GdS: Milan player ratings for Vicenza trashing – five players stand out

By Isak Möller -

Several players impressed as AC Milan added another win to their pre-season tally, with just one week left until the season opener against Udinese. 6-1 was the final score and thus there were a few standouts. 

Today’s edition of Gazzetta Dello Sport (via SempreMilan) took stock of the individual performances in yesterday’s clash vs. Vicenza. The assessment of the newspaper isn’t exactly surprising, given which players scored and bagged assists.

Hernandez, Bennacer, Messias, Rebic and Leao were all given the highest rating (a 7/10) and the Portuguese winger was named the MOTM. Indeed, they combined well throughout the game and were responsible for most of the goals.

Fikayo Tomori is slightly behind with a 6.5 despite his goal in the second half, given that he lost his man on Vicenza’s early strike. The likes of Maignan, Calabria, Kalulu, Tonali, Krunic, Diaz, Saelemaekers and De Ketelaere passed the test and got a 6.

It should also be mentioned that Pioli was given a 7 by the newspaper, making few subs last night and focusing on getting the players ready for the opener. The tactical plan was clearly right despite the early goal, which caught them off guard.

  1. We played fine but lets get real here we played against a serie c team so wining with a 5 goal difference isn’t too much to ask for in my view.
    When that is said besides of the apparent injuries im not too worried about the new season as we have overall looked good in pre season and also proven to play with consistency over the past 2 seasons so i see no reason why we shouldn’t be able to at minimum fight to the end for the scudetto and progress through our cl group as we should be in pot 1.
    Hopefully we will see a few more additions before the transfer window closes though.

      1. That and horrible var decisions but we will prevail. Anyways the reports says that the injuries of yesterday apparently isnt as bad as first assumed so hopefully that is correct.

  2. Yes we will be fine this season we have quality in our team ,and never rule Giroud out as I believe he will be a star again ..I believe he can score 20 goals ( of course if he remains free of any serious injuries .
    GIROUD IS CLASS …technically he is superb ,and his experience and being in the right place at the right time is second to none .of course his sheer strength is a great asset to any team ..let’s not be too worried ,I believe we will challenge for honours again this season .

    1. Now that there’s actually multiple players who can create chances, Giroud – if fit – should easily score 20 goals in Serie A alone this season.
