A Milan Derby heading to extra time? That’s what we saw Wednesday in the Italian Cup, and Gennaro Gattuso’s AC Milan was the happier for it.

Patrick Cutrone knifed home Suso’s pass in the 104th minute, and Gianluigi Donnarumma made a number of fine saves as AC Milan advanced with a 1-0 quarterfinal win.

The goal meant everything to the soon-to-be 20-year-old, who couldn’t hold in his emotions. Cutrone joined the Milan academy at age 8, so this one’s special for him.

“I can’t believe it because it feels like I was playing with the primavera yesterday, scoring in the derbies and celebrating in the same way. Tonight I do it in front of a full San Siro”

Milan spent a lot this summer and has muddled its way through the Serie A season. Could this win transform their league form, too?
