CorSport: Milan begin Champions League journey – mistakes are forbidden

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan must immediately respond to the derby defeat against Inter and they must do so in the first game of a Champions League group where missteps are not allowed.

The 2023-24 edition of the Champions League group stages begins today with Milan taking on Newcastle at 6.45pm at San Siro. Il Corriere dello Sport (via PianetaMilan) looks at each Italian representative, and the doubts they arouse.

Milan, Napoli and Lazio are not leaving their fans calm. Lazio will have to erase their three defeats (out of four) in the league, and it is a difficult moment for Sarri, but only partly unexpected after Sergej Milinkovic-Savic’s exit.

Napoli are in difficulty, already five points behind Inter. Even in this case one could not imagine that the transition from Spalletti to Garcia would not be painless.

Milan seemed to have new certainties with the first three wins of the season, which were immediately removed by Inter. They have been given the toughest group in paper, but against Tonali’s Newcastle they can’t make any more mistakes.
