Milan 0-0 Inter: The Rossoneri Player Ratings

Milan and Inter play to a 0-0 draw at the San Siro after striker Mauro Icardi fluffs two close opportunities just yards from goal.

The Rossoneri player ratings.

Gianluigi Donnarumma (6.0): The teenager played some risky balls out the back and nearly put himself and his back line into danger on several occasions. Donnarumma was beaten by Icardi where he could have done better to deny him, but luckily for him, VAR waved off the chance.

Davide Calabria (6.5): A decent outing from the young Italian who will likely be handed the full starting job now that Andrea Conti is set to go under the knife once again. Six tackles and a constant work-rate were needed tonight considering how exhausted some players were as the match hit the final stages.

Leonardo Bonucci (7.0): Milan’s captain did well to clear his lines and maintained order in the back during the build-up stages with a 90% pass accuracy.

Alessio Romagnoli (7.0): Another quality performance by Romagnoli who continues to show why he was every bit worth the €25m Milan shelled out for him several years ago. Together with Bonucci, the Italian did well to cover his ground and show his passing ability with a 95% accuracy and seven successful long balls.

Ricardo Rodriguez (5.5): Disappointing from the Swiss international who although had three tackles and two successful dribbles won, was shocking in man-marking situations and when on the offensive.

Franck Kessie (6.5): The Ivorian did well in the midfield as a ball carrier and even had some good involvement in the final third.

Riccardo Montolivo (6.0): Not a good outing for the former Milan captain in place of Lucas Biglia. He wasn’t sharp with his passing and even sent a few passes wide of the mark that placed the defence in a difficult spot.

Giacomo Bonaventura (5.5): Jack’s fallen off quite a bit in recent weeks after coming to life under Gennaro Gattuso. Too often his passing was behind the run of play and slowed the counter, leaving Inter a bit more time to reshape. The Rossoneri need him back in form if they still want a shot at Europe.

Suso (6.0): A better second half from the Spaniard, but Inter closed him down with numbers on the right flank and prevented him from cutting inside where he is most dangerous.

Patrick Cutrone (6.0): Cutrone only had 16 touches, but for the most part, did well with what he was given. His movement in the final third was there, and he worked hard to contribute wherever he could.

Hakan Calhanoglu (6.0): The Turkish playmaker was a bit too indecisive in the final third, and at times did not execute the simple pass to keep the flow of play moving. Overall, Calhanoglu was probably Milan’s best in the attack, yet he really didn’t do anything spectacular.

Substitutions

Manuel Locatelli (6.0): The youngster replaced Montolivo in the second half at the base of the midfield, completing 100% of his passes (9/9).

Nikola Kalinic (5.0): The heavily criticized Croatian was a questionable sub by Gattuso, and he did nothing to help change minds. Late in the closing minutes, Kalinic went up for a cross that Suso managed to keep in, and it glanced off his face weakly. Another poor showing by the ex-Fiorentina striker.

Fabio Borini (n/a): The Italian replaced Bonaventura with nine minutes remaining, and did little of note to properly assess his performance.
