Chiesa's rocket adds to Milan's troubles

Dec 22 2018

MILAN A magnificent strike by Federico Chiesa gave Fiorentina a 1-0 win at AC Milan in Serie A on Saturday on another unhappy afternoon for Gennaro Gattuso's injury-ravaged side. Milan, who completed three Serie A games without scoring, gave a disjointed performance but still created enough chances against a Fiorentina side who were largely toothless until Chiesa's inspired effort in the 73rd minute. The 21-year-old collected the ball in midfield, cut inside his marker and unleashed a vicious, dipping drive which flew past Gianluigi Donnarumma and bounced into the net. He was booked for pulling off his shirt and throwing it on to the pitch as he celebrated.
