2 – 0

AC Milan

  • Boateng s/o 89

The match had been tipped as one between the two sides that shall contend for the title this season, and despite the fact that the match might not have a decisive impact in the larger scheme of things, the anxiety before the game was for all to see, and it was a game that saw Milan’s prodigal son Andrea Pirlo(and also Alessandro Matri) play against his old team while as many as 6 Milan players- Abbiati, Zambrotta, Ibrahimovic, Nocerino, Aquilani and Inzaghi faced their old employers. Th clash was billed to be heavy duty and it was exactly that, but the result was just like the match had been, heavily one sided where in Juventus dominated Milan for large parts of the game with the ‘grinta’ that had been missing in the Juventus camp in the previous seasons now evident for all to see.

As for the match itself, Juventus came out aggressively right from the get go in a match that was the first realistic test of their title credentials and to reverse the trend of consecutive Milan victories on their home turf. The match began at a frantic pace, with both Milan and Juventus trying to seize the initiative but it was Bianconero Stefan Lichtsteiner who was the first to fire a shot at goal and Abbiati barely managed to turn it over before Abbiati denied Pirlo off a free kick just before the half hour mark.
