Despite a two-goal advantage thanks to Barella (2nd) and Lautaro (15th), the Lombard club was trapped on the achievements of Cabral (33rd sp) and Ikon (60th). Lautaro then restored his team’s lead (73′) but Jovic still equalized (90′)… before Mkhitaryan’s winning goal (90’+4). Another crazy game with the Nerazzurri!

11. Varane’s tears… Back to an excellent level, Raphal Varane was slowed in his momentum Stramford Bridge.

Didier Deschamps may be worried.
