Ten-man Milan Back On Top With Win At Benevento

Ten-man Milan Back On Top With Win At Benevento

A goal in each half earned 10man AC Milan a 20 victory at Benevento in Serie A which propelled them back to the top of the standings on Sunday.

BENEVENTO, Italy: A goal in each half earned 10-man AC Milan a 2-0 victory at Benevento in Serie A which propelled them back to the top of the standings on Sunday.

City rivals Inter Milan had thrashed Crotone 6-2 to go top earlier on Sunday, but Milan soon found themselves in front in Campania thanks to Franck Kessie’s 15th-minute penalty.

Milan’s task was made all the more difficult after Sandro Tonali was sent off in the 33rd minute following a VAR review. The referee had initially shown the midfielder a yellow card for a dangerous tackle but changed it to red after consulting the pitch-side monitor.

Rafael Leao made it 2-0 four minutes into the second half, while the hosts missed a penalty.

Milan remain unbeaten and have 37 points from 15 games, one ahead of Inter, while Benevento stay 10th.
