Theoretically this was second best in Italy taking on second best in England although the second best in England is miles away from being the first.Nice touch but the Red Devils in allowing on loan full back Dalot to start against them. Milan were the better team in the first half, had goals from Franck Kessie and Raphael Leao disallowed. Pioli rightly using Zlatan sparingly as the striker needs a rest or two being on the wrong side of 35. Maguire should be ashamed at that miss at the far post from the corner. One of the misses of the season , not a great gong to get especially if you are a United Captain. The other Ivorian in the match, second half sub Amad Diallo put United ahead on 50 minutes. The former Atalanta lad making his much awaited debut,improvised a header from a floated cross by assist machine Bruno Fernandes. He has not even turned 19 yet so it is a remarkable feat to score in Europe on debut. You are allowed to make comparisons with a certain Wayne Rooney who scored for the same club on his European debut. when he was a bit older than Amad. In the end probably the fairest results happened. Danish defender Kjaer scoring from a header two minutes into injury time from a corner. Injury time goals at Old Trafford have been in abundance this season but not in favor of the home side. McTominay flat footed and exposed on the set piece. Advantage Milan going into the San Siro leg.
