By Chukwuka Joseph (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Theo Hernández’s stoppage-time winner ensured AC Milan ended the year top of Serie A after beating Lazio 3-2 on Wednesday. The Milan players all piled on top of Hernández in joyful celebration after his late winner.
Milan had let slip a two-goal lead and seemed set to head into the winter break behind city rival Inter Milan, which had won 2-1 at Hellas Verona earlier.
The Rossoneri instead go into the festive period a point above Inter and edging closer to ending its 10-year title drought as the last remaining unbeaten team across Europe’s top five leagues. “It’s a very important goal. For the team. I’m happy,” Hernández said. “We fought right until the end and it was worth it.
