CorSera: Milan to face Cagliari with added pressure in Scudetto sprint Saturday

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan face another important test of their title credentials as they travel to face Cagliari at the Sardegna Arena tonight.

Il Corriere della Sera (via MilanNews) write how Milan, Napoli and Inter will all take to the field within a few hours of each other, with the Rossoneri on stage in Sardinia as the left game. It will be a crucial Saturday that could provide more twists and turns, and the margin for error is decreasing all the time.

Pioli’s side will take to the field at 20:45, already knowing the results of Napoli and Inter which will add pressure either way. If one or both have slipped up then it is a chance to pull away, but if both have won then it is imperative that Milan do the same.

The 1-0 against Empoli was anything but easy and the game tonight – against a team fighting not to be relegated – means that Milan will have to raise the bar, to do better than the last games and confirm that they can beat the lower-ranking sides.
