Stefano Pioli feels Milan went into trouble as they fell to a 3-0 loss against Lille in the Europa League.

Stefano Pioli’s men suffered their first defeat of 2020-21 in a shocking battle against Lille.

AC Milan’

s unbeaten start to the season has finally come to an end. Millan had passed his last 11 games without defeat in all matches, recording a 10-time win and only one draw. However, the Rossoneri slipped down by French visitors Lille on Thursday. "We were up against a strong team and we made life difficult for ourselves," Pioli said in an interview and explained: "We hadn't started badly, but I thought we'd be more dangerous in attack and we weren't able to create enough chances.

Yusuf Yazici scored three goals against Milan. Yazici netted three goals in a single game, reminding the reminiscence of Rivaldo for Barcelona in October 2000. The 23-year-old became the first player in the history of UEFA's European club competitions to figure two away hat-tricks in the same season. He also obtained a treble against Sparta Prague in October. Taking about the game, Pioli commented "Aside from the penalty, I felt we actually did well in the first half, but our movements and finishing in the final third weren't at the usual level.
