Lucas Paqueta was the best player on the field during AC Milan’s 1-0 defeat to Juventus on Sunday night, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.
The Rossoneri lost their ninth straight game away from home against Juve in Serie A, with substitute Paolo Dybala netting the decisive goal 13 minutes from time.
On the whole though it was one of Milan’s best performances of the season as they created numerous chances and made the Bianconeri work incredibly hard for their three points.
Nonetheless, Milan now sit in 14th position in the league table having lost seven of their first 12 games to start the season.
La Gazzetta dello Sport’s player ratings (via MilanNews.it) heaped praise upon Paqueta for his performance in the middle of the park, awarding him a 6.5/10.
Gianluigi Donnarumma and Andrea Conti each also received marks of 6.5 with the latter particularly impressive on the right.
Leo Duarte, Theo Hernandez, Ismael Bennacer and Rade Krunic all got scores of 6, while Alessio Romagnoli, Suso and Giacomo Bonaventura all got 5.5/10.
Krzysztof Piatek (who missed a couple of good chances) Hakan Calhanoglu and Rafael Leao (not in the game) were all criticised however, scoring just 5/10.
