Inter and AC Milan played an awful goalless draw at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in the first leg of the Coppa Italia semifinal.

In what was the worst Milan derby performance from both teams, the Nerazzurri can consider themselves slightly lucky not to have lost after a horrid performance.

The Rossoneri have a slight advantage going into the second leg now having not conceded in the first leg when they were the home team, as the away goal rule still applies this season in the Coppa Italia.

Samir Handanovic – 6: Bad distribution throughout, invited pressure with his risky choices of passes. Made amends for it with some decent saves this time.

Milan Skriniar – 5,5: Fans of our rivals call him the butcher, and to be fair, he did some butchering on Milan’s attackers tonight. Not one of his best games.

Stefan de Vrij – 5,5: In obvious downward spiral of form, again let down by what was once his strong suit – reading of the game. Wandered in no-man’s land too often.

Alessandro Bastoni – 6,5: Perhaps the only one showing some ambition, with his forays forward that made him a mezzala, a right fullback and a left centre-back all in one. Inter’s MOTM.

Denzel Dumfries – 5,5: Not much success going against Theo Hernandez tonight, luckily for him Theo was not on his best either. Too little quality in attack, leaky in defense.

Nicolo Barella – 5: Hugely anonymous, and that’s an understatement. Can’t remember one involvement in anything remotely good. Worrying state of Nicolo. Wake up man.

Marcelo Brozovic – 5: Not sharp as usual, Krunic marked him out of the match. Not himself when dealing with constant pressure. Same Pioli tactic as the last time worked again.

Hakan Calhanoglu – 5,5: The least lousy of our midfielders, yet incredibly underwhelming still. His deliveries did provide the most danger we posed, so a half mark up.

Ivan Perisic – 6: Barely a 6, but did slightly better than all of 5.5s. Not too many runs at opposition, but when he did so he actually managed a good cross or two.

Edin Dzeko – 5,5: If we were ever going to score tonight, it would most probably be from his header after Hakan set-piece. Did not happen tho, but at least he tried.

Lautaro Martinez – 5: I liked that one time he fought for a lost ball and won. Other than that I vaguely remember he made a telling contribution other than that foul. Isolated.

Arturo Vidal – 5,5: He’s not a Vidal of old, but an old Vidal. Couldn’t be more invisible than Barella was, but at times you kinda wish he was. Blended in perfectly.

Alexis Sanchez – 6: Showed some spark, tried running around in spaces and all, but the team wasn’t there to build anything, so it was pointless.

Joaquin Correa – N/A: Back after his injury, yet to be determined if that is a good thing or not. As always, little contribution, but this time too little time to rate him.

Matteo Darmian – N/A: A 88th minute sub. Not enough time to rate him.

Robin Gosens – N/A: Made his debut as a 88th minute sub. Hopefully soon back to his fitness levels and in his form of old.

Simone Inzaghi – 4,5: Did not like one bit the lack of ambition. Pioli used the same tactics, he did not adjust to it, just went along to cause as little damage as possible.

Maurizio Mariani – 6: Not great, not terrible. No major errors, did his job with little fuss. Not a hard job on his hands.

Inter – 5: Derby that won’t live long in the memory of any set of fans. Inter looked far from a jointed team, the only positive was not conceding, somehow.
