The game between AC Milan and Spezia, which took place last night at San Siro, certainly had a remarkable ending as the visitors scored in the 96th minute. What happened just before, however, stole the headlines.

Junior Messias had seemingly given Milan the lead in the 92nd minute, making the most of a loose ball. However, just before, the referee blew his whistle and awarded the Rossoneri a free-kick for a foul on Ante Rebic.

The decision obviously angered Milan and the players on the pitch, but also the fans. This was revealed in the report of the Sporting Judge, who handed the Rossoneri a €3K because a bottle was thrown onto the pitch.

“Fine of €3,000.00: to Soc. AC MILAN because its supporters, at the 48th minute of the second half, launched a plastic bottle onto the playing field,” the statement read (via Calciomercato.com).

You could argue that it’s a tough decision given the reason behind the anger, but the Sporting Judge has strict regulations to follow. Hopefully, we won’t see any more huge errors during Milan’s games this season.
