AC Milan – AS Roma 3-3
Milan, which won all matches this season, took the lead against Roma within two minutes. Rafael Leao put the ball perfectly behind the Roman defense and Zlatan only had to tap in. Edin Dzeko quickly equalized after a goalkeeper error by reserve goalkeeper Ciprian Tatarusanu.
In the second half, Milan took the lead again. Rick Karsdorp, who had a starting place, was trumped on the left flank and Alexis Saelemakers shot in the 2-1 a few seconds later. After an easily given penalty, Roma came alongside again. The referee was on his hips and a few minutes later also put the ball on the spot for Milan, after which Zlatan fired in his second.
Zlatan was well on his way to becoming the match winner, but the Swede did not look good at Marash Kumbulla’s 3-3. He wanted to clear the ball with a karate kick, but put Kumballa in position. He shot in the equalizer.
Burnley – Tottenham 0-1
Tottenham Hotspur got through the eye of a needle against Burnley on Monday. Only late in the match did the Londoners secure the victory: 0-1. Low-ranked Burnley was not going to give Tottenham the points as a gift and defended itself bravely.
Burnley was even close to the opening goal in the second half, but James Tarkowski’s bet was taken off the line by Harry Kane. Moments later, the same Kane prepared Heung-Min Son’s winning goal. Kane headed through a corner and Son came in from close range: 0-1.
Son’s goal turned out to be enough for Tottenham to win. José Mourinho’s team is fifth in the Premier League and will play at home against Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday.
