The Rossoneri will play at the Meazza against Cremonese and Lazio, two decisive matches for fourth place. The last defeat in front of fans dates back to January 29 against Sassuolo
Milan has rediscovered Fort San Siro. Do you know the January downturn? Five slaps from Sassuolo at home, two more from Turin in the Italian Cup and the comeback suffered by Roma in the last minutes? Forget them, because Pioli was able to ferry the team back to its safe haven: the Meazza.
To understand why the San Siro effect has become fundamental again, we need to take a step back to three months ago, 29 January, Milan-Sassuolo 2-5. A Rossoneri Caporetto. After conceding goals and whistles, however, Pioli brought together his friends and invited the team to reset everything. The Meazza pushed Pioli towards the Reggio Emilia trio with a series of sold outs. And in the last three months it has restarted like this: since the knockout against Sassuolo, Milan have never lost at home in all competitions. Zoom: three points against Turin, Atalanta and Lecce in the league, two wins against Tottenham and Napoli in the Champions League. The most important. The two draws against Salernitana and Empoli are also added. Total – seven useful achievements in a row.
Against Lecce there were more than 72,000 fans. Yet another seasonal sold out. And now the Rossoneri will play at home against Cremonese and Lazio, two crucial matches to secure fourth place, pending the semi-final against Inter. On Wednesday there will be head-to-head against Ballardini, while on Saturday it will be the Biancocelesti’s turn, in a match ball with a view to the Champions League. The direct clash will probably still go to Sarri, given the 4-0 in the first leg, but three points are worth gold. As well as those against Cremonese. Between now and the end of the championship, Milan will also play at home against Sampdoria and Verona. Fort San Siro can come in handy.
