AC Milan's signings, expectations force adjustments for Vincenzo Montella

Gab Marcotti explains the dire situation Milan could find themselves in if they fail to finish in Serie A's top four.

The joke doing the rounds is that Leonardo Bonucci's move from Juventus to AC Milan managed to make both teams' defending worse. It's harsh, but it's also not a million miles removed from reality.

Bonucci's arrival forced Milan manager Vincenzo Montella to disassemble his scheme and switch to a back three. At this stage last year, they were third; currently, they're 11th. Meanwhile, Juve have dropped from first to fourth but, more worryingly, have conceded more than twice as many goals -- 13 to...

Leonardo Bonucci gets 4/10 after red card as AC Milan shut out again

Leonardo Bonucci's reckless elbow drew a red card which left his teammates short-handed against Genoa.

Ten-man AC Milan were held to a goalless draw by Genoa at the San Siro on Sunday, with Leonardo Bonucci receiving his marching orders in the first half. To their credit, the Rossoneri pushed on for the win despite the setback, but they were unable to find a breakthrough as the pressure remains on Vincenzo Montella.

There was a significant improvement in the second-half performance, as even with the player deficit, Milan looked the more dangerous side as they mounted sustained pressure...

Andre Silva gets 5/10 as AC Milan are shut out by AEK Athens at San Siro

Giannis Anestis of AEK Athens denied AC Milan several times in the second half with some brilliant saves.

AC Milan were held to a goalless draw by AEK Athens at the San Siro on Thursday night as Milan produced an infuriatingly uninspiring performance. Vincenzo Montella's side remain top of Group D, but the Milan coach and players were rightly jeered off the pitch after the full-time whistle.

Derby showdown an opportunity for AC Milan to make a statement

Former AC Milan midfielder Demetrio Albertini has described the Milan derby as something special as they prepare to face Inter in Serie A.

The last time these two giants of Italian football crossed paths, they played out an extraordinary and historic Derby della Madonnina.

On April 15, AC Milan and Inter clashed in the first lunchtime kick-off in the history of the fixture, just days after Yonghong Li had completed his takeover of the former to officially put both side sides under Chinese ownership. With the Chinese viewership in mind, a predicted 862,000,000-strong tuned in to what turned out to be a superb spectacle.
