Teams: Feyenoord, AC Milan
I'm not *quite* as pessimistic. I thought Karsdorp generally did alright throughout, and I thought both CBs were half decent, but our midfield failed terribly, both in defense and attack. And Ié actually, I genuinely think, had an even battle with Morelos in the first half and eventually got the better of him. Even that stats say Ié won most of his challenges, and had a passing % of 97 with 4/6 successful long passes. I will say that I think I'm still comparing him to vd Heijden, so the standard to beat isn't all that high. Ié is weak in the air for a CB though, so Botteghin will need to step up there if this pair is to remain our CB pairing. But we've just bought that Johnson or whatever his name is, as well as Senesi so really don't know what the plan is there.
Anyway, generally probably our weakest performance this season, in a string of mostly mediocre performances so yeah, doesn't look great.
Btw, I thought Vermeer wasn't just good, but great. That double save of his against Morelos was world-class.
