Olivier Giroud could hardly have been a bigger hero to AC Milan fans after his brace in the derby win in February, but his form has quickly faded.
Milan were beaten 3-0 by Inter in the second leg of the Coppa Italia semi-finals which means there will be no trip to the capital this year, but La Gazzetta dello Sport (via PianetaMilan) report that the data that most worries most is regarding the attack which drew a blank for the third time in four games.
In addition to the problems on the frontline behind him, Olivier Giroud also seems to have hit a slump in form because the Frenchman has not scored since his winning goal against Napoli at the Maradona.
Giroud’s six matches without a goal are a problem but with Zlatan Ibrahimovic out for most of the season (including at the moment due to a knee injury) and the repeated problems suffered by Ante Rebic, there is nobody else to start and lessen the psychological and physical burden.
One thing is certain: Milan will have to solve the goal problem as early as Sunday evening, when they face Lazio. Otherwise the title dream will likely be over.
