AC Milan played Sparta Praha in their second Europa League group stage fixture and came away with three vital points as they managed to keep another clean sheet in the competition. Tatarusanu replaced Donnarumma and largely untroubled getting a clean sheet to his name. The two Portugal internationals stood out as Rafael Leao scored again and newcomer Diogo Dalot bagged a goal and an assist. Brahi Diaz continued his fine form covering for Hakan Calhanoglu with another goal to open the scoring in the game after combining well with Zlatan Ibrahimovic on the counter. Ibrahimovic had a night to forget as he looked a little tired and missed a penalty when he slammed the crossbar, he still did manage to get an assist. Milan face LOSC Lille next week and should expect a tougher game than the previous two hence Stefano Pioli should be planning to start his first team.
