Lapadula Hands AC Milan The Win Over Crotone.
Gianluca Lapadula’s 4th goal in 4 matches lifts AC Milan to a 2-1 win.
AC Milan have needed a late goal from Gianluca Lapadula to beat bottom club Crotone who have won only one match out of 15 in their debut season in Serie A, 2-1 in Serie A after M’Baye Niang had missed a penalty earlier.
Filling in for the injured Carlos Bacca, the former lazio man earned a penalty and scored a late winner over the visitors.
It was Lapadula’s fourth goal in four matches — the first four of the Serie A career of a 26-year-old considered a late bloomer.
Diego Falcinelli had put Crotone ahead midway through the first half and Mario Pasalic equalized for Milan before the break.
This win puts Milan second place on the log and just four points behind league leaders Juventus.
