Cutrone tomb to Rome in 95 '. 'Double' of the VAR

2018 Aug 31

This Milan-Rome was the first 'American derby' of Italian football: the set that Elliott fund controls since this summer, before the Pallotta team. And, like an American action movie, he was very entertaining and full of twists in the plot. The last one arrived on the horn, with a Cutrone goal, perhaps the least expected name, which marked the decisive goal for the first triumph of the new Milan.Di Francesco surprised, returning to propose the 3-4-1-2 with which he knocked down Barcelona in the last Champions League. It was the premiere of the Spanish Marcano, next to Manolas and Fazio, with Pastore behind the points Schick and Dzeko. The plan went wrong: in the first half, quite decaffeinated, the Romanists never created danger and the Rossoneri, however, if they did, although at times.The Milan, which opened with enthusiasm before their tifosi, left home with Higuain, the only starter among the new signings. Before the confrontation Kaka greeted the fans and then sat next to Leonardo: he worked with him and Maldini to enter, little by little, in his new life as a manager. The night was resounding for his team: a full San Siro appreciated an orderly and aggressive team as Gattuso likes, who went ahead before the break. Rodriguez got rid of Fazio and focused for Kessié who, forgotten by Kolarov, pushed between sticks.Di Francesco, after the failed experiment, removed Marcano replacing him with El Sharaawy and moving to 4-2-3-1. Roma, with the change, was more alive and in the end managed to tie with one of their best weapons, the balls stopped. After a corner and an attempt to clear Calabria, Fazio beat Donnarumma with a right cross.Then, the protagonist was a VAR more and more in shape. Two minutes from time, Higuain had managed the 2-1 surprisingly high behind his opponents and dribbling to Olsen, but started the play with one foot offside. The new technologies introduced this year for these situations seem infallible and their first celebration in the Meazza was in vain.The same thing happened to Nzonzi. In the 80 'the Frenchman, after another corner, beat Donnarumma with a stretched, but before doing so he adjusted the ball with one arm. The referee, Marco Guida, needed to see the images for less than 10 seconds to decide: both canceled and ... no protest.The Milanese ended the game pushing: Gattuso took out Castillejo in the 82nd minute and the Spaniard had a good opening, setting up a counterattack and forcing De Rossi (who was reprimanded) to stop him with the bad. Moments later came Cutrone, and the triumph was his signature: Nzonzi lost a horrible ball that Higuain, with a genius, transformed into a carpet to the goal for the striker, who at 20 years and has 19 Rossoner goals. It was 95 'and there the milanista party was unleashed; for Rome, on the other hand, another gray performance.
