Milan beat Verona 3-1

 In a comeback and stay top of Serie A with a 2 point lead over Inter two days from the end of the championship. The Rossoneri went up to 80 against 78 from the Nerazzurri. The absolute protagonist of the evening Sandro Tonali, on his 22nd birthday, was inspired by the great Leao. The first goal in a first-half recovery, with which he responded to Faraoni's lead; then the goal that reversed the result early in the second half. 

In the end Florenzi also came in, which shut him down. Milan have a strong start, try to unblock them as soon as possible so as not to complicate life. With great intensity from the start, Krunic looked to restore Pioli's confidence by hitting the net twice. Tonali would have scored too, but his goal was ruled out for centimeter offside. Number 8, inspired, almost sent Calabria on the internet, to which the great Montipe responded. Verona suffered from Rossoneri aggression in the first 20', but on several occasions managed to come up with some quick play: Caprari and Simeone spooked Maignan, then the goal came, in the 38th minute with Faraoni. 

Great play by the hosts with Caprari pocketing for Lazovic on the left, a cross on the opposite flank where he found the Scaligeri captain to head the goalkeeper. This is his fourth goal in this league. Milan found the strength to react and drew in full recovery: Tomori took Leao deep, the Portuguese from the left sank into the area, put in the middle for Tonali who this time did, he got his birthday present and made it 1-1. In the 50th minute, the Serie A leaders turned the game around thanks to a quick counter-attack: Saelemaekers picked up the ball on the edge of his own penalty area and hit Rafael Leao. 

The Portuguese player flew into the box with the gas pedal, finally serving for Tonali to tap-in with an empty net. The first two goals of his career for the midfielder. A goal that had enormous specific weight, as it came in the first minute of the second half, allowed the Rossoneri to overcome it.

 In the end there was also a win for Florenzi: the full-back returned to the pitch after missing the last four games, came on in the 84th minute and three minutes later put the exclamation mark on the game with a beautiful diagonal that ended in the farthest bottom corner.
