Could not help the Lazio goal, and dealt with whatever else was flung his way, despite the potentially treacherous conditions.
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.
M. 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.
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.
Added virtually nothing to his side's play in either half of the field and failed to cope well with the conditions.
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.
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.
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.
N. 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.
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.
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.
Left rooted to the spot by Kaka's strike, but made a strong save in either half to keep his side in the game.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Tried his hardest to challenge for the ball, but fluffed his lines on a glorious late chance, firing straight at the keeper.
Hardly affected the game out wide, and it was a surprise that he lasted on the pitch as long as he did.
