The Rossoneri leave with a bitter taste in their mouth after the home draw on matchday 17 in Serie A. The Giallorossi took full advantage of their two set-pieces to draw level in a game that saw AC Milan dominate for large parts, but were surprised and pegged back late on. For Coach Pioli's side however, positive signs remain given the performance from his players. Here are the main stats and facts coming from the game:
1- Rafael Leão is one of three players to have already scored at least five goals and provided at least five assists in Serie A this season (Kvaratskhelia and Barella the other two).
2- Sandro Tonali has been involved in at least one goal in two consecutive Serie A appearances for the first time in the competition.
3- All of Pierre Kalulu's three goals in Serie A have come from set pieces (two from corners).
4- Pierre Kalulu has scored after 25 Serie A games for the first time since 12 March 2022 against Empoli.
5- Tommaso Pobega has scored in Serie A for the first time since 19 December 2021, 27 appearances since.
6- Sandro Tonali has been involved in four goals (one goal and three assists) since November; over the same period, only Marcus Tavernier (five), Youcef Belaïli (six) and Martin Ødegaard (six) have contributed more goals among midfielders in Europe's top-5 leagues.
