AC Milan in their resilience came all out and opened the scoring in the first 10 minutes after Hakan Calhanoglu swung in the corner from the left to be converted by Ante Rebic. It took the league leaders just 7 minutes to extend their as VAR checked for a potentially dangerous play against Ante Rebic the goal scorer which was adjudged a penalty.
