Milan Primavera 1-4 Fiorentina: Jimenez sent off as Rossoneri surrender early lead

By Euan Burns -

AC Milan Primavera were beaten 4-1 at home by Fiorentina with Alex Jimenez getting sent off thanks to two yellow cards.

The game started superbly for the Rossoneri as they took a 1-0 lead after just nine minutes of play. It was all thanks to the incredible work of forward Diego Sia, who set off from deep inside his own half and ran with the ball through multiple challenges until he made it into the Fiorentina box.

He then kept his composure to produce a fine finish into the bottom corner, and Milan were in front.

The novelty element of the game is that both Mattia Caldara and Gaetano Castrovilli were on the pitch for Milan and Fiorentina respectively, as they both continue to recover from long-term injuries.

Both teams were applying plenty of pressure in the first half but Milan still had their slender lead at the break.

That did not last long though, as Fallou Sene equalised for Fiorentina just two minutes into the second-half.

Francesco Camarda missed a great chance to put Milan back in front but his shot went high over the crossbar and less than 10 minutes later, Fiorentina were 2-1 with Leonardo Baroncelli scoring. To make matters worse, Alex Jimenez picked up a second yellow card in the aftermath and Milan were down 10.

Milan never looked like getting an equaliser with 10 players and a late goal from Maat Daniel Caprini made it 3-1 to Fiorentina, before Sene made it 4-1 in the dying stages.

That leaves Milan Primavera in fifth, whilst Fiorentina climb to ninth.

    1. Jimenez is not ready for the first team, I don’t know if right now he’d be more than backup even for a relegation team like Frosinone. Same is true for Bartesaghi.

      If we buy him and Real buys back, we’ll make some millions from a Primavera player that we didn’t even own. Real could have easily loaned him to many Serie B / Segunda teams. The whole thing is more good than bad and the same was true for Diaz.

      1. And then we’ll waste those millions signing another real player…

        Honestly the way people talk about money in football is the way gamblers talk about it.

        I won some cash so I’ll gamble it on the next bet.

        1. Did you not get the reference?

          It’s what Trump said and it’s true he is held to completely different standards. And players we sign from other clubs are held to completely different standards than our youth players.
