After break, three factors are crucial to getting AC Milan's season on track

Gab Marcotti explains why the Europa League could prove to be Milan's best hope of Champions League football in 2018.

Fixtures after an international break don't get much more difficult than Napoli away, but that's what faces AC Milan when the players reconvene this week. Vincenzo Montella was afforded some much-needed respite prior to the break with a win over Sassuolo, but the pressure will be back on next weekend.

The Rossoneri sit in seventh place in the Serie A table after 12 games and are nine points adrift of the top four, with Roma and Lazio both having a game in hand.

To add to their problems aside from...

Suso sends AC Milan to international break with much-needed win

The top five in Serie A are all within seven points, but will Napoli maintain their narrow lead over the rest of the pack?

It wasn't always pretty, but AC Milan secured a 2-0 win over Sassuolo on Sunday night with goals from Alessio Romagnoli and Suso.

Much was made of this game and what it could mean for Vincenzo Montella's future at the club given the poor start to the campaign, and so he will be delighted to see his players seal the victory ahead of the international break.

Positives

Milan visibly grew in confidence after going ahead, and they looked more composed and settled on the ball, particularly in the second...

Montella laughs off exit talk, but AC Milan must deliver at Sassuolo

Kylian Mbappe gets spooked, Neymar has a reunion and Milan reveal a Halloween-inspired tifo against Juventus in the Sweeper.

With just one win in their last seven games in all competitions, AC Milan's season has deviated way off track as they fall further adrift of their rivals for a Champions League qualification spot. They don't look anywhere near capable of going all the way in the Europa League either.

Just 19 competitive games into the campaign, there has been little sign of sustained and consistent improvement under Vincenzo Montella, and the calls for change only seem to be getting louder.

In contrast, the Milan...

Andre Silva, AC Milan blanked again by AEK Athens in Europe

AC Milan still hold a comfortable lead over AEK Athens and Rijeka in Group D despite their 0-0 draw in Greece.

After 180 minutes of football home and away, AC Milan were unable to break down AEK Athens as they were held to another goalless draw, this time in Greece on Thursday. Riccardo Montolivo hit the post for the Rossoneri, but they rarely looked like finding the back of the net in another drab performance as the pressure continues to increase on Vincenzo Montella.

Max Allegri's tactical change helps Juventus pile on AC Milan's problems

Paulo Dybala and Juventus only added to AC Milan's woe on Saturday.

Juventus went old school for the trip to take on AC Milan in a packed San Siro (78,000-plus fans, kinda like the good ol' days). Not just because not one of the summer signings cracked Max Allegri's starting XI, but for the way they set up. They were tidy and organized, they soaked up the pressure and they waited for their superstars to make a difference. On Saturday night, Gonzalo Higuain was the difference-maker, notching both goals in a 2-0 win.

Beyond the scoring, Higuain was the player he can...

Kalinic fails to take his chances as Milan fall in 2-0 defeat to Juventus

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

AC Milan fell in a 2-0 defeat to Juventus at a sold-out San Siro on Saturday, with a Gonzalo Higuain double sealing the win for the visitors. After falling short against Lazio, Roma and Inter already this season, it was a familiar story for the Rossoneri as they failed to pass another test.

Positives

Milan started the game well with a good tempo and urgency to their play, while they didn't lack commitment as they matched Juve for energy. Frustratingly, they couldn't take advantage of that period,...
