Serie A Positions: Milan (7), Juventus (1)

Stadio Olimpico, Rome, Italy

Well, here we are. Another thoroughly disappointing season, and yet there is still a trophy on the line. After perhaps the easiest road to the final in Coppa Italia history, the Rossoneri face off once more with a Juventus side that has bullied them for years now. Do we deserve it? No. Do we desire it?

Um, maybe? Read More

Kickoff: 2:45 PM ET (USA) / 20:45 CET (ITA)

League Position: Milan (6), Torino (11)

Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, Milan, Italy

Even the most cynical Milanisti have to admit the recent undefeated streak has been at least slightly encouraging. Mihajlovic at the very least has made them hard to beat and the chase down the stretch to catch Inter might actually be fun. But we’ve got to keep the good times rolling as a sputtering Torino side visits the San Siro this weekend. Read More

Kickoff: 2:45 PM ET (USA) / 20:45 CET (ITA)

League Position: Milan (6), Inter (4)

Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, Milan, Italy

All derbies are high-stakes, but with Inter trying to stay in the top 3 race and Milan reaching for Roma’s 5th spot, this one comes at a particularly significant time for each club. Both teams have been frustrating supporters with their inconsistency, more a recent trend for a Nerazzuri side that just missed out on topping Serie A at Christmas. Read More

Kickoff: 2:45 PM ET (USA) / 20:45 CET (ITA)

League Position: Milan (6), Empoli (8)

Stadio Carlo Castellani, Empoli, Italy

Alright well, that was a pleasant surprise. Bookended by two nice finishes, Milan set out with a clear gameplan against Fiorentina and executed it to near perfection. Maybe Mihajlovic is figuring some things out lately, but it’s going to take many more similar results for Milan to hoist themselves back up into European contention. Read More

League Position: Milan (8), Fiorentina (4)

Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, Milan, Italy

Hooray we’re in the Coppa Italia semifinal! You’ll forgive me if that’s the most I celebrate for now, won’t you? The win over Carpi came on the heels of a 1-1 draw against Roma that doesn’t look bad on paper, yet with as many opportunities as Milan had to win that game it still leaves an uneasy feeling heading into the second half of the Serie A season.

Two struggling Serie A giants collide as Milan travel for a clash in the capital. The Rossoneri have struggled to beat some bad teams recently. Any predictions how this match against a good team might play out? Read More

Our run of matches against the bottom quarter of the Serie A table coninues after the break with Roberto Donadoni and Bologna visiting Milan on Wednesday. And don’t let the second half against Frosinone fool you, this little “easy” streak has proven to be anything but. Read More

I feel like I should just copy and paste the last two weeks’ previews here and just find all the Veronas and Carpis and replace them with Frosinones. Read More
