Notes On 2-1 Derby Win
Ibra with another brace, one from a penalty he won himself and another courtesy a great assist and cross by Leao, is on fire. Having just returned from a COVID-19 diagnosis and isolation it is remarkable.
Romagnoli, back from a long layoff, struggled in marking and tracking Romelu Lukaku in particular.
Theo was pinned back and beaten by Inter’s Achraf Hakimi. This will provide a reference for Milan’s future opponents. Not all teams have a player of Hakimi’s quality but Pioli must be ready with a plan, whether that means using Krunic again, as in this derby, remains questionable.
Kessie and Kjaer continue to star for the team.
