AC Milan Keeps Champions League Hopes Alive with 2-1 Victory

Giroud Nets Winner in Second Half

Paris, France – AC Milan kept their Champions League hopes alive with a thrilling 2-1 comeback win over Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) at the Parc des Princes on Tuesday.

The French forward, Olivier Giroud, netted the winning goal from Theo Hernandez's cross five minutes into the second half. The goal came after PSG had taken the lead through Kylian Mbappe in the first half.

Giroud's goal was a testament to his aerial prowess and ability to find the back of the net in crucial moments. The 36-year-old striker has been in excellent form for Milan this season, scoring 12 goals in all competitions.

ESPN analyst Craig Burley praised Giroud's performance, saying, “He's a classic number nine. He's not the quickest, but he's got great movement and he's always dangerous in the box.” Burley also highlighted the importance of Giroud's goal, saying, “That goal was massive for Milan. It gave them the belief that they could get something from the game.”

The win moves Milan up to second place in Group E, one point behind PSG. With two games remaining, Milan's hopes of reaching the knockout stages are now in their own hands.
