AC Milan beat Alessandria the first leg!

Milan win the first-leg of the TIM Cup semi-finals with Alessandria 1-0.

MILAN – A first-half penalty from Mario Balotelli gave Milan a 1-0 victory over Alessandria on Tuesday night in the first-leg of the TIM Cup semi-finals.

The Italian striker kept ice-cool to send the Grigi goalkeeper the wrong way from the penalty-spot and break the deadlock on 43 minutes after Luca Antonelli had been brought down inside the box by Morero following a mazy-run.

Balotelli was involved again shortly after the restart setting up Keisuke Honda, but the Japanese star had his shot charged down from close range by Sabato.

The Grigi didn’t lose heart though and re-found the kind of defensive solidity that had characterised their opening half an hour performance to whether the storm and frustrate Milan’s attempts to kill-off the contest.

In the closing stages however Milan were unlucky not to add a second as Poli had a goal ruled out for off-side while Niang sprung the offside trap to go clear through on goal only to see his effort crash against the far post.

Forza ACM!
