By Steph Insixiengmay -

The AC Milan Women returned from the international break in triumphant fashion as they trounced A.S.D.C. Pomigliano by a score of 6-2.

Though the Champions League may be out of reach for them, they can still end the season by finishing third on the table. Here’s a recap of how the match happened…

The formations

AC Milan (3-4-3): Giuliani; Árnadóttir, Agard, Fusetti; Guagni (12’st Longo), Adami (87′ Selimhodzic), Boureille, Tucceri Cimini (46′ Thrige); Thomas, Piemonte (76′ Stapelfeldt), Bergamaschi (87′ Miotto)

Pomigliano (4-2-3-1): Cetinja; Apicella, Varriale (46′ Ejangue), Cox, Fusini; Tudisco, Ferrario; Vaitukaityte (46′ Moraca), Ippolito, Banusic (79′ Mastrantonio); Della Peruta

The Game

The Rossonere put their foot on the pedal from the get-go and it wouldn’t take long for them to find the back of the net. In the fifth minute, Thomas broke down the right and found Bergamaschi, who tapped it in from close range.

Milan doubled their advantage at the 15th-minute mark after Lina Tucceri Cimini whipped in an accurate cross and Martina Piemonte headed it home.

Greta Adami would soon join in on the fun, as she bagged the team’s third in the 27th minute. Six minutes later, Captain Bergamaschi won back possession at the edge of the area and beat Sara Cetinja with a lob.

The Rossonere would then have four goals on the scoresheet, but Pomigliano then responded through Della Peruta and managed to pull one back to make it 4-1. However, just before the half-time interval, Piemonte scored and made it five with a right-footed strike from the edge of the box.

The second half of the game was played at a slower tempo than the first. Milan, however, remained in control, though they were slightly rattled after Giuseppina Moraca scored a worlder for the guests on the hour mark. The Rossonere would not take this lying down and pushed forward to add to their lead.

Thomas and Longo were the main threats for the team, as they tried their hardest to add to Milan’s goal tally. The sixth goal would, however, come courtesy of a substitute, and that sub was Nina Stapelfeldt. In the 79th minute, Stapelfeldt received the ball from Thomas and fired past Pomigliano’s keeper with her right foot. Thomas, like Tucceri Cimini, had two assists on this day.

The ref would blow the final whistle and the match would finish 6-2 in favour of the hosts.

The stats

Unsurprisingly, Milan dominated their opponents. As per the FIGC (via Opta), Milan had 64% possession during this match. They also outshot their opponents by a ratio of 26 to 7, with 13 shots inside the box.

The Rossonere more than deserved this victory. It was also their third in a row.

Up next
