After a short corner kick was sent within the box in the 12th minute, Spezia defender Caldara
responded with a heel shot at the goal. Tatarusano, the star goalie for Milan, sent it away
for a corner.
One minute later, Rafael Liao launched a counterattack after making an outstanding
individual effort. The Portuguese winger passed with excellent physical strength from three

ground shot that Milan goalkeeper Dragovsky expertly kept out of the net.
After Krunic fired a rocket shot that hit the crossbar, bounced and found Liao on the left side

When Liao received the ball outside the penalty area in the 45th minute, he fired a hard shot
with his left foot that struck a Spezia player, changed course and hit the crossbar before
rebounding back to Krunic, who then fired a shot toward the middle of the goal, which the goalkeeper stopped with his foot outside the penalty area.

Spezia midfielder Daniel Maldini scored the equalizer in the 59th minute, who received the ball on the edge of the area, cut inside from the left side, and fired a strong and graceful shot to the left of goalkeeper Tatarusano.
Moreover, Sandro Tonali scored a beautiful goal for Milan in the 65th minute after Origi passed the ball from the right side to the edges of the area. However, the referee later reviewed the video and decided that Tomori, a defender, had committed a foul for his forceful intervention on the downs just prior to the goal attack.
When the ball reached substitute Charles de Kittelar in front of the goal in the 86th minute, he struck it oddly, causing it to strike a Spezia defender and go out for a corner.
After receiving a beautiful cross from Tonali and connecting with it with a wonderful shot on goal, Giroud, who entered the game as a substitute in the second half, scored the game-winning goal for Milan in the 89th minute. Giroud was sent off for celebrating the goal by taking off his shirt, earning him a second yellow and then a red card.
