Serie A – remaining fixtures
Normally I would be too worried about our UCL QF against Barcelona to think about Serie A. But due to the ridiculous injury situation, and knowing we don’t have an honest chance of winning that competition, the QF has become an inconvenient factor, an annoying interruption to our league campaign, bound to wear out the remaining players, as our squad atm. is so paper thin that even without this disturbance, we’d struggle to keep a determined Juve behind us.
Fortunately, we have managed to come out of the difficult third part of the season successfully, in spite of a loss to Lazio and draws against Juve and Napoli, as we’ve taken over 1st place and even have a 4 point advantage (effectively 3 as they win if the two sides end the season level on points).
Since we’re now entering the last quarter of the season, I thought it’s time to look at our schedule, which, on paper looks manageable but, knowing that nasty surprises might wait around any corner, it is of course way too early to start celebrating. It is worth noting, though, that 6 of our 9 matches are played at the San Siro, and in terms of positions in the table, the best side we’ll meet is the 7th placed Catania.
Matchday 30: Catania-Milan
Matchday 31: Milan-Fiorentina
Matchday 32: Chievo-Milan
Matchday 33: Milan-Genoa
Matchday 34: Milan-Bologna
Matchday 35: Siena-Milan
Matchday 36: Milan-Atalanta
Matchday 37: Inter-Milan
Matchday 38: Milan-Novara
How incredibly sweet it would be, after having beaten the rat's Inter to the title last season, to do the same thing to Conte's Juve this season :hopeful:
