Pioli is on fire’. The coach lets himself go and dances jumping on the pitch. It is also a celebration for the little ones, the sons of Messias, Kjaer and Giroud who try their hand at scoring goals under the Curva with the wave of the ultras. A total celebration but Zlatan Ibrahimovic missed the entry into the field. In Pioli’s five changes there was no room for the Swede. The future of the AC Milan champion is uncertain and the one against Atalanta may have been Zlatan’s last at San Siro. He lived the challenge from the bench, exulting at the goals with participation but was unable to say goodbye to the public. If he gets another chance, we’ll know in a few weeks. Meanwhile, Milan makes very few mistakes against a complicated opponent. Another piece, another obstacle overcome for these Rossoneri who continue to surprise, with the fifth consecutive victory.
Atalanta now have to win the last league game to secure a place in Europe. But there are few demerits of the Goddess, with Muriel not in the best of conditions. It was Pioli’s changes that changed the balance. The Milan coach calls Giroud and Saelemaekers, for Rebic and Messias, the Nerazzurri colleague places Zapata for Muriel and Malinovskiy for Pasalic. And right from the feet of Junior Messias the launch for Leao who, at 11 ‘exceeds Koopmeiners and beats Musso with a shot under the legs. The Atalanta players protest for a contact at the beginning of the action between Kalulu and Pessina but the Var confirms the goal. Milan needs the second to secure the result. And Theo Hernandez takes care of it with a ball-to-foot progression in the middle of four Atalanta players, then a diagonal that knocks out Musso. Doubling and San Siro in delirium, for a Milan that really manages everything. And when the Goddess tries to shorten a few minutes from the end, it is the usual Maignan who makes a wall, denying Zapata joy. Everything perfect, once again.
