The atmosphere of big nights floated on San Siro on Tuesday. And it was indeed a great Champions League evening. With the three points on arrival for AC Milan against PSG (2-1). Luis Enrique's men lose the head of the group (the classification of group F here), those of Stefano Pioli are completely relaunching in the race for qualification. With their victory against Newcastle, the Dortmund players are in the lead (7 pts), ahead of PSG (6), Milan (5) and the Mapies (4). Total suspense before the last two days.
The fire in the outdated but so impressive stands of the Lombard enclosure, the fire on the pitch too. Crazy, fiery match, the two teams going from one goal to the other in search of the KO. At least in the first half, we will come back to it. Paris found the opening first, Skriniar taking advantage of the generosity of the local defense on a corner deflected by Marquinhos (0-1, 9th). After two chances harvested (6th, 11th) by Milan, Leao equalized with a return, while Donnarumma, jeered before, during and after the match by his former supporters, repelled a strike from Giroud in his direction (1-1 , 12th).
Dembélé delighted his partners and found the bar (27th), before a lightning counter from Milan and Giroud on arrival in the continuity of the action (27th). Symbolic sequence of a first period all fired up. Big fight, Milan having clearly strengthened their midfield compared to the first leg. PSG nevertheless seemed to get the measure of its host as the minutes passed, before the break (1-1, MT).
It wasn't going to last. At the restart, it was even Milan who took the advantage. While the Parisians had stopped, after what they considered to be a foul by Leao on Hakimi in the area, the game continued, cross for the head of Giroud, Skriniar and Donnarumma beaten (2-1, 50th). Mbappé finally offered his team a situation, the first of the second act (69th), but Paris was struggling. Difficulty existing, applying one's ideas. Hard to play actually.
While they remained in four matches without a victory, in all competitions, and they had not yet scored a single goal in C1 so far, the Milanese released the match from the start of the season, like 'an astonishing Loftus-Cheek. Leao, we know. What a festival! The Portuguese showed his power, his technique and his talent all evening. A poison. Skriniar had to sacrifice himself by collecting a warning, the fifth of the match for PSG, in order to avoid a face to face with Donnarumma (80th).
It's better than a third Milan goal... PSG pushed at the very end of the match, the incoming Lee hitting the woodwork (90th) after a high-class individual action, in vain (2-1). Disappointing in the second half after a high-level first act, Paris, which is struggling far from its Parc des Princes, relapses and loses its first place. In the standings, the four teams are tied in three points: everything remains to be done in this group F.
