A late goal from Simon Kjaer secured a valuable away goal and a draw for AC Milan in the first leg of the Europa League match against Manchester United.
It looked like the night’s only goal would eventually come through young winger Amad Diallo as his header caught Fikayo Tomori and Gianluigi Donnarumma in No Man’s Land.
The excellent Simon Kjaer, however, scored with a header from a corner kick in the second minute of added time, giving Milan a well-deserved draw but also a crucial away goal in view of next week’s return.
