MN: Focus must be on Milan’s toothless attack as well as fluctuating defence

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have had a difficult start to 2023 so far with 12 games played, of which four were victories with three draws and five defeats.

MilanNews writes how the team have only scored 15 goals in that period yet they have conceded 21, so while much has been said and said about the defensive problems, but it is also right to mention the sterility of their forward department.

There have been only five goals from players in the centre-forward position so far this year with three from Giroud, one from Origi and one from Ibrahimovic, which came from a penalty. If we also want to include Rafael Leao among the forwards, we get to seven.

This is far too little for a team that aspires to at least qualify for the Champions League let alone defence the Scudetto, which is now an objective which has vanished but was very much there are the beginning of the year when the gap to Napoli was five points.

Any team team that qualifies for the quarter-finals of the Champions League cannot be a bad one, but the psychological repercussions of the crisis in January has visibly made the suqad lose their edge, while in Europe the team seem compact and cohesive.
