Alexis Saelemaekers has been one of the biggest surprises since his arrival at Milan just over one year ago. He’s a perfect example of the new project and up until yesterday, he was in a great moment.
Prior to the defeat against Spezia last night, as highlighted by MilanNews, the Belgian had played 29 consecutive Serie A games without a defeat. Of course, this was a new record in the three-point era, but it’s a shame that he didn’t get to 30 games.
Saelemaekers missed out on the games against Juventus and Atalanta in January, first due to an injury and then a suspension. His record thus continued but now the spell is over and just like his teammates, a lot of work needs to be done.
Milan will take on Red Star Belgrade mid-week in the Europa League and then Inter at the weekend. The latter game will be absolutely crucial to understand where the Rossoneri currently stand.
