Photos: Every angle of Milan’s tifo against PSG and the story behind it

By Isak Möller -

The tifo battle between the AC Milan and PSG ultras ended up being one of the best in a long time. After the French side’s display in the first leg, the Rossoneri responded with an impressive tifo before the 2-1 win last night. 

It was a great night of football underneath the lights at San Siro yesterday, with Milan claiming all three points after coming back from behind. Before kick-off, the Rossoneri fans showed their fantastic support with a very smart tifo, which covered the entire stadium (except the away end).

They displayed the texts ‘Always Milan’ and ‘Toujours Milan’, which is the same as the former but in French. The big feature, however, was displayed by the Curva Sud and involved Neo from the movie The Matrix. The famous scene when he stopped a bunch of bullets was the chosen one.

So, what’s the story behind the choice? In the reverse fixture at Parc de Princes, as you can see in the featured image, the PSG fans had a tifo of one of their founders Jean-Paul Belmondo. He was shooting towards the Milan badge at the other end of the stadium, and that’s why the Rossoneri responded with the scene from The Matrix.

In the gallery below, you can take a look at Milan’s tifo from multiple angles. It was certainly another example of the Curva Sud’s excellence.
