AC Milan failed to beat Atletico Madrid this evening as the latter fought their way back and scored twice late on. The Rossoneri were extremely unlucky, with some poor officiating, but there were some positives.
Ismael Bennacer was one of the best players for Milan as he was everywhere, intercepting a good amount of balls and building the play for the team. In our ratings, he got 7/10 and was praised for his performance.
Speaking to Mediaset after the game, as cited by MilanNews, Bennacer shared his thoughts on the game and Milan’s performance. He echoed the feelings of every Rossoneri fan right now: losing in that was is very tough.
“When you lose like this, even if we gave everything, it’s always tough. Big games are decided by small details and these have made all the difference. When I talk about this, I talk about everything, but that’s the way it is.
“The penalty? There is the VAR and they made the decision, I don’t know what to say. That’s how it went, we can’t do anything about it. Now we have to raise our heads and be focused on the next match,” he stated.
Milan will now have to recharge their batteries as they will take on Atalanta on Sunday evening. It will be an important game, of course, as they want to continue their unbeaten run and put in a confidence-boosting performance.
