AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli is studying the right team to face Sassuolo at the Mapei Stadium on Sunday knowing anything other than defeat means his side win the title. There are still three days to go before the game in Reggio Emilia but according to Tuttosport (via MilanNews), the idea is to confirm the starting XI for the match away against Hellas Verona which was subsequently then repeated for the win over Atalanta on Sunday.
Messias following Milan-Atalanta game: “When Theo scored I got emotional, we’re very close to winning it”
AC Milan midfielder Junior Messias has admitted that he got emotional when Theo Hernandez put the Rossoneri 2-0 ahead against Atalanta. Speaking during a long interview on the Gli Autogol Twitch channel (via Milan News), Messias opened up about his feelings during the 2-0 victory over Atalanta that could have been enough to clinch the Serie A title.
AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli has revealed that he has forbidden his team from telling him what is going on during Cagliari’s game against Inter. The 2-0 victory against Atalanta at San Siro this afternoon ensured that Milan need just one point to lift the Scudetto when they travel to face Sassuolo next Sunday, and that’s if Inter don’t drop points against Cagliari tonight.
AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli is feeling ‘very satisfied’ after his side secured a huge 2-0 victory over Atalanta to move closer to the Scudetto. Milan went into the game against their Lombardy rivals knowing that the needed four points from their final two games to secure a first league title since 2010-11, and they got three of them thanks to two goals in the second half.
Theo Hernandez's superb goal sealed AC Milan's victory over Atalanta to put them on the brink of their first Serie A title for 11 years. The French left-back's solo run and finish sparked wild celebrations at a raucous San Siro, with Rafael Leao having already scored for the hosts.
AC Milan are looking to bring in a right-winger for next season as their current ones have been disappointing this term. A few players have been linked with the Rossoneri, including Domenico Berardi and Gerard Deulofeu. Alexis Saelemaekers and Junior Messias have been underwhelming this season and this has put Milan in difficult situations at time, forced to rely on the left flank a lot.
In the last few weeks, following what was a tough period of injuries, we have seen more of Ante Rebic and what he can do. He remains an important player for Milan and this was highlighted by Stefano Pioli today. In the last four games, Rebic has come off the bench around the 70th-minute mark and he has shown glimpses of his brilliance.
Alexis Saelemaekers has a couple of offers on the table but seems reluctant to leave AC Milan at the moment, according to a report. Even though the Belgian has renewed his contract with Milan last October until 30 June 2026, he could still depart once the season ends.
AC Milan are making plans for next season and one of the positions they want to reinforce is the right-wing. In order to afford their primary target Marco Asensio, they will need to make space, a report claims. Junior Messias and Alexis Saelemaekers have taken turns starting on the right flank this season but it’s not been a huge success for either of them.
Both Alexis Saelemaekers and Rade Krunic will start against Hellas Verona on Sunday evening in a crucial match for the Rossoneri, a report claims. As has been reported by Milan News in their predicted Milan eleven, it is Junior Messias and Ismael Bennacer who will miss the chance to start the biggest game of the season so far.
Rade Krunic and Alexis Saelemaekers could both start for Milan against Hellas Verona on Sunday evening, a report claims. As has been reported by Italian broadcaster Sky Sport, via Milan News, Stefano Pioli still has two positions in the team that are up for grabs. There was a question mark over Junior Messias’ chances of starting the game on Sunday and now it seems that he will be on the bench with Saelemaekers taking his place on the right wing.
Milan are determined to bring in a top-notch right winger in the summer. While Alexis Saelemaekers is likely to stay, the Rossoneri are considering partying ways with Junior Messias to open up a spot on the roster. Instead, Samu Castillejo is definitely on his way out since he has seen scarce playing time.
There is a lot of focus on the additions that AC Milan need to make their squad grow in quality, but there will reportedly also be some departures to make room. According to Calciomercato.com, the four games between now and the end of the league season will also be the last at the club for both winger Samu Castillejo and midfielder Tiemouè Bakayoko.
Despite conceding early to Ciro Immobile, Milan stormed back to beat Lazio 2-1, scoring a dramatic goal in added time. The Rossoneri started the match in poor form, but Pioli’s side was able to establish its superiority after halftime. Sandro Tonali, Rafael Leao and Junior Messias led their Milan to victory, while the hosts’ downfall was a rough day at the office for the defense.
Samu Castillejo has only played 122 minutes all season and that has been questioned by some fans amid AC Milan’s right-wing struggles. During today’s press conference, Stefano Pioli explained why this has been the case. The Spaniard, who arrived from Villarreal back in 2018, has never been a key player for Milan but on occasion, he has done well.
A summer overhaul is in the fray for Milan, who are well in contention for a first Scudetto title in a decade. The change in ownership from Elliott Management to Bahrain-based InvestCorp is expected to bring in surplus funds which will aid the Rossoneri in reinforcing their ranks.
While the majority of speculation regarding the summer window under Investcorp is about signings, there will also be some exits to make room for additions. According to what is being reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport (via SempreMilan.it), there will be several players who will leave Milan ahead of next season as Investcorp – who are in advanced talks to buy the club – look to ‘streamline’ the squad ahead of a new era.
Ahead of the Coppa Italia clash between AC Milan and Inter this evening, Junior Messias spoke to the media about the Rossoneri’s task. He got on the scoresheet last time out but won’t play from start today. Messias came off the bench against Genoa and found the back of the net from close range, converting his own rebound.
AC Milan Defender Davide Calabria Fit For Coppa Italia Semi-Final Second Leg Against Inter, Italian Media Report
Defender Davide Calabria will be fully fit to start for AC Milan in their Coppa Italia semi-final second leg against Inter on Tuesday evening. This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who report that the 25-year-old is back in training after missing the Rossoneri’s Serie A win over Genoa through illness.
Fikayo Tomori has talked about how he feels ‘proud’ when the team keep a clean sheet after AC Milan ran out 2-0 winners against Genoa last night. It was far from a classic at San Siro between a side struggling for goals and their visitors who are battling relegation, but a goal early and one late on sealed a vital victory for the Rossoneri who stay top over Easter, responding well to the doubts that have arisen and to Inter’s win over Spezia.
