Milan 1-1 Juventus: Emanuelson nullifies Pirlo and robs Juve of their spare man too

“1st v 2nd in Serie A – Milan remain a point ahead, but Juve have a game in hand. Max Allegri still has big selection problems – Kevin-Prince Boateng joined the injury list, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic was suspended. Antonio Conte’s first nine names on the teamsheet were as expected – but Marco Borriello and Fabio Quagliarella upfront was a big surprise. The game finished level, but Milan were the better side here – Conte made mistakes, and Milan played well. The Juve coach seemed to accept this, saying, ‘First of all we must praise Milan, as they played for an hour at the highest level and put us under pressure with our own weapons. Where I see that we went wrong, it’s also because they made us go wrong.’ Accordingly, the majority of the report will be looking at how Milan outwitted Juve.” Zonal Marking

Milan’s ‘ghost goal’ against Juventus leaves Serie A on a knife-edge
“The Milan supporters behind the press box in the Tribuna Rossa craned their necks, trying to catch a replay on the journalists’ TV screens. Others reached for their phones to demand answers from friends sat watching at home. But most of the 50,000 in attendance at San Siro didn’t bother. They needed no confirmation of what they had already seen: Sulley Muntari’s header entering the Juventus goal before being pushed back out by Gigi Buffon.” Guardian
