AC Milan needed a late strike from Ghanaian star Sulley Muntari to steal a point from their clash with Torino which ended 2-2 in the Italian Serie A on Saturday night.
The 28-year-old scored three minutes from time with a magical drive to give hope to the Rossoneris before Mario Balotelli converted a stoppage-time penalty to snatch a share of the spoils for visitors.
Torino raced into a 2-0 in the opening 20 minutes of the second-half and bossed the entire game but Milan came strongly into the game in the last ten minutes to split the points.
Muntari’s initial shot didn’t appear threatening, but ended up trickling into the back of the net. There was some commotion from Torino players thinking that Balotelli was offside and intefered with the play, but the referee waved away the protests and awarded the goal.
With less than two minutes remaining in stoppage time, the Rossoneri won a penalty thanks to Andrea Poli drawing a foul committed by Giovanni Pasquale. Balotelli scored from the spot to level the match.
Kaka marked his return for Milan, playing 70 minutes for the Rossoneris.
