Milan maintain their unbeaten streak after securing a place in the next round of the Europa League by beating Austria Wien 5-1 at the San Siro.

Starting XI

Gianluigi Donnarumma (6): Not exacty his best game, made some minor mistakes that cost the team a goal in the first half. However, there is no denying his capacity to keep his team safe when they need him most.
Mateo Musacchio (6): As always, he was calm, concentrated and efficient in the defensive phase and showed great physicality.
Leonardo Bonucci (6): Responsible for the first goal conceded but was never out of the game, reacted well by not allowing any other mistakes and despite a late injury, he always gave his best.
Cristian Zapata (6): On par with the rest of the defense, his serenity kept the opponents in check and did not allow any space.
Fabio Borini (7.5): His determination and persistence inspired his teammates in many ways, he assisted the third goal of the game but was also very efficient defensively.
Franck Kessie (5.5): Probably the weakest link in the midfield, between unnecessary shots and misplaced passes, he struggled to find his rythm tonight.
Lucas Biglia (6): Master in the midfield, he was a real architect, even though it was not the best he can offer, it was enough to satisfy the San Siro tonight.
Hakan Calhanoglu (6.5): Apart from assisting the fourth goal, he was a good link between the strikers and the defense, was constantly trying to move the ball forward and even though not always successful, his contribution was crucial.
R.Rodriguez (7): After putting his team back on track, he assisted the second goal and became a nightmare for the opponent for the rest of the game.
A.Silva (7.5): Top scorer of the team in Europa League, he did not disappoint as once again he showed his potential by scoring a brace at San Siro to secure a win for his team. Man of the match
Patrick Cutrone (7): Another solid performance, a brace and a promise for a brilliant future.
Substitutions

Lucas Antonelli (5.5): Did not deliver a great performace but was enough to maintain the advantage and not conceed.

Manuel Locatelli (6.5): A big breath of fresh air, he brought a new life to the team and revitalized the midfield.

Gustavo Gomez (N/A)

  1. one question… did you watch the game? Borini assisted 2 goals and there would have been no offense except for his endless running and crossing.. well Rodriguez was awesome too
    Biglia is useless.. master of the midfield? really… what made him the “master” short passes to anyone near him… preferably behind him? taking shots from distance and missing or shooting directly at the keeper? 5 goals scored and no assists… definite “master” performance… exactly what you would expect from our last master regista… Pirlo… yah right
    Calhanoglu was AWFUL… at the end he did set up Cutrone, but that was pure luck, and he was more responsible for the goal than bonucci was giving up the ball like a drunk girl on prom night… he is NOT Milan calibre and will soon have one of his characteristic meltdowns… should not ever start again and should be loaned out ASAP… but I suppose he was as effective as Kaka, like Biglia is the new Pirlo
    Wow… against any other organized side this team would have been lucky to score… this team is in desperate need of a player who can carry the ball in midfield …yes I am looking at you Biglia… and some creativity…yes you Calhanoglu… why montella doesnt play Jack in the middle in the role is beyond me…. oh wait it isnt… Montella has his head so far up his a$$ all he is sees is what he wants to see and forget about how special Jack is.. especially compared to Calhanoglu… same reason he insists on Biglia over Loca, and Kalinic over Cutrone… blinded by stupid pride for the players he requested… guess there is a reason we are mid table and cant score

  2. I agree, Cutrone is definitely better than Kalinic and Loca should be given more game time but I want both Bona and Calha to play as CAM and LAM. Bona is one of the best players in Milan but he doesn’t release the ball that often.
