After Inter failed to win against Torino last night, AC Milan are in sole possession of first place with no asterisks such as games in hand to factor in.
By winning all their games from here to the end, the Rossoneri would raise the Scudetto without having to worry about the results of their opponents, and La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) have given nine reasons why Pioli’s team can dream.
The first reason is the solidity in the defensive phase, considering that the win against Empoli brought a third consecutive clean sheet. Then are the two strikers: Ibrahimovic who is back and Giroud who is a leader at the moment.
In fourth is the lower pressure compared to the competition – especially Inter and Juve – and in fifth is the charge of San Siro. In sixth are the protagonists, like Bakayoko and Messias, who must show that they deserve to stay.
Then in seventh are factors like Florenzi and Kalulu who have proved to be starter-level players, and in eighth are the duo of Tonali and Leao who are having a season of consecration. Finally there is the calendar, which could be an ally compared to others.
