not only pace, he's strong too
and can cover space much better than Musacchio

Good debut minus the first ten minutes, was quiet but did what he had to. Team played pretty poor so can't expect much more from him yet.

Very good start. I thought he was supposed to be a fodder who can't play football on professional level. But he already looks times better equipped for the role than moosacchio

Love his composure. Need to see him against superior attackers or isolated to see how he handles himself but he seems to be what you want - drop him in the lineup and be perfectly calm that he will do his job.

Also he didnt make the big gaffe as many of our other CB's did on their introduction (thinking Acerbi, Ely, Sokratis)

From what i saw he was impressive. Pretty fast center back too. His positioning was what surprised me. I thought he was awful

he did get bullied and lost the ball inside our own box.

Looks like a decent modern CB, no glaring weaknesses so far. He is not a RB though.

Give him time, he'll show them. Please don't over-hype

Duarte was not as bad as people making him out to be. I think he is better than Mussachio. I bet it's like hell to try to stamp your name in the starting lineup knowing you're flanked by Calabria.

The immobile goal was not an error, he was beaten by good attacking movement (running from the blind side). The second goal he could have done better by heading the ball sideways, but also the fault was that Pioli didn't realize that the midfield was on low gas and needed a player there to pick up the second ball.

The amount of the times he was out of position had me stressed

The worst thing he did on the 2nd goal was playing Correa onside.

I liked his performance a lot vs Juve.
Good interceptions, great pace, strong duelling.
No nonsense type of player.
He needs to put in a similar

He needs to find some continuity now.

Milan have been dealt a blow as defender Leo Duarte will be out for 3-4 months with a heel injury.

Duarte - a summer signing from Flamengo - had only just broken into Milan’s first team, starting four of their last seven games.

However, the 23-year-old missed the 1-1 draw with Napoli last weekend and the Rossoneri confirmed on their official website he had fractured the heel bone in his left foot.

He underwent surgery on Thursday and will be out for “3-4 months”, as per the club’s statement.
