Notes On A 1-0 Away Win At Sparta Prague

A much changed team allowed the main players like Calhanoglu, Donnarumma and Romagnoli to get a rest.
Kalulu, Maldini, Colombo, Duarte and Conti all got rare starts.
Milan maintained a solid control of the game and Prague had perhaps two periods of decent possession in the middle of each half.
Kalulu impressed in the center of defense but Maldini and Colombo played like raw and inexperienced players.
Hauge scored the goal and made it look simple by beating the defender and goalkeeper in the far post. Dalot worked well on the left touchline to provide the assist.
Tatarusanu made two important save, one very late, to preserve the lead and allow Milan to win the group ahead of Lille who lost to Celtic.
Sparta had been down to 10 men for the final 13 minutes for a somewhat harsh red on Dominik Plechaty.
Leao made a come back from injury as a sub. Kessie and Diaz were also second half subs.
Barring the 34 year old Tatarusanu the average age of the starting 11 was just over 22 years.
