Milan 4-2 Real Madrid
Menez 23′, El Shaarawy 30′ 48′ Pazzini 73′


Some thoughts on the game from forum member ACMILAN1983:

Montolivo’s return has transformed the game. The side was lacking a leader in midfield, he’s provided it and has given a real impetus to the play.

El Shaarawy was outstanding. Two goals aside, his touches, workrate and general confidence was clear to see. His link up with Menez was also excellent.

Menez in recent weeks is showing performances of a true CF. I really wasn’t expecting this one, but since the Napoli match his performances have been consistent and generally he’s playing as a proper forward.
