Player Ratings: AC Milan 1-1 Lazio

Goal took in the action at San Siro, where the Rossoneri were held to another underwhelming result as the visitors fought back from a Kaka wonder goal to claim a point

By Keeghann Sinanan

  • Gabriel
    140
    17
    3.00

    Gabriel

    Could not help the Lazio goal, and dealt with whatever else was flung his way, despite the potentially treacherous conditions.

  • Mattia De Sciglio
    123
    22
    2.50

    Mattia De Sciglio

    Fared well against the dribbling threat of Candreva, and did not allow the winger much opportunity to make advances down his flank in the first half, though he was more susceptible after the break.

  • Cristian Zapata
    62
    60
    3.00

    Cristian Zapata

    Had a pair of hairy moments dealing with the conditions, that nearly turned into a chance for the opposition. However, he survived those slip ups and put in an otherwise assured shift at the back.

  • Ignazio Abate
    38
    102
    2.00

    Ignazio Abate

    Added virtually nothing to his side's play in either half of the field and failed to cope well with the conditions.

  • Cristian Zaccardo
    45
    72
    2.50

    Cristian Zaccardo

    The veteran defender won virtually everything in the air despite the ominous threat of Klose on his back, but fell apart for two crucial Lazio attacks in the closing stages.

  • Sulley Muntari
    47
    98
    2.50

    Sulley Muntari

    Popped up everywhere in the attacking third during the Rossoneri's strong spells, and was admirable in his effort to get involved, though his end product was sorely lacking.

  • Valter Birsa
    35
    104
    2.50

    Valter Birsa

    Looked off the pace for the second game running, as he did not provide anything out of the ordinary on the flanks. Subbed in the second half.

  • Riccardo Montolivo
    145
    23
    3.00

    Riccardo Montolivo

    The heartbeat of the Rossoneri offensive effort today, as he facilitated the attack well with a series of incisive passes, while testing Marchetti more than one with shots on target from outside the box.

  • Nigel De Jong
    177
    16
    3.00

    Nigel De Jong

    A big reason that Lazio were not able to get much going in the opposition half of the field, as he charged about to put in a number of tackles and blocks to aid his side's defensive effort. Could have done better for Lazio's goal though.

  • Kaká
    461
    7
    4.00

    Kaká Top of the Match

    At the end of some of Milan's better first-half attacks, but his shooting let him down time and time again. There were no such concerns in the second half though, as he ripped in an unstoppable effort into the top corner from 18 yards out.

  • Mario Balotelli
    77
    104
    2.50

    Mario Balotelli

    Dropped deep to get involved in play, and set a few attacks in motion for his side with his hold up play and lay-offs. However, he lacked any real killer instinct himself, and looked rather blunted.

Substitutions

  • Andrea Poli
    116
    17
    3.00

    Andrea Poli

    Resourceful with the ball in the attacking third and nearly came close to having a late shot on goal.

  • Alessandro Matri
    38
    86
    2.50

    Alessandro Matri

    One or two flicks aside, the striker did not affect the course of the game.

  • Federico Marchetti
    30
    19
    3.00

    Federico Marchetti

    Left rooted to the spot by Kaka's strike, but made a strong save in either half to keep his side in the game.

  • Michael Ciani
    38
    17
    4.00

    Michael Ciani

    Won most of his aerial duels, and was also composed under pressure, heading a Marchetti spill back to the keeper with Balotelli breathing down his neck. Did his bit at the other end too, heading in a priceless equalizer.

  • Stefan Radu
    13
    21
    3.00

    Stefan Radu

    Picked up a careless yellow card in the first half, but did not let that affect his play as he was authoritative when going for the ball.

  • Luis Cavanda
    10
    23
    3.00

    Luis Cavanda

    Had a few interesting tussles with Kaka out on the flanks, and on a few occasions, was successful in shepherding the Brazilian away from danger.

  • Hernanes
    18
    48
    1.50

    Hernanes Flop of the Match

    Coughed up possession with regularity in the centre of the park, and did not last beyond the interval as his coach saw him as a weak link.

  • Alvaro Gonzalez
    11
    21
    3.00

    Alvaro Gonzalez

    Sufficient in possession out wide without ever providing a killer touch. Began to get more openings to shoot as the game opened up in the closing stages.

  • Cristian Ledesma
    6
    21
    3.00

    Cristian Ledesma

    Though he lost sight of Montolivo on a few occasions, he was still very effective in keeping play ticking for his side when they were on the ball.

  • Lorik Cana
    58
    15
    3.00

    Lorik Cana

    The Albanian performed admirably in the heart of the Lazio defence, making several clearances and tackles when play got congested inside the 18-yard area.

  • Antonio Candreva
    34
    18
    3.00

    Antonio Candreva

    His dribbling was a key factor in a few Lazio attacks, and with a pinpoint cross, he set up his team's equalizer for Ciani.

  • Miroslav Klose
    34
    25
    2.00

    Miroslav Klose

    Tried his hardest to challenge for the ball, but fluffed his lines on a glorious late chance, firing straight at the keeper.

  • Brayan Perea
    6
    27
    2.00

    Brayan Perea

    Hardly affected the game out wide, and it was a surprise that he lasted on the pitch as long as he did.

Substitutions

  • Ogenyi Onazi
    20
    16
    3.00

    Ogenyi Onazi

    One scintillating move in the second half helped to set Klose up for what should have been the game winner.

  • Sergio Floccari
    12
    19
    3.00

    Sergio Floccari

    Comfortable on the ball in the closing stages, helping out on the break.
