AC Milan failing to defeat the “Giants” in San Siro. Yep. Milan again losing against Jvuentus proving to be a mission impossible. Juventus rocking big time in Serie A having a wide advantage of +34 points over Milan. On top of that, Milan not having an ideal season while Juventus are on a “solo flight” to collect the third Scudetto unless Roma speed up the race. Juventus reaching now 69 points. AC Milan went down from the 9th to the 10th position.
Juventus testing AC Milan in the 16th minute with forward Carlos Tevez delivering a left footed shot finding goalkeeper Christian Abbiati alert and saving in the center! The headed assist by forward Fernando Llorente.
A great save by goalkeeper Abbiati in the 19th minute. Juventus seeming determined to show a lesson to the Rossoneri. It is again an assist by Llorente this time to defender Stephan Lichtsteiner delivering a right footed shot saved by Abbiati in the bottom right corner.
Wow, what a double save!!! AC Milan closer to the goal with a spectacular Kaka’ challenging Juventus goalkeeper Gigi Buffon who saves with his right footed shot. Yet, the ball continuing in the area and it is miraculously saved by defender Leonardo Bonucci also with his foot conceding the corner. Milan fans cannot believe it!!! This would be one of the best moves. Great combo between Kaka’ and Adel Taarabt who gave him the assist.
In the 40th minute the assist by AC Milan defender Ignazio Abate to forward Giampaolo Pazzini. Buffon saving the left footed shot in the center!
And another incredible save by Juventus! In the 42nd minute Buffon saving by punching the ball away, still in the area Kaka’ attemps to score but the ball goes too high!!!!!
And there you seeee GOOOALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL…. It is Juventus to open the score in the 44th minute in an action started by forward Carlos Tevez passing to Lichtsteiner who passes to forward Fernando Llorente defeating AC Milan goalkeeper Abbiati with a right footed shot in the bottom left corner. Nothing to do for Milan defender Abate who attempted to clear. Immediate celebration by Juventus coach Antonio Conte raising his hands. This is the 11th goal this season for Llorente.

Nothing to do for Milan attempting to score….
AC Milan with a forced substitution in the 53rd minute as midfielder Andrea Poli cannot continue and is replaced by forward Riccardo Saponara.
Juventus scoring a powerful mega goal by forward Carlos Tevez! A magnificent right footed shot from a distance hitting the bar and then going inside the net! Spectacular goal while he runs to celebrate. The assist made by the ex Milan player Andrea Pirlo.
