    • 11' Abate is operating almost as a right winger in this game with all of Milan's meaningful attacks coming from that channel so far
    • 10' Simone Bentivoglio finds space for a shot which he strikes well and Thiago Silva deflects the ball behind for a corner kick
    • 9' Bari consistently with at least 10 men behind the ball in the opening minutes at the San Siro. This will be a tough test of their defensive resolve against the League leaders.
