It was hardly a vintage display from Milan against SPAL on Thursday night, with Suso’s free-kick 62 minutes in being the only goal.
The Rossoneri toiled for large parts of the game and struggled to break down their plucky opponents, but one player who can be proud of their performance is Ismael Bennacer.
In for Lucas Biglia, who hard started the first two games under Stefano Pioli’s tenure, the Algerian looked assured and confident both on and off the ball and added midfield dynamism that Milan had been sorely lacking.
He did make a few mistakes while in possession and was too rash into challenges some time, earning him a lower than average score in our ratings, but below you can see what there is to build on…
