Emmanuel Gyasi scored a stunning 96th-minute winner as relegation battling Spezia beat AC Milan 2-1 at San Siro on Monday to put a dent in the home side’s Serie A title hopes.

In-form Milan winger Rafael Leao put his side in front at the end of the first half after Theo Hernandez missed a penalty, but the visitors struck back through substitute Kevin Agudelo.

Junior Messias thought he had won it for the hosts when he curled home in stoppage time, but the referee’s whistle had already sounded for an earlier foul, and Spezia then hit on the break to win it at the death.
