Juventus defeats Milan: It was AC Milan vs Juventus in Serie A. The match AC Milan vs Juventus ended in a 1-3 win for Juventus.
AC Milan welcomed Juventus to play their 16th match in Serie A.
Milan was unbeaten up until this match. The first goal of the match was scored by Federico Chiesa in the 18th minute to give Andrea Pirlo’s team the lead.
This goal was canceled by Davide Calabria 4 minutes before halftime to equalize for the hosts.
Federico Chiesa scored his and Juventus’ second goal in the 62nd minute to give Juventus the lead. Weston McKennie scored the 3rd and final goal for Juventus to put the game to bed in the 76th minute.
Milan stays at the top of the table with 37 points from 16 games. Juventus climbs to the 4th spot and has 30 points from 15 games.
After another win on Sunday, league leaders Milan remain top of the pile – just ahead of relentless city rivals Inter Milan – with an impressive 37 points already accrued.
It was a strong-willed performance by the Rossoneri to take all three points against promoted Benevento at the weekend, as midfielder Sandro Tonali was sent off in the first half, with Milan already a goal to the good through Franck Kessie‘s penalty.
Now clearly ahead in the Capocannoniere charts on 14 goals, Juventus talisman Cristiano Ronaldo netted another pair of goals in Sunday’s comfortable 4-1 victory over Udinese – a win which they will hope to use as a warm-up for their biggest test of the season so far.
Their over-reliance on one man to carry the attack though – as Juve has only the sixth-best goalscoring record in Serie A this season and Ronaldo has scored nearly half of them – has undermined any sustained attempt at catching up with the leaders.
