AC Milan snaps winless run

AC Milan snaps winless run

AC Milan lock horns with U.S. Salernitana with hopes of ending their winless run across all competitions. During their last match in the league, they suffered a 2-1 defeat against Fiorentina. Additionally, the second leg of their Round-of-16 in the Champions League ended in a goalless draw against Tottenham. With that, Milan is eager to end this streak, as it could cost them their spot in the league table. On the other hand, Salernitana wants more wins to bring them in a more safe spot in the league table. They are just two spots away from the drop zone, and they cannot afford to go down the drop zone. This meeting will be hosted by Milan on March 14, 2023, at 3:45 AM (GMT+8).

The hosts are the better teams in the only three encounters they had across all competitions. The hosts won two of those three meetings, and drawing one, as the visitors remain winless against them. In the league table, these two teams are quite far from each other, and it was the hosts who has a better record. They are currently at the fourth spot of the league table with 47 points, same record with the team at the fifth. Moreover, they cannot afford to continue being winless as the fifth squad might be ahead of them. As for the visitors, they are at the 16th spot with just 25 points. However, if they lose in this match, there is a chance for them to drop to the 17th spot.

Serie A: AC Milan

Milan is coming into this game from a goalless draw against Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League. This is already the second leg of their Round-of-16 match, and they are lucky to establish a lead in the first leg. In the league, Milan is actually doing pretty well, winning three of their last five league games. They are currently 21 points behind the league leaders, Napoli, so a top spot finish seems impossible for them. Milan is the defending champions of the Serie A, but it seems like it is unlikely to be defended. They failed to be as impressive this season due to their inconsistencies. They are hoping to seal their spot in the top four for a chance of qualifying in the Champions League.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is possible to start in this match for the first time for Milan. However, they remain to be without Junior Messias due to the thigh injury he sustained against Tottenham. Fortunately, Ismael Bennacer is expected to return in this match.

Just like their opponents, they are also coming from a goalless draw against Sampdoria in the league. They are currently sitting at the 16th of the league table, and are just two points away from the 15th spot. If they were able to win in this match, they could be at the 17th. On the other hand, a loss could cost them to drop at the 17th, as they are just a point ahead of the 17th. As they enter the final run in the league, they are just hoping to avoid the drop zone, which is possible. They are six points ahead from the drop zone. However, their recent form raises concerns and questions. If they will continue playing the way they are playing right now, they might face relegation.

William Troost-Ekong is still out for Salernitana due to his knee injury, while Pasquale Mazzocchi is already expected to return in the starters.
