Beaten rather easily for all but the first goal. Milan had three shots on target, and scored thrice, which really says it all. A game to forget for the Dutch goalkeeper.
The Brazilian defender had a very difficult game against Ibrahimovic and should take some of the blame for the opener. More often than not he found it hard to contain the Swede, and was hesitant in the air.
The Spaniard had a below par game as he was caught out of position on a number of occasions. Was reckless in the tackle, and was not much of a threat in the final third in the second half. At fault for Nesta's goal as he was easily out muscled by the veteran.
The Argentine was the best player in Roma's defense, which is not saying much. Did well to score the equalizer, but was often turned inside and out by Robinho, and his lack of pace was exposed on a number of occasions.
The defender showed once again his positioning sense was below par as more often than not he had to sprint back to catch up with Milan's attackers. Had virtually no contribution in the final third.
The Chilean was simply unplayable at times, dribbling with ease past the visitors' defense. Put in some neat passes, and did a lot of work in defense as well.
The Argentine hardly made an impact as he chased shadows for most of the game, and failed to make his presence felt in the center of the pitch. Booked for an offense that could have easily earned him a red card.
D. De Rossi
The midfielder had a great game in defensively, but failed to offer anything in the final third. Showed some good touches on the ball, but his passing was far from his usual standard.
The former Olympique Lyonnais man showed great delivery from set-pieces, but was hardly a threat from open play. Assisted the equalizer, and nearly scored with a majestic free-kick on the hour mark.
The ex-Chelsea man did well before picking up an injury, which ended his participation in this game.
Missed a great chance in the 71st minute, and cut a frustrated figure upfront. Did not get many chances, but hardly helped himself with his positioning either.
The goalkeeper had no chance for the equalizer, but could have done better for Roma's second goal as he spilled Lamela's shot onto Bojan's feet. He did pull off some fantastic saves, though, as he stopped Pjanic's free kick on the hour mark, and denied Osvaldo from six yards out in the 71st minute.
An inept performance as he was completely at fault for the equalizer and had absolutely no influence in the final third. Looked like a liability at the back in a game he would like to forget.
The veteran defender delivered an immense performance in the heart of Milan's defense. Read the game superbly, and made some very important interventions, with his lunge in the 57th minute being a highlight. Scored a fine goal to put the cherry on the cake.
Had a field day against Roma's left flank until Lamela entered the pitch. Was rock-solid at the back in the first half, and made a few rampaging runs, but was pinned back once the Argentine came on.
Had a lapse of concentration, which ultimately got punished as Roma scored a second goal. Did very well to limit Osvaldo's efficiency, once again proving he is a great reader of the game.
Had an average game as nothing he tried in this game worked. His passing was sloppy, and he lacked his usual drive. Shown a red card for a spat on the touchline shortly after he was substituted.
The former Palermo man had a decent game as he showed tremendous work rate, covering a lot of ground for his team. Kept his passing simple, but should really have converted a chance in the 86th minute.
M. van Bommel
The Dutchman had an uncharacteristically poor game as he did not look like his usual combative self in the center of the pitch. On top of that, his passing was below-par, and looked hesitant on the ball.
The ex-Liverpool man had an inspired game as he displayed his arsenal of precise passing and shooting. Assisted Ibrahimovic's brace, and nearly got on the score-sheet with a cracking effort near the hour mark. Did not look too assured helping out in defense, however.
An immense performance by the Swede, who led his team by example, netting with two superb headers. Gave Roma's defense a nightmare evening in a memorable game.
The Brazilian was sharp on the ball in this game, but his final pass left a lot to be desired. Showed great vision to bypass Roma's defense, but really could have done better to take his chances.
- 18 G. Curci
Beaten in the air by Ibrahimovic for the third goal that ultimately sunk Roma.
- 20 S. Perrotta
- 23 L. Greco
An inspired cameo by the former River Plate youngster, who was at the heart of everything in the final 20 minutes, and played a key part in Roma's second goal.
- 22 M. Borriello
Came on for Borini, and generally had a hard time against Milan's robust defense. Showed great instincts to score Roma's second goal, though.
