Ten-man Hellas hang on for a historic result at the San Siro as Verona's unbeaten run continues.
#1. No Ibra no party. The big news pre-match was that Ibra was out with a bout of the flu. The big Swede has led a revitalised Milan since signing in December, so his absence was a massive blow for the home side.
#2. A worthy point. After just 13 minutes, Verona took the lead in front of 55,000 at the San Siro. Faraoni's header from a wicked cross whipped in from the left by Zaccagni put Hellas in front, only for Calhanoglu to equalise 15 minutes later. In the second half it was Verona who created the better opportunities, with both Zaccagni and Pessina hitting the upright in a twenty minute period that Verona dominated. Six games unbeaten now for Hellas and twelve games in a row in which they've found the net. A performance and result that heaps further credibility on a side that has already surprised many this season.
#3.Faraoni and Zaccagni deliver. Dynamic, direct and incisive, both made outstanding contributions going forward for Hellas. Portuguese veteran Veloso also continues to go quietly and effectively about his business. He had 72 touches and recovered the ball 12 times (more than any other Hellas player on both counts).
#4. Amrabat sees red. Until his red card on the 68th minute, it was yet another commanding performance from Amrabat. His dismissal (after a VAR intervention to upgrade his yellow to a red), marked a turning point in the game, ensuring a nervy final 20 minutes for a ten man Verona. Notwithstanding his moment of indiscretion, the Moroccan continues to impress and Fiorentina will be will pleased with their acquisition.
#5.A family affair. Finally, a moment of history for Milan as the third generation of the Maldini family, Daniel, made his debut in the closing minutes of the game.
Coming up: On Wednesday night Hellas face an in form Lazio while on Saturday night the Bentegodi plays host to Juve.
