Player Ratings: AC Milan 3-1 Chievo

As Milan overcame a plucky Chievo team, Goal.com rates the players on show...

By David Schiavone

  • Christian Abbiati

    3.50

    Christian Abbiati

    Forced into a number of good stops and was equal to most Chievo attacks. A little unlucky for the goal.

  • Alessandro Nesta

    3.00

    Alessandro Nesta

    Calming influence at the back although he would not have been happy with the amount of covering he had to do for Zambrotta.

  • Thiago Silva
    5

    3.00

    Thiago Silva

    A rock at the back for the most part, but was taken off injured in the second half with a calf strain.

  • Luca Antonini
    3
    0
    2.50

    Luca Antonini

    Gave the ball away too often, allowing Chievo to get in behind him. Provided his usual gusto when going forward, but should not be surrendering possession so frequently.

  • Gianluca Zambrotta
    3
    1
    3.00

    Gianluca Zambrotta

    Let Constant in behind him way too often. Though did get forward with purpose, his legs did not allow him to get back into defence quickly enough.

  • Gennaro Ivan Gattuso
    6

    3.00

    Gennaro Ivan Gattuso

    Driving force for Milan, hassled, harried and looks a different player from last season.

  • Andrea Pirlo
    3
    0
    3.00

    Andrea Pirlo

    Didn't get on the ball as much as he would have liked and caught dwelling on occasions, but still showed some class with his passing range.

  • C. Seedorf

    3.00

    C. Seedorf

    Provided a nice attacking threat from midfield and linked the play well.

  • Alexandre Pato

    Alexandre Pato Top of the Match

    Opening goal was beautifully taken and showed great awareness for the second. Looked lively all night with a very good performance before being replaced by Robinho.

  • Zlatan Ibrahimovic

    4.00

    Zlatan Ibrahimovic

    Great vision to see Pato at the far post for the first goal and even better for the second. Brilliant display, though did make a two footed lunge in the second half which he was lucky not to get a card for.

  • Ronaldinho
    7
    3
    3.50

    Ronaldinho

    Showed some excellent touches, really enjoyed himself in the first half and made a mug of Luca Rigoni with some brilliant close control. Assisted Robinho for the third.

Substitutions

  • Daniele Bonera

    3.00

    Daniele Bonera

    Came on for the injured Thiago Silva and had one or two shaky moments.

  • Kevin-Prince Boateng
    6

    3.00

    Kevin-Prince Boateng

    Added some much needed dynamism late on as the pace slowed.

  • Robinho
    6
    0
    3.00

    Robinho

    A little anonymous when he first came on, but took his goal well as he rounded Sorrentino to tap in from close range.

  • Stefano Sorrentino
    0
    1
    3.00

    Stefano Sorrentino

    Made a couple of good stops, once from Pato and another from Ibra. But could have done better with the goals.

  • Bostjan Cesar
    0
    2
    3.00

    Bostjan Cesar

    Didn't know too much about his goal and was caught sleeping for Pato's second. Up and down game for the central defender.

  • Marco Andreolli
    0
    2
    2.50

    Marco Andreolli

    Had a solid enough game and made an excellent tackle on Zambrotta early in the second half.

  • Nicolas Sebastien Frey

    2.50

    Nicolas Sebastien Frey

    Had a tough time of it in the first period as Milan focussed on his flank.

  • Andrea Mantovani
    0

    2.50

    Andrea Mantovani

    Solid enough, but should have been closer to Pato for both of the Brazilian's goals.

  • Luca Rigoni
    0
    2
    3.00

    Luca Rigoni

    Was overran at times as Gattuso seemed to be on a mission.

  • Kevin Constant
    0
    1
    3.00

    Kevin Constant

    He was a danger, went close with a couple of first half shots, and forced a double save from Abbiati.

  • Simone Bentivoglio

    2.50

    Simone Bentivoglio

    Taken of at half time after making little impact on the right side of a midfield trio.

  • Mariano Bogliacino

    2.50

    Mariano Bogliacino

    Tough night for him as he suffered from lack of support, eventually taken off late in the second half.

  • Sergio Pellissier
    0
    1
    2.50

    Sergio Pellissier

    Frustrating evening, dealt with easily by Nesta and Silva, but got the flick on at the corner and gave Chievo hope.

  • P. Granoche

    0
    2.50

    P. Granoche Flop of the Match

    Had a free header in the first half but it was too weak and went straight at Abbiati, worked hard but couldn't get past Nesta.

Substitutions

  • Gelson Fernandes

    Gelson Fernandes

    Was busy in the midfield after being introduced at half time, should have started the match.
