Minnows Monza stun Milan with two goals in added time

Warren Bondo of AC Monza celebrates with teammates Roberto Gagliardini, Matteo Pessina, Lorenzo Colombo and Armando Izzo after scoring the team's third goal during the Serie A TIM match between AC Monza and AC Milan at U-Power Stadium on February 18, 2024 in Monza, Italy. 

Seven-time European champions AC Milan were shocked by minnows Monza as the hosts scored twice in a frantic finish.

Milan, who had Luka Jovic sent off, fought back from 2-0 down thanks to Olivier Giroud's volley and Christian Pulisic's 88th-minute strike.

But goals in added time from Warren Bondo and Lorenzo Colombo gave Monza their first Serie A win over Milan.

Matteo Pessina opened the scoring with a penalty before Dany Mota made it 2-0 just before half-time.

The shock defeat to the small club on the north-eastern outskirts of Milan means Stefano Pioli's side stay third, two points behind second-placed Juventus and 11 adrift of leaders Inter.

Inter beat Salernitana 4-0 on Friday while Juventus dropped two points in a 2-2 draw at Verona on Saturday.

Elsewhere in Serie A on Sunday there were mixed fortunes for the two Rome sides as Roma won 3-0 at Frosinone but Lazio were beaten 2-1 at home by Bologna.

Milan are next in action on Thursday when they play the second leg of their Europa League knockout play-off against Rennes after a 3-0 win at home in the first leg.

Unless Milan suffer a heavy defeat on Thursday, they will move into the last 16 of the tournament - with Liverpool, West Ham United and Brighton among their potential opponents in the next round.
