The Rossoneri notched up a fourth consecutive victory in all competitions with a clean sheet, as after 1-0 wins they managed to make this 2-0.
A Theo Hernandez screamer of a volley from over 20 metres out hit the upright and ricocheted in off Juan Musso’s back, before Junior Messias sealed the scoreline with a dinked finish on Rafael Leao’s first-time pass.
“It’s true that we went through a complicated time, but with this victory we are getting back to being the Milan we were before,” he told DAZN.
“I consider it my goal! I’m going to count it as mine. Thanks also to Oli for knocking it down for me, it was a good goal.”
There was more good news for the Diavolo today, as Mike Maignan made his comeback after five months out with a calf strain, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic had his first appearance of the season since knee surgery in May 2022.
“We had wanted them back for a long time. Now we have to keep going like this, focus on another tough game next week against Fiorentina and after that the Champions League.”
Rafael Leao and Rade Krunic will not be able to play against the Viola next week, as they picked up yellow cards today and will be suspended.
