Sinisa Mihajlovic needs tactical flexibility at AC Milan

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti reviews all the weekend action in the Italian Serie A.

Prior to Saturday's 1-0 loss to Juventus, AC Milan had gone five games unbeaten thanks to a tactical reshuffle from manager Sinisa Mihajlovic which saw them adopt a 4-3-3 system. The switch proved fruitful as the Rossoneri added solidity at the back while utilising the personnel at their disposal further upfield.

Victories over Sassuolo, Chievo and Lazio propelled them up the table, and the heavy 4-0 loss to Napoli in early October was gradually becoming a distant memory. However, after the warning...

AC Milan suffering from a lack of incisiveness in the final third

Carlos Bacca
Carlos Bacca toiled valiantly against the Juve defence. Too often, however, the service to him was poor.

It was a familiar story for AC Milan on Saturday night, as they fell to a 1-0 defeat in Turin at the hands of Juventus and saw their wait for a win over the Bianconeri stretch to seven games. The loss ended a five-game unbeaten streak for Sinisa Mihajlovic's side, and though they have seemingly solved one issue, another has presented itself.

The Rossoneri have long been plagued with issues in defence, as both the back line and the midfield have been singled out as significant weaknesses the past...

Tone of AC Milan's season could be set in Juventus clash

Milan will be out to extend their unbeaten streak to six when they face Juventus on Saturday.
Milan will be out to extend their unbeaten streak to six when they face Juventus on Saturday.

After the 4-0 defeat to Napoli at the start of October, things looked desperate for both AC Milan and coach Sinisa Mihajlovic. The Rossoneri continued to languish in the bottom half of the Serie A table, and it was unclear as to whether or not the Serbian tactician would survive their poor run of form.

Since that encounter at the San Siro, Milan have gone on a five-game unbeaten run, winning three and picking up two draws, and have in turn climbed up to sixth place in the league and to within...

Gianluigi Buffon's anniversary marked by the rise of Gianluigi Donnarumma

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti talks about the title contenders in Serie A this season, and where he feels they'll finish.
Inter Milan manager Roberto Mancini is humble about his side's chances of winning the Serie A this season.

This Thursday marks 20 years since Gianluigi Buffon made his debut in Serie A. The time has flown by since that bright winter's day at the Ennio Tardini when Superman fell to Earth and pulled on one of those garish tie-dye goalkeeper's jerseys that are so evocative of the game as it was in the 1990s.

Buffon was 17 years, 9 months and 21 days old. He had Velcroed a pair of gloves to his hands for the first time only five summers earlier and the man responsible for it changed his life forever. Nothing...

AC Milan keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma and echoes of Buffon

The ESPN FC crew answer your tweets on Gianluigi Donnarumma over Diego Lopez and whether or not FC panel hang out together.
AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma has enjoyed a fine start to his career at the San Siro.

Young AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma will have an opportunity to further embellish his growing reputation this Saturday when the Rossoneri travel to Turin to take on the Juventus side of his childhood idol, Gianluigi Buffon.

Donnarumma, 16, was born into a football-loving family -- his elder brothers Antonio and Alfredo currently play for Genoa and Salernitana, respectively -- in Castellammare di Stabia on the Neapolitan coast of southern Italy. He grew up as a Milan fan, but they...

AC Milan's Balotelli faces more frustration as injury curtails revival

ESPN FC's Alexis Nunes reacts to whether or not Mario Balotelli will be included in Italy's plans for next summer's Euro 2016 tournament.
Mario Balotelli had started to show signs he was ready to change.

When AC Milan opted to bring Mario Balotelli back on loan from Liverpool in the summer, the decision was met with excitement but also a hint of anxiety.

The 25-year-old enjoyed the most successful spell of his career at the San Siro between 2013 and 2014, but the club ultimately believed he was expendable and let him move to Anfield.

After a failed stint on Merseyside, his return to the Rossoneri was heralded as "make or break" for him. It wasn't the first time that that had been the case for Italy...
