Milan, Gazzetta: “The safety of Pioli”

MILAN, GAZZETTA- Pioli’s Milan still convinces, but this time in the Champions League as the Gazzetta writes on the pink page to date.

Milan, Gazzetta: “The safety of Pioli”

“At the final whistle, Stefano Pioli looked like one of his midfield mastiffs, but to the assault of the players in the white jersey: back and forth to tackle any Milan player who passed by, a five to Bennacer, a hug to Leao, two chat with Gabbia. A continuous pressing, as his Milan have been throughout the ninety minutes of Maksimir: a swerve at Champions level was needed and it came with a poker without history and a long list of missed opportunities “.

“Old Devil stuff, as the numbers tell: the Rossoneri have not scored four goals in a Champions League away match since 2005 at Fenerbahçe (a game that uncapped the European race of that year, then reached the semifinals) and in general it was only happened three more times in the club’s history. The spark is struck, now the last shot is missing to toast the return of the magnificent 16, nine years after the last time. Milan imposed themselves in Zagreb without distorting, on the contrary: Pioli designed a hyper offensive team, with all the best that the attacking department could offer on the pitch from the beginning “.
