Juventus let 2-goal lead slip in 4-2 loss at Milan

By The Assam Tribune

MILAN, July 8: Juventus missed the chance to take a big step towards a ninth successive Serie A title as it let a two-goal lead slip away in a surprising 4-2 loss at AC Milan.

After second-place Lazio lost 2-1 at relegation-threatened Lecce earlier, Juventus could have extended its lead at the top of the table to 10 points with a win on Tuesday.

A tight first half finished scoreless after Zlatan Ibrahimovic had a goal ruled out for offside shortly before the break.

But Adrien Rabiot broke the deadlock two minutes after the restart by curling a strike into the top right corner. And Cristiano Ronaldo doubled Juve�s lead six minutes later.

However, Milan turned the match around completely in the space of five minutes.

First Ibrahimovic converted a penalty in the 62nd minute following a handball from Leonardo Bonucci. Then came quickfire goals from Franck Kessi and substitute Rafael Leo.

Milan extended its advantage 10 minutes from full time when Giacomo Bonaventura capitalised on an error from Juventus defender Alex Sandro to set up Ante Rebic.

Lecce missed a penalty and also had a goal disallowed, but still managed an upset win over title-chasing Lazio.

Fabio Lucioni and Khouma Babacar scored for Lecce after Felipe Caicedo had given Lazio an early lead.

Lazio�s bad night was made worse when defender Patric was sent off for biting Giulio Donati in an incident that could lead to a lengthy ban. � AP
