No matter what seems to be thrown at Milan in terms of injuries, suspensions and COVID-positive players, they keep finding a way to win.
As il Corriere della Sera reports in their write-up this morning (via MilanNews), the victory in Cagliari was needed and a victory came against an opponent out of form but still scrapping for every point as a result. Pioli’s team are mature and ruthless, and welcoming Zlatan Ibrahimovic back was decisive.
Thanks to yesterday’s victory, Milan take back sole possession top spot returning to +3 over Inter, something that will help the Rossoneri in view of the key match against Atalanta next Saturday.
After the big duel with Atalanta and the derby in the Coppa Italia, Milan will be awaited by a not impossible trio of games against Bologna, Crotone and Spezia. The plan is clear: grit your teeth now, get players back, and then hope to keep them for the second half of the season.
