Fernando Torres wasn’t able to make his debut for AC Milan last night as he sprained his ankle the night before, which is probably for the best, as this was a nine goal thriller!
The goal below was the second by new signing Jeremy Menez with this lovely back heel into the net after his first from the penalty spot.
AC Milan went on to win the game 5 – 4 with both teams having players sent off during the game.
Giacomo Bonaventura put Milan in front on 25 minutes before Antonio Cassano equalised two minutes later. Keisuke Honda made it two one to the visitors before Jeremy Menez made it 1 – 3 from the penalty spot. Felipe then scored for the home side before Nigel De Jong restored the two goal lead for the visitors. The game wasn’t finished there as Alessandro Lucarelli snatched one back for Parma before the lovely back heeled goal by Jeremy Menez sealed Parma’s fate – but not before an own goal by Mattia De Sciglio in the 89th minute gave the visiting fans something to think about in the last few minutes.
