Salihamidzic scored a brace in yesterday’s match at the Olimpico as the bianconeri beat their rivals 3-2 in an enthralling match. Juve opened the score with captain Del Piero firing past Kalac however Inzaghi restored parity for Milan just minutes after.
Juve were looking second best at times in the first half against a determined Milan side, and this proved to be the key to Milan’s second goal. Bonera found the ex-bianconero alone in the box as he fired his and Milan’s second goal of the night in an empty net.
However, there was still time for another goal in the first half as Trezegeut’s header was saved by Kalac, but Brazzo simply tapped the ball in to end the first half in a 2-2 draw.
The second half started with Bonera’s dismissal for a very nasty tackle on Juve’s Sissoko. It was Salihamidzic’s night. Foul. Free-kick by Camoranesi, Salihamidzic header, Juveeee 3-2.
Milan pressed hard but could not find the needed goal while Juve’s substitute Stendardo will rue the fact that he could have scored his first goal for Juve when with an open net, he headed the ball awfully wide. Del Piero could have also made it 4-2 in the final minutes but his volley was saved by Kalac.
This leaves Juve with a definite place in the Champions League while Milan, four points adrift of Fiorentina, who still have to play Inter tonight, are starting to realise that a UEFA Cup prospect for next season might be more realistic for them.
