According to Olivier Giroud, Inter Milan’s defeat of Bologna became a motivation for AC Milan to embrace the Scudetto. Now, their fate is in their own hands.
Olivier Giroud admits AC Milan is getting excited after Inter Milan‘s defeat. Milan is now in full control of the Scudetto competition.
The Rossoneri benefited after Inter’s surprise loss at Bologna 1-2. The defeat keeps Milan’s throne safe with a two-point advantage over their city rivals.
Milan will try to defend Capolista when they host Fiorentina at the San Siro on Sunday (1/5/2022) night WIB. Stefano Pioli’s team must maximize this opportunity by taking full points.
However, La Viola is a bit tricky for AC Milan. In the last five meetings between the two clubs, Milan have only won twice and have lost twice and drawn once. On the other hand, Milan have only won once in their last three home matches against Fiorentina.
Giroud revealed that Milan were motivated after Inter lost to Bologna. Now Milan must be fully concentrated to win the next match.
“I think we have everything to win,” Giroud told Sport Mediaset. “We can’t hide and we are very focused on Sunday’s game against Fiorentina.”
Ivan Perisic’s early goal was met by Marko Arnautovic’s header, then late in the match Ionut Radu made a blunder from a throw-in which allowed Nicola Sansone to capitalize on the mistake from one meter.
