Highlights: Milan 0-0 Roma


MILAN WILL have to fight for the third place in the final matchday after drawing Roma at Stadio San Siro on Sunday evening. The first half was very dynamic with both sides getting decent chances to score, but both goalkeepers – especially Christian Abbiati – looked good and kept the game even. There were, however, some ugly episodes in the first half as Mario Balotelli had to ‘shhh’ the Roma crowd that chanted racist abuses towards him. In the 41′ minute, Balotelli was booked for a foul but Sulley Muntari was not too happy with the decision, holding the referee’s arm and trying to talk to him and preventing him for booking Balo. Gianluca Rocchi wasn’t pleased and sent Muntari off with a direct red to keep Milan in 10 man. The second half was the weaker of the two. The game was stopped three minutes into the second half because of the racist chants coming from the Roma fans. The game resumed quickly but there were not many chances in the second half, although Milan looked better despite being with a man down, and both sides tried to score mainly with shots from distance. The ref added six minutes of stoppage time and in the 92′ minute, Francesco Totti picked up a red card of his own after elbowing Philippe Mexes in Roma’s half. This red card magically erased a minute and Rocchi whistled after five minutes instead. Milan have to beat Siena for the Champions League.

However just to enlighten u a bit..Juve’s problems were akin to what we are having now..they employed the wrong coaches..Ferrera and Co.. When the got Conte wit d same set of players what happened? He even had to bring back Giovinco that was hitherto frozen out by an “Allegri-like” Ferrera.. Have u ever pondered for a moment what wld ve happened to Milan if team like Inter, Lazio , Fiorentina and Roma had maintained their initial tempo like Napoli and Juve? Exactly what happens… Read more »
