On the 2021-2022 Serie A TIM matchday 37, Milan win 2-0 at the stadium Meazza with two goals in the second half.
It was a fairly even first half, with Muriel forcing the first save of the game off Maignan after 30 minutes. As for the rest, defenders prevailed over forwards. The deadlock was broken in the 56th minute through Leao, who quickly went on the counter but the Nerazzurri complained about not penalising Milan for a foul on Pessina on the edge of the Rossoneri box. Substitute Zapata tried his luck on 62 minutes first (he blasted over) and then on 71 minutes when his header was inches wide. However, Hernandez doubled the hosts’ lead on 75 minutes with a solo move. Zapata threatened again in the final minutes but the 2-0 scoreline lasted until the end.
