Watch: Giroud fires penalty in off the bar to double lead against Empoli

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan doubled their advantage against Empoli just after the half-hour mark as Olivier Giroud converted a penalty kick that was awarded after a VAR check for handball.

In the 32nd minute, Milan were getting ready to take a corner after Loftus-Cheek’s attempted overhead kick deflected behind, but VAR spotted it had brushed the raised hand of Maleh and a penalty was awarded. Giroud took on the responsibility, and found the back of the net via the underside of the bar.

    1. Really it’s rotation. Giroud didn’t play at all the last game. I would have still wanted to see Giroud subbed off at least.

      Still, we do have a match against Atalanta and Jovic will probably play from the start there.

    2. Jovic played full time against Cagliari and Giroud was fully rested. So this time Giroud played full time while Jovic rested for Atalanta which we will played mid week.
