AC Milan scored four second half goals to come from behind to defeat Frosinone 2-4 at the Stadio Comunale Matusa. This matchup between AC Milan and Frosinone was the first time these two sides have played against each other in the Serie A. Frosinone would take the lead early on in the match through Daniel Ciofani.
Frosinone drove forward through the Milan defense with much ease when they scored on the 19th minute mark. Federico Dionisi charged forward through the Milan midfield unchallenged and fed the ball for his strike partner Daniel Ciofani to give the hosts the lead, 1-0. The hosts went into the break with the narrow 1-0 lead against the Rossoneri.
After the restart Milan drew level after Japanese International Keisuke Honda threaded a neat pass for Ignazio Abate to power a low shot to put the game at equal terms for the Milanese. The visitors would capitalize on some of Frosinone’s terrible defending. The unmarked Bertolacci flicks a header into the path of Giacomo Bonaventura. Bonaventura lashed an effort towards goal and Colombian stiker Carlos Bacca ran onto the effort to guarantee the goal and the lead for AC Milan.
AC Milan would grab their third goal of the match after 77 minutes when Brazilian defender Alex met Mbaye Niang’s cross inside the Frosinone box to head home the three points for the Rossoneri. Frosinone were able to pull back a goal through Federico Dionisi. Dionisi was able to take advantage of another lapse of concentration by the Milan defense to cut the Rossoneri’s lead, 2-3.
AC Milan’s hardest working player throughout the majority of their season would cap off his evening with Milan’s fourth goal, Giacomo Bonaventura. Bonaventura latched onto a through ball by Ricardo Montolivo before drilling home his fourth Serie A goal. Bonaventura has also notched his sixth assist in the Serie A and is the joint highest leader in assists so far in Italy.
Milan have been unbeaten in their last six competitive matches in Italy and have been on a resurgence since their 1-0 defeat to Juventus on the 21st of November.
