MN: Milan lacked excitement but were ‘exceptional defensively’ in win over Empoli

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan claimed all three points in their clash against Empoli last night thanks to a left-footed strike by Pierre Kalulu. The Rossoneri were far from exciting but got the job done and now sit five points clear at the top. 

As highlighted by MilanNews, Stefano Pioli’s men weren’t exactly that exciting to watch last night but they were exceptional in the defensive phase. And besides, at this stage of the season, the only thing that matters is the win.

Milan are now five points clear at the top, as mentioned, and it remains to be seen if that will stand as Inter and Napoli will play today (vs. Torino and Hellas Verona respectively). Of course, the Nerazzurri also have their game in hand against Bologna.

Claiming all three points last night could prove to be decisive for the Rossoneri at the end of the season, with just nine games remaining of the season now.
