Milano (Getano Mocchiaro Report Cards)
Tatarusano 6 – A little busy, nothing Adopo can do.
Kalulu 6 – Right defensive part, he closes as a right back always with good results.
cage 6 – Good performance in the middle of defense consisting of three players. Safe in tackles, good even in aerial play. from 77′ Theo Hernandez 5.5 – Does not affect.
Tomori 6 – certainty regardless of the unit. Good close-up on rare bomb sorties.
Saelemaekers 5.5 – The right-back is an ideal role for a player who arrived in Milan as a full-back and has adapted to good results up front, however, the Belgian struggles to break through, being well contained by the grenadier wingers. from 67′ Leah 5 – Enter to change the game. His performance is deadlocked.
franx 6 – First as the owner of the Belgian, who certainly does not deserve his commitment and determination. He deserves another chance. from 84 ‘ Bin Nasser 5.5 – It gives the order in the median, but it does not move the needle of the scale.
tonal 6.5 – Fits captain’s armband. He is Milan’s beacon, he dictates the times and often has a luminous play. Precious as always even in the containment phase.
Bobega 5.5 – Good at blocking, bad at support, bad at entry. from 77′ Jerrod 5 – Lots of useless heel strikes.
Destination 5.5 – Nothing is said about commitment, with the American often pushing. However, there are many inaccuracies.
Brahim Diaz 5.5 – In support of De Ketelaere, he zips across the field without being able to find his starting spot. Not very subtle in the support phase, he is the first to be sacrificed when Pioli tries to swerve. from 67′ Messias 5.5 – The beginning was promising as he entered and changed the deadlock in the match, forcing Gigi to receive a red card. But he went no further, remaining confined to the right wing.
De Kettler 5.5 – If nothing else, some occasions have been able to create it. Few, but better than some of the releases seen during the season. Better in the first half, almost none in the second half.
Coach Stefano Pioli 4.5 – Milan were unable to exploit the field factor or 50’s numerical superiority. A disappointing performance leads to a double infamy: exit from the Italian Cup after one game and against a team of 10 for a long time.
Turin (Report cards edited by Paolo Laura Lamia)
Milinkovic-Savic 7 – Among the great protagonists of the grenade project. In the first half of the match, he made two excellent saves, lifting the ball that Dest had hit over the crossbar and then blocking De Ketelaere’s shot from the outside. Decisive in many circumstances also in the second half as well as in extra time.
seriously 5.5 – He has featured some good shutdowns, even advancing to midfield when the Bulls try to restart. However, his performance was tarnished by a tackle on Messias which cost him a second yellow card.
Shores 7 – A giant in the middle of the area, on several occasions he stopped opposing strikers from kicking in with accurate defensive shut-downs. Don’t lose focus until the final whistle.
Good morning 6.5 – On the whole, he defends well in his field of competence, pulling off some foul balls and occasionally proposing himself up front.
Single 6.5 – A good game in both stages, given that he alternates the pressure on the right with moments in which he helps more in the defensive stage. from 111 ‘ Baye 6.5 – He repays the coach’s confidence in the best way possible, and Adopo serves the ball up for the winning goal.
Lukic 7 – Illuminate the medium bomb. His best chance is in the first half of the match, when Tatarusano hypnotizes him. He has a lot to do against Tonali while, from the second half onwards, he shows himself more in the attacking phase, starting to excel in a big way.
Hedgehogs 6.5 – Rather shy at first, then grows, especially in the prevention stage. He does a great job until the end in this regard, and comes out at the end of the normal time. since 91 ‘ after 7.5 – Bomb 21 will hardly be forgotten this evening. Enter at the beginning of extra time, gives freshness to the midfielder and, at the end, signs the goal of the round.
Rodriguez 5.5 – On several occasions he tried to squeeze in the left lane, but without creating major problems for the opponents. from 81′ Vojvoda 6 – He substitutes for his partner well, without obvious plays or gross mistakes.
Miranchuk 5.5 – Rather, in the shadows, both in terms of being in the Milan area and in terms of finishing. from 90 + 1′ Section 6.5 – He enters the game well, giving vitality to the Torino attack during extra time.
Vlasic 5.5 – One of the most anticipated players, who struggles to make an impact in the last few metres. Didn’t improve in the second half. from 81′ Linity 6 – He appears in some circumstances in the opponent’s area, making his contribution even in the phase of not being in possession.
Snapria 6 He plays the role of a buoy building banks for his teammates rather than being a solution. At first he put Lukic in front of Tatarusanu, who intercepted his shot. from 71′ Zima 6 – He came to fill the void created by Gigi’s dismissal, and generally gave a tidy performance.
Evan Urick 7.5 – Enterprise da Toro, acquired while suffering from numerical inferiority but also with correct bravado that is rewarded in the end. Perhaps the greatest satisfaction since driving grenades.
