AC Milan dropped two vital points last night as they were held to a 2-2 draw by bottom-placed side Salernitana in what was a disappointing performance.
La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) analyses the disappointing draw in Salerno, remarking how it is a 2-2 result that ‘seems almost a defeat’ given the magnitude of the game, the level of the opposition and the fact Inter can now take top spot back.
The paper highlights a certain tiredness in Stefano Pioli’s team as they took an early lead but were unable to sustain any real pressure or intensity, conceding either side of the break to end up 2-1 down before Rebic answer back.
Nothing is lost, but Milan are tired and it seems at the moment as though a few players have played too much. If the coach really can’t find the right time for his starters to catch their breath then the fight with Inter will not go on for much longer. It could well be a lag effect after the injury crisis, when a lot of players got a lot of minutes in their legs.
