Milan does not go beyond a goalless draw with Cagliari, already sure of salvation, and wastes the first opportunity to lock down qualification for the Champions League. The San Siro match ends 0-0, a result that is not enough for the Rossoneri to celebrate their return to the top teams in Europe one day early. Pioli’s team plays very tight in the first half and the Sardinians’ goalkeeper, Cragno, has to commit only to a violent right-foot from outside Saelemaekers shortly after the quarter of an hour of play. At the start of the recovery, it is Saelemaekers who makes way for Leao. Milan increases the offensive potential but it is Cagliari that creates the greatest dangers with the gore of Pavoletti in the 54th minute and Godin in the 65th minute. Only two miracles by Donnarumma prevented the Rossoneri from getting worse and trying to change pace in the final twenty minutes. At 72 ‘it is the post that denies Calhanoglu the goal. The last chance for Milan comes in full recovery, but Godin blocks Castillejo’s conclusion and the result does not change. Now Milan will play everything in the difficult trip to Atalanta, already sure of a place in the Champions League next season. The situation sees Napoli and Milan paired at 76 points and +1 on Juventus, currently fifth, who will visit Bologna on Sunday. Napoli, on the other hand, will play its chances at home against Verona.
