By Oliver Fisher -

Although it feels a bit overdue, it is also the perfect time to revisit the game against Hellas Verona and pick out the positive and negative tactical points ahead of a very tough trip to face Napoli.

In case you had forgotten, Milan left it late at San Siro as they battled back from two goals down to earn a 2-2 draw against Hellas Verona.

The Rossoneri found themselves in a horrendous position as they were two goals down inside 20 minutes as Antonin Barak and a Davide Calabria own-goal gave Verona a dream start.
