AC Milan came from two goals down to salvage a 2-2 draw against US Lecce, as a game of two halves saw a second-half comeback from the Rossoneri extend their unbeaten H2H run to nine.
They deservedly doubled their lead over the stunned champions midway through the half, after a short corner was played to Morten Hjulmand, who floated a cross into the box which was met by a powerful header from Federico Baschirotto into the net.
It wasn’t until late on in the half that the visitors created a significant chance, as Olivier Giroud used his aerial ability to try and nod the ball in, only for Wladimiro Falcone to save it and cap off a brilliant opening 45 minutes for Lecce.
In response, Stefano Pioli made a double-change at the beginning of the second half, and whilst the visitors certainly looked a much better team in the second period, they struggled in the final third.
The deficit now halved, Milan suddenly looked like they had a title to defend, and captain Calabria restored parity with 20 minutes to go, nodding the ball in after being teed up superbly by Giroud, with the goal surviving a VAR review for offside.
The draw leaves them in 12th place, whilst Milan remain second, just a point better off than Juventus.
