The biggest risk Milan face against Inter

Against eternal rivals of Inter, AC Milan face one of the most important games of the season risking not only Coppa Italia elimination but much, much more.

Today, at 20:45 CET, at San Siro, AC Milan face eternal city rivals of Inter in Coppa Italia quarter-finals. While the Rossoneri have been underwhelming so far in Serie A many consider this match as a perfect opportunity to bounce back after several consecutive flops.

In the pre-match press conference coach Gennaro Gattuso commented on the game and considered today’s challenge as a World Cup final and the perfect opportunity to turn things around this season. Club president Yonghong Li has also arrived in Milano today and will be present at San Siro to support the red and blacks in this difficult period.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport today, in the event of elimination from the Italian Cup this evening against Inter, the split between Milan fans, the club and the team would become very deep. The biggest fear is that such a fracture would be definitive and incurable putting in risk the entire new project of the Chinese ownership.
