Tottenham Hotspur and AC Milan, which will clash in the European Football Federation Champions League (UCL), broke their recent slump and won after a long time.
On the 11th (Korean time), Milan, who played the 22nd round of the 2022-2023 Italian Serie A at San Siro in Milan, Italy, won a 1-0 victory over Torino.
It was thanks to the lack of decisiveness of the Torino strikers that the difficult game ended without a goal. In the number of shots, Torino recorded 12 times, more than Milan’s 9 times. There was also a scene where Milan defender Simon Kijer hesitated even though the ball could be easily handled and was stolen by opposing striker Antonio Sanabria. At this time, Kiyer and goalkeeper Ciprian Tutterushanu were not in sync. Milan’s main goalkeeper Mike Mennan’s injury gap was noticeable.
Milan’s precious opening goal was scored by main striker Giroud. It was a collaboration between French national players. In the 17th minute of the second half, Theo Hernandez’s accurate left-footed cross was finished by Giroud’s head. Giroud recorded 7 goals and 4 assists in the league, and Hernandez, who was a little less destructive this season, recorded 2 goals and 3 assists.
It wasn’t a satisfactory performance, but it broke the tie of a draw. Milan was in a serious slump with 2 draws and 5 losses in the previous 7 matches (including the cup competition). In particular, it was on a four-game losing streak before the game against Torino. Due to this sluggish performance, both Supercoppa Italiana and Coppa Italia were eliminated. Also, with 3 consecutive Serie A losses, it fell to 6th place at one time. It was a sudden downfall for the team that competed for the lead with Kim Min-jae’s team, Napoli, at the beginning of the season. 메이저놀이터
Also, Milan’s star Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has been out of injury since before the start of this season, finally returned to the roster and sat on the bench against Torino. Although his condition is not yet perfect, he has prepared a foothold for a replacement match against Tottenham.
