MILAN, GAZZETTA – As reported by the Gazzetta, Milan must really put the turbo with Sassuolo to set the record straight.
Milan, Gazzetta: “You can’t change bomber gear with Sassuolo”
“Hundred days are many, yet it seems a little like yesterday. Pioli is still on fire, his Milan is always in the lead – even if in the company of five other teams – and those two score in front. Rafael Leao and Olivier Giroud got back to work on Saturday with Bologna, just in time to show up with warm feet for a special occasion: the tricks of fate (and the computer of the Lega di A) have created another Sassuolo-Milan in exactly one hundred days from the Scudetto match, the longest afternoon in recent Rossoneri history. That 22nd May, they were the ones who kicked off the party: Leao was an impregnable bike that cut the field and served balls in the center of the area, Giroud a tricolor sentence that collected them and threw them behind Councils.
The replay of the other night at San Siro said that yes, time has stopped also for the pair of goals: Rafa and Olivier, scorers of the Scudetto with 11 goals each, with Bologna they broke the ice together (one goal the Portuguese and one the French) and always together have shown that chemistry does not vanish within a summer. Look back at Giroud’s 2-0 scissor kick last night: when he invents on the 17th, he scores on the 9th. There is no better premise to set foot in the party stadium ”.
