MILAN, GAZZETTA – As the Gazzetta reports today, Milan did their best, but they have not shone in Salzburg to date.
Milan, Gazzetta: “The usual ones don’t shine and you can see it in the Champions League”
“Accustomed to the limelight, this time Leao and Giroud remain in the shadows. Rafa tries to light up but is often stopped (ultimately also by the post): he is not as dazzling as in the derby. The same goes for Olivier: he had conquered the spotlight even in the last match against Inter, while yesterday he was alone and gloomy in the area. Milan relied on their best attacking men, but they remained blunt: the heroes of the derby were less heroic. Or maybe it’s the Champions League that is even more ruthless: they didn’t give Rafa the space for his first away goal in the competition, while the Salzburg defense blocked all supplies for Giroud. The workaholics from the Rossoneri area did not complete the job this time. Rafa is still promoted: he assisted him for the draw. Giroud postponed to September: in a week, at San Siro against Dinamo Zagreb, he will already have the opportunity to raise the average of the marks in the report card. Not even Origi, who in recent weeks (thanks to an injury) has worked less hard, has solved the practice: he entered the race and missed an opportunity in recovery. After the celebrations reserved for Leao and Giroud in the last weekend, Milan hoped they could win other covers: but no, the Champions League has yet to discover Leao while Olivier, king of great Europe with Chelsea, yesterday had forgotten the crown. The throne this time is not very enviable: first among the Rossoneri who have made less ”.
