Davide Calabria believes that AC Milan were ‘very unbalanced’ during their game against Paris Saint-Germain which left them repeatedly exposed.
Milan were soundly beaten in the French capital on Wednesday night by PSG, who ran out 3-0 winners at the Parc des Princes as Stefano Pioli’s men just couldn’t deal with their attacking quality.
The first was rather predictably scored by Kylian Mbappe who fired in at the near post, then Randal Kolo Muani netted a rebound in the second half and Kang-In Lee rounded off the scoring in the closing stages.
Milan are now bottom of the group with no wins in their three games and no goals scored, while PSG are top with six points. Newcastle and Dortmund, after the Germans won at St. James Park, are both on four.
Calabria spoke to Prime Video after the game to try and assess what was a difficult night for the team, with his comments relayed by MilanNews.
“There is some regret for the first two games, today they were stronger and very organised, with ready players. We are not taking our opportunities,” he said.
“They have a phenomenon up front who scores a goal on the first shot, we are missing that. There is regret for the first two, we could have scored more points.”
Could it be said that Milan didn’t put their effort into it?
“Yes, I think so, we could have done better with the ball too and we were also very unbalanced, accepting one-on-ones against these players. It’s difficult to analyse well in the heat of the moment. A few too many bookings at the start.”
The group is now tough…
“It’s tough, but it’s definitely not over, so we’ll play it. Anyone who doesn’t believe it can stay at home and we believe it.”
