AC Milan secured their first Scudetto in eleven (!) years as they managed to beat Sassuolo convincingly this evening. Down below are the player ratings of the Rossoneri, with several great performances.
Maignan (8): He made a stunning save in the first half and also got a hand to an effort that ended up hitting the post in the second half. His distribution is key and it’s been a fantastic season from him.
Calabria (7.5): We often say he isn’t always spectacular but after what was a solid performance overall, he showed off a bit towards the end and earns a high rating for his display.
Kalulu (8): Pace, strength and so much more from the youngster who kept the dangerous Sassuolo attackers at bay this evening. Lovely stuff.
Tomori (8): Just like his colleague, a solid performance at the back that included some nice tackles and also gave Sassuolo a really hard time. They only had Berardi from distance to rely on.
Hernandez (8): He was very involved in the attack play this evening and he made all the right decisions when going forward. Also strong at the back, and he deserves praise for that indeed.
Tonali (8): He got carded in the first half (which was harsh) but he helped Milan loads with the high pressing in the first half. In addition, he won the ball back many times and he was crucial yet again.
Kessie (8): He got his farewell goal after all and it was also a solid performance to top it all off with the Milan shirt. He will be missed, you simply cannot deny it but hopefully we can replace him like with Donnarumma.
Saelemaekers (7.5): He really used his skill this evening and it helped him keep possession on several occasions. Nearly got on the scoresheet in the first half but his effort was denied.
Krunic (7.5): Another very strong performance from the Bosnian and it was the right decision to start him. He did tremendously well with the high pressing and was behind the third goal.
Leao (10): It’s the first 10 we have ever given out and it is certainly justified. The Portuguese winger assisted all three goals and especially the first two goals were created solely by him. Stunning, a masterclass.
Giroud (9): Tonight showed exactly why Milan brought him in ahead of this season. He reached double figures in the league (11 in total) he was decisive, yet again, when it mattered for the Rossoneri.
Bennacer (7): Solid display from the Algerian although he slipped quite a lot (as many players did) and it affected his performance a little.
Ibrahimovic (7): It’s possible that it was his last outing not just in the Milan shirt, but in his whole career. A fantastic player and man that the Rossoneri owe a lot to.
Diaz (7): Solid from the Spaniard who kept the ball at his feet most of the time. Inflated rating? Maybe, but we’ll allow it this evening.
Florenzi (7): Fighting spirit is just one of the things he adds to the team, and he showed it tonight again.
Romagnoli (7): Just like Ibrahimovic, it’s possible that it was his last Milan outing. Grazie capitano, grazie.
