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:
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.
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.
