MN: Milan defying expectations atop Serie A but eight more crucial games remain

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have gone into the international break on the back of three straight wins against Napoli, Empoli and Cagliari, but there is a long way to go before there is anything to celebrate.

MilanNews writes how the Rossoneri have 66 points on the board, a total they have not had for 10 years since Massimiliano Allegri was the head coach. Stefano Pioli keeps talking about how the big objective for the season is to amass more points than the 79 from 2020-21.

Milan are currently three points ahead of where they were after 30 games last season – therefore compared to the same point in the last campaign – but the feeling is that it could have been an even wider margin.

A lot of injuries significantly affected the Diavolo’s season, while the club did not consider it appropriate to intervene on the market in January. Paolo Maldini and his collaborators have so far been proven right with that decision, but how 2021-22 is viewed will hinge very heavily on the last eight games and the final league finish.
