By Vasil Kotsev

  • Christian Abbiati

    3.00

    Christian Abbiati

    Napoli did not have a single shot on goal tonight. Enough said. He might as well have watched from the stands.

  • Marek Jankulovski
    101
    34
    3.00

    Marek Jankulovski

    Was not really troubled at the back, and looked rusty going forward. He still seems to be short on fitness.

  • Thiago Silva
    176

    3.50

    Thiago Silva

    Impeccable display by the Brazilian. Strong in the tackle and always at the right place at the right time. Made a ghost of Cavani together with Nesta.

  • Alessandro Nesta
    160

    3.50

    Alessandro Nesta

    World-class performance from the veteran. Rock-solid at the back and gave nothing away. Assisted Pato's late strike.

  • Ignazio Abate
    122

    3.50

    Ignazio Abate

    Did very well upfront and was stable at the back. Made a few telling passes before being substituted by Massimo Oddo in the 81st minute.

  • Mathieu Flamini
    107
    19
    3.00

    Mathieu Flamini

    Worked hard in the centre of the pitch, but was poor going forward with his shooting being atrocious. Never shy with his tackling tonight.

  • Mark van Bommel
    178
    2
    3.50

    Mark van Bommel

    Probably his best performance in Rossoneri shirt. Distributed the ball superbly and was strong in the tackle. Unlucky not to score twice and covered a lot of ground.

  • Gennaro Ivan Gattuso
    114
    14
    3.50

    Gennaro Ivan Gattuso

    Kept his nerves today, but was far from being Mary Poppins tonight. Tackled hard and ran like a horse, but seemed a bit tired in the end. Tried to contribute as much as he can in attack as well.

  • Robinho
    70
    91
    2.50

    Robinho

    How exactly he managed not to look good against a very poor Napoli side is beyond me. Almost nothing he tried came off and was substituted by Kevin-Prince Boateng shortly after the break.

  • Zlatan Ibrahimovic
    153
    15
    3.50

    Zlatan Ibrahimovic

    Took his penalty well and was integral to the Rossoneri's attack tonight. Opened space for others and made a few brilliant passes.

  • Alexandre Pato
    321

    4.50

    Alexandre Pato Top of the Match

    Brilliant performance from the Brazilian. Involved into the situation that led to Aronica's handball in Napoli's box, assisted Boateng's strike and put the icing on the cake with an impeccable goal of his own. What more can you want?

Substitutions

  • Kevin-Prince Boateng
    196
    2
    3.50

    Kevin-Prince Boateng

    Scored a wonderful goal and impressed every time he went forward. Made a few good passes and tackles as well.

  • Massimo Oddo

    Massimo Oddo

    N/A

  • Urby Emanuelson

    3.00

    Urby Emanuelson

    Replaced Marek Jankulovski in the 72nd minute and played well in defence as well as in attack.

  • Morgan De Sanctis
    20
    24
    3.00

    Morgan De Sanctis

    Had no chance with the penalty, but could probably have done better with the other two goals. Pulled off some good saves, but did not really impress with his command of the area.

  • Salvatore Aronica
    8
    16
    2.50

    Salvatore Aronica

    Did very well to frustrate Milan in the first half with a good performance at the back. His performance dramatically dropped after the break, conceding a penalty and failing to deal with Milan's dynamic play.

  • Paolo Cannavaro
    13
    8
    2.50

    Paolo Cannavaro

    Pretty frustrating night for the defender who looked rooted to the spot for most of the game. Merely an observer as Pato powered through to score the third.

  • Hugo Campagnaro
    10
    8
    2.50

    Hugo Campagnaro

    Had a hard night against Pato and Ibrahimovic and generally disappointed. At fault for Boateng's strike.

  • Andrea Dossena
    9
    12
    2.50

    Andrea Dossena

    Much running, but no end product once again. His 'crosses' barely reflect the definition.

  • Michele Pazienza
    7
    17
    2.50

    Michele Pazienza

    Destroyed in the centre of the pitch. Failed to exert himself on the game and Napoli completely lost the midfield battle.

  • Walter Gargano
    8
    12
    2.50

    Walter Gargano

    He may have outplayed Bruno last week, but stood no chance against Van Bommel, Gattuso and Flamini. Chased shadows for most of the game.

  • Christian Maggio
    11
    11
    2.50

    Christian Maggio

    Tried hard in the first half, but just gave up after the break. Received little support as well, but he really could have done better.

  • Giuseppe Mascara
    9
    13
    2.50

    Giuseppe Mascara

    Isolated for large parts of the game and failed to create anything of note upfront. Substituted after the break for Zuniga.

  • Edinson Cavani
    25
    21
    2.50

    Edinson Cavani Flop of the Match

    Unlucky to be flagged for offside in the 17th minute and gave his all in the first half. Merely a ghost after the break as he gave up just like his team mates.

  • Marek Hamsik
    23
    17
    2.50

    Marek Hamsik

    Pretty much invisible. Got behind Jankulovsi a couple of times in the first half, but that was it from him tonight.

Substitutions

  • Camilo Zúñiga
    7
    11
    2.50

    Camilo Zúñiga

    Came on for Mascara failed to impress going forward. His terrible finish to a good run in the 73rd minute really said it all.

  • José Sosa
