Legendary Milan tactician Arrigo Sacchi has warned Milan not to take the next three finals games lightly as the Serie A season draws to a close. Milan are two points clear of Inter and in the race for their first league title in over a decade as they attempt to complete the final Nerazzurrihopes for a second Scudetti in a row.
That Rossoneri First, face Hellas Verona at the Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi before taking on Atalanta at home. They eventually finish the season in Sassuolo where they would have a chance to lift the coveted trophy if things go smoothly in due course.
Speaking of Milan’s upcoming games, Sacchi is cautious about the first two of the three games.
“Verona, Atalanta and Sassuolo remain. The first two take the initiative from you, they try to get you to play at a tempo and speed that you are not used to. Milan must overcome them,” he said in an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport (via SempreMilan.it).
Sassuolo’s recent dip in form, particularly after the 6-1 draw with Napoli, is good news for Milan.
Inter, on the other hand, first meet Empoli at Giuseppe Meazza before traveling south to Sicily to play relegation contenders Cagliari. That Nerazzurri Finish your season at home against Sampdoria.
