The Rossoneri defeated in London: the real difference was physical. Chelsea came first on all balls, won almost all tackles. When you have these differences you have to help you with a technique that this time Milan was unable to find
It is correct to talk about Milan in London to consider the absentees due to injuries, but also to understand that the wrong appearances that were on the field weighed much more. There was not Leao, not enough to cause her habitual risk talent. Leao missed especially Theo Hernandez, that crazy and violent space that knows how to hang for him at the beginning of the action. But there was no Bennacer, closed between Kovacic and Mount, immediately nervous because a rational player ended up in an unreasonable game. missed Tomori as has been happening for a while. especially missed De Ketelaere. Not his fault for the little disaster, but all his the prolonged modesty of too many performances. I thought the big game in Europe would shake him and help him regain a feeling with his class, but he never even appeared.
The real difference was physical. Chelsea came first on all balls, won almost all tackles. When you have these differences you have to help you with a technique that this time Milan was unable to find. Defeat is not a problem, at Chelsea you can lose even with all the starters.
the game only suffered, full of errors to send a bad signal. If De Ketelaere doesn’t join the group quickly, Tonali and Bennacer will always have one more opponent. And I will long miss Saelemaekers who has always been the dark balancer of the team. The group is complicated, but Salzburg leads, not Real. The opponent remains Chelsea. A basic assessment also remains for Pioli: four points in three games are few in a group like this. It was fair to expect more overall.
Meanwhile, Rabiot takes on almost the entire responsibility of relaunching Juve. Curious game, dominated by a growing Juve, then re-balanced by the entrance of the four Jewish players who had finished their religious fast at 19.30, and then entered the second half by weighing on the game. For a time Di Maria’s ideas dominated, his filtering balls that Juve, without him, does not have in their repertoire. A good result, a new start, two dead points taken from both opponents who beat her in the first few days. Not a final solution, but it was the only one to start a serious chase. Final curiosity: Haaland scores two goals conceded and is substituted at the end of the half. the hurry of the calendar, but enough for the boy.
