Milan win Swiss friendly

Milan got back on track with a 3-1 friendly victory away to Swiss side Young Boys on Adil Rami’s debut.

The Rossoneri have been under a great deal of pressure after dismal results, so went to the Stade de Suisse in Bern with a new-look side.

Defender Rami arrived this month on loan from Valencia, though he can’t play in competitive games until January.

Bryan Cristante’s header thumped the woodwork and Young Boys took the lead moments later with Nuzzolo’s fierce volley under the bar.

Cristian Zaccardo was brought down for a penalty which Kaka got wrong, but the Brazilian got the equaliser on the rebound.

It seemed to wake Massimiliano Allegri’s men up and they took control. M’Baye Niang provided the assists for both Riccardo Saponara and Cristante.

Alessandro Matri’s poor form continued, as he hit the woodwork and forced some tough saves.

Young Boys 1-3 Milan

Scorers: Nuzzolo 39 (Y), Kaka 56 (M), Saponara 71 (M), Cristante 74 (M)

Milan: Gabriel (Coppola 63); Zaccardo (Vergara 87), Bonera (Mexes 46), Rami, Emanuelson; Saponara (Rondanini 87), Cristante, Constant; Niang (Molfetta 82), Matri, Kaka (Modic 71)
