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

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

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

Champions League Preview: AC Milan v. Barcelona

Date: Wednesday, February 20 2013

League Positions: Milan (3rd in Serie A), Barcelona (1st in La Liga)

Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, Milan, Italy

Network: Fox Soccer Channel

Milan has improved a great deal since the start of this campaign, but let’s not sugarcoat it. This tie is an extremely tall order. Barcelona are a familiar foe (unfortunately) and while Rossoneri players and bosses have declared this to be a psychological benefit that will all go out the window when the opening whistle blows.

Serie A Preview: AC Milan v. Bologna

Date: Sunday, January 20 2013

Kickoff: 9:00 AM ET (USA) / 15:00 CET (ITA)

League position: Milan (7) – Bologna (14)

Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, Milan, Italy

The return half of Serie A began better than the first with Milan picking up a point over a Sampdoria side that snatched all three all the way back in round 1. At this point in the season (and in the “new Milan” adventure) a draw in a game that could have gone either way is satisfying enough, although the Rossoneri did miss out on the chance to leapfrog listless Roma. Bologna is a squad Milan easily handled away in September, but the Rossoblu have found an offense and the victory might not be as easy to come by this time around.
