Derby showdown an opportunity for AC Milan to make a statement

Thu, 12 Oct 2017 10:56:00 PDT

Former AC Milan midfielder Demetrio Albertini has described the Milan derby as something special as they prepare to face Inter in Serie A. The last time these two giants of Italian football crossed paths, they played out an extraordinary and historic Derby della Madonnina. On April 15, AC Milan and Inter clashed in the first lunchtime kick-off in the history of the fixture, just days after Yonghong Li had completed his takeover of the former to officially put both side sides under Chinese ownership.

After Milan's loss to Roma, Gab Marcotti explains why it is crucial for the Rossoneri to finish in Serie A's top four.

Inconsistent returns from AC Milan's big group of summer signings so far

Thu, 5 Oct 2017 10:06:00 PDT

After Milan's loss to Roma, Gab Marcotti explains why it is crucial for the Rossoneri to finish in Serie A's top four. AC Milan dominated headlines during the summer as following Yonghong Li's takeover of the club, the Rossoneri added 11 new faces to the squad in a bid to kick-start an exciting new era. Milan possess a perfect record in the Europa League, including in qualifying, as they have rattled off win after win against teams they're expected to beat. However, it's been a little trickier in Serie A where they've slipped up three times against better opposition, and it won't get any easier when they return...

Vincenzo Montella must revisit Leonardo Bonucci's role in defence

Mon, 2 Oct 2017 09:01:00 PDT

After Milan's loss to Roma, Gab Marcotti explains why it is crucial for the Rossoneri to finish in Serie A's top four. I didn't think AC Milan were anywhere near as poor in the 2-0 home defeat to AS Roma as they have been in recent games. In fact, for most of the match they arguably had the upper hand, and yet, it only took a defensive slip-up for Roma and a super Edin Dzeko finish to pull ahead late and then add another. For all their supposed supremacy earlier in the game, Milan created less than they should have. We've said it before: the Panini sticker approach to team-building doesn't quite work, and it may...

Kalinic wasteful as Milan fall short vs. another quality opponent in Roma loss

Sun, 1 Oct 2017 01:33:00 PDT

Edin Dzeko scored for the fifth straight match to lead Roma past Milan, which finished with 10 men at the San Siro. After Milan's loss to Roma, Gab Marcotti explains why it is crucial for the Rossoneri to finish in Serie A's top four. AC Milan fell to a 2-0 loss to Roma at the San Siro on Sunday, with goals from Edin Dzeko and Alessandro Florenzi sealing the win for the visitors. The Rossoneri had their moments, but ultimately it's another loss in a big test for Vincenzo Montella and his men. Positives There was more fight and character shown by the team on Sunday, something that was sorely missing against Sampdoria last time out. In turn, it was a much better performance, although more importantly they didn't manage to secure...

Victory over Roma would quiet Vincenzo Montella's critics at Milan

Fri, 29 Sep 2017 12:27:00 PDT

Shaka Hislop delves into the latest rumours surrounding Ozil, Ancelotti, Werner and many more in Rumour Rater. Rijeka fought back late at the San Siro, but Patrick Cutrone's stoppage-time goal led Milan to victory in the Europa League. It seems strange to suggest that a game in October is so crucial for AC Milan, but that's what faces them this weekend when they host Roma at the San Siro. Vincenzo Montella is coming under pressure very early this season, and both the Milan boss and his players must step up and silence the doubters. Ten wins in 12 games in all competitions so far this season, including Europa League qualifiers, would suggest that Montella is doing a stellar job. However, it doesn't tell the whole story as the...

A last-gasp winner from Patrick Cutrone rescued AC Milan on Thursday night, as they secured a dramatic 3-2 win over Rijeka.

Fortunately, Cutrone was on hand to produce the decisive moment. Positives After the defeat to Sampdoria at the weekend, the pressure was on Vincenzo Montella and his players. While it wasn't a convincing win, they ultimately got...

Roma vs. Milan a clash of close friends, big clubs and reversing fortunes

Thu, 28 Sep 2017 12:36:00 PDT

Di Francesco, left, and Montella will put their friendship aside for Sunday's must-win game at the San Siro. Eusebio di Francesco and Vincenzo Montella have known each other for years. Most people remember them playing together for Roma's last title-winning team in 2000-01, but the friendship between the two actually goes back even further to the very start of their careers. Di Francesco and Montella were apprentices at Empoli. Just two kids, a long way from home, with the same goal of making it as professional footballers.

AC Milan's Vincenzo Montella should not be criticised by bosses in public

Mon, 25 Sep 2017 09:00:00 PDT

Vincenzo Montella should not have his bosses criticising his plan after games. AC Milan were poor -- very poor -- in their 2-0 defeat away to Sampdoria. It's not the first time it has happened this season and as he usually does, Vincenzo Montella faced the music afterwards and was blunt as usual: "It's my fault, I misread our condition, we have the youngest squad in Serie A and we need to be patient. But I have plenty of faith." Montella needs support; what he doesn't need is his boss breaking down his game plan in public after matches. But that's what Marco Fassone, the club's...

Milan turn in their worst performance of the season in 2-0 loss to Sampdoria

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 07:53:00 PDT

Ricky Alvarez scored Sampdoria's second as AC Milan looked lifeless in a 2-0 defeat to Sampdoria. AC Milan fell to a 2-0 defeat at Sampdoria on Sunday in what was their worst performance of the season thus far. Goals from Duvan Zapata and Ricardo Alvarez sealed a deserved win for the hosts as they inflicted a second loss of the campaign on the Rossoneri. Positives None. From the first minute of the encounter, Milan looked lacklustre, off the pace and not committed enough. Coupled with sloppy passing and no composure in possession, it was a recipe for disaster as they failed to manage a single...

Defeat against Lazio will show big-spending AC Milan have many options

Mon, 11 Sep 2017 07:42:00 PDT

Janusz Michallik says Milan will need time to figure out how the new players fit into the squad after a 4-1 loss at Lazio. AC Milan's stated ambition this season is a top-four finish. Actually, it's more than that -- it's a key element in determining whether they'll be able refinance the $350 million mega-loan from Elliott Management when it becomes a due in a year's time or whether they'll end up with new owners. So, the 4-1 hammering at the hands of Lazio on Sunday won't do much for morale. The Rossoneri were poor pretty much across the board and Vincenzo Montella was comprehensively out-coached by Simone Inzaghi....
