The Rossoneri’s first half was marked by offensive inefficiency, with the hosts unable to capitalise on their chances, which were often created by Theo and Rafael Leao, who looked the hosts’ most inspired men.

PLAYER OF THE MATCH – Theo Hernandez
The Frenchman made his presence felt since the opening minutes when his offensive raids down the left-hand flank seemed to cause havoc in Sassuolo’s defence. Romagnoli’s header aside, though, none of his teammates could make the most of yet another positive display from Theo, who seemed crushed by discouragement in the second half just like the rest of the team.
