AC Milan face a real litmus test tonight as they make the trip to the capital to play Roma at the Stadio Olimpico, and it is a test they must pass.
As this morning’s edition of il Corriere della Sera (via MilanNews) writes, the game against Jose Mourinho’s side serves as proof of maturity. If the Rossoneri manage to emerge with a win and a positive result, then it will serve as yet another indication that the team are made of the right stuff.
As the newspaper points out, the word ‘Scudetto’ is no longer prohibited for Milan who have set an ambitious target, but we will need to see more than what was seen against Torino on Tuesday night in the 1-0 win.
Milan will take the field already knowing the result of Napoli – who face Salernitana away – and therefore it could put greater pressure on them to win. Pioli trusts his team, but tonight will serve a purpose.
