Charles de Kitleri scored another Serie A win with Milan, and the defending champions were very strong against Sampdoria with a 1-2. De Kitleri scored his first goal for the Rossoneri in the first half, but the party was called off: after the intervention of the VAR, the goal was denied. The Aster Franks were also allowed to collect the first minutes of play in Milan.
De Ketelaere was allowed to start at base in Milan and watched how teammate Messias made it 0-1 after just six minutes. Fifteen minutes later, CDK’s moment of glory seemed to have come when he scored his first goal for Milan, but after a lengthy VAR intervention, the team failed. In the stage just before his goal, Olivier Giroud was offside. (Read more below the tweet and photo)
Milan then made things difficult for themselves when Rafael Leao received his second yellow card early in the second half, thus allowing him to quickly return to the dressing room. Although this was not intended at all: Leão wanted to try to score with a bicycle kick on a high cross, but hit the opponent’s face with his leg.
Ten minutes later, Sampdoria came to his side with a goal from former Anderlecht player Philippe Djuric. But thankfully, Olivier Giroud was still around to save the furniture – albeit with a penalty: 1-2 was the end result.
De Ketelaere was substituted in the 71st minute, while the Aster Franks were allowed in in the 78th minute to grab the first minutes of play. Alexis Saelemaekers remained on the bench, and Divock Origi was absent due to injury.
Milan are currently tied for first place with Napoli in the standings: both teams have 14 points from six matches. 1st stalker Atalanta (13 points) will play Cremonese on Sunday.
