Giroud’s glory and a first since 2005: All the key stats from Milan’s win against Lazio

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan scored twice in the second half including a last-gasp winner as they came from behind to beat Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico.

Ciro Immobile opened the scoring inside five minutes but Olivier Giroud equalised not long into the second half, and after several clear chances the Rossoneri got their winner through Sandro Tonali to keep their Scudetto dream very much alive. Below are the best stats from the game, via the club website

➤ Milan have won three times against Lazio in a single season (two in Serie A, one in the Coppa Italia) for the first time since the 2004-05 campaign.

➤ The Rossoneri have become the first side to have at least 25 shots against Lazio in a Serie A match since Carpi on 8 May 2016 (26 back then).

➤ Milan conceded for the first time in 568 minutes in Serie A: the last time they’d allowed the opposition to score was on 25 February against Udinese.
