Franck Kessié scored a penalty with the last kick of the match to rescue a 1-1 draw for title-chasing AC Milan against Udinese in Serie A on Wednesday. Rodrigo Becão looked to have secured Udinese’s first win at Milan in nearly five years before a needless handball from Jens Stryger Larsen.
“It’s two points lost, we wanted to win,” Milan coach Stefano Pioli said. “We needed more pace and quality in one-on-one situations against a team which is good at closing up the spaces. I saw a lot of desire but little clarity … At the end of the day we were rewarded by the desire not to lose.”
It was Milan’s first match without injured forward Zlatan Ibrahimović and the Rossoneri remained second in the standings, three points behind Inter Milan, which visits relegation-threatened Parma on Thursday.
Udinese moved nine points above the relegation zone.
