50-50: Who is favourite for Milan derby?

Serie A

AC Milan are in crisis again despite summer transfers and a new coach

While many are quick to blame AC Milan manager Sinisa Mihajlovic for the squad's recent troubles, ESPN FC's Gabriele Marcotti says he may not be completely at fault.

Napoli's manager Maurizio Sarri could have been in AC Milan's dugout this season. AC Milan's owner, Silvio Berlusconi, had been struck by the manner in which Sarri's Empoli team had played at San Siro last season in a 1-1 draw. It took Berlusconi back to another time when Arrigo Sacchi brought his Parma team to the stadium as if it were a job interview, captured Berlusconi's imagination and got hired in 1987.

Berlusconi's instincts were right about Sarri, as his Napoli team sits sixth in Serie A,...

AC Milan humiliated at home by Napoli in club's latest setback

Carlos Bacca and AC Milan were embarrassed in a 4-0 defeat at home on Sunday.

Following back-to-back wins over Palermo and Udinese last month, it appeared as though AC Milan had turned a corner. Sinisa Mihajlovic's side were playing with an element of self-belief, and their aggressive approach was unsettling their opposition.

Fast-forward a fortnight, and all that positive work has ultimately been undone after a shambolic 4-0 defeat to Napoli at San Siro on Sunday night, which followed their loss to Genoa last weekend.

The Rossoneri have long been a mentally fragile team,...

David Beckham picks absent AC Milan as Champions League favourite

David Beckham has a feeling Milan can still win the Champions League, even though they're not in it.
David Beckham has a feeling Milan can still win the Champions League, even though they're not in it.

No one can fault David Beckham for having an affinity for the clubs where he played during his career, however, perhaps ol' Becks was just a bit too partial when offering up his favourites to claim Champions League honours in 2015-16.

While in Dubai to promote the opening of a new Adidas store, Beckham asked who he thought would raise the trophy at the San Siro in late May. The former Manchester United, Real Madrid, LA Galaxy, AC Milan and PSG player then gave a most assured response: "I'm going...

AC Milan's Riccardo Montolivo is finally proving his worth in the midfield

Gab Marcotti of ESPN FC discusses Inter and AC Milan's poor performances, stating that AC Milan are the worse of the two thus far.

When Riccardo Montolivo joined AC Milan on a free transfer from Fiorentina in 2012, it was felt that the Rossoneri were making a shrewd signing. The Italian international was entering the prime of his career, and could play a crucial role in the rebuilding of the club's midfield after it let go of Clarence Seedorf and Gennaro Gattuso among others.

While his decision and the way in which he left Florence may have infuriated the Viola, then-manager Massimiliano Allegri signed the Lombardy-native because...

Sinisa Mihajlovic and AC Milan searching for consistency

Alessio Romagnoli was sent off as AC Milan slumped to a 1-0 defeat at Genoa on Sunday.

AC Milan fell to their third defeat in six games so far this season, with Genoa emerging as 1-0 winners from their Sunday lunchtime showdown.

A deflected free kick from Blerim Dzemaili was all that separated the two sides, but the Rossoneri produced their worst 45 minutes of football so far this season in the first half which put them at a significant disadvantage.

Boss Sinisa Mihajlovic bemoaned the poor display in the opening half, as the visitors had seemingly failed to prepare themselves for...

Mario Balotelli impressive as Milan hang on to beat Udinese 3-2

Mario Balotelli turned in a deeply promising all-round performance up front for Milan at Udinese.

Against Udinese on Tuesday night, AC Milan boss Sinisa Mihajlovic handed Mario Balotelli his first start since returning to the club and the Italian international responded with a highly impressive performance. However, the Rossoneri were far from convincing as they risked throwing away a three-goal lead, winning 3-2.

The first half in Udine couldn't have gone better from a Milan perspective. Balotelli's stunning free kick opened the scoring, before Giacomo Bonaventura and Cristian Zapata found...
