GdS: Nine points in three games for Milan after ‘total domination’ against Roma

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan clinched yet another victory last night as they managed to beat Roma 2-1 way from home. It could have been a more comfortable night if they hadn’t received a red card, praised by the newspapers this morning. 

The Rossoneri’s start to the season has indeed been very strong, collecting nine points in three games. As highlighted by today’s edition of Gazzetta Dello Spor (via MilanNews), Milan had ‘total domination’ in the first half against Roma.

Fikayo Tomori’s sending-off made things more difficult but despite 30 minutes plus stoppages with a man down, Milan only conceded because of a wicked deflection. The defensive display was very impressive indeed.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek was one of the best on the pitch, as the newspaper continues, and the new signings have certainly impressed quickly. Having said that, ‘the old men’ Olivier Giroud and Rafael Leao also stepped up.

The first three games were difficult to predict, with so many new signings and new tactics, but Milan got the best start possible. The derby is up next and they will have to use the current enthusiasm to clinch the win.

  1. After only the first 15 minutes of the game it became clear to me how much better we are than Roma! We had the situation in our hands, and were in no hurry. If it wasn’t for that red card, you might even call an excursion to Rome a pretty easy task! In the next round, we will have the final test of this team.

  2. The team we have is great …Olivier Giroud 4 goals already ,this man will score 20 goals this season ..Yes I am a huge fan of his …When he starts games we will lose very few games ,,,rafeo leao was brilliant and he is coming back to his best ,sheer class he will score 20 plus goals .Then pulisic another 20 goals ,,.then Loftus cheek ( also a surperb game ) he will will no doubt score lots of goals also ..I did predict Olivier Giroud,yes you have heard it from me again …I did say he would score again against Roma …He is class ..
    We have a team that will compete with anyone .
    We can win the scuddeto this season .
    We have a great squad of players whom will all get to play …So things are looking good’s goals goals goals ..We are AC Milan

  3. Good game. A lesson for Pioli. When you have a player on a yellow card, still kicking opponents from behind, as Tomori did last night, you have to caution him or take him out. That red card almost cost us the game. It would have been a piercing wound, if they had equalized, after completely dominating the game for so long. Also, the team should never rest on just a few goals. They should try to score more, because in football, ” it’s not over until it is all over”. Great result. We wait to see what the other big teams will do.
