After approaching a calendar year undefeated in Serie A, Milan’s remarkable run was mercilessly shattered by old foes Juventus on Wednesday.
Stricken by both a series of injuries and a pre-game COVID-19 outbreak – which affected Rade Krunic and Ante Rebic – the Rossoneri encountered the Old Lady seriously short-handed in midfield and attack, with Davide Calabria asked to improvise in midfield.
A late equalizer from Brazilian defender Bremer – apparently a transfer window target for several bigger clubs across Europe – gave Torino a merited 1-1 draw with Verona in midweek.
Head coach Giampaolo reverted to using Sasa Lukic as a ‘number 10’ behind the front pair on Wednesday, with his team managing 17 attempts – though only two were ultimately on target – against a notoriously resilient visiting side.
