AC Milan has an opportunity to turn thing around continue their winning ways against SPAL yesterday night. Stefani Pioli’s men played well against SPAL in which they could have keep the momentum going.  Then all hell broke loose inside the penalty box. Andrea Petanga was left unmarked and floated a header into the centre of the box. After a mad scramble Milan failed to clear it, SPAL then scored to put them up 1-0. Not an ideal start to the match but it wasn’t the end for the club. As if that wasn’t enough, SPAL striker scored an absolutely beautiful goal from outside the box which gave Gigo Donnarumma no chance at a save. SPAL were now up 2-0. To continue this wild first half a SPAL player was sent off after a hard tackle on Theo Hernandez. A chaotic 45 minutes saw Milan down 2-0.

Heading into the second half, Pioli men continued their wasteful form for much of the second half. Throughout this half, they were taking shots from outside the box against a 10 man SPAL team. Their attacking prowess was much but they fail to capitalize on it.

Finally, Milan broke through SPAL defence team as Rafael Leao scored to make Milan down one goal up. Milan pressed on from this and through Alexis Saelemaekers crossing, it deflected off a SPAL defender and went straight into the net. Milan had a little luck on their side and the match finished 2-2.

With all that being said, let’s take a look at the AC Milan player ratings courtesy of! Sound off in the comments below!


Gigio Donnarumma: Honestly speaking, for both of SPAL’s goals there was nothing Gigio could do for the team. First, the Italian was let down by his defence and for the second goal he had no chance at all and for that, best online casinos are giving him 6/10.

Davide Calabria: Calabria is not all that bad but not much of an upgrade over Conti. He did his best and almost score an absolutely wonderful goal that just narrowly missed the net he’s 5.5/10 in this game.

Matteo Gabbia: Gabbia performance yesterday night looked a bit more at ease in this match against SPAL not making mistakes that a young player could make but he still wasn’t that solid. However Milan missed the great ball movement of Kjaer For we are going 5.5/10bfor him.

Alessio Romagnoli: Romagnoli can be said to be on a  fine performance as SPAL didn’t really have many scoring opportunities, he’s not the best but we are still going at 6/10 for him.

Theo Hernandez: It was a very disappointing performance from Theo Hernandez against SPAL. Theo registered almost no attacking run and the ones he was able to do, were wasted with poor balls. 5.5/10

Ismael Bennacer: After a string of great games Bennacer was just fine against SPAL. What Milan lacked in this match couldn’t really be blamed on Bennacer. 6/10

Franck Kessie: Like Bennacer, Kessie did fine against SPAL but was a little more wasteful with his shots and touches. Like the gooner news writer said with Bennacer, one can’t really blame him for the loose and he’s on 6/10 with our ratings.

Samu Castillejo: Samu didn’t have much time to shine against SPAL before leaving with an injury. In his limited time, however, he played better than he did against AS Roma and showed more creativity. Despite his little time, we are going at 6/10 for him.

Hakan Calhanoglu: Since his performance against Lecce, Hakan performance has been sub par. He was so wasteful in this match and the constant long shots he kept on providing didn’t really help Milan out. Best we can do with gin is 5.5/10.

Lucas Paqueta: Paqueta was the only bright spot for Milan in this match against SPAL. Paqueta showed his skills and playmaking ability and he should be the one to start. 7/10

Ante Rebic: Rebic had some opportunities against SPAL but ultimately like the rest of the team he was wasteful. On a few occasions, his poor touch stalled the Milan attack. 5.5/10
