MN: Milan’s problems extend to goalscoring – clear decline present compared to first 14 rounds

By Oliver Fisher -

There has been a worrying decline in the number of goals scored compared to the first half of the season, a report has revealed.

As MilanNews writes, Milan were very much on their way to a Champions League spot a few weeks ago and were still in touching distance of top spot if anything, but now the race to get into the top four has become very complicated, especially after the defeats against Sassuolo and Lazio.

There is not a single responsible factor but rather a few issues that have contributed to the decline in performances and results, such as a precarious physical condition, poor form of individuals, and defensive mistakes.

However, there is also an alarming difference between the goals scored in the first 14 rounds of the first half of the season and those scored in the same matches in the second round. The Rossoneri amassed 32 goals from rounds 1-14, but the number of goals scored in the reverse fixtures has in fact dropped to 21. A clear decrease (34.375% less), which Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s absence has had an obvious say in.
