MN: Milan win with quality, heart and mentality to dismiss ‘Fatal Verona’ curse

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan moved four points away from being league champions thanks to a 3-1 come from behind win against Hellas Verona last night.

MilanNews writes how after last night’s win, the Rossoneri have now racked up three fantastic victories against Lazio, Fiorentina and Hellas Verona with quality, heart, mentality and awareness. The Scudetto target is just a stone’s throw away, with four points needed from the two games against Atalanta at San Siro and away against Sassuolo.

A lot had been said about the ‘Fatal Verona’ curse but it became the ‘Tonal Verona’ as the Rossoneri midfielder scored a brace on his birthday to overturn an opening goal from Faraoni. A phenomenal Leao also helped as he got two assists.

The work is not finished yet with two games still to play and points still to be won, but the win at the Bentegodi was a big test of character passed.

Pioli revealed that Ibrahimovic addressed the squad before the game: “We want to write our story. Ibrahimovic said a beautiful thing: ‘Everyone remembers Milan who won Scudetti and Champions Leagues, so if we want to be remembered we have three games’.” Now it has become two.
