Milan Atalanta: Controversy at San Siro over penalty awarded to Dea

Controversy has shrouded San Siro during the Coppa Italia match between AC Milan and Atalanta, following an incident in the first half.

Aleksy Miranchuk broke away from Spanish wingback, Jimenez, and appeared to be brought down, thus prompting referee Di Bello to award a penalty. However, in a replay, it appears that Miranchuk, the technically gifted playmaker born in 2005, made contact with the ball prior to the challenge from the opposition player.

This decision has stoked tensions further following an earlier denied penalty kick that had irked Atalanta coach Gasperini. More details will follow as we revisit this contentious situation.
