The Frenchman’s header at the Allianz Stadium ensured qualification for the Rossoneri. The ball will go to a supporter in possession of digital tokens
Davide Calabria’s brushed cross, Federico Gatti’s generous marking and Olivier Giroud’s usual aerial domination: Wojcjech Szczesny caught off guard and many greetings to Juventus. This is how Milan conquered the Allianz Stadium two Sundays ago, not only enjoying a victory at home to their historic black and white rivals, but also entering their name in the group stage urn of the next Champions League with consequent Uefa revenues of which the top club certainly can not do without. The instant plasticity of the Frenchman intent on goring the Lady on the net in front of the Turin public will therefore remain a fundamental memory for the near future of the Devil, but there is a detail of that photograph which for some will take on an even greater value.
It is obviously the goal ball which, as we are now accustomed to seeing, immediately ended up in a Socios-branded bag on the sidelines as the first step of an already known path: the integration of a chip that will allow the goal to be reviewed bringing a smartphone closer, the initiative dedicated to fan token holders to assign it to a fan and finally the place on the bulletin board at the home of the lucky winner, ready to be shown to friends and relatives. It is also curious that this competition linked to Milan’s digital tokens has brought good luck to the Rossoneri club: in fact, in recent days the ball from Alexis Saelemaekers’ goal was redeemed, which on 29 April had earned the equalizer in the 97th minute against Roma at the Olympic. Without the flashes of the Belgian and the French, there would have been more sweat to get to fourth place.
