Very good half. Need to stay on the course and score few more if we can.

what a waste. i dont think bilan can play any worse in 2nd half and we just can score 1 goal when we are in total control of the game?

If Pioli doesn't bring on Leao and Rebic and switch to a 4-3-3 then the only logical conclusion is that he's trying to get fired
They probably spent the entire week, since their last defeat, preparing for this game in this current set up. If he reverts back to their regular system he also looks bad.

The first half looked like a preseason friendly against FC Lugano. Sticking with these tactics would be nothing short of sabotage

Moment they switch back to their leaky 4-3-3 and push for goals we'll punish them severely. I think Pioli just wants to avoid a shameful scoreline so he won't take as many risks as you guys think

Obv Pioli has no quality personnel like Bennacer in mid, but why the hell he chose 3atb, in the supercup 2nd half they atleast had 65% possession and shots on goal. It was their usual 4231. Today completed passes 312 vs 126. Complete zero.

I would be really mad if we F it up somehow. Total control.

As others have alluded to, they gave us an uncontested half thanks to Pioli's 352 massively backfiring. We should have more than just the 1 goal to show for our dominance but to be honest, we did not push as hard as I would've liked, especially with their lack of countering threat. Now they will (surely) bring on Leao and revert back to their regular 433/4231, not to mention (presumably) come out with a lot of energy. Second half could get nervy.

Leao will come in and they switch back to old formation.

We still have some missed passes but good first half overall

At the same time, they will leave some space behind which can be beneficial to us. Hopefully we will be more hungry to score in the second half, because first half's effort was not enough.

Agreed. We haven't been good. Dzeko and hakan in particular not been good. We should have been going much more at them.

However, I just can't see milan coming out with energy. They look so afraid and the way pioli has set them up has filtered through to them.

Anyway, Leao or not milan are trash. Let's go out and put a stamp on this result!
