Milan start their European season with a draw in Salzburg / C1 / Gr. E / Salzburg-Milan (1-1) /

Salzburg 1-1 Milan

Goals: Okafor (28e) for Salzburg // Saelemaekers (40e) for Milano

Never easy to gauge and anticipate, this Salzburg.

During the first day of the Champions League, the Austrian club also made life difficult for Milan, however favorites, and scored a good draw. If Giroud lit the first wick of the game by forgetting Leão on the action, it was indeed Okafor who opened the scoring at the half-hour mark: with a personal feat, the striker put Kalulu on the buttocks and found the way to the nets of Maignan. Fortunately for the Italians, who were rather dominating despite having difficulty in being dangerous, Saelemaekers equalized by completing a nice collective movement before the break.

Returning from the locker room, Fernando sent a great goal opportunity above the cages. The following ? Not much … Except a little anger from Calabria, revolted to have to leave his place, a few words exchanged between the different benches and a decisive stop by Maignan in front of Seiwald. This means that the end of the match was not very exciting, the two teams contenting themselves with this sharing of points despite a final chance for Sesko… and a post hit by Leão in the additional time, however.

See you now against Dinamo at San Siro because casually, it’s been more than nine years (September 18, 2013 against Celtic, to be precise) that the great Milan no longer won at home in C1.
