With the result, Andrea Pirlos Juventus has moved up to fourth place in Serie A with 30 points in 15 games

Stefano Pioli’s team remains leaders with 37 points, one ahead of second-placed Inter Milan, who lost to Sampdoria on Wednesday

Milan’s coach Pioli had to play directly against Calabria in midfield after Rade Krunic and Ante Rebic were excluded on match day after positive COVID-19 tests, resulting in an absence list with Sandro Tonali, Ismael Bennacer, Alexis Saelemaekers and Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Juventus had problems of their own, Juan Cuadrado and Alex Sandro were isolated and Alvaro Morata injured, but the selection problems did not affect the quality of an action-packed opening

“It’s been a long time since we had the ugly feeling of defeat,” Pioli told Sky Italia

“I patted the players on the back, they deserve it. You shouldn’t regret it after a game like this, you should hold your head up”

Pirlo, looking to lead Juve to the league title for the tenth consecutive year in his first season as manager, was encouraged by what he saw of his players

“We didn’t look at the results of the other teams above us, we just focused on what we had to do,” he said

“Tonight it was especially important to look for that spirit, the spirit of a team that wants to command us to come to such an important pitch against the team that is at the top of the league and playing our own game””
