MILAN – He was a key player in the match and scored the Nerrazzurri’s second goal against SPAL. This is how Roberto Gagliardini analysed the game: "I could feel that my goal was going in, it turned out well and I’m happy with the result. It was important to win given that the team were going through a bit of a difficult period, with this applying to me too. I’m happy for everyone. I think that Thursday’s game is a vital one. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to help my teammates, but we need to put on a great performance because we want to go all the way in the Europa League. There will be difficulties in terms of the number of men available, but we are a good group – we demonstrated this today. There are still three months left to go this season, these will be three important months and we need to be at our very best to reach our objectives."
