Milan-Roma ratings: Leao MVP, brilliant Dzeko

Rafael Leao and Zlatan Ibrahimovic were the MVPs for Milan this evening with Edin Dzeko who was Roma’s best. Check out the player ratings:

Milan

Tatarusanu 4.5 – He immediately loses confidence with a huge mistake that allows Edin Dzeko to score the equalizer.  

Calabria 6 – Very careful, doesn’t push forward.

Kjaer 6.5 - Hits the post in the first half, solid-rock at the back.

Romagnoli 5.5 – Leaves Dzeko alone when the Bosnian scores in the first half. Struggles a little bit for the remainder of the game.

Theo Hernandez 5.5 – Shows some fatigue.

Kessie 6.5 – Always in the right place at the right time. Came close to scoring the fourth.

Bennacer 5.5 – Overall, not quite effective, but was that one a foul?

Saelemaekers7 – Scores the second one for the Rossoneri. Sprints back to help the team when needed. (Krunic 72 5.5)

Calhanoglu 6 – Recovers in time for the game and plays for 90 minutes. Some brilliant touches and crosses.

Leao 7.5 – One assist for Ibra and one for Saelemaekers. Difference maker. (Castillejo 72 5.5 – Not a big impact.)

Ibrahimovic 7.5 – The usual Ibra, opens the account early and drags the team for the whole game scoring one more from the spot-kick.

Pioli 6.5 – Can have regrets as Milan found themselves ahead three times. Remains the table leader.

Roma

Mirante 6.5 – Crucial saves in the first half, can’t do much to deny Ibra and Saelemaekers.

Ibanez 5.5 – Roma struggle defensively on his side but it’s not only his fault.

Mancini 5.5 – First player to begin Roma’s attacking action, tries to limit Ibra as much as he can. The penalty is a harsh decision.

Kumbulla 6.5 – Doesn’t notice Ibra moving behind his shoulders when the Swede scores the first goal but he steers into the net a late equalizer.

Karsdorp 5 – Too easy for Leao to dribble him and offer Saelemaekersa perfect assist. (B. Peres 66 5.5 – Too soft.)

Veretout 6.5 – Solid game, scores from the spot. (Villar 86 ng)

Pellegrini 6.5 - Delivers the assist for Dzeko. Provides quantity and quality. (Cristante 76 6 – Gives an extra boost to Roma’s midfield.)

Spinazzola 5.5 - Not easy to find spaces this time.

Pedro 6 – Earns a penalty, somehow he always creates troubles.

Mkhitaryan 5 – Too slow. Fails to impress.

Dzeko 6.5 – Scores the first equalizer, battles it out with Kjaer and Romagnoli.

Fonseca 7 – Defensive organization on set pieces is a serious concern. Smalling would have been helpful to control Ibra.
