Piacenza 4 - 2 Milan

Hubner 5, 82 (P), Maresca pen 16 (P), Brocchi pen 29, 91 (M), Marchionni 31 (P)


Piacenza are already relegated, but wanted to give the home fans a good sending off. Dario Hubner broke the deadlock within five minutes with a fine volley from eight yards on Davide Baiocco's centre.

Milan rested almost their entire squad and essentially fielded the youth team in their final Serie A match of the season.

Piacenza doubled their lead soon after from the spot when Stefano dragged back Hubner. Enzo Maresca stepped up to successfully convert the penalty.

The referee also pointed to the spot at the other end of the field when Vittorio Tosto held back Ibrahim Ba by his shirt. Christian Brocchi drilled home to put Milan back in it.

The scoreline lasted for all of 60 seconds before Marco Marchionni rose to nod in a Tosto cross.

Milan's youth team was not up to the task and Hubner scored another low drive on the counter-attack.

Brocchi salvaged a moment of dignity in stoppage time with a wonderful looping effort from the edge of the box that slotted into the top corner.


Piacenza: Guardalben; Gurenko, Cristante, Campagnaro, Tosto; Marchionni (Ferrarese 46), Di Francesco, Maresca, Baiocco; Patrascu (Babatunde 63), Hubner

Milan: Fiori; Helveg, Laursen, Stefani (Del Bello 46), Aubameyang (Pastrello 61); Ba, Redondo, Dalla Bona, Brocchi; Matri (Bortolotto 71), Piccolo
