Spezia 1-2 AC Milan: Daniel Maldini on target for visitors in narrow win

Last update on.
Three minutes into the second period, Daniel Maldini led AC Milan in front

As Stefano Pioli's side defeated Spezia in Serie A, Daniel Maldini became the third generation to score for AC Milan.

Three minutes into the second period, the 19-year old, the son of Paolo Maldini as well as the grandson of Cesare Maldini, led the visitors to the front.

With ten minutes left, Daniele Verde brought the hosts to level.

Six minutes later, Milan's win was secured by Brahim Diaz with a close finish.

Maldini's goal was 13 years, 179 days after his father Paolo's last league goal and 60 years, 22 days after his grandfather Cesare's last Serie A goal.

Milan is now at the top of the table with the win, one point ahead of Napoli. Napoli can be replaced by Milan if they beat Cagliari at home on Sunday.
