Serie A: C1 moves away from Rome

Dominators, the Rossoneri opened the brand by Rebic (76th), who made three attempts before managing to take advantage of a gift from the Roman side Zappacosta.
One minute from the end, the Frenchman Théo Hernandez then obtained a penalty kick, transformed into strength by Calhanoglu (89th).
With this success, the first of the season against a Top 6 team, Milan moved into 7th place and can still believe in the Europa League.
For Roma, however, the dreams of a return to the Champions League are fading. Fifth, Paulo Fonseca’s team is nine points behind Atalanta Bergamo (4th), who beat (2-3) against Udinese.
The evening of Atalanta could have been even more beautiful if Inter Milan (3rd) had not overturned a badly started match on the lawn of Parma (2-1), which had opened the scoring by Gervinho. The Milanese were led to entry in the last 10 minutes and were mostly easily overpowered by their opponent of the day, who had plenty of opportunities to make a difference.

Carried out at halftime of the last quarterfinal between Newcastle and Manchester City, the draw decided that the Red Devils will play Chelsea, while the Gunners will challenge the Citizens, defending champions.
After the loss of their double title of champion Thursday, in favor of Liverpool, following their defeat at Chelsea (2-1), Manchester City reacted well by eliminating Newcastle.
Returning to three lengths from Leicester in the league, in the podium race, the men of Frank Lampard dealt him another blow in morale with this elimination.
Lampard had turned after two consecutive league victories, leaving Olivier Giroud at rest and starting Kurt Zouma for his first minutes since the resumption.
Chelsea gradually took the measure of the match and could have led to a break in a beautiful parade by Kasper Schmeichel on a powerful shot from Christian Pulisic in the area (30th).
Lampard took advantage of the break and the regulation temporarily authorizing 5 changes to make three at the break.
Winning poker since one of the entrants, Ross Barkley, scored the decisive goal on a center of Willian shortly after the hour of play (1-0, 63rd).
If the way of Europe seems blocked for the Gunners on the league side, with nine points behind Wolverhampton, 5th, despite a late match, the latter are only two matches away from Europe via the Cup.
Without Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, left on the bench, nor Matteo Guendouzi, still dismissed by Mikel Arteta, Nicolas Pépé assured the main by transforming a penalty awarded after recourse to VAR (1-0, 25th).
The video assistants also played an important role by rightly refusing two goals to the premises for offside (10th and 58th).
The Blades could have equalized at the start of the second period (55th, 58th). But they had to wait for yet another defensive error this season from the Gunners to get there.
On a long touch, Sead Kolasinac released his teammate Shkodran Mustafi, the ball reaching the attacker David McGoldrick who equalized acrobatically (1-1, 87th).
But the relief from this goal caused a fatal relaxation, since three minutes later, Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos, left free by the defense of Sheffield, sank into the area to deceive closely Henderson (2-1, 90th +1) and allow his team to dream again.
