Milan hosts Bologna at the “San Siro”, while Inter and Napoli have scored victories, but will they be able to face the pressure of the Rossoneri today (Monday).
Stefano Pioli seemed quite confident during yesterday’s press conference before the match, where he said that his players have luck in hand. If the team wins the remaining eight games, they will be crowned Serie A champions for the first time in more than ten years.
The Reds saw Napoli join them at the top of the table thanks to a basic 3-1 victory over Atalanta last weekend, while Inter beat Juventus at the Allianz Stadium, while they are three points away from the top of the table.
The list of Milan matches before the end of the season is probably not the easiest. They will visit Turin next weekend before facing Lazio (as a guest), Fiorentina (as a native), Verona (as a guest), Atalanta (as a native) and Sassuolo (as a guest).
Napoli also has some tricky matches ahead as they will host Fiorentina and Roma in the next two games. They will then visit Empoli and face Sassuolo (as a native), Turin (as a guest), Genoa (as a native) and Spezia (as a guest).
On the other hand, Inter will meet Verona at the San Siro in the next match of Serie A and then Spezia (as a guest), Roma (as a native), Bologna (as a guest), Udinese (as a guest), Empoli (as native), Cagliari (as guest) and Samp (as native).
The match against Bologna is what was rescheduled on Monday after a COVID-19 explosion at the Stadio Dall’Ara.
As Pioli said, Milan is in control of their fate, but their opponents are so close that any mistake from them would see their opponents pass over them in the standings. The Scudetto’s race is open and although it all depends on Milan, Pioli’s players will have to withstand the pressure in the final games of the season.
