A strong team performance combined with the goalkeeping heroics of Silvio Proto ensured RSC Anderlecht earned a goalless draw at San Siro in their opening UEFA Champions League Group C game, with AC Milan yet to score in three home games this season.
The visitors had the better of the first half, but while the Rossoneri improved after the interval, Proto denied Mathieu Flamini and substitute Stephan El Shaarawy, inspiring the Belgian champions to a deserved point.
In the first half the team made several mistakes. This is not a good moment for us and the fans are demanding that we win every match.
Massimiliano Allegri, Milan coach
Nil-nil is a good result and we played well. We gave away some chances but also created a few ourselves. We did well. When you do not concede you have to be satisfied.
Bram Nuytinck, Anderlecht defender
