In the Italian league, Milan took another step towards the title with a 1-3 victory at Verona Stadium. One-year-old Sandro Tonali corrected a lopsided position for the Rossoneri, who kept city rival Inter at two points.
Rival Inter had already won on Friday night, so Milan had to get at least a point to stay on top. Things weren’t going well for a while when Varoni opened the scoring for the hosts, but Tonali lit up his 22nd birthday with a goal.
The year-old midfielder savored that and struck for a second time right after the break. Once again after a assist from Liao, Tonali scored his second goal of the evening. In the final stage, Florenzi scored the final score 1-3.
With two days left until the end, Milan maintains a two-point lead over Inter. The Rossoneri still face Atalanta and Sassuolo, and Inter still face Cagliari and Sampdoria. Milan is chasing its first title since 2011, and Inter won the championship last year.
