As is often the case when competing in the league and in European competitions, the five-week stretch between now and Christmas is likely to be decisive on multiple fronts.
In Serie A Milan must reduce the gap to Inter which currently stands at eight points, while in the Champions League the potential passage to the round of 16 will be decided in the next 180 minutes, meaning there is a lot to play for before 2023 ends.
The ‘Tour de Force’ begins on Saturday night in what is the first of three home games in a row at San Siro. Fiorentina are the visitors in the league, then on Tuesday 28 November Milan will close out their home UCL commitments with a huge game against Borussia Dortmund.
The Rossoneri opened December with a match at the Meazza against Frosinone on the night of the 2nd, before a tough double-header on the road against Atalanta (December 9) and Newcastle United (December 13).
Finally, Milan will host Monza and then travel to face Salernitana before Christmas comes around. The objective is simple: get through in Europe, and reignite the Scudetto push.
