With 12 games of the Serie A season remaining, Milan sit precariously placed outside the top-six. They’ve still every chance of qualifying for Europe next season, but they’ll need one Ante Rebic to be at his best. After a shorter stint against Juventus ending with a red card, the Croatian will be fired up for the return of league action against Lecce tonight.
Having struggled for form throughout the first-half of the season, Milan have since turned their fortunes around having lost just one game in all competitions since New Year. The Rossoneri look a much more solid outfit under Stefano Pioli and will be looking at this game against Genoa as a banker in their push for a top-six spot.
Milan won 1-0 in at the Mario Rigamonti Stadium in Brescia on Friday to extend their winning streak to three games and continue their climb back up the Serie A table. However, it took a string of saves by goalie Gianluigi Donnarumma and Ante Rebic’s third goal in a row to pull the Rossoneri’s chestnuts out of the fire in a game which the Rondinelle played better.
Too bad to be true. The Argentinian squad seen last night was an embarrassing collection of horrors assembled by their confused coach Jorge Sampaoli. Croatia, on the other hand, are one of the most dangerous side seen in the World Cup so far. They showed no mercy for the confused Albiceleste, which are now hanging by a thread in Pool C.
