AC Milan's overall performance this season was disappointing, not only missing the Champions League round of 16, but also going out of the Coppa Italia early, and the league was thrown away by the city's rivals, losing the possibility of competing for the title. Fortunately, Juventus have also had a poor record recently, giving the Rossoneri hope of fighting for the runners-up. This weekend, the 25th round of Serie A continues, with AC Milan travelling to Monza. AC Milan have won all of their last three meetings, which is why fans are optimistic about them.

However, in the 90th minute, Daniel Maldini assisted his teammates to complete the stunner, Colombo sealed the victory, Monza won 4-2, the first victory over the Rossoneri in team history, and Juventus smiled and sat second in the standings.

With the Europa League play-offs just in midweek, Stefano Pioli rotated to a certain extent, with a number of key players including Rafael Leao, Olivier Giroud, Christian Pulisic and Reinders on the bench. In the 4-2-3-1 formation, Maignan continued to be the starting goalkeeper, Jiafu returned from injury with Te'o, Gabia and Florenzi in the back, Adli and Bennacer formed a double midfield, Okafor, Loftus-Cheek and Chukwueze three new signings came on together, and Jovic played the role of a lone arrow.

After the game began, AC Milan dominated possession and Monza wisely counter-attacked and achieved good results. In the 31st minute, Valentin Carboni made a 45° cross from the right, and the 1.98-meter-tall Djuric shook his head on the spot to attack the goal, Maignan did not react at all, but the ball hit the crossbar and the post and bounced.

Trailing AC Milan soon had a good chance to equalise, but in stoppage time, Loftus-Cheek's header was deflected, Jovic's volley was blocked, and Te'o couldn't hit the back of the net again.

The result clearly exceeded Pioli's expectations, and Pulisic, Rafael Leao and Reinders were brought on in succession. However, in the 51st minute, Jovic slapped Izzo in anger, and the referee showed him a red card to expel him, leaving AC Milan with 10 men to fight, which can be described as a matter of injury.
