HIGHLIGHTS: Milan 2-1 Cagliari
Check out the most interesting moments of Milan’s win against Cagliari at home.
A moment of magic from Suso gave Milan the win on Sunday night, as they fought their way to a 2-1 win over Cagliari at the San Siro.
Patrick Cutrone had given the Rossoneri the lead early on, but the visitors deservedly bagged an equalizer and will feel desperately disappointed not to return home with something to show for their efforts as Suso’s superb free kick sealed the victory.
Milan ended the last campaign with a 2-1 defeat at Cagliari and their new-look side were fortunate not to see Cutrone’s opener pegged back long before the leveler arrived.
Vincenzo Montella’s men had won their first five competitive games of the season – including four in Europa League qualifying – without conceding, but Joao Pedro’s second-half strike finally beat Gianluigi Donnarumma to stun the home crowd. It was Franck Kessie who cheaply gave up possession on the edge of his own area and Cagliari swiftly moved the ball across their front line to Pedro.
Cagliari tried to rally again but a game-ending injury to Joao Pedro represented a big blow as Nikola Kalinic and Lucas Biglia finally debuted for Milan as they saw out victory after Donnarumma’s late save from Sau.
