AC Milan have started the new year with 11 points in 5 games. Only Lazio, Juventus and Verona have done better than the Rossoneri. In the same period, Inter have claimed 9 points, and tomorrow the derby takes place.
With just one day left until the big clash, Milan fans are wondering whether the season can still be saved, now closer to Champions League than ever. Inter are obviously favoured, but we know that the derby is a game in itself.
Anything can happen, as Gazzetta Dello Sport highlights, especially now that Zlatan Ibrahimovic is there and the wind seems to have changed. In fact, dragged by the Swede, Milan now seemingly have Champions League rhythm.
At Christmas, sixth place was eight points away. Now, however, it’s just one point (after Bologna’s win against Roma yesterday). In other words, a win could see them continue their quest for the prestigious European competition. Everything seems possible.
