This must be a difficult match to watch for Arq. I wonder if Milan are able to hold onto this lead.

I have no idea how we are ahead.

We basically got manhandled for 15 minutes. Sure, Liverpool's goal was a deflection, but that was just one of several changes that could have gotten int. The penalty could have completely killed us (and it is the kind of very harsh penalties I hate), but Maignan proved a worthy replacement to Donarrumma, and he is the only reason we were still in the game.

Tomori did really well to amend his mistake, and played really well after that.

Somehow, we had our own Istanbul moments, which is fitting considering the fact that the fortunes of both teams are reversed compared to that CL final.

Basically, we are extremely lucky to be in this position, and we are probably going to lose anyway in the second half.

Tactically, I think Rebic and Giroud playing would have been better. Saladmaker is not carrying the ball well on the right, and is not defending that much as well.

Also, this is probably Calabria's worst match in a long time, which is understandable considering the fact that Liverpool simply has better fullbacks (Theo is also very subdued as a result).

Our midfield is the biggest issue so far. Kessie and Bennacer are getting easily bullied. Kessie should look at this as an auditon FFS.

Calabria with his worst match in so long. Defensively acceptable, but his passes have been truly terrible.

Liverpool 3-2 Milan.

At least for a while, we had some hope. Honestly proud of the performance outside of the first 15 minutes.

Simply put, the better team on the night won. The better team in general won. To beat them, we would need everyone playing on their best day.

Good luck to Liverpool. Now I am hoping they beat everyone else in Anfield as well.

Prime Liverpool, glad it didn't bite us in the end. Milan extremely clinical absolutely insane kudos on turning the game in a couple of minutes. We can still work together to get rid of Thugletico Madshite, they drew. Get in, the CL dream pairing going through is on.

Outclassed by Liverpool in every department. first 21 minutes, liverpool had like 15 shots 7 shots on goal to Milan none. Kessie and Bennacer pressed and surrounded, succumbed to pressure too easily. Saelemaekers non existent for much period of time, atleast leao provided some threat with pace.

I dont blame Tomori for first goal. Kjaer wasnt bad either, its just Liverpool were too good.
Showed that, it was not the question of Liverpool winning the game easily, but how far and badly milan has fallen for 7 years with no CL and how the football has moved on from them with quality, pace, intensity. To get to that level means Milan has much work to do than "just qualifying for CL"


If anything from this loss, hopefully milan uses this liverpool side as a benchmark that they need to be on and show what they have learned and what kind of response they would do against Atletico and Porto.

Liverpool fast, quality, intensity, quick thinking and intelligent football all over the pitch. the lob ball pass for Mo salah was enough to show that milan could have 7 players at the back but Liverpool shows how to break that. Impressive stuff.

It probably is good idea for Pioli at some point to play 3 def at back with theo and calabria as wingback to help kessie and bennacer (or tonali) to add bit of a number in midfield because today it showed (also against Lille) that kessie and bennacer were really outnumbered in midfield when there was little to no help coming from their surroundings when they were pressed by Liverpool players.

have to say Liverpool was too good. in fact I felt like Liverpool has ability to get the game go even intense and quick (i know they do this with EPL clubs, and also against barcelona) thought they played too kind and relaxed at some point that milan were no threat.

Just a good lesson for milan after 7 years of absence. Also one Liverpool fan was a real class, when theo went off the commercial board and he got off his seat to help theo up.

The only reason we broke you down and managed to score after 1-2 was because you played 4 at the back and weren't 10 men down. I am always in favor of upping Liverpool but today was an example of how good teams don't care you take 20 shots in 10 mins and how Klopp's squad is clueless on how to break that. If Milan had moved to a 3-5-2 at HT, the game would have ended 1-2 to Milan. I still think you should take heart from this game.

yea definitely. I mean, if anything, Liverpool can do better you know and I know this. They may have had a some blip in concentration but quality that they can turn around was too much for Milan.
I appreciate that, milan can take some positive things out of this. I mean may be only 2-3 players has played CL and no one else, and milan are absentee in CL for 7 years by their own doing. Liverpool taught a good lesson here that lot of work is to be done, and milan are still in embryonic stage in their development.

I agree that, a little bit of bodies in the midfield with 3-5-2 in expense of Saelaemakers, would have done some good because, lets be honest, milan couldnt do worse and even if they did they got nothing to loose with 3 man back but atleast they can have some players to help with buildup.

Good game good lesson, Congratulations to u guys, good match.

The problem with playing against Liverpool is that they're one of those teams who play with five forwards in possession. Your defense will always get numerically outmatched with a back 4. Especially when you have clowns like Leao who can't defend as your wingers. I don't think we've ever defended in a back 5 so even if we switched we just would have invited more pressure and still lost.

Though the way Liverpool dominated in the first twenty minutes my word. That's the kind of quality you strive for your team to reach.

lets say if we have 3 man defense supported by wingbacks, i think it would be numerically still would be beneficial when required support for defense and midfield during transition. that being said, Liverpool are too much of a quality.
but on a long term I would like 3-4-1-2 or 3-5-2 to be tested.

Too often in big stage have we witnessed bennacer and kessie to be overwhelmed and outdone. Lille and Liverpool.

I guess the quality that Liverpool has, that milan need to reach is impossible because of for one thing italian teams are nowhere near capable of outdoing EPL in terms of investments to bring quality players. Nevertheless in terms of experience and the feel for the game on highest level, i guess this is a good experience for many.

i dont think our club underestimated any opponents in this group anyway, we know milan are weaker than liverpool and atletico and hope is that we can salvage something against porto or at home against atletico.

Has Pioli ever tried a midfield three of Bennacer, Tonali, and Kessie?

Can't lie I was impressed with our insistence on being positive and building from the back. That's what going back to being a big club is like. We will never face a team better than Liverpool at pressing, but we still tried to play through them.

We are on the right track. None of this United cowardice where you park the bus any chance you get.

i guess it has been tried with Krunic instead ...
I would keep my reservation whether milan is on right track or not, with the response from upcoming games against Atletico Porto and second leg against Liverpool.

i didnt watch the manutd milan game so i cant comment on it. that being said, i am somewhat curious if there would be some better ways milan can play with 3-5-2 or 3-4-2-1 or 3-4-3, just curious.
i dont think pioli would just abandon 4-2-3-1, it has worked for milan in serie a, and perhaps if played with intensity and concentration i agree that building from the back and with pace it did cause few problems to liverpool but thats just 10 mins.

safe to say milan cant do that for entire 90 mins. players even admitted that (calabria) but we will see. perhaps, its bettter off keeping expectation low for milan for now.

agreed. intensity wise totally outdone by liverpool. when liverpool can afford to have van dijk, tiago, mane on the bench and still have top players outdo us says everything.

robertson and trent on flanks were crazy too. i thought defensively calabria did good, offensively he couldnt provide much because saelemakers just isnt supportive in terms of anyway. theo was under similar position because he just couldnt abandon defensive duties when salah and trent is constantly pushing but he still provided that threat nonetheless, albeit not too long.

EPL money wins
