Lazio deserved more but a point is a point

There was a lot of expectation especially since the unbeatable Rossoneri had lost against Roma in Coppa Italia just a few days earlier. A win was possible. In the first minute Diego Fuser crossed from the right, Beppe Signori tried a volley which was too wide. Another Signori shot in the 7th minute was saved by Sebastiano Rossi. Then in the 10th Milan went ahead. Jean-Pierre Papin from 30 meters gave the ball a massive whack which ended in the top left hand corner. After attempts from Signori and Paul Gascoigne, all very well saved by Rossi, Milan made it two in the 38th minute. Zvonimir Boban tried a long pass to Daniele Massaro in the box, the ball hit the back of Aron Winter’s head catching Nando Orsi unawares. 2-0 for Milan, completely against the run of play.


A minute later Lazio reduced the deficit. Fuser to Roberto Bacci on the right, cross in the middle and Gazza scored.


In the second half Lazio attacked as if there was no tomorrow, Milan was unable to complete two passes in a row. In the 46th minute Gazza dribbled past half of the Rossoneri but his shot was weak. In the 79th a Signori attempt was marvellously saved by Rossi.


The Biancocelesti continued to press and in the 86th minute the finally managed to break down the Milan defence. Giovanni Stroppa from the left sent a good cross into the box and Cristiano Bergodi headed the ball in. Lazio deserved more but a point is a point , especially against Milan.
