AC Milan vs. Genoa

AC Milan vs. Genoa

2-1

Carlos Bacca, Keisuke Honda (Ma

tteo De Sciglio), Alessio Cerci

Starting Lineups:

AC Milan: Donnaruma, De Sciglio, Alex, Romagnoli, Antonelli, Honda, Montolivo, Bertolacci, Bonaventura, Niang, Bacca

Genoa: Perin, Maio, Burdisso, Izzo, Fiamozzi, Rigoni, Dzemaili, Gilva, Suso, Laxalt, Matavz

AC Milan: 6th

Genoa: 16th

Milan continues to show it unbeaten form as they close in on 5th place city rivals, Inter Milan. The score does not reflect the true game play, as the one goal by Cerci was merely a consolation goal. Milan dominated in possession and shot/shots on target. The brilliant goals by Bacca and Honda prove the threatening offensive power Milan can unleash, and we need to keep seeing more of that if Milan hope to challenge for the to spots.

Player Ratings:

Donnaruma: 6- quiet game, was not truly called into action until Cerci’s late consolation goal

De Sciglio: 6- had all the time to go forward as well as defend

Alex: 6-solid performance, did not much through

Romagnoli: 6.5- showed great mature play to keep the Genoa attack quiet

Antonelli: 6- played well, kept Suso, then Cerci quiet

Honda: 7.5- showed spectators his ability to break down defenses in addition to showing off his long range shooting with a brilliant strike to double Milan’s lead

Montolivo: 6.5- cool, calm, and collective as the deep midfielder, showed great composure on ball

Bertolacci: 5.5- nothing too impressive, mostly helped out Montolivo in the middle

Bonaventura: 6- did well to cause problems with the Genoa defense through his passes and shots

Niang: 5.5- used his pace to unravel the defense, just could not find the net

Bacca: 7- showed supporters his clinical finishing

Substitutes:

Jeremy Menez: 6- nice to see him returning for his first game this season

Balotelli: N/A

Poli: N/A

Honda rifles home a brilliant long range screamer to double to double Milan’s lead
