AC Milan has failed to put pressure on fellow city-rivals Internazionale. The number 2 had to settle for a draw on his own field against mid-engine Udinese: 1-1. With that, the home team got away well. Franck Kessié’s equalizer, who scored from a penalty kick, fell deep into extra time.
AC Milan’s deficit on Inter is now 3 points. The leader will play against relegation candidate Parma on Thursday and brings the margin with the nearest attacker to 6 points with a victory. Rodrigo scored the opening goal in Milan after more than an hour. Bram Nuytinck and Marvin Zeegelaar had a basic place at Udinese. Thomas Ouwejan stayed on the bench.
Attack leader Zlatan Ibrahimovic was missing from AC Milan. The Swedish star is injured and will have to stay aside for at least another week. He is AC Milan’s top scorer in Serie A this season with fourteen goals in fourteen matches.
Atalanta won at home 5-1 against Crotone at the bottom of the league. Robin Gosens, José Luis Palomino, Luis Muriel, Josip Ilicic and Aleksei Mirantsjoek scored for the number 4. The Dutch Hans Hateboer, Marten de Roon and Sam Lammers were missing from the match selection of Atalanta.
With Rick Karsdorp as a late substitute, AS Roma won 2-1 at Fiorentina. The Roman club remained fifth, 2 points behind Atalanta.
