AC Milan Primavera have gone top of their UEFA Youth League group after a commanding 3-0 victory against Dinamo Zagreb at the Vismara this afternoon.
The damage was done by Ignazio Abate’s side in the first half as Chaka Traore and Youns El Hilali combined for each of the first two goals. First it was the former setting up the latter in the 26th minute to open the scoring, then it happened vice versa right on the stroke of half time.
Milan had numerous chances to kill off the game once and for all in the second half, but the away side did not manage a single shot on target and had just three attempts in general in what was a very resolute defensive display from the Rossoneri.
The game was put to bed as Marko Lazetic came off the bench to score the third in added time, marking his return from injury in a positive way as Milan took advantage of the 1-1 draw between Chelsea and Red Bull Salzburg to go top of the group on four points.
