10 Men Milan Beaten By Lazio

Well it was another negative episode for Milan as for the second time in a row they faces defeat. After being humiliated by Palermo last weekend, this time it's LAzio's turn to put dirt on Milan's face as the Biancoceleste defeated the Italian giants 2-1 after extra time at the quarter final of Copa Italia last night at San Siro, Milan. It was Goran Pandev, who scored the ultimate blow for Milan, on the 93rd minutes.
It was once again a weird match for the Rossoneri, who has to play without lots of their main man such as Pirlo, Gatusso, Pato, Borrielo and Ambrosini, as they was force to left the field empty handed despite not playing that bad. On the contrary Milan could have win the match, if not for some miss chances in the first half and also Emerson's sending off on the second half. Despite the missed chances and the sending off, Milan did manage to score first through Andry Shvechenko's amazing strike, unfortunately just minutes from taking the victory, Favalli's clumsy defending allow Lazio to get level through Zarate's penalty, after Milan's veteran defender committed a foul inside the box. With Shevchenko out of the field, Milan who doesn't have any more option upfront find it hard to hit back at Lazio, specially after the Biancoceleste finally took the lead thrugh Pandev on the extra time.
Commenting about the lose, Milan's coach Ancelotti claimed that the defeat was disappointing but he still sees a positive aspect on the game which is Sheva's goal. "This is not a difficult time for us, It’s a defeat, but it isn’t too painful. We can already get back on track against Catania on Sunday. The important thing tonight was that Shevchenko was able to find the net again," Carletto said.
