Divock Origi immediately showed on his basic debut why AC Milan brought him to Italy this summer. With an assist and a nice goal, our compatriot had a large share in the 3-1 victory of the Italian champion. Charles De Ketelaere could not be noticed as a substitute.
He had to wait a long time, but Divock Origi will soon make his basic debut at AC Milan. Origi, who came over from Liverpool last summer, was not allowed to make too many minutes for the Italian national champion, partly due to injuries. In recent weeks, Origi mainly had to do with short substitutes, but because coach Pioli wants to give Olivier Giroud some rest, the striker appeared at the kick-off against Monza. Charles De Ketelaere and Aster Vranckx, those other Belgians, start on the bench. Alexis Saelemaekers is still out with an injury.
Origi showed above all for will and enthusiasm, but the striker got real opportunities. When Brahim Diaz, Charles De Ketelaere’s competitor, went for a walk, Origi kept the defense going, opening the sea. Diaz kept calm and scored the opening goal.
Five minutes before time it was Origi again who showed himself. The Red Devil kept a good overview on the right wing and found Brahim Diaz in the penalty area. He cleverly put his closest assailant into the wind and decided over the corner. Goalkeeper Di Gregorio had no recourse to the Spaniard’s bang.
Origi scores after the break
After the break, Milan continued to play his beloved game. After fifty minutes it was up to Charles De Ketelaere to make his comeback after his injury. Diaz was allowed to go to the side.
While Milan had resigned themselves to a 2-0 win, Divock Origi still wanted to make something more of it. Our compatriot got the ball just outside the penalty area and shot the goalkeeper. Scoring and letting score, then you can talk about a successful basic debut. Still, Origi didn’t seem completely happy with his goal. The striker appeared to have hurt himself with the goal. Fifteen minutes before the end, Origi also went to the can, Aster Vranckx was his replacement.
Ranocchia saved the honor with a nice free kick, after which Leão put the 1-4 final figures on the board. Thanks to the win, Milan jumps to the first place in Serie A for the time being with as many points as Napoli, which still has one game credit.
