Milan stumbles to goalless draw
Dec 27, 2018-
AC Milan’s push for a top-four finish in Serie A took a hit on Wednesday as Gennaro Gattuso’s side was held to an uneventful 0-0 draw at struggling Frosinone.The seven-time European champions remains in fifth, behind fourth-placed Lazio on goal difference in the race for Champions League qualification. Milan has said it will appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport after UEFA threatened to ban it from European competition for a season if it does not break even by June 2021.
The club won a previous appeal to CAS earlier this year, following a Europa League ban for breaching Financial Fair Play regulations.
But its efforts to secure European football for next season suffered a setback against a resolute Frosinone outfit who almost snatched a dramatic 93rd-minute winner when Camillo Ciano was denied by visiting goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma. Ciano had already seen a goal ruled out by VAR for a foul eight minutes before half-time.
Frosinone remains second-bottom above only winless Chievo, having managed just one victory all season.
