I had been waiting that for a very long time.I have been away from Italy for over 8 years and have been waiting so keenly to see AC Milan coming to whatever country I might have been to. It finally happened on last 21 November when the Rossoneri played at the Constant Stock Stadium in Brussels against Anderlecht. I had great tickets for which I have to thank one of my dearest friends from my home village, Masa. By the way, you should listen to his music, he’s a terrific guy!
The first half was quite boring with Anderlecht having 2 clear opportunities to score while AC recorded most ball possession but with no real dangers to Anderlecht’s defense. The second half was a completely different story. Young talent El Sharaawi scores after 100 seconds. After that Mexes will score the most spectacular goals of this year’s competition and probably the best goal of his career. A bycicle kick out of the box that goes straight into the “sette” leaving Silvio Proto astonished.
The game re-opened after De Sutter set the score to 1-2 with the Belgians down one man following Nuytinck’s red card. The Bruxellois needed a win to keep hoping for qualification and gave it all. This created more spaces for some very spectacular 10 minutes were newly entered Pato scored an easy 1 -3 at the 91st minute.
Thanks AC for the show!
