The pre-season has come to an end and AC Milan can be rather pleased with the outcome. If the win against Marseille wasn’t enough, the Rossoneri proved that they are ready with last night’s 6-1 trashing against Vicenza.
There have been ups and downs for Stefano Pioli’s men this pre-season, naturally, but the last two games have proved that they are ready for the season opener. Given the early start of the season, it would be harsh to demand more at this point.
As highlighted by today’s edition of Corriere Della Sera (via MilanNews), Milan were sloppy to concede after just 20 seconds but they reacted immediately. From that point on, there was no doubt about which team was the better side.
The fact that Milan bagged six goals speaks for itself with regards to the performance, but there is still a bitter taste in Pioli’s mouth due to the injuries sustained. Junior Messias might make it back for Udinese, but the case isn’t the same for Tonali and tests will be done today to understand his injury.
