As is the case with almost every game in the second half of the season, three important points are at stake for Milan this evening, taking on Salernitana. With a win, they would put more pressure on Inter.
Stefano Pioli’s men are flying high and could move four points clear of their city rivals this evening, as the Nerazzurri will face Sassuolo tomorrow. Indeed, it would be yet another sign of strength from Milan after a positive 2022 thus far.
There’s no doubt, as Corriere Dello Sera (via MilanNews) points out, that Milan are the superior team in today’s clash but everything can happen. The Rossoneri have slipped up against similar opponents in the past and Salernitana will be fighting for salvation.
Although the season is still long, it’s a moment when the Scudetto race is tightening up and the real contenders are being separated from the others. Milan need to hang in there and continue to put pressure on Inter, that’s certain.
