AC Milan were convincing in their win over Lazio yesterday evening as they ran out 2-0 victors to maintain a 100% start to the season.
The Rossoneri were intense in the press from start to finish and scored the opening goal their first half performance deserved just before the break through Rafael Leao. Franck Kessie missed a penalty moments later, but Zlatan Ibrahimovic came off the bench to seal the win in the second half.

I simply like ‘iron defense’ along with ‘attacking rage’ character of milan. 😍
