Gennaro Gattuso was forced to start a midfield three featuring a fullback, a winger, and Josè Mauri, although he did decide to leave Riccardo Montolivo on the bench. Stefano Pioli brought Edimilson Fernandes back into midfield, leaving Gerson, Bryan Dabo, and Christian Nørgaard on the bench.
At 72’, Federico Chiesa summoned a goal out of thin air. The winger cut inside and let fly from 30 yards out, whipping the ball into the bottom corner with pace and leaving Gianluigi Donnarumma absolutely no chance as he scored his third of the season.
Goals: Chiesa 72’ (ass. Veretout)
Cards: Pezzella 32’, Vitor Hugo 42’, Fernandes 62’, Suso 77’, Romagnoli 78’, Laxalt 90’+3
