AC Milan, with a goal from Saelemaekers in extra time, defeat Genoa from Vanheusden

AC Milan had to wait for extra time to get rid of Genoa (3-1 ap) Thursday night in the round of 16 of the Italian Cup. Got up to the game in the 80th, Alexis Saelemaekers sealed the outcome of the match by scoring the third and last goal of his own. Zinho Vanheusden he played the 120 minutes in the Genoese rearguard.

Disproportionate on paper, this duel pitted the second to the penultimate in Serie A. However, it was Vanheusden’s teammates who took the advantage quite early in the game thanks to a realization by defender Léo Ostigard (17th, 0 -1). A lead that would last until a quarter of an hour from the end, a moment chosen by Olivier Giroud to restore equality (75th, 1-1). The score did not change and the two teams went into extra time.

The difference then came from the bench when Rafael Leao (102nd) and Saelemaekers (112th), ridden in part race, scored in favor of the formation of Stefano Pioli.

In the Qatari championship, Toby Alderweireld and Al-Duhail retained the lead after a 2-4 victory at Al-Gharafa. Junior Edmilson, former Standard, scored and provided an assist for the winners. After 14 days, Al-Duhail has 32 points, one more than Al-Sadd, three games behind.
