    Steady between the posts, saving a handful of efforts in the second half as Milan tried to ramp up the pressure.

  • Dario Dainelli

    Dario Dainelli Top of the Match

    Blocked everything that came his way from Milan, proving a rock right at the heart of the Chievo defence.

  • Bostjan Cesar

    Bostjan Cesar

    Unwavering against the threat of Poli and Kaka, hardly putting a foot wrong all game at the back.

  • Manuel Pamić

    2.50

    Manuel Pamić

    Helped out a lot in defence and got forward when needed to support the rare Chievo attack. A solid display to help his team to a result.

  • Gennaro Sardo

    Gennaro Sardo

    Fell apart late on as Milan were able to breach his flank a number of times.

  • Nicolas Sebastien Frey

    Nicolas Sebastien Frey

    Won virtually all of his individual defensive duels and adopted a safety first approach throughout.

  • Ivan Radovanovic

    3.50

    Ivan Radovanovic

    Left it all out on the pitch and though he did not see much of the ball, he still positioned himself well to make some fine defensive plays.

  • Marcelo Estigarribia
    13

    3.00

    Marcelo Estigarribia

    At the heart of his side's best chances of the first half, testing Abbiati with a piledriver. Surprisingly withdrawn at half-time after a promising opening period.

  • Luca Rigoni
    9
    5
    3.00

    Luca Rigoni

    Put in countless tackles and interceptions in the middle of the park to help stymie the threat of the opposition.

  • Alberto Paloschi

    Alberto Paloschi

    Nearly stole the headlines against his parent club with a late run through and finish, but it was ruled out for a narrow offside.

  • Cyril Thereau

    2.50

    Cyril Thereau

    Held the ball up well and was involved in a few good moments going forward for his side. The service was not always there, but he toiled on nonetheless.

Substitutions

  • Perparim Hetemaj

    Perparim Hetemaj

    Held the ball up well and won a free kick from Montolivo that got the midfielder sent off.

  • Sergio Pellissier

    Sergio Pellissier

    Sent off late on for protesting to the referee over a booking.

  • Christian Abbiati
    73
    22
    3.50

    Christian Abbiati

    Saved a shot from Estigarribia well, and pushed away a Thereau drive in the second half. A solid display.

  • Philippe Mexes
    84
    19
    3.50

    Philippe Mexes

    A sturdy operator at the back, putting in a few strong challenges to thwart the opposition and getting his side out of trouble when needed.

  • Cristian Zapata
    37
    53
    3.00

    Cristian Zapata

    Quietly went about his business at the back, and though he was not often tested, he still took care of what little came his way with due professionalism.

  • Ignazio Abate
    51
    50
    3.00

    Ignazio Abate

    Though he pushed forward at every opportunity and worked himself into some promising positions, his end product was decidedly lacking all game.

  • Sulley Muntari
    17
    102
    2.50

    Sulley Muntari

    Added little to his side's display in either half of the field, looking average on the ball and seeing a few shots easily blocked by the opposition defence.

  • Andrea Poli
    92
    20
    3.00

    Andrea Poli

    Tried to get on the end of many chances, but his radar was decidedly off, missing the target on each occasion.

  • Riccardo Montolivo
    33
    87
    2.50

    Riccardo Montolivo

    His passing was efficient, but not exactly incisive, as he was forced to play conservatively far too often thanks to the staunch defensive attention of the hosts. Sent off late on for two bookable offences.

  • Kaká
    237
    15
    3.50

    Kaká

    Forced to the periphery of the game at times as his influence was curtailed by his inability to find space in the congested Chievo ranks.

  • Urby Emanuelson
    75
    42
    3.00

    Urby Emanuelson

    Attempted to get forward whenever he could, often choosing to run with the ball rather than crossing to a team-mate. It proved to be an ineffective strategy, as he rarely beat his man.

  • Nigel De Jong
    115
    13
    3.00

    Nigel De Jong

    Toiled diligently in the middle of the park, but was guilty of a few dreadful giveaways, including one that nearly led to a Chievo goal.

  • Alessandro Matri
    32
    151
    1.50

    Alessandro Matri Flop of the Match

    Worked hard to chase down lost causes up front, but could not do anything useful with the ball as a series of attacks ended at his feet.

Substitutions

  • Kevin Constant
    36
    64
    3.50

    Kevin Constant

    Set Robinho on his way for the best chance of the game with a good pass.

  • Robinho

    Robinho

    Added a spark to Milan off the bench, but struck his side's best chance of the game onto the post.
