Better late than never – here are my ratings.
Abbiati 6. – saved the ones he should’ve saved and conceded 2 where he had little to do. He was on heels for 90 minutes and was always ready to win our team some seconds. Confidence boosting performance.
Abate 6.5 – at times he looked like the only one who can run with Barca players and dispossess them rather than wait. Can forgive him the first goal.
Thiago Silva 6.5 – some shaky moments but a game-tying goal. Will forgive him the first goal.
Nesta 7.5 MOTM – Minister of Defence back at his position. What’s his tackling level on those games the youth loves so much? I nominate 1 000 000 000.
Zambrotta 6 – the heat map showed Barca put most pressure on him. Coped ok with it though not too good.
Nocerino 5.5 – won a crucial corner Gattuso style and covered the most ground by our players. But did he caught my eye overall? No.
Van Bommel 6 – stupid card but smart pressure all the time. He was leading our midfield in the defensive phase.
Seedorf 6.5 – only one who could hold the ball for a second and let his teammates breath. And a nice assist from the corner.
Ambrosini 5 – off-form or finished? Played through slight injury? Silly fouls and bad touches. Nothing positive.
Cassano 4.5 – dreadful game. Maybe not suited for such a match but definetely fatigued of all the games he has had over the week.
Pato 6.5 – great to see him scoring. Great to see him scoring in Europe. Could he have done better at some chances? Yes, but with only few touches on the ball we can’t expect all of them to be perfect. Could anyone do better than his opener? No, that is the goal of the season.
Milan 6.5 – the attack was lacking but the defense of the whole team was to be proud of.
Allegri 6.5 – fixed the problems from Lazio game and made the most with depleted selection.
