AC Milan fixtures – The restless schedule await
AC Milan will be in a hectic run of fixtures when club footballs resume, starting this weekend as Serie A and Champions League return with massive games.
AC Milan fixtures
Rossoneri started the season with undefeated runs (3W in 3 games), one of which was the crucial away victory 1-2 at AS Roma.
Stefano Pioli assembled a strong side, which was a mix of new signings and current pillars. Christian Pulisic has been outstanding with goals and assists; Rafael Leao was back in the scoresheet for the first time in months, while Ruben Loftus-Cheek started to show his class.
With two goals in three games, Captain America Pulisic is Milan’s Player of the Month in his first month with the club.
The fans will need their players to be at their top form for the next 22 days with seven massive games.
The first game of seven will be the Milan derby when they take on Inter this weekend.
Champions League and league games will take turns in 22 days, as there will be two Champions League clashes and one mid-week Serie A round.
In other words, Stefano Pioli will have to make the most of his squad, and the depth has improved significantly compared to last season. However, we will only know for sure after this run of games.
Champions League Group of Death and clashes with Inter, Lazio
Right after the derby, Milan will host Newcastle United as the opening game of the UEFA Champions League campaign. Every game will count since they are in the Group of Death – Group F with Paris Saint-Germain, Borussia Dortmund, and Newcastle.
Lazio will be another tough test when Serie A’s last season runner-up is looking to bounce back to top positions, having won only one game in the first three league matches.
Next is a trip far from home in Germany, when Milan visits Dortmund’s Signal Iduna Park.
Three days later is another away trip to Genoa, as Milan will look to close the 22-day run before the next international break coming in mid-October.
