Milan started off the game in great fashion and it was clear they wanted to respond after two consecutive negative results. In the 17th minute, Suso sent a fantastic cross to Cutrone, who was free in the box and had a lot of time to head the ball in and give his team the lead.

However, it did not take much time for Sampdoria to equalize, with Saponara combining brilliantly with Fabio Quagliarella and the former Milan man scoring with a fine effort from distance.

10 minutes later the two players swapped roles, with Saponara sending a great cross into the box to Fabio Quagliarella, who gave Sampdoria the lead with a fantastic volley.

But Milan were not paralyzed and continued looking for the goal. In the 36th minute Cutrone combined well with Gonzalo Higuain and the  latter scored a great goal to equalize at the San Siro.
