Theo Hernández collects Chucky Lozano's soul after throw-in scuffle

Ismaël Bennacer got a lot of high-fives after scoring the only goal in AC Milan's crucial 1-0 win over Napoli in the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinals. 

However, if we have to choose a man of the match, that recognition should be in the hands of left fullback Theo Hernandez. The dyed-blond Frenchman probably didn't lead any stat some people care about nowadays, but he fueled his teammates from an emotional point of view.

Especially after seeing the aggressive tête-à-tête he starred alongside Mexican Hirving Lozano during a trivial throw-in.

En la previa del Clásico Nacional se habló mucho de lo parejo que sería el partido, que con el Rebaño en el cuarto puesto y Las Águilas en el quinto, además del historial reciente, todo iba a estar muy apretado.

Sin embargo, en la cancha solo hubo uno: el América venció 4-2, pero el marcador pudo haber sido aún más abultado.
