Semplici Donnarumma made the difference

first_imgLeonardo Semplici maintains SPAL could have mustered a point from the Milan game but for the brilliance of goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.The Spallini had taken the lead through Andrea Petagna, but Milan were too strong for them as they overturned the deficit to win 2-1 thanks to Samu Castillejo and Gonzalo Higuain“We played the game we needed to. Milan were in good shape and their strikers, including Suso, would shift the balance to cause us problems,” the Coach told Football Italia.Semplici warns SPAL as they play Atalanta tonight Manuel R. Medina – August 25, 2019 The SPAL manager, Leonardo Semplici, believes their rival tonight is “one of the strongest sides in Italy as they begging their 2019-2020 campaign.“In the second half, we really deserved a point and Gianluigi Donnarumma rescued the result for Milan at the end.“It’s disappointing because not every team comes to San Siro and plays with this degree of confidence, so leaving with a defeat inevitably creates regrets.“We had found a tactical way to shut down Suso, whereas with 3-5-2 we had struggled with our positioning. Now we go into 2019 and must secure our place in Serie A because we’ve proved we are not just passing through.”last_img
