MILAN, GAZZETTA – As reported by the Gazzetta, Milan made a great performance in Europe, which was missing for some time.
Milan, Gazzetta: “What a story in the Champions League”
“Milan will return to play an eighth of the Champions League as it hasn’t happened for 9 long years. The fat victory over Dinamo Zagreb (4-0) and the defeat of Salzburg with Chelsea allow Pioli to host the Austrians on 2 November with two results out of three available. The Devil’s last 4-0 in a Champions League away match was the one at Fenerbahce, designed by Shevchenko’s foursome. After the intersection with the Monza of Galliani and Berlusconi, after Paolo Maldini’s dinner with Zvone Boban in Zagreb, here is a thread that brings us back to Sheva: almost a magical rite to evoke the glorious past. After all, the mission of the talented Pioli is this: to turn back the clock.
“It does not mean that he already has a Milan equal to those who were winning in Europe, but the Croatian goleada is a fundamental step in the team’s maturation process. In the last edition and also in this Champions League, the young Milan has often shown insecurities that he does not have in the league. This time he managed a decisive match in the best possible way, as if it were Serie A. It is true that Dinamo was a small thing, but let’s not forget that they had not lost at home since December and that on this lawn they defeated Chelsea. It is Milan’s credit for having made it so small. The possible Europa League is already certain ”.
