AC Milan drew their second game of the USA pre-season tour as the encounter with Juventus finished 2-2. The Bianconeri won the penalty shoot-pout 4-3 and down below are the player ratings for the Rossoneri.
Maignan (6): He couldn’t do much about the goals and was solid overall with his passing and presence.
Calabria (N/A): He came off after just 20 minutes with an injury so we didn’t see enough to give him a rating.
Thiaw (6.5): It wasn’t his best game defensively, truth be told, but he did get a goal and also an assist. It’s hard to ignore that given that Milan only scored those two goals, but with some more pre-season he will probably look better defensively as well.
Tomori (6): An okay game from the Englishman with no huge mistakes this time out. But it remains to be seen if he can find a consistent form.
Hernandez (6): Nothing special from him in both phases of the game, truth be told, but he did get the assist for Thiaw’s goal with a lovely cross.
Loftus-Cheek (6): He was not as impactful this time out, perhaps because Pulisic played on the right, but he really wasn’t bad either.
Krunic (5.5): Not his best game in terms of directing the play and he also made a mistake on Juve’s second goal (not jumping to clear the cross). He must do better in that role.
Reijnders (6.5): The way he’s able to drive with the ball with pace is really a strength that will come in handy for Milan. He also got stuck in at the back and showed that he can do the defensive duties as well.
Pulisic (6): The right doesn’t appear to be his best side, but he did okay to create a few chances even if Juve doubled up on him most of the time.
Giroud (5.5): Got a significant deflection on Rugani’s header for the 2-2 goal and even though he did get on the scoresheet, it was a very anonymous game in open play.
Leao (6.5): Looked in a good mood and created more than one chance for the Rossoneri. That on/off switch he has when driving with the ball is so satisfying to watch, beating the defenders with ease most of the time.
Sportiello (6): He saved two penalties in the shoot-out and was okay overall.
Bartesaghi (6): The missed penalty aside, he actually looked decent in the actual game and used his size to command the backline.
Pobega (5.5): We didn’t really see that much of him in the game and he also missed a penalty.
Adli (6): He looked very good on the ball and also showed his awareness of the game with some good positioning.
Saelemaekers (6): Given he played as a right-back, we didn’t see much going forward but he actually did okay defensively.
Chaka Traore (5.5): A rather disappointing performance despite some good runs and interceptions. He wasn’t good enough in the 1v1 duels and also failed to finish off a good chance.
Romero (5.5): He worked hard on the pitch but didn’t really have an impact on the game and also missed a penalty.
Simic, De Ketelaere, Colombo and Zeroli (N/A): We didn’t see enough to give a rating.
