Player Ratings: Bayern Munich 1-0 AC Milan – Biglia and Hernandez impressive

By Fred Ilondo -

The Rossoneri kicked off their US pre-season tour with a defeat against Bayern Munich; a good fitness test for Giampaolo’s men.

Starting eleven

Donnarumma (6): Although he did not have many saves to make, he looked composed and confident enough anytime he did not have to play the ball with his feet.

Calabria (6): Solid defensively, even though he could have done a bit more going forward.

Gabbia (6.5): Impressive performance from the youngster. Calm and focused throughout the game.

Strinic (5.5): Definitely the weakest defender today, poor decisions and looked shaky with the ball at his feet.

Hernandez (7.5 – MOTM): Despite an unfortunate injury at the end of the first half, Theo Hernandez was easily the best player on the pitch, created many chances and brought a much-needed pace to Milan’s game.

Biglia (7): An unusual yet great performance by the Argentine, orchestrating every attack and supporting the defence beautifully.

Borini (5): Even by his standards, this was poor.

Calhanoglu (5.5): Showed glimpses of talent in the second half but overall, he was barely in the game.

Maldini (5.5): Nervous and completely unsure of himself. However, the talent is undeniable even though this was not a very impressive performance.

Piatek (5): Isolated most of the time but even when he had the ball, the polish did not look convincing. His poor first touch resulted in him losing too many balls.

Castillejo (5.5): Not necessarily a poor performance but not a particularly great one either.


Conti (5): After seeing Theo Hernandez’ great pace and confidence in the first half, watching Conti walk and give the ball back to the defence for 45 minutes was not exactly pleasant.

Cutrone (6): Despite his big miss, the young striker was actually the only player in the attack who was trying to get something from this game. His constant pressing made the opposition’s defence uncomfortable and helped his team keep up with the game’s rhythm.

Bresciannini: N/A

Mionic: N/A

  1. Calabria did very well. “He could have done a bit more going forward” – but he did not have Suso to interact with.
