Never disappointed with his reading of the game and was a calming presence at the back. Left with no chance for the penalty, and was let down by his defence for the second.
Was often outmuscled by AC Milan's attackers in the first half, but grew in confidence as the match progressed. Read the game well, and showed decent positioning.
Defended well in the first half, but probably got affected by the horrible foul Abate committed on him with half an hour on the clock, and his performance started to wane. Attacked well, but mostly before the break.
The robust defender was a bit clumsy in his tackle, and slow to react on a lot of occasions, including the situation in the build-up to the penalty. His positioning left a lot to be desired, too.
Undid all his team's hard effort with a moment of madness that ultimately cost Genoa a point, penalty and number disadvantage for most of the second period. Walked a fine line with the referee from the middle of the first period, and paid the price for excessive aggression. Was dragged out of position easily, and looked clumsy.
Started brightly with a few nice runs and crosses, but his efficiency began to drop rapidly as the game progressed. Looked isolated at times, but nearly scored with a delightful backheel in the 72nd minute.
One could hardly tell if the Serbian was on the pitch. Completely isolated from the game, and did precious little to change that.
Looked out of his depth against AC Milan's midfield as he disappointed with his distribution and reading of the game. Involved in a few arguments on the pitch, and was substituted for Merkel in the second half.
Looked like Genoa's only potent weapon upfront for long periods as his incisive runs and dribbling spelled trouble for Antonini. Let his level of performance drop after the break.
The holding midfielder had an average game as he was more often than not one step behind Aquilani & co. in the centre of the park. Ran a lot, but his efficiency was minimal.
Barely had any opportunities as he failed to pose any threat to AC Milan's back line. Tried a more physical approach in the later stages of the game, but that did not cut it either.
The goalkeeper had virtually nothing to do, but still showed indecisiveness when rushing off-his line. Had a few lapses of concentration, but generally got the job done.
The Colombian is not one to shrink from a challenge, and he showed that in this game. Put in a great display as he tackled bravely and fought for every ball. Impressed with his positioning and marking.
The left-back had an awful first half as Mesto had a remarkably easy time bypassing his resistance. Did not improve much after the break, and had minimal impact in the final third.
The right-back had an average game as he failed to impress both in defence and attack. Could have been sent off for a reckless challenge on Moretti in the first half, and offered little of his rampaging runs.
The Brazilian had a shaky start to the game as he nearly gifted a goal to Genoa with a mistimed pass that fell straight to Mesto. However, he improved as the game progressed, and once again showed great reading of the game.
The ex-Liverpool man showed great vision as his passes went through Genoa's defence like hot knife through butter. Created a sublime chance for Ambrosini early on, and later on for Robinho, who missed the open goal from around three yards out.
The veteran had a disappointing game as he was off the pace, and had to rely on his team-mates to bail him out on more than one occasion. Had a comical moment at the very start of first period, when he was released by Aquilani in the box, and left everyone mystified to his intentions as he appeared to kick the ground and dive at the same time.
Yet another industrious display by the midfielder, who is quickly becoming a vital component of AC Milan's team. Showed immense work-rate and was at the right place at the right time to tap in the second goal.
Was at the heart of everything good about AC Milan in this game. Was unstoppable on the ball, impeccable in his distribution, and impressive with his vision as his sheer skill meant Genoa had their hands full. Assisted the second goal with a brilliant run and pass.
The big Swede led by example as he used his physique to great effect, freeing space for others to exploit and creating opportunities for his team-mates. Scored a good penalty to give his team the lead.
The Brazilian offered very little. Far too often he got himself in endless runs, which ended with him being dispossessed, and most notably missed an open goal in the second half after some great work by Aquilani.
