AC Milan’s attacking gears seem to have completely jammed at the vital part of the season as the team were once again held to a 0-0 draw.
A second 0-0 in a row last night leaves a sour taste in the mouth and the Rossoneri no longer have their title dreams in their hands because of Inter’s win against Hellas Verona, though they did open the gap to two points ahead of Napoli again.
La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) report two statistics that should worry. The first is that Milan have drawn two consecutive 0-0 matches in Serie A since December 2018 (also against Torino and Bologna) and failed to score for two matches in a row in the league for the first time since February 2021.
The team created several chances against Bologna and again last night, but the right decisions and some composure in front of goal are missing. Olivier Giroud hasn’t scored for a few weeks, Rafael Leao looks tired and the other attacking players are struggling to score.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Ante Rebic being out injured didn’t help in terms of options from the bench, so now everything rests on getting a good result on Friday against Genoa.
