AC Milan suspend training for at least a week; donate money to coronavirus response efforts

Following the recent developments in Italy, AC Milan have decided to suspend training for at least a week. Considering that the league has been suspended until April 3rd, the Rossoneri certainly have the time to take these precautionary measures, following the heavy Coronavirus outbreak in the country. 

The decision was announced on the club’s official website earlier today, stating that training is scheduled to resume on Monday next week. However, as mentioned, depending on how the upcoming days will pan out, the suspension could be extended to protect the players.  Continue reading

AC Milan 1-2 Genoa: Lacklustre Rossoneri side fail to perform without the fans

After the draw against Fiorentina, AC Milan were hoping for revenge this afternoon, taking on Genoa at the San Siro. However, the Rossoneri failed to grab the three points as the away side secured only their second win at the stadium in the last 19 meetings. 

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, the game was played behind closed doors, meaning no fans were at the stadium. Therefore, the atmosphere was certainly very strange, looking more like a pre-season friendly than a competitive league game. And Milan played like it was the former.  Continue reading

Rangnick set to become new AC Milan boss – first thoughts on the revolution

Just in the last few days, a lot has happened at AC Milan. Although you could have guessed it even before Zvonimir Boban’s words against the club, the Rossoneri are heading for a complete management revolution, starting from scratch again after what has been a mediocre season so far. 

The words of the Croatian, who works as the Chief Football Officer at the club, certainly sparked the revolution a bit earlier than initially planned. As mentioned, you could have easily figured out that there are disagreements between the Boban-Maldini duo and CEO Ivan Gazidis, even without the interview on Saturday morning. Continue reading

Juventus vs. AC Milan: Team news, stats and prediction – Coppa Italia

As a result of the postponement of this past weekend’s Serie A games, AC Milan and Juventus will most likely have a bit more energy in their legs, taking on each other in the Coppa Italia semi-final return leg. Considering what is at stake, it should be a very interesting game to watch. 

The first game between the two ended 1-1, as Cristiano Ronaldo scored a late equaliser for the Bianconeri at the San Siro. Quite surprisingly, the Rossoneri were on top for most of the game and really deserved more than a draw, but the away side’s perseverance punished them at the end.  Continue reading

Fiorentina 1-1 AC Milan: Rossoneri fail to secure win despite being one man up

Stefano Pioli’s men failed to grab all three points away at Fiorentina this evening, conceding a late equaliser despite being one man up. Although the referee made many controversial calls, it must be said that Milan should have done a lot better to kill the game. 

Fiorentina got the first real chance of the game as Gigio Donnarumma took way too much time on the ball, eventually losing it to Federico Chiesa. The latter managed to pick out Gaetano Castrovilli in the box, but the midfielder failed to hit the target with his effort. Lucky escape for the big man in goal. Continue reading

Fiorentina vs. AC Milan: Team news, stats and prediction

Following the narrow win against Torino, AC Milan will be looking to build on their good form with yet another three points this evening, taking on Fiorentina away from home. However, the Rossoneri can’t afford to get overconfident, given the importance of their remaining games this season. 

The battle for a top-four finish remains near impossible, especially since Atalanta have been in red-hot form as of late. However, Stefano Pioli’s side are still in the race and won’t give up until it’s done. Currently in eight place, they need to close a gap of ten points with 14 games left of the season.  Continue reading

AC Milan 1-0 Torino: Rebic on target again as Rossoneri claim important win

AC Milan followed up the impressive display against Juventus with a win this evening, beating Torino by the odd goal at the San Siro. Once again, just like against the Bianconeri, Ante Rebic got on the scoresheet (his sixth goal in seven games) and ultimately won the game for his side. 

The Rossoneri are now just four points behind Roma in fifth place, although the top-four zone and Atalanta are still ten points away. The Champions League dream remains, though, with 14 games left of the season. After Christmas, few would have predicted the progress that Milan have made since the start of the year.  Continue reading

AC Milan vs. Torino: Team news, stats and prediction

Having faced Juventus in the Coppa Italia semi-final during the week, AC Milan are gearing up to take on yet another Turin side at the San Siro, namely Torino. Seemingly in good form, Stefano Pioli’s side will be looking for a win to keep their dream of Champions League qualification alive. 

The Rossoneri responded well to the blackout against Inter, being the better side for a majority of the game against Juventus. Had it not been for the 90th-minute Ronaldo penalty, then they would have secured an important 1-0 win ahead of the second leg. Now, however, the situation is a bit tougher.  Continue reading

AC Milan vs. Juventus: Team news, stats and prediction – Coppa Italia

Following the disappointing loss against Inter in the derby, AC Milan will be looking to bounce back on Thursday evening as they take on Juventus in the Coppa Italia. It’s the first leg of the semi-finals, and given that they start at home, the Rossoneri need to get off to a good start. 

As mentioned, though, the derby loss will surely be in their heads. Stefano Pioli will have to work hard to keep their mind off it, as a good result against Juventus would help restore some of the confidence that they lost. Should they perform as they did in the first half against Inter, then a win is certainly possible tomorrow.  Continue reading
