AC Milan again struggled in a 1-0 win that saw it move three points clear at the top of Serie A on Tuesday, according to AP news.

Olivier Giroud scored the only goal of the match in the 14th minute to help Milan move clear of second-place Napoli, which hosts Bologna on Thursday.

The Rossoneri were still dealing with an injury crisis, but defender Theo Hernández was fit for a place on the bench after recovering from the coronavirus.

Milan was the only team in the top six in Serie A to win over the weekend but only narrowly avoided embarrassment as two late goals helped it beat nine-man Bologna 4-2.

It seemed as if matters had improved when Milan took the lead after Rade Krunić nodded on a corner for Giroud to tap in from a couple of yards. It was the 35-year-old’s fourth goal in his six league matches for Milan.

However, the Rossoneri barely had another sight of a goal in a mediocre match. Torino went closer, with one of its best chances coming in the 76th as Antonio Sanabria ran onto a through ball but Milan goalkeeper Ciprian Tătărușanu managed to parry his effort and Fikayo Tomori cleared the loose ball off the line.
