Serie A: AC Milan stunned by last gasp Spezia winner

Spezia's Emmanuel Gyasi scores

AC Milan spurned the chance to go top of Serie A having been beaten 2-1 by Spezia in dramatic fashion, with the visitors to the Stadio San Siro scoring a 96th minute winner.

As a result, Milan are now two points adrift of Inter, but the Rossoneri could have leapfrogged their city rivals with a win and reach the summit of Serie A. Instead, Napoli have moved to within five points of Milan, after they beat Bologna earlier on Monday.

Emmanuel Gyasi was the hero for The Aquilotti as they broke late and he kept his composure to slide the ball past Mike Maignan in stoppage time.

Rafael Leao had opened the scoring for Milan with a delightful lob from the edge of the area on the stroke of half time. The goal came just moments after Theo Hernandez had fired a penalty wide of the target in inexplicable fashion.

Kevin Agudelo was in no mood to see Spezia submit to Milan‘s title challenge as he expertly converted a low cross from the left just after the hour mark to level things up at 1-1.

The midfielder was sent off in his last Serie A game against Verona but made amends for that on Monday.

Milan piled on the pressure and peppered the Spezia goal and they very nearly had a winner of their own in stoppage time.

The referee spotted a foul on the edge of the area and blew for a freekick moments before Junior Messias swept the ball into the top corner.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic thundered the freekick goal-ward only the see the Spezia ‘keeper palm it over the bar.

It is a vital victory for Spezia who continue to fight to stay in the Italian top flight as Milan lose crucial ground in the race for the Scudetto.
