AC Milan have started this season very well, with 16 points in the bag, and tonight they will face yet another big test. Atalanta are the opponents and the game will be played away from home, which will be exciting.
The Rossoneri, with a win, would equal their best start to the season in the three-points-per-win era. In the 2003/04 season, they got 19 points after the opening seven games and they could do the same tonight.
Speaking live on Sky Italia, as cited by MilanNews, Milan legend Billy Costacurta was asked about Milan and their start to the season. He made it clear that they shouldn’t be ruled out in the Scudetto race as they have ‘become men’.
“I see Milan’s last seasons as a continuation of great trust. These guys have pulled out of certain situations and have become men. They are constant and always attentive. Could they win the league? I wouldn’t rule them out because they continue to play in a certain way,” he stated.
Tonight, Stefano Pioli will be able to rely on a strong XI. Franck Kessie will be dropped in favour of a tandem of Ismael Bennacer and Sandro Tonali, which seems to be a very wise choice from the manager.
