UEFA Champions League – Rise to second place in the group standings, AC Milan takes the initiative to qualify

Serie A champions AC Milan in the 2022/23 UEFA Champions League Group E round 5, led by Gabia, Leao and Giroud, finally defeated Croatia’s Zagrebdi 4-0 Namor, who rose to second place in the group standings, successfully seized the initiative to qualify.

After AC Milan was double-killed by Chelsea in the Premier League in the first two rounds of the group stage, the qualifying situation was very bad, but the Rossoneri played very well in this round and finally won a victory. Therefore, in the final round of the group stage, AC Milan only needs to be undefeated against Red Bull Salzburg to successfully obtain a ticket to the knockout stage.

In addition, the last time AC Milan scored 4 goals in a single game in the Champions League can be traced back to the 2011/12 season, when the Rossoneri beat the Premier League’s Arsenal 4-0 at home in the first round of the 16 round. This record was achieved again after 10 years.

Pioli: You can’t just score 1 point against Salzburg

It is worth mentioning that Tonali, who contributed an assist and a penalty kick against Dinamo Zagreb, was also officially rated as the best of the game. In addition, Leao also contributed a goal, and also caused the opponent’s player Ljubic to put an own goal. Leao scored 7.9 points after the game, second only to Tonali with 9.0 points.

At present, AC Milan will compete with Red Bull Salzburg​ for the last qualifying spot. As long as they are unbeaten in this campaign, they will be able to advance to the knockout stage after 9 years. The Rossoneri coach Pioli said in an interview after the game, “It was a really good win, but I don’t think it’s enough to score just one point against Salzburg, which is a wrong attitude. , let alone how we handle the game.”
