🏆👉 AC Milan won the first Silvio Berlusconi Trophy between Monza vs AC Milan played on Tuesday 8 August 2023 at the U-Power Stadium in Monza, Italy.  The game Trofeo Silvio Berlusconi is a friendly game to honor the President’s two beloved Clubs. The game was decided on penalties after the 1-1 ending with Monza 6 – 7 Milan.  Amazingly, none of the first five players on either side made a mistake in the shoot-out.  The sudden death was marked by Birindelli after hitting the crossbar giving the victory to AC Milan.

AC Milan opened the score in the 29th minute. Christian Pulisic, the former Chelsea player misses the penalty, saved by goalkeeper Michele Di Gregorio, but then scores on the rebound. This is a memorable goal because it is Pulisic’s first goal for AC Milan and the first in the Silvio Berlusconi Trophy. The action started with the American duets with forward Olivier Giroud, enters the area and is brought down cleanly by D’Ambrosio resulting in a penalty.

Milan’s advantage did not demoralize Monza, who immediately restarted to attack goalkeeper Mike Maignan’s goal, already engaged in a double save from close range at the beginning of the match. In the 32nd minute, Monza waste no time and equalized the score after only three minutes later thanks to a cross left footed shot by Andrea Colpani, primed with a valuable outside left by Carlos Augusto.

Stats before the game:  The first Silvio Berlusconi Trophy was created to honor and keep the memory of President Silvio Berlusconi alive.  Berlusconi was a figure who gave great prestige in both Clubs’ histories. In the coming seasons, the match venue will alternate between the stadiums of the two Clubs.  The owner of AC Milan from 1986 to 2017 – a total of 31 years – Silvio Berlusconi won 29 trophies: eight Scudetto titles, one Coppa Italia, the Supercoppa Italiana seven times, five European Cups/Champions Leagues, two Intercontinental Cups, one FIFA Club World Cup and five European/UEFA Super Cups. It means he oversaw the most successful period in the Rossoneri’s history.

On 28 September 2018, at Berlusconi behest, the Fininvest Group acquired AC Monza, at the time a Serie C side. The Biancorossi officially returned to Serie B after a 19-year absence on 8 June 2020 and, on 29 May 2022, achieved promotion to Serie A for the very first time, going on to enjoy an extraordinary campaign in the Italian top flight. In fact, they secured their Serie A status with six games to spare and finished eleventh on 52 points, making them the best newly promoted side across the top five European divisions.
