Piatek Isolated

Updated: May 31, 2019

The Polish striker started life as a Rossonero on fire with 6 goals in 5 games making him the fastest player to score six goals for the club in all competitions, overtaking club legend Nils Liedholm.

He also became the first Milan player to score in his first three starts in the league since Mario Balotelli in 2013.

Now he has gone 6 games without a goal, and the Rossoneri have suffered. Some media have said "he's in crisis"

Though the problem lies with supply. Not enough quality balls are being delivered to him, which is not his style of play, as he is used to being a target man.

Suso repeats the same move of always cutting in towards the box, which has made him more predictable to the opposition, and Calhanoglu has not been consistent.

Between the 2 wingman, not enough quality service is being provided to Piatek, who is being isolated in attack and is not used to fighting for possession, rather the target man.

If Gattuso can get his men to get more quality crosses to Piatek, (especially from Suso) Milan could fix the goal scoring issue and stand more of a chance of qualifying for the Champions league.

As always Forza Milan 🔴⚫🔴⚫
