Video highlights: Frosinone 2-4 AC Milan – Abate starts comeback for stuttering Milan

Posted by

Frosinone were looking surprisingly good initially, and it appeared as though AC Milan could struggle away from home. There were half chances for both sides, but the home side were arguably having the better of it.

Milan should have taken the lead first though, but a combination of poor finishing and a fantastic double save from the Frosinone goalkeeper kept things level.

And Milan were made to rue their missed chances shortly after, with Daniel Ciofani punishing them with just 20 minutes gone. It was far too easy for Frosinone, who eight seconds before scoring were defending a Milan attack.

Frosinone shot-stopper Nicola Leali quickly through it out into midfield, and with one pass the home side completely took Milan’s defence out of the game. Ciofani had far too much time and space as he bore down on goal, slotting the ball past young keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.

The first half ended 0-0, but there was hope that the game would pick up in the second 45.

That’s exactly what happened, and just five minutes into the second half Milan equalised. Right-back Ignazio Abate got the goal, and he was left in far too much space down the flank as Milan countered. The full-back finished with aplomb, and the tables looked to be turning.

There was a clear gulf in class following the goal, and things soon swung Milan’s way. There were goals from Carlos Bacca and Alex over the course of the next 20 minutes, and it 3-1 things looked to be done and dusted.

seven minutes from time however, the home side clawed one back through Federico Dionisi, and it looked as though we could be set for a tense finish.

Milan completed their comeback in style though, with arguably the Man of the Match Giacomo Bonaventura grabbing a goal in injury time.

The win sends Milan up into sixth, although they are still some way off the top of the table – with local rivals Inter Milan on eight points ahead with a game in hand.

Frosinone are in serious trouble at the bottom of the table though, and are currently in the relegation zone. There are a number of teams around them on similar points, but most have a game in hand.
