Player Ratings: AC Milan 2-2 Palermo Goal.com analyses the players who featured in the Coppa Italia semi-final first leg tie at San Siro By Livio Caferoglu AC Milan 2 vs 2 Palermo Played April 20, 2011 7:45:00 PM BST Stadio Giuseppe Meazza — Milano Referee: A. De Marco http://www.goal.com/en/match/57089/ac-milan-vs-palermo/player-ratings AC Milan Marco Amelia 6.0 The Italian 'keeper had a decent game between the sticks, although he could have done better for the second goal from Hernandez. Luca Antonini 7.0 Always looking to get forward and make an impact, the full-back put in a industrial shift and gave Cassani a hard time. Sokratis Papastathopoulos Flop of the Match 5.0 The summer arrival from Genoa was suspect in defence, at fault for the first goal and not inspiring much confidence at the back. Thiago Silva 6.5 The Brazilian was his usual commanding self at the heart of defence, making some important interventions and bailing out his centre-back partner on a few occasions. Massimo Oddo 7.0 The veteran right-back was fantastic and forced Balzaretti to defend for most of the match. Set up his side's first goal with a wonderful, deep cross and put in more dangerous balls during the game. Mathieu Flamini 5.5 Provided bite in the middle of the park, but not much else. Struggled to contain the likes of Pastore and Ilicic, who dominated the midfield. Andrea Pirlo 6.0 The World Cup winner made his return, but was quiet for the most part bar an impressive late effort. Kevin-Prince Boateng 6.5 The most positive player in Milan's midfield, he offered endeavour, enterprise and a will to get forward and support the attack. Substituted late on for Gattuso. Clarence Seedorf 5.0 A very quiet match from the Dutchman who was replaced early in the second half, with Allegri not a happy man in regards to his performance after being overrun badly. Antonio Cassano 6.5 Showed glimpses of his talent and made several forward-thinking passes for his team-mates to latch onto. Was replaced by Robinho, who made a greater impact. Zlatan Ibrahimovic 7.5 A triumphant return to form for the Swede, who scored his first goal in three months for the Rossoneri. Was involved in much of their forward play, and provided a great presence in attack. • Substitutions Urby Emanuelson 6.5 Scored the equaliser and was far more effective than his fellow Dutchman. Robinho 7.0 A fine substitute's performance from the Brazilian forward, who was more ruthless in his approach going forward than Cassano. Gennaro Ivan Gattuso 5.5 A late cameo from the ex-Rangers man, whose yellow card means he will miss the second-leg. Palermo Salvatore Sirigu 7.0 An impressive goalkeeping display, as he pulled off a string of vital saves to keep his side in the tie. Federico Balzaretti 5.5 The left-back struggled against Oddo, who forced the newly-capped Italy player back on many occasions and thus his attacking game was severely affected. Cesare Bovo 6.5 A solid performance from the Roma youth product, who was far more comfortable than his defensive partner. Dorin Goian 5.0 The Romanian got his positioning horribly wrong for Milan's first goal, and did not have the most convincing of games at the back. Mattia Cassani 5.5 Very much in the same vein as Balzaretti, he was outclassed at times by his opponent Antonini in the full-back position, and gave away a couple of needless free-kicks. Antonio Nocerino 6.0 A reasonable midfield display and showed neat touches on the ball and sprayed some positive balls to team-mates. Afriyie Acquah 5.5 A quiet game from the Ghanaian, who did not make much of an impact in midfield and struggled to provide a defensive shield. Giulio Migliaccio 6.5 A typically industrious and combative performance from the midfielder. Tireless in his approach, if not terribly productive. Javier Pastore Top of the Match 8.0 A dazzling display which saw the Argentine involved in virtually every Palermo attack, coinciding with a well-taken goal. Set up the second and gave the Milan defence many problems with his flair and technique. Abel Mathías Hernández 7.0 Showed his explosive nature once again with a great finish for his side's second and played on the shoulder of the hosts defence well, showing positive movement throughout. Mauricio Pinilla 6.5 His importance to the team is growing rapidly with another fine targetman performance and expertly set-up Pastore's goal. Taken off at half-time for Ilicic. • Substitutions Josip Iličič 7.5 A superb second-half performance which formed one half of the Pastore-Ilicic show. Linked up extremely well with his Argentine team-mate and showed great enterprise and will to get involved. Fabrizio Miccoli 6.0 Late cameo from the ex-Perugia hitman.
