PLAYER RATINGS | Milan 1-1 Salernitana

Milan made history as they did not field any Italian player in the starting line-up in a Serie A match for their first time in their history but it was a night to forget for the Rossoneri fans.

It was the second Serie A game in a row without a win for Milan as the Rossoneri draw 1-1 against Salernitana at San Siro in the last game of match day 26.

The Rossoneri could not take advantage of Inter, Roma and Lazio’s missteps as they reached fourth place but are just one point ahead of the fifth place.

Olivier Giroud’s header broke the deadlock in the first half stoppage time, a few moments after Mike Maignan saved the day by winning the ball with a tackle just outside the box when Boulaye Dia was in on goal.

The Senegalese got his revenge in the second-half when he turned Bradaric’s low cross into Salernitana’s equalizer with a deflection past the French goalkeeper.

Milan believed to have a chance to win the game when the referee gave penalty for a soft foul on Ismael Bennacer, a decision which was then overturned by VAR.

There was a bit of bad luck too for the Rossoneri as Pierre Kalulu accidentally blocked Alessandro Florenzi’s deflection on the goal-line when Mexican keeper Guillermo Ochoa couldn’t save it anymore.
