Player Ratings: Lazio 4-0 AC Milan

AC Milan failed to bounce back at Stadio Olimpico and instead experienced another trashing, as Lazio managed to find the back of the net four times. Down below are the player ratings for the Rossoneri.

Starting XI

Tatarusanu (2): Lost for words on his performance tonight. He couldn’t do much about the first goal but certainly could have done better on the second, letting the ball go under him. And before the penalty, man did he f*ck up. Milan need another goalkeeper.

Calabria (4): Struggled with position throughout the game and lost the battle against Zaccagni, which really was an important part of Lazio’s superiority in the attack. We need more from our captain.

Kalulu (3): He went up way too high before the first goal, which left a plethora of space for Lazio to exploit. His actions on the penalty were baffling as well; he looked over and saw Pedro coming but still defended like that. Two fatal mistakes.

Tomori (N/A): He was subbed off after 23 minutes due to an injury.

Dest (3.5): Incredibly poor defending on Lazio’s second goal and he didn’t add anything in attack, bar a few good runs up the pitch before laying it off to Leao.

Bennacer (5.5): One of the few players that tried out there this evening. He was at least capable of starting some attacks for Milan and helping out in the build-up as much as possible.

Tonali (5.5): Just like his colleague, the other player that tried this evening. He was present in the defensive as well as the attacking phase and that made him stand out in what was otherwise a poor display from the Milan men.

Messias (4.5): He did well to beat Hysaj on multiple occasions but the end product was painfully lacking.

Diaz (4): He does so well sometimes but mixes it with many poor actions as well. Frustrating to watch and in truth, De Ketelaere should probably start instead.

Leo (5): The winger had a couple of good runs and created some chances for Milan, but his end product was often missing. One of the better players, though, even if that doesn’t mean much this evening.

Giroud (4): A few touches here and there, but nothing more from the experienced Frenchman. As the No.9 of Milan, we need to see a lot more, even if a lot of the blame should be put on his teammates for not creating anything.

Substitutes

Kjaer (5): Had a couple of mistakes that could have cost Milan a lot more tonight. But apart from that, decent in most of his actions.

De Ketelaere (5): It wasn’t a disaster from the Belgian and he certainly looked more capable of making a difference than Diaz. Perhaps he should get the chance from the start.

Saelemaekers (4.5): Good mixed with bad from the winger. He will probably start the next game, even if his impact tonight was minimal.

Origi (4.5): It’s tough to judge him since Lazio controlled Milan completely in the attack. Just like Giroud, not much to work with but at least he showed movement to get the ball.

Rebic (N/A): He didn’t play enough to get a rating.
