AC Milan suffered a huge setback in their top four hopes last night and now they really cannot afford to make any more mistakes.
As il Corriere della Sera (via MilanNews) writes this morning, the road is now uphill because there are really complicated games to come against Lazio, Atalanta and Juventus. The Rossoneri really can’t go wrong anymore and the defeat against Sassuolo undermined the certainties of Milan, who could very well lose send spot tonight.
It was Pioli and the team who threw away the match against Sassuolo, who had done the minimum for an hour, creating few headaches for Donnarumma. The Rossoneri will have to make a profound examination of what went wrong, because performing well for 75 minutes should be enough to win.
With six rounds until the end of the season and with a Champions League place still in the balance, there were some criminal errors made individually by players and some questionable substitutions too. Perhaps Milan thought they had done the bulk of the work by beating Genoa, but instead they now face a situation where Napoli could end up three points behind them.
