Player Ratings: Juventus 1-1 AC Milan – Rebic decisive again; Tonali a warrior

By Isak Möller -

AC Milan didn’t get the win at Allianz Stadium this evening but managed to seal one point against Juventus, courtesy of an Ante Rebic equaliser. They remain unbeaten, therefore, and down below are the player ratings. 

Starting XI

Maignan (6): He was called into action quite a few times this evening and made some important stops between the sticks. You can’t fault him for the goal and his distribution was also good.

Tomori (6.5): Started the game at RB but eventually moved to CB due to Kjaer’s injury. He was good in both positions and once again played aggressively without getting booked. The best Milan CB right now.

Kjaer (6): You will have to take his rating with a pinch of salt given that he only played 36 minutes. It was a shame that he had to come off because prior to that, he did well in the heart of what was a three-man defence.

Romagnoli (6): Solid display from the captain as he made a few good interventions at the back. He didn’t make any huge errors (as we have sometimes seen in big games) so overall his display was positive.

Hernandez (5.5): The rating may seem harsh but the truth is Theo made a huge mistake on Juve’s goal. In addition to that, he was incredibly sloppy on the ball and made several mistakes. Was a tad better after the equaliser, though.

Tonali (6.5): The youngster works incredibly hard in the midfield and today he got stuck in as well. Won several duels and also got the crucial assist for Rebic’s equaliser with a lovely corner. Once again, he impressed.

Kessie (5.5): He has been out of it recently and today was no exception. He didn’t seem 100% committed and besides being a point of comfort on the ball, he really didn’t fulfil his duties and there was a noticeable difference when he came off.

Saelemaekers (5.5): Partly responsible for the first goal as he decided to chance a clearance instead of following the Juve player. His performance besides that didn’t impress either as he didn’t have a huge impact.

Diaz (6): He’s incredibly hard to take the ball off and we saw this tonight. His positive moment continued and his creativity wasn’t lacking today, even though Milan struggled to break down the Bianconeri defence.

Leao (6): If you compare him to the opposite side, he was much more comfortable on the ball, even in tight situations. The final touch was lacking at times (like many of his teammates) but he was needed to shake up the opponents a bit.

Rebic (6.5 – MOTM): He was in a mood this evening (in a good way) and he was very important yet again with that equaliser. It was a well-placed header and you can’t have too many complaints about his overall performance either.

Kalulu (6): He came on in the first half and despite his age, he did well in both phases of the game. He was at his best when Pioli decided to push him a bit higher. Nearly got the winner but his effort was somehow saved by the keeper.

Bennacer (6): As already mentioned, it was a big difference when he came on for Kessie. The Algerian looked solid but didn’t make anything spectacular.

Florenzi (6): Just like the other substitutes, it was a solid display off the bench as he most likely did exactly what Pioli demanded from him.

Maldini (N/A): He didn’t have a touch on the ball, so no rating.

  1. Our guys seemed tired. Alot of big games in one week. Well done though!!!
    Forza Milan ❤️🖤❤️🖤❤️ we’ll take the win @sansiro

  2. If Calabria wasn’t injured I’d say we would have won this game, I’m not taking anything away form the guys who played. Having said that, come January Kessie should be out of this team, we can see Adli doing wonders already. We need quality depth in the attack God forbid Briam Diaz picks up and injury. Overall the players gave thier all. Theo needs to rest he is obviously tired.

  3. Man what is happening to Kessie, totally confused against Liverpool and today also. Maignan and Tomori really solid. Theo out of position like every game and caused the goal. ‘Good’ performance by Tonali and Diaz…the rest below average.

  4. Who gives Roma a 6 rating? I will score him a 5.
    Tomori was impressive all through, will give a 7
    Diaz was top notch, will give a 6.5 same as Tonali.
    Leao, was off it, same as Theo both will get a 5.
    Kessie was sloppy, 5 rating.
    Apart from thr goal scored, he could have gotten a 4.5, the goal pushes him to a 6.5.

    Kjaer was fantastic until he was subbed of, 5 rating.
    Maignan was fantastic all through, a 6.5 rating.

    Benecer did nothing or little in the game, a 5 rating.
    Kalulueft a mark, a 6.

    Now, it is quite obvious we have a lot to do in thr coming market opening.
    Leao and Rebic are not dependable

    1. Rebic…the guy that scored a goal and rescued a point, keeping us unbeaten? The guy that had 2 assists in our last match, so that’s 2 assists and a goal and it’s only matchday 4? Rebic who scored against Liverpool at ANFIELD?

    2. You either have no clue WTH you’re talking about or you’re on drugs…Rebic has been “somewhat” inconsistent at times…BUT…he’s also Milan’s most impressive secondary scorer ( no pk’s like Kessie or Ibra)… and defenders can’t control him when he’s in form!

  5. Milan’s main problem is our RW. Nothing good comes from there. When Giroud and Ibra return I want to see Rebic on that wing or JM (Junior Messiah)
    Theo is almost always ineffective when we play against low block teams.

  6. Tonali looks like he needs rest..Bennacer-Kessie have to start the next game.Brahim looked tired too..maybe Maldini should start the next game.
    Kalulu looked VERY good.
    We might as well use Castillejo…Saelamaekers was also tired.Gabbia should play some minutes in the next game.We have to rotate the team well to avoid injuries.
    Pellegri should also get some time in the next game.

  7. Leao 6p ??? Ok je did some great moves.
    But he runs forward then stopped and played the ball back nerly all the time. Is he afraid to score or make an assist?

    It feels like that the possesion was the most important today.
    Poor Rebic runs and finds the small areas that can lead to great chances but nerly everytime for nothing because they played it sidevise or back instead.

    But hey. Juve on there way to serie B, so something to enjoy. 😉

  8. Pioli are you listening now. Rotate the team don’t stick to particular players. Make them fit and have it at the back of their mind that they can be called upon any time to play (Rotate them Mr. Pioli)

  9. To Maldini and Masara if AC Milan wants get back we need surplus players to give Pioli more attacking options to reduce loads of work on the defence. Diaz & Sealemaker does not have a good replacements and our defenders are sustaining injury due their over work, kudos to them. we need more options

  10. I think we need a true RW (unless Messias proves to be great) and at least one very solid Central defender in January – maybe even another midfielder (until we get Pobega back).

    Kessie out and Pobega in.

    I would love to see a three man midfield with Tonali, Bennacer and Pobega one day.

  11. I would also love to see if we can get Rebic to be a good on the right flank.


  12. Sometime in the near future i would love to see this lineup 🙂







  13. Kessie’s performance – lack of it – is starting to be an issue. Lack of focus,care are glaring at us. Tonali is not yet ready to carry the workload. There is definitely a nice improvement from the youngster. I would like to see Maldini start on Wed. v Venezia.
