MILAN WERE close, but their comeback wasn’t enough on Tuesday evening at Stadio Renzo Barbera against Palermo. Milan started the game with a 3-5-2 formation and it didn’t work at all as Palermo were the better side and got the lead through Fabrizio Miccoli in the 45+1′ minute as the Italian converted a very questionable penalty. Franco Brienza scored the second goal for Palermo right after the second half kickoff (47′) and Massimiliano Allegri was forced to introduce new players in, bringing on Urby Emanuelson (half time), Bojan Krkic and Giampaolo Pazzini. Krkic was absolutely phenomenal when he came in as he led Milan’s comeback along with Riccardo Montolivo, who pulled one back for Milan in the 69′ minute. Stephan El Shaarawy made it 2-2 in the 80′ minute but it was too little too late again for Milan who still haven’t won two games in a row this season, collecting just 11 from 30 points.
