By Vasil Kotsev

  • Doni
    29
    16
    3.00

    Doni

    Had very little to do, but was prone to the occasional concentration lapse as evidenced in the eighth minute. Blocked a powerful free-kick by Ibrahimovic in the 64th minute, and generally he had a decent game.

  • John Arne Riise
    35
    11
    3.00

    John Arne Riise

    Worked hard down the flank, but was pinned back for most of the game. Was not much of a threat in the attacking third, but did well defensively.

  • Juan
    122
    21
    3.50

    Juan Top of the Match

    An impenetrable wall in the centre of Roma's defence. Pulled off some impeccable sliding tackles and blocks to frustrate Milan upfront.

  • Nicolas Burdisso
    34
    14
    3.00

    Nicolas Burdisso

    Showed great positioning and was clean in the tackle. Distributed the ball well from the back.

  • Marco Cassetti
    48
    14
    3.00

    Marco Cassetti

    Rarely troubled defensively and that allowed him to freely bomb forward, which he did superbly. Gave Zambrotta a torrid time with his dribbling and flicks, and even set-up Roma's best chance in the first half.

  • Mirko Vučinić
    39
    45
    2.50

    Mirko Vučinić Flop of the Match

    Added another nightmarish miss to his collection in the first half, and looked short on confidence all game. A match to forget for the Montenegro striker.

  • David Pizarro
    44
    16
    3.00

    David Pizarro

    Distributed the ball superbly, and tackled well. Made a few great runs and impressed with his dribbling.

  • Fabio Henrique Simplicio
    26
    19
    2.50

    Fabio Henrique Simplicio

    The tireless midfielder did very well in the centre of the pitch and showed decent work-rate. Even got forward well, and almost grabbed the opener just before the end of the first half.

  • Matteo Brighi
    24
    16
    0.00

    Matteo Brighi

    Picked up an injury midway through the first period.

  • Rodrigo Taddei
    45
    26
    3.00

    Rodrigo Taddei

    Taddei has rarely impressed, but the Brazilian silenced his doubters with a fine performance. He was confident in possession, and made a string of good passes.

  • Francesco Totti
    100
    19
    3.00

    Francesco Totti

    Once again at the centre of everything good for Roma. His movement off the ball was timed to perfection, his passes were well-weighted and his flicks were wonderful. A great performance.

Substitutions

  • Aleandro Rosi
    28
    25
    3.00

    Aleandro Rosi

    The youngster replaced Matteo Brighi early in the game, but failed to shine and was replaced by GIanluca Caprari in the second half.

  • Gianluca Caprari
    31
    15
    2.50

    Gianluca Caprari

    A late substitution.

  • Marco Borriello
    52
    17
    2.50

    Marco Borriello

    Failed to make an impact upfront in a disappointing cameo, the highlight of which was his shocking haircut.

  • Christian Abbiati
    144
    11
    3.00

    Christian Abbiati

    Pulled off one particularly good save to deny Vucinic in the first half, and generally had a great game. Commanded his area well.

  • Gianluca Zambrotta
    64
    43
    3.00

    Gianluca Zambrotta

    Had a lot of trouble coping with Cassetti in the first half, and was shaky in defence. His contribution in attack was non-existent.

  • Thiago Silva
    164
    9
    3.50

    Thiago Silva

    Aside from a couple minor mistakes, he had a very good game. Strong in the tackle, unbeatable in the air, and precise in his passing.

  • Alessandro Nesta
    165
    15
    3.00

    Alessandro Nesta

    The veteran had an excellent outing, once again proving that he still has it. Struggled for pace at times, but made up for that with great positioning.

  • Ignazio Abate
    75
    77
    3.00

    Ignazio Abate

    Not very convincing at the back as he made a number of mistakes. Worked hard down the flank, but his crossing was not impressive either.

  • C. Seedorf
    136
    17
    3.00

    C. Seedorf

    After a rather anonymous first half, the veteran Dutchman stepped up his game to finish the match on a high note. Threaded a number of good through passes and showed some nice touches on the ball.

  • Mark van Bommel
    147
    30
    3.00

    Mark van Bommel

    At his destructive best today as he fought for every ball and was always there to put Francesco Totti under pressure. Distributed the ball well, and tackled hard.

  • Gennaro Ivan Gattuso
    85
    51
    2.50

    Gennaro Ivan Gattuso

    A toothless performance from the midfield enforcer, who, aside from injuring Matteo Brighi, contributed very little to the game. Substituted for Massimo Ambrosini at half-time.

  • Kevin-Prince Boateng
    124
    21
    3.00

    Kevin-Prince Boateng

    The Ghanian was once again influential in an advanced role, but his wasted chance in the second half takes some points off his mark. Passed well, but his tackling was not of high standard in this game as he was late on more than one occasion.

  • Zlatan Ibrahimovic
    131
    33
    2.50

    Zlatan Ibrahimovic

    Spent a lot of time complaining about fouls, but did show a lot of desire upfront. Had a powerful free-kick saved in the second half, and generally had a decent game.

  • Robinho
    107
    25
    3.00

    Robinho

    The ex-Real Madrid drifted in and out of the game, and was unlucky to hit the right post after the break. Was very dangerous on the ball, and impressed with his technique.

Substitutions

  • Alexandre Pato
    105
    27
    2.50

    Alexandre Pato

    Came on late in the game, and failed to influence the match in any way.

  • Massimo Ambrosini
    110
    20
    3.00

    Massimo Ambrosini

    The midfielder delivered an outstanding cameo after coming on for Gennaro Gattuso. Passed the ball well, and created the best chance for AC Milan in the second half.
