AC Milan secured a 1-0 victory against Fiorentina on Saturday, breaking their four-game winless streak in Serie A. French defender Theo Hernandez scored the decisive first-half penalty during stoppage time, capitalizing on a late challenge from Fabiano Parisi.

Milan's Francesco Camarda made history, debuting at the age of 15 years, eight months, and 16 days as the youngest player in a Serie A match, coming on as a substitute for Luka Jovic. Manager Stefano Pioli praised Camarda's maturity and acknowledged the positive impact of his youthful energy on the team.

Currently standing third in the table with 26 points, Milan is five points behind leaders Inter Milan, while Fiorentina holds the sixth position with 20 points. Pioli highlighted the team's progress after a challenging period, expressing confidence that consistent results will enable them to return to their signature style of play.

Despite the mental strain in the second half, Milan showcased resilience, with goalkeeper Mike Maignan making a crucial stop in stoppage time. Christian Pulisic and Tommaso Pobega had notable attempts, while Fiorentina's Nico Gonzalez threatened with a deflected cross.

Looking ahead, Milan faces Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday and hosts Frosinone in Serie A next Saturday. Pioli remains optimistic about the team's ability to balance results and style of play in the upcoming fixtures.
