Milan fans were treated to small glimpses of exciting football from their side in Saturday’s dramatic 2-1 win over Genoa.
The Rossoneri came from a goal down at the Marassi as Lasse Schone’s free-kick gave the Grifone a one-goal lead, with Theo Hernandez and Franck Kessie netting in response.
Pepe Reina – who should have done better for the opener – then saved a penalty from Schone in added time to preserve the three points and stop a run of three straight losses.
Kessie’s goal came from the spot after a neat exchange between Giacomo Bonaventura with substitutes Lucas Paqueta and Rafael Leao; the latter winning a penalty for a handball which also resulted in a red card – one of four in the game.
Below you can see the sequence of play, and one of the rare moments under Giampaolo where Milan have looked slick and sharp.
This sequence from Paquetá is what gets you excited. The raw talent is there, decision making will improve as he matures. Good outing from him today pic.twitter.com/izMpq8bZoi
