AC Milan’s five-game unbeaten run in the league came to an end after a 2-1 loss against table leaders Juventus.
Just when it seemed that the club would be able to go on a run of form that would see them finish in the top three of the Italian Serie A, Milan have suffered this major setback. It took the club plenty of hard work in order to recover from a run of four successive losses in the league. The loss against Juventus, though, was highly controversial with Milan conceding a late penalty. After the game, manager Vincenzo Montella refused to criticise the referee for his decision, as the result of the game was already done and dusted.
Mehdi Benatia gave Juventus the lead after just 30 minutes. However, the table leaders were unable to hold on to this lead for much longer with Milan equalising through Bacca in the 43rd minute.
