CorSera: Milan cannot afford slip-ups in Scudetto push – next three games are vital

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan want to put pressure on Inter and Napoli tonight by beating Empoli and proving their title credentials, a report claims.

As il Corriere della Sera (via MilanNews) points out, the win in Naples generated a big charge of enthusiasm and adrenaline, but now the Rossoneri will have to prove that they have learned from their mistakes and are not going to drop points in winnable games.

Milan have thrown away 12 points against the teams in the bottom half and in the last 10 games of the season, the only big names on their path will be Lazio and Atalanta, so they simply must find their form against the lower-ranking sides.

It goes without saying that in such a tense battle it is forbidden to make mistakes, but Milan find themselves facing a decisive crossroads in the next two games against Empoli and Cagliari before the international break, then against Bologna afterwards.

There is no two ways around it: 9 points are needed, and if they do not manage to get them then the Scudetto dream loses a lot of credibility.
