AC Milan took on Spezia away for the first time in our history and got a slap in the face. Milan went into the game uninspired and were rightly humiliated by the Serie A newcomers in a horrific performance where none of the players or the manager showed up. Stefano Pioli chose to throw in Leao over Rebic despite the latter red hot form, he selected two players just back from injury despite this being an extremely physical game tossing in Kjaer and Bennacer into the fire. Milan could not string passes together and collapsed under the pressure. Dalot was terrible and Hernandez showed his vulnerability as a defender as he so often does in games we lose. We did not register a single shot on target. Let that sink in. Romagnoli nervy as usual leading to the first goal and Meite caught napping for the second. It’s a tough loss but hopefully that spurs a big response in the derby otherwise we are in trouble with a downward spiral looking likely given the four losses in 45 days in 2021.
