Analysis: Jeremy Menez Brace Helps AC Milan Defeat Cagliari

Thousands of AC Milan fans boycotted their home victory over Cagliari in a protest over president Silvio Berlusconi’s running of the club. The Curva Sud ultras group called for fans to not attend the match or buy merchandise in a bid for Berlusconi to be more transparent. In spite of the chaos, Milan picked up a much-needed win over struggling Cagliari, triumphing 3-1 at the San Siro to relieve some of the pressure on coach Filippo Inzaghi. Two goals from Jeremy Menez, the second coming from the penalty spot, and a Philippe Mexes strike earned the Rossoneri only their second win since the start of February, and first in their last four. Diego Farias scored the leveller for Cagliari, who remain inside the bottom three and potentially seven points from safety with eight games of the season remaining. The Rossoneri fans were on strike after dire results, leaving the stands empty but for a banner that read: ‘Game over. Insert […] Read more »

AC Milan V Cagliari – Team News, Tactics, Lineups And Prediction

AC MILAN v CAGLIARI San Siro, Milan Saturday 21st March, 2015, 19:45 GMT  *** AC Milan will look to improve on their recent run of poor form when they take on Zdenek Zeman’s Cagliari side on Sunday at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza. The Rossoneri have not managed to achieve a league victory since February 22 and the pressure is now really beginning to mount on coach Filippo Inzaghi. There has already been considerable speculation regarding his future and talk of a summer departure has only increased after last week’s 2-1 defeat at Fiorentina. Meanwhile, the Rossoblu have already experienced a number of coaching changes this season and the recent return of Zemenlandia has brought back an air of confidence among the Isolani. This reinvigorated side displayed signs of life last week after they put in an impressive display against a promising Empoli side. It was only due to a 92nd minute equaliser that prevented the Rossoblu from obtaining their first league […] Read more »

Fiorentina vs Milan

Analysis: Fiorentina Use Their Heads To Sink Sorry Milan

Fiorentina came from behind to pile the misery on Filippo Inzaghi and his AC Milan team with a 2-1 win at the Stadio Artemio Franchi. Ater leading for 80 minutes through a Mattia Destro goal, AC Milan absolutely collapsed in the last ten. Gonzalo Rodriguez and Joaquin were the culprits this time who scored two late goals to seal the game in dramatic fashion. This adds to the disappointment that followed from the last match where Hellas Verona managed to equalize in the dying minutes. The latest disappointment leaves the Rossoneri facing the growing threat of being left stranded in mid-table mediocrity as questions will undoubtedly be asked about the future of Filippo Inzaghi yet again. The Viola needed a boost after a 4-0 defeat to Lazio and midweek 1-1 Europa League draw with Roma, while the Rossoneri were downbeat following a 2-2 stalemate with Verona. Nenad Tomovic and Andrea Poli were suspended, while both sides had lengthy injury lists […] Read more »

Inzaghi: We Expect A Great Performance Against Fiorentina

AC Milan face an extremely difficult trip to the Stadio Franchi tonight, but their coach knows Fiorentina risk fatigue after their 4-0 defeat to Lazio and 1-1 Europa League draw with Roma. Unlike Milan, who are only competing in Serie A, the Viola are still in three different competitions. “We hope to be in better shape than them, even though we have some players returning from injury. Fiorentina are in good form ad I expect an open game,” said Inzaghi in his press-conference today. “We have everything it takes to put in a great performance. I hope to attack Fiorentina and rediscover our style of football. Complicated tests like this can help you get back on track.” “I showed the players recordings of their games played from September to December. We must find our confidence again, which was taken away due to injuries and inconsistency. Next week we should have Riccardo Montolivo, Nigel de Jong, Adil Rami and Mattia De […] Read more »

Fiorentina vs AC Milan – Team News, Tactics, Lineups And Prediction

FIORENTINA v AC MILAN Stadio Artemio Franchi, Florence Monday 15th March, 2015, 19:45 GMT  *** Filippo Inzaghi will take his AC Milan side to the Stadio Artemio Franchi on Monday evening hoping that the twin effects of Rome’s two sides will have softened Fiorentina before their meeting. Having been roundly beaten by Lazio in their last Serie A game before a tough Europa League draw against Roma, Vincenzo Montella’s side will have to retain their focus if they wish to maintain their good league form against the stuttering Rossoneri. Their defeat against Lazio was Fiorentina’s first defeat in 9 games, and they remain unbeaten in their last 6 home games, a record going back to the game against Napoli in November. AC Milan are unbeaten in four games themselves, but with three draws amongst them, have been unable to push up the table. There have been 149 matches between the two sides previously, with the Diavolo triumphing on 68 occasions, though […] Read more »
