MILAN — New AC Milan coach Stefano Pioli earned his first win with the club as the Rossoneri beat SPAL 1-0 in Serie A on Thursday.

Suso came off the bench to score with a free kick shortly after the hour mark, ending a scoreless streak stretching back to last season.

Milan’s fourth win in 10 matches moved the Rossoneri up to 10th place while SPAL remained in 19th place.

Samu Castillejo also hit the crossbar for Milan early on.

Suso, who had been heavily criticized for his performances this season, scored six minutes after coming on for Castillejo.

The Spaniard’s free kick spun over SPAL’s wall then dipped down in under the bar.

Suso’s previous goal came on May 19.

Paris Saint-Germain absolutely smashed Bordeaux on Saturday, its 6-2 win made even better by a wonderful free kick from big buy Neymar.

The Brazilian put a vicious curve on his fifth minute free kick, the first of his two goals as PSG sauntered off to a 3-0 lead.

Neymar, for those wondering, did take the honors when a penalty was given to Les Parisiens. Edinson Cavani won’t be too bothered, having scored himself, while Kylian Mbappe, Thomas Meunier, and Julian Draxler also scored.

Yep, all those guys are on the same team. Money is important.

Here’s Neymar’s wonderful goal. The behind-the-net angle is delightful.
