A costly slip-up by the Bianconeri as they drop out of top-four following an embarrassing home defeat at the hands of their bitter rivals.
AC Milan were heads and shoulders above Juventus in their latest Serie A meeting as they cruised to a 3-0 victory at the Allianz Stadium on Sunday.
The result could heavily influence how the Serie A top-four looks at the end of the season, with Milan now sitting three points above fifth-placed Juventus at third. Andrea’s Pirlo men earlier conceded their league crown to Inter Milan and now risk missing out on Champions League football next season.
A peach of a strike from Brahim Diaz gave the visitors the lead on the stroke of half-time. Diaz powered a curling effort that went over the crowd of bodies in its way and into Wojciech Szczesny’s net.
Stefano Pilo’s side could have increased their advantage inside the first ten minutes of the second half had Franck Kessie’s shot from the penalty spot been more efficient, with the Ivorian midfielder’s lame effort saved by the diving Juve No.1.
They did, however, doubled their lead not long after. Szczesny once again looked helpless as substitute Ante Rebic unleashed a powerful shot from the edge of the six-yard box into the top-left corner of the net.
It was Fikayo Tomori who dealt the final blow, with the Chelsea loanee heading home in stoppage time to score his first goal for Milan.
