Milan had a good start in the Europa League

Finishing half of the Celtic home side, but Milan won 3-1 in their Europa League stage match on October 22.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Milan’s most notable player, started but played just over an hour before making way for Rafael Leao. Having only scored a double against Inter five days earlier, the former Man5-007 star does not appear to have recovered his full health as he transfers to Scotland. He didn’t have a chance on Celtic ‘s foot, but he left his mark on Diaz’s double goal. Starting from the ball to the left wing of the old Swedish general, Theo Hernandez picked up pace, then went to Diaz to score.

Celtic saw two successive staff changes in the second half and switched to 4-1-4-1. Mohamed Elyounoussi, the Norwegian striker who substituted the Welsh milieu, gave the home team a header in the 76th minute, shortening the score to 1-2. The Milan Defender was sucked to the nearest post, where two tall Celtic players had selected positions. They couldn’t catch up with Elyounoussi as the ball dropped behind. 

Coach Lennon used two substitutions to reinforce the attack. In the last 15 minutes of the contest, the home side went up the ball more smoothly. They repeatedly penetrated the ban in Milan, but did not have a favorable shot to score further goals.

Brahim Diaz made it 2-0 to Milan

Witnessing Celtic ‘s job on corrections, Milan coach Stefano Pioli took rookie Jens Petter Hauge to the track. The Norwegian player made his debut on the 4th of October in a 3-0 win over Spezia. In this second contest, he scored a tight 11 m finish on the electronic floor, after a mighty break in the centre. 

Win 3-1, Milan is second in Group H in the Europa League, with three points like Lille but less of a gap. Victory in Scotland added trust to Pioli’s teachers and students at the Roma reception in Serie A on Monday, 26 October. At the moment, “Rossoneri” dominates the top of the table with 12 absolute points after four rounds.
