The Bianconeri struck by hosts…
Milan earned a surprising 1-0 victory over defending champion and Serie A leader Juventus on Sunday, making guests’ second defeat this season.
Brazilian striker Robinho put Milan in front from the penalty spot with 30 minutes played following Mauricio Isla’s handball.
Juventus’ goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon almost gifted the hosts a second goal early in the second half when his weak pass went straight to Stephan El Shaarawy, but the forward was dispossessed by Andrea Barzagli before he could get his shot away.
Sebastian Giovinco went closest to equalizing, but only to see his overhead kick float over the crossbar. As for the Rossoneri, veteran Mario Yepes went close with seven minutes left to play as his header was saved by Buffon.
Anyway, a handball or not handball – this is a compensation for the referee error in last season’s match, which ended 1-1 after Sulley Muntari’s goal was not spotted by the officials. Either way, the revenge has been served just the other season.
As Justin Timberlake would say “What goes around, comes around.”
