While Empoli lost 3-1 against Milan after the international break, Milan got an impressive win against a Napoli side that had lost before the break. The Rossoneri dominated the game in the first half, but failed to make any of their numerous chances come to fruition. Furthermore, Saelaemaekers, Calabria, and Kjaer all had to leave the pitch injured, making the game goalless at half-time.
Although Milan managed to open up the scoreline late in the game through Ante Rebic, Empoli prevented them from scoring two goals in stoppage time by getting level through a free-kick in the 92nd minute. Milan showed great team spirit to score two goals in stoppage time thanks to Fode Ballo-Toure and Rafael Leao, winning 3-1. On the other hand, Diaz hasn't been particularly helpful for Pioli as he exposed against Empoli. Brahim has had time to prove he belongs in this team, but the time is almost up.
