Today the most important week of the season begins for Milan with a huge game against Juventus on the horizon on Sunday evening.
As MilanNews writes, it is a real crossroads point of the season for both teams as the Rossoneri and Bianconeri are each on 69 points and have each shown both their strengths and their inconsistency over the previous 34 games.
Both clubs are being pressured in the standings by Atalanta, Napoli and Lazio with the common target being a place in next season’s Champions League. A win against Benevento after two consecutive defeats means Milan are in better shape, while Andrea Pirlo’s Juventus struggled and in the end beat Udinese yesterday.
In all likelihood, whoever wins on Sunday will be able to qualify for the next Champions League at the expense of the other. That has huge implications when it comes to the transfer market, the future of the two coaches and even star players like Gianluigi Donnarumma and Hakan Calhanoglu.
