Milan improved their numbers in the preseason. Of their two wins and one loss during the preparation period, they now won again, and this time against Olympique de Marseille , whom they beat 2–0, at the Stade Vélodrome.
The meeting had a time for each one, in terms of possession of the ball. And the first, was under the seal of the Rossonero, who gave perfect use to the ball for the opening of the account. At 11 minutes, after a good achievement of vertical passes, Junior Messias cut from the right to the inside to finish off placed.
With control of the game and the score in their favour, Stefano Pioli’s men went for more and scored the second before half an hour. From a low delivery by the Brazilian, who scored the goal, Olivier Giroud shot with first intention, near the point of the penalty, to the left corner.
Already in the complement, the roles were changed slightly, since the Focenses disputed the ball with the visit. In this task, they increased possession and got close to Mike Maignan’s goal on isolated occasions and even forced him to respond in a dangerous situation.
However, despite the advances of the French cadre, the Italians, who hardly came close, saw the story concluded early. It is that, in the last section, Souleymane Touré saw the red in the premises.
In this way, Milan remains positive ahead of the start of Serie A and will seek to sustain it in the last game before its debut in the tournament, which will be next Saturday, against Vicenza. For Marseille, the next thing on the calendar is his presentation in Ligue 1, against Reims.
