Tonight’s game against Lazio at San Siro is the beginning of a very challenging tryptic for AC Milan during which the strength of their squad will be thoroughly tested.
This morning’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanNews) remarks how Milan are up against seven days of ‘fire and adrenaline’. Looking at the Rossoneri’s upcoming engagements, starting with today’s match against Sarri’s team, it is clear that it will be a week in which the team will learn a lot about themselves.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s return comes today as well as that of Franck Kessie, and then the run will continue in Liverpool when Milan’s Champions League return starts at Anfield. Then, Stefano Pioli’s men will be in Turin for the big league match against Juventus.
The outcome of these three challenges could already give a first signal on Milan’s ambitions, in Italy and in Europe, and whether silverware is indeed a realistic expectation.
