Milan’s run of poor results in the league continues after Stefano Pioli’s side also lost 3-1 at Udinese.
“Milan”, 3 games without a win in Serie A. Next trip to the leader “Napoli”
The current champion of Italy is seriously struggling for a place in the Champions League next season.
The team, which also features Ciprian Tetarushanu, lost 3-1 away to Udinese after a match in which the visitors were more concerned about possession.
In the 9th minute, the home team opened the scoring thanks to Roberto Pereira, who finished off Samardzic’s pass.
Milan restored parity in first-half stoppage time (45+3 min) through Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who converted a 11-metre strike, but went into the break still in charge after Beto scored on 45+5 min.
In the second half, Pioli tried to change things up by introducing Krunic and Rebic, but the game continued to fall short of expectations.
In addition, Udinese scored a third in the 70th minute when Dutchman Kingsley Ehiziboue headed home Mike Mainan.
With this result, Milan only deepens the crisis, considering that the double with Napoli in the quarter-finals of the Champions League is very close.
Milan will even face Luciano Spalletti’s side in the next round of the championship.
