The match's climax came in the 88th minute when Noah Okafor scored the decisive goal for AC Milan from 16 yards out, following a remarkable double save by Lazio's goalkeeper Ivan Provedel.

In a tumultuous added time, Lazio's Adam Marusic and Matteo Guendouzi were expelled with direct red cards. Marusic was dismissed for vehemently protesting a referee's decision, while Guendouzi was ejected for pushing Pulisic to the ground in a moment of frustration, after being fouled by the former Chelsea forward. This left Lazio with just eight players as the game concluded.

The encounter was marked by intense physical play, with six Milan players and three additional Lazio players receiving yellow cards.

Following this match, AC Milan occupies third place in the league, trailing the leader Inter Milan by 13 points. Lazio, facing a crucial Champions League match against Bayern Munich on Tuesday, finds itself in ninth position.
