Player ratings: Tonali won the battle against Locatelli – Football Italia

The Italian sports pages highlight how Milan midfielder Sandro Tonali won the midfield battle against Juventus’ Manuel Locatelli on Sunday.

Milan saved a point when Ante Rebic cancelled out Alvaro Morata’s opening goal at the Allianz Stadium and the Italian papers agree the Rossoneri coach Stefano Pioli tactically overcame Max Allegri on the night.

Without Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Olivier Giroud available, Rebic prevailed and helped Milan secure a point in Turin, while Allegri stormed off after the full-time whistle, as Juventus sit 18th in Serie A after four games.

Wojciech Szczesny has been criticised in recent weeks, but the Poland international avoids being the centre of attention against the Diavolo.

The midfield battle between Tonali and Locatelli, however, was a talking point after the game and the three main sports papers agree the Rossonero won the battle on Sunday.

Il Corriere dello Sport believes Tonali was the best player on the pitch, while the two others have difficulties separating the two goalscorers, Morata and Rebic.
