AC Milan established a commanding 4-1 lead against Empoli thanks to two quickfire goals from Alessandro Florenzi and Theo Hernandez.
Just after the hour mark, the Rossoneri got their third goal of the match. A dangerous free-kick was conceded by Empoli for a foul on Saelemaekers just over 20 yards out and it was Florenzi who took on the responsibility, firing it through the wall and past a motionless Vicario into the corner for his first Milan goal.
It didn’t take long for a fourth goal to arrive and it came in rather bizarre circumstances. A cross from the left side went all the way to the far post where a ricochet allowed Theo Hernandez to fire in amid calls for an offside or a handball, but replays showed if anything a penalty would have been given as the ball dropped to Theo off the arm of an Empoli defender.
Just like Tonali’s first goal,weldone @Florenze,vamos to the team we love our X’mas gift,forza milan
