    AC Milan, missing forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic with a bout of flu, were held 1-1 at home by Verona as Daniel Maldini, the son of club legend Paolo Maldini, made his Rossoneri debut.

    Davide Faraoni volleyed in Mattia Zaccagni‘s cross at the far post to give Verona a 13th minute lead at San Siro before Hakan Calhanoglu levelled with a deflected free kick just before the half hour.

    Matteo Pessina and Zaccagni both hit the woodwork for Verona after half-time before the visitors were reduced to 10 men with a straight red card for Sofyan Amrabat for a dangerous tackle.

    Samu Castillejo then hit the post for Milan in stoppage time as they chased a winner following the 90th-minute introduction of Maldini, an 18-year-old attacking midfielder.

    “The debut was a goal that I had set,” Daniel, who wore the No. 98 shirt, told Milan’s TV channel. “Now let’s hope we can continue it.”

    Born in 2001, Daniel became the first player born in his millennium to play in the top division for Milan.

    Paolo’s 647 games for Milan remains a Serie A record. The former left-back, who is now technical director at AC Milan, won the Scudetto seven times and the Champions League on five occasions.

    Milan stayed eighth following the draw.
