Watch: Donnarumma's heroics save Milan in narrow win over Torino

Share This

AC Milan‘s teenage shot-stopping talent Gianluigi Donnarumma and striker Carlos Bacca each played hero Sunday against Torino, as the angular keeper’s injury-time penalty save on Andrea Belotti was the difference in a 3-2 victory.

Bacca’s third goal of the match, a 60th-minute penalty, appeared to send the Rossoneri on their way with a commanding 3-1 advantage, only for Daniele Baselli to narrow that lead to one in the first minute of injury time.

A potential late meltdown edged closer to fruition when Milan’s Gabriel Paletta brought down Belotti in the area with just seconds to go, only for Donnarumma to save the day courtesy of a diving stop.

Not a bad start for Milan, winning in Vincenzo Montella’s managerial debut, while last season’s gaffer, Sinisa Mihajlovic, looked on from the Torino touchline in bewilderment ahead of what could be a challenging season for Il Toro.
