The Rossoneri Primavera shone brightly once again on a cloudy day in Milan. Our lads have now won three league games on the spin in a richly-deserved victory that never really looked in doubt, in spite of the odd risky error. Traorè bagged a brace and also forced the own goal that opened the scoring after just 22 seconds; Nasti scored the final goal from the penalty spot. And so, after beating SPAL and Sampdoria, Coach Giunti's boys have recorded a third consecutive win and have 17 points in the table - just two away from the playoff spots. New scenarios, then, while keeping their heads firmly on the positive juncture and on the next challenge against Bologna, scheduled for Wednesday at 14:30 CET.

AC Milan got off to a lightning-fast start as they got their noses in front after just 22 seconds; Traorè carried it into the box and his cross took a while deflection off Scipione to put the Rossoneri 1-0 up. Our boys didn't let up and it took just three minutes for them to double their lead. Nasti set off on the counter and was one-on-one with the keeper and unselfishly laid it off for Traorè to make it 2-0. After a period of game management, the Rossoneri went close to a third through a well-struck effort from Kerkez, which flashed just wide on Lucatelli's left-hand upright. An error at the back allowed Pescara to halve the deficit through Blanuta (42'). It took just one minute for Traorè - the absolute star of the first half - to restore the two-goal lead; Gala with the assist and Chaka scoring with his left - 3-1. The guests went down to ten men at the start of the second half after Sayari was shown a straight red for a foul on Gala. Despite being a man down, the Biancazzurri pulled one back in the 67th minute through Blanuta again as he latched onto the long ball and slotted it past Jungdal. This time around as well, Giunti's boys managed to restore the two-goal lead: in the 70th minute, Nasti was brought down in the box by Lucatelli and stepped up to convert the penalty. A cool spot-kick and it ended 4-2.
