Genoa 0-1 AC Milan: Goals, highlights and report – Serie A 2023/24

Christian Pulisic sends AC Milan to the top of Serie A with a last gasp winner against Genoa at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris on Matchday 8 of the 2023/24 campaign, but makeshift goalkeeper Olivier Giroud is the hero.


AC Milan left it late to leapfrog bitter rivals Inter to the top of Serie A, after substitute Christian Pulisic netted a winner in the dying minutes to give the Rossoneri a 1-0 win over Genoa at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris on Matchday 8.

Coach Stefano Pioli felt confident enough to rest several of his regular starters against the Grifone, but had registered just two shots on target before the American stole all three points just two minutes before the end of normal time.

The last gasp victory means that Milan can now welcome Scudetto rivals Juventus to the Stadio San Siro on Matchday 9 with a five point advantage. After Theo Hernandez collected a fifth booking of the campaign and Mike Maignan was sent-off, though, their suspensions for the clash will force Pioli into some unwanted changes.
