GdS: Milan player ratings from Hellas Verona win – several players get high praise

By Oliver Fisher -

Several AC Milan players were deserving of praise after their performance in last night’s win against Hellas Verona at the Stadio Bentegodi.

La Gazzetta dello Sport have published their player ratings in today’s edition, starting with the overall team score of 8 out of 10, and the same mark for Stefano Pioli. Sandro Tonali scored a brace on his birthday and got an 8, while Theo Hernandez (6) struggled the most.

Mike Maignan got a 6, Davide Calabria received a 6.5, while Pierre Kalulu and Fikayo Tomori each got a 7 in what was an improved defensively display after Verona’s opener. Franck Kessie and Alexis Saelemaekers each got a 6.5.

Rade Krunic got a rare start as a playmaker and was worthy of a 7, with Rafael Leao getting an 8 for his two assists and Olivier Giroud getting a 6. Junior Messias and Ante Rebic got a 6.5 for their impact off the bench, and Ismael Bennacer got a 6.

  1. at this point, krunic is better than diaz.

    leao is super impressive, and tonali tenacious movement place him on scoring positions

    and that goal from florenzi come out of nowhere

    1. No. The goal from Florenzi came from his heart. Credit to Messias Jr for interpreting the movement and releasing the back immediately for a give and go between him and Florenzi.

  2. Agree with all of Gazzetta grades except for Calabria.
    Calabria should also have a 6. He was beat time after time by Lazovic throughout the game and allowed the run and cross that led to Verona’s goal.
    Theo was absolutely worst Milan player. Didn’t do anything offensively and was very shaky defensively. His man scored Verona’s goal and Theo was nowhere near him. He also made another mistake in the second half that put Milan in danger.
    Maignan had very little to do yesterday and the one time he was called upon, on Verona’s goal, he didn’t respond. He has to intercept that cross, but he was caught in a nomans land. He misjudged the flight of the ball
    All in all, very good performance by the team and a great response after going down a goal in a very important game

    1. Yes, I watched the replay time and time again. He has to work on his aerial alertness. I have noticed more goals scored against him from crosses such as that. He can work on that and do better
