AC Milan’s incredible run continue on Luigi Ferraris in Genoa. They are guests of Sampdoria this weekend in attempt of achieving a fifth victory in a row. Rossonerri play wonderful, all players are in great form; it seems that they could do nothing but to win against the shaky side.
The Calcio leaders relied on Zlatan Ibrahimovic one more time and didn’t go wrong; all they have to do is just to pass the ball to him and magic happens again. The towering striker scored magnificent three-points-worth goal against Fiorentina last weekend, showing amazing soccer skills. After the game, obviously satisfied, Massimiliano Allegri stated that Milan have finally found a mental balance and great team spirit. As it was already mentioned, Rossonerri have four wins in a row and eight in last nine games. They are current leaders with impressive nine victories out of thirteen games, but also they’re one of the best away teams with four victories in six games.
It seems that Rossonerri found a great coach after last year’s disappointment Leonardo. He managed with superstar’s egos and added some youth and motivation in midfield, including Mathieu Flamini, and Kevin-Prince Boateng in occasions. Milan plays more intense soccer, too good for a descending Calcio.
Rivals Sampdoria lose breath after having problems with Antonio Cassano. Doria’s President Garrone claimed that there’s no chance for the rebel to come back to the team, so when the President decides who will play and who will not, of course, crisis is unavoidable. They sit in eighth with the most draws in the league – seven and only four victories in 13 games so far.
Sampdoria will have to cope with Milan without several first team players. Except Cassano, Zauri, Padalino, Palombo, Obiang and Semioli are all out injured. For Rossonerri Pato, Inzaghi, Oddo, Pirlo and Antonini are out.
It smells like another victory for Milan. They go from strength to strength and there’s no reason why they shouldn’t go further with that. Their rival is shaky playing a lot of draws, but that’s not the most probable outcome for this weekend. Rossonerri have no problem playing away. With Ibracadabra on the pitch Milan are certain favorites in any Calcio game. He makes everything to be easier for Allegri. Former Juventus President Luciano Moggi heaps praise for his former player, agreeing with that: “The Rossoneri are playing for him, leaving Ronaldinho out, and they no longer need Andrea Pirlo’s passing.”
