Four days after its success in the Champions League against Paris SG at San Siro (2-1), AC Milan did not confirm by conceding a draw in Lecce 2-2 after leading 2-0 on Saturday, during the 12th day of Serie A. Olivier Giroud, scorer at the start of the match of his 7th league goal of the season, was sent off for protest at the end of the match. The Rossoneri have not won in Serie A since the beginning of October. Stefano Pioli's third-placed side could lose their place if Napoli beat Empoli on Sunday. Lecce, who believed in victory at the end of the match (goal canceled), is 13th.
The match began with a hard blow for the Milanese with the exit in the 10th minute of Rafael Leao, injured in the right thigh after an acceleration. But as against Paris, the Milanese were able to count on their scorer Olivier Giroud. Author of the second goal against the Parisians, the Frenchman did it again by taking, like Tuesday, a cross from his compatriot Theo Hernandez, this time with the left thigh and not with the head (28th). Tijani Reijnders doubled the lead (35th) with a low shot between the legs of the opposing goalkeeper.
AC Milan was heading towards a quiet 2-0 success when Lecce sounded the revolt by scoring two goals in four minutes. Nicola Sansone, barely coming on, reduced the gap following a corner (66th), then Lameck Banda equalized after Milan lost the ball and while Hernandez remained on the ground after a duel (70th). ). In added time, Giroud, who claimed an opposing handball in the area, received a yellow card, then a red for protest (90th 3). At ten, the Milanese escaped the worst when Roberto Piccoli's superb goal, a strike from 25 meters, was finally canceled by the VAR due to a fault at the start of the action (90th 4).
