AC Milan is stalling. This Sunday, at the end of the 18th day of Serie A, the Rossoneri of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Théo Hernandez, bowed to Napoli on the smallest of scores (0-1). Eljif Elmas, by resuming victoriously from the head a corner kicked by Piotr Zielińsk from the 5th minute, scored the only achievement of this much awaited shock in Italy but far from having kept its promises. The Lombard club, like the Swedish giant, narrowly missed in the last gesture.
Even if Stefano Pioli’s men thought for a while to snatch a point, before Frank Kessié’s goal was finally refused after intervention by the VAR for some obscure reason (probably an offside position of Olivier Giroud in the heart of ‘a mess in the area of David Ospina), AC Milan, who have won only twice in the last 7 days, let Luciano Spalletti’s Napoli take back the place of dolphin of Inter Milan, officially assured of the honorary title of winter champion.
