Milan pay for historically bad starts

Milan have conceded the first goal for the sixth game in a row, which hadn’t happened since 1974 with Cesare Maldini in charge.

The Rossoneri are 1-0 down in the derby with Inter at the Stadio Meazza with Lautaro Martinez who gave the Nerazzurri the lead at minute 34 with a header at the near post.

As highlighted by journalist Giuseppe Pastore, this is the sixth consecutive match that sees Stefano Pioli’s men conceding the first goal and it happens for the first time since March-April 1974 when Cesare Maldini was the Rossoneri coach.

Pioli used a 3-5-2 line-up against Inter, dropping Rafael Leao for the second Serie A game in a row. Divock Origi and Olivier Giroud started in attack with Junior Messias in central midfield. The Brazilian was subbed off during the break, and replaced by Brahim Diaz.

Milan’s tactics didn’t work quite well in the first half as Inter dominated, leaving their city rivals only 26% possession in the opening 45 minutes.
