    1. info from milaneye

      “Giroud suffers from muscle fatigue while Kjaer and Bakayoko were left out as they will play in tomorrow’s friendly against Pergolettese”

  1. I guess it’s worth practicing playing with 10 men, these situations come up during the season. Still, would have been nice to use this opportunity to integrate Adli.

  2. I don’t understand this, why is Diaz on the Xl ? Real wants him back, Diaz wants Real, why is Milan developing a player that will eventually leave the team!!!

  3. It’s impossible to understand. Imagine if they tried this hard with Paqueta or Hauge. Chance after chance, no matter how badly they would play. And as you said, he’s not even our player.
