Naples on a boulevard
Still deprived of Mike Maignan, Theo Hernandez and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the Milanese cracked from the start of the game, with a nice collective movement concluded by Sergej Milinkovic-Savic (1-0, 4th), and Mattia Zaccagni doubled the bet shortly before the break (2-0, 38th).
With a nice free kick from Ismail Bennacer close to the post (48th), Milan thought they could come back, but Lazio killed the match on a penalty conceded by Pierre Kalulu and converted by Luis Alberto (3-0, 67th). In the process, Felipe Anderson drove the point home in the middle of an apathetic defense (4-0, 75th).
