AC Milan and AS Roma played to an entertaining draw on Monday night, with the hosts twice coming from a goal down to equalize against the undefeated Giallorossi.
Mattia Destro got things started for the guests with a fine goal after only 13 minutes when, having received Kevin Strootman’s sublime cut-back across the face of goal, he tapped the ball into the back of the net at the far post.
Just before the half-hour mark, however, Milan were level.
Cristian Zapata, who also did yeoman’s service on the defensive side of the ball at the San Siro, temporarily brought the Rossoneri back to level terms when he directed the ball past Morgan De Sanctis following Sulley Muntari’s headed pass from Kaka’s corner.
But Roma were back in front just six minutes after the restart—Strootman calmly converting from the spot after substitute goalkeeper Gabriel was penalized for chopping down Gervinho inside the Milan area.
The hosts then proceeded to pile on the pressure and got their equalizer when Kaka and Mario Balotelli combined to set up Muntari for a shot that beat De Sanctis to the near post.
On target: 4-4
