Serie A may already know the winner, but there is still a lot to watch. The fight for the European Cup will probably go on until the last round and there are six teams involved. AC Milan must also fight for the Champions League. Theo Hernández has made a great contribution to making this happen.
Naples are champions, but what next? There is only 8 points difference between second and seventh place, so there is a lot to play for in the last rounds. Teams like Lazio, Juventus, AC and Inter Milan, Atalanta and AS Roma are still fighting for the Champions League.
AC Milan, however, took a very important step in their Champions League journey on Saturday afternoon. The aforementioned Lazio arrived at the San Siro and an attractive spectacle was expected. Perhaps more attractive than what we finally got.
Anyway, the Rossoneri were aware of their situation and were the slightly better team in the match. In the 17th minute they went ahead after a goal by Ismael Bennacero. Twelve minutes later, his teammate from the defence scored for a change.
Goalkeeper Mike Maignan notched arguably the easiest assist of his career when, after Theo Hernández received the ball from him, the left-back ran almost the entire field from his own sixteen.
The French footballer made it relatively easily to the opponents’ penalty area, where the defence gave him enough time to take care of a fantastic technical finish. A wonderful footballing moment!
No more goals in the match and AC Milan take the important three points for a 2: 0 win. Hernández then scored his fourth goal of the season. He is so close to matching the previous seasons, having scored five times last season and seven times the year before.
Moreover, the 25-year-old showed once again that he can handle the offensive side of the game with grace, in addition to the defensive side. So far, he has played 161 competitive games for the Rossoneri, scoring 24 goals and adding 28 assists.
