MILAN – The round 29 Serie A match at the Bentegodi between Chievo-Milan has ended goalless.
The game didn’t take long to burst into life with both sides making lively starts, but Milan were forced into an early change on 19 minutes as Donnarumma had to make way for Abbiati after taking a knock to the head.
The teenager’s replacement was immediately called into action and he did superbly to make a great one-handed save on a Floro Flores angled drive. On the half-hour mark, Abbiati was involved again, keeping out a Meggiorini effort from close distance with his foot.
At the other end, Honda curled inches wide of the top-corner with a well-struck free-kick and Poli saw a drilled effort flash wide of the target on the stroke of half-time.
Milan emerged in determined mood after the break with Bonaventura cutting inside and firing a fierce effort just over the bar. Bacca then connected with a Honda cross only to send his header agonisingly wide of the far post.
The Rossoneri continued to pin Chievo back and were desperately unlucky not to find the breakthrough on 74 minutes, hitting the woodwork twice in quick succession. Abate firstly had a shot thump against the cross bar and then Bertolacci sent the rebound also onto the upright.
