Serie A Preview: Carpi v. AC Milan

Date: Sunday, December 6, 2015

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

League Position: Milan (7), Carpi (19)

Stadio Alberto Braglia, Modena, Italy

After a solid stretch of results broken up only by a tepid performance against Juve, one might think this match against Serie A debutantes Carpi would be a breeze. But if you’ve been paying attention the past few seasons and have witnessed the struggles the Rossoneri have had against the likes of Sassuolo and Empoli, you know there is no room for error or a let-up against a side that will need every measly point they can get.

Serie A Preview: Juventus v. AC Milan

Date: Saturday, November 21, 2015

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

League Position: Milan (6), Juventus (7)

Juventus Stadium, Turin, Italy

After rocky starts both of these long-time rivals have found a bit of a groove, each tasting defeat just once in the past six rounds. Milan, having picked up eleven points in the past five, look to keep the good times rolling by defeating an opponent they’ve only managed to vanquish in some meaningless friendlies for the past few years.

Serie A Preview: AC Milan v. Atalanta

Date: Saturday, November 7, 2015

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

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

Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, Milan, Italy

Three wins a row! Count them! A whole three! So maybe we haven’t been overly impressive, but we comfortably beat a solid Lazio side in Rome last time out, and any Rossoneri fans desperate for signs of a resurgence just might have found them. To keep the good times rolling this weekend and continue climbing the table Milan must get past an inconsistent but capable Atalanta side. Read More

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

League Position: Milan (11), Torino (5)

Everyone feeling re-energized after the international break? Forgotten that 4-0 thumping by Napoli in the last round? Nah, me neither. Read More

Serie A Preview: AC Milan v. Napoli

Date: Sunday, October 4, 2015

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

League Position: Milan (11), Napoli (10)

Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, Milan, Italy

Third time never seems to be the charm for the Rossoneri as they limp back to San Siro after a dispiriting loss against a weak Genoa side. Still yet to record three wins in a row since two seasons ago, Milan now face a Napoli side undefeated since the opening round and coming off a big win over Juventus. Read More

Serie A Preview: Genoa v. AC Milan

Date: Sunday, September 27, 2015

Kickoff: 6:30 AM ET (USA) / 12:30 CET (ITA)

League Position: Milan (7), Genoa (16)

Stadio Luigi Ferraris, Genoa, Italy

Well we saw the good, the bad, but thankfully not the ugly enough to ultimately blow a great first half against Udinese on Tuesday. The defense needs work, clearly. But with struggling Genoa as hosts this Sunday Milan have the chance to string together three Serie A wins for the first time since the 2013/2014 season. Read More

Serie A Preview: Internazionale v. AC Milan

Date: Sunday, September 13, 2015

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

Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, Milan, Italy

It rings a little hollow to call Inter undefeated at this early point in the season, but Milan will certainly need to be a lot better to beat their 2-0 neighbors and hosts in the derby this weekend. The Rossoneri were the better squad over a match and a half in the preseason, but they’ve yet to be the better squad in Serie A this season. Both Milanese squads are hoping to reestablish themselves as top five clubs, making this derby vital no matter how early it falls. Read More

Serie A Preview: AC Milan v. Empoli

Date: Saturday, August 29, 2015

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

Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, Milan, Italy

Starting the Serie A season away at Fiorentina was always going to be difficult, but since they went down to ten men early on it’s very hard still to have a good read on what this Milan team is and what it can potentially be. What it has to be is better than Empoli, who visit the San Siro this weekend. Read More

Serie A Preview: Fiorentina v. AC Milan

Date: Sunday, August 23, 2015

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

Stadio Artemio Franchi, Florence, Italy

Who’s ready for the new new new Milan? It’s been another eventful Summer for the Rossoneri on and off the field, but now we are ready to begin the 2015-2016 Serie A season! New manager, new players, new business partnerships (is that finalized yet?), new stadium (on the way, supposedly), and new hopes from the red and black faithful. I mean, at least a few of you have to be optimistic, right? Read More

Serie A Preview: Sassuolo v. AC Milan

Date: Sunday, May 17, 2015

Kickoff: 6:30 AM ET (USA) / 12:30 CET (ITA)

League Position: Milan (10), Sassuolo (16)

Mapei Stadium, Reggio Emilia, Italy

Sassuolo are safe and Milan are mid-table, so I think it’s fair to say the stakes are pretty low in this one. Still, some players will be looking to impress, either their current managers or another, and we owe Sassuolo some payback once again this season. Read More
