Goal.com was on hand at Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris as neither side could capitalise on their chances, leaving goalkeepers to take the plaudits in this Serie A clash

By Simon Harrison

  • Sergio Romero
    29
    7
    3.50

    Sergio Romero

    Made some fantastic saves to deny both Niang and Kevin-Prince Boateng.

  • Andrea Costa

    3.00

    Andrea Costa

    Solid performance, and performed well against the pacey Niang.

  • Angelo Palombo
    14
    8
    3.50

    Angelo Palombo

    Worked tirelessly and tenaciously to prevent Milan from settling on the ball whenever he was in the vicinity.

  • Daniele Gastaldello

    3.50

    Daniele Gastaldello

    Was unfortunate not to put his team ahead in the first half, but remained solid defensively throughout.

  • Marcelo Estigarribia
    6
    11
    2.50

    Marcelo Estigarribia

    Failed to impose himself very often in what was a disappointing performance.

  • Pedro Obiang
    24
    6
    3.50

    Pedro Obiang

    Kept Milan's central midfield combination of Boateng and Flamini quiet, whilst being far more comfortable on the ball himself.

  • Andrea Poli
    31
    8
    4.00

    Andrea Poli

    Kept the ball well and distributed well, and was the hub of the Sampdoria side.

  • Lorenzo De Silvestri
    14
    5
    3.50

    Lorenzo De Silvestri

    Went close with a couple of long range efforts, and also worked hard to ensure that Milan profited little down his flank.

  • Nenad Krsticic
    9
    9
    3.00

    Nenad Krsticic

    Kept the Milan midfield quiet with his team-mates, in what was an efficient performance from the Serbian.

  • Eder
    10
    6
    3.00

    Eder

    Was unfortunate to meet Abbiati at his best in the first half, as several of his goal-bound efforts were brilliantly denied by the visiting goalkeeper.

  • Mauro Icardi
    13
    11
    3.00

    Mauro Icardi

    Failed to take a fantastic chance to capitalise on poor Milan defending, but was full of running.

Substitutions

  • Fernando Tissone
    5
    9
    2.50

    Fernando Tissone

    Replaced Poli, but had little time to grow into the game.

  • Christian Abbiati
    148
    6
    4.00

    Christian Abbiati Top of the Match

    Prevented his side from falling behind with a host of solid saves, especially those to deny Eder in the first half.

  • Mattia De Sciglio
    102
    13
    3.00

    Mattia De Sciglio

    Spent more time in Sampdoria's half than his own, but his poor decision making at times prevented him from having a greater impact on the match.

  • Philippe Mexes
    86
    25
    3.00

    Philippe Mexes

    Was strong in the air, and coupled with Zapata, prevented Sampdoria from profiting from long balls.

  • Cristian Zapata
    118
    6
    3.00

    Cristian Zapata

    Will be relieved that Eder's shot which he deflected didn't nestle in the back of his own net, but was a dominant aerial force.

  • Kevin Constant
    85
    27
    3.00

    Kevin Constant

    His physicality allowed him to deal with threats efficiently, and he remained relatively solid.

  • Kevin-Prince Boateng
    35
    95
    2.00

    Kevin-Prince Boateng

    Poor game for the Ghanaian, who failed to make any real impact on the match, other than not managing to bundle home a goal at the back post from a decent centre by Bojan.

  • Riccardo Montolivo
    109
    17
    2.50

    Riccardo Montolivo

    Tested Romero a couple of times with long-range efforts, and performed at a level above those around him in central midfield.

  • Massimo Ambrosini
    73
    30
    3.00

    Massimo Ambrosini

    Forced off through injury after 25 minutes, prior to his thigh problem the veteran failed to impose himself on the game whatsoever.

  • M'Baye Niang
    128
    16
    2.50

    M'Baye Niang

    Went missing in the first half, but showed moments of individual brilliance after the break.

  • Bojan Krkic
    66
    64
    2.50

    Bojan Krkic

    Not his best night, as his shots generally found row Z of the stands as opposed to Romero's goal.

  • Stephan El Shaarawy
    77
    78
    2.00

    Stephan El Shaarawy Flop of the Match

    Not his most impressive game, as the young forward failed to get on the ball as much as he would have liked to, and his substitution was justified.

Substitutions

  • Mathieu Flamini
    86
    24
    3.00

    Mathieu Flamini

    Carried on from Ambrosini in the sense that the Frenchman failed to really create anything from central midfield.

  • Robinho
    58
    70
    2.00

    Robinho

    Added an injection of pace and spark into the side, but failed to make his quality count.
