AC Milan vs PSG Full Match Reports
AC Milan brought an end to their streak of four winless games across all competitions in remarkable style, emerging victorious with a 2-1 triumph over Paris Saint-Germain at San Siro. This remarkable win marked Milan’s first victory of the UEFA Champions League (UCL) group stage.
The Rossoneri had failed to find the back of the net in the UCL prior to this match, let alone secure a win, making their task all the more daunting. The challenge grew even more significant when Milan Škriniar, a former Inter Milan center-back, headed in from close range just nine minutes into the game. The goal came from Marquinhos’ flick-on from a corner and marked Škriniar’s first goal for the club. However, Milan quickly rallied, and Rafael Leão leveled the score with a spectacular overhead kick, opening their UCL account.
Milan outperformed PSG in the first half, with Leão and Olivier Giroud both striking the side netting, while Gianluigi Donnarumma faced numerous tests in goal. Simultaneously, PSG posed a threat, with Ousmane Dembélé, who is still awaiting his first goal of the season, hitting the crossbar from a long-range effort.
Stefano Pioli’s motivational prowess was evident as his team took the lead just five minutes into the second half. Giroud, displaying his prowess in front of goal, scored his 24th UCL goal, and fifth against PSG, with a powerful bullet header, catching the visitors off guard. Substitute Noah Okafor came close to adding a third for Milan late in the game, but his attempt was expertly saved by Donnarumma.
PSG’s best opportunity to equalize fell to substitute Lee Kang-in, but his shot was superbly tipped onto the post by Mike Maignan. Consequently, Luis Enrique’s side witnessed their streak of five successive victories across all competitions come to a sudden halt, while their struggle against Milan continued, with just one victory in their last six encounters with tonight’s opponents. As for the hosts, this victory tightened the race in the highly competitive Group of Death, with just three points separating all four teams.
The Man of the Match honor was rightfully bestowed upon Olivier Giroud of AC Milan, who showcased his exceptional performance throughout the game.
