The Serie A side have not won since April, and they have now failed to win in seven consecutive matches.
The result is the first time since January that Milan have not been in the top three, with their opponents, Juventus, having also been in that position.
A lack of intensity from Milan has been blamed for the lack of goals and, in particular, for their inability to score on the counter-attack.
Possible solutions include an increase in the number of players in the attacking third to accommodate the increased number of forwards, while a shift away from a 3-5-2 formation in order to allow for more width in the centre of the pitch has also been suggested.
“We don’t feel the pressure from the opposition,” said Milan coach Roberto Mancini.
“We don�t think we can win if we have not prepared ourselves properly.
It�s the same with the game against Juventus.
We have to make sure we give everything we have in order for the game to continue like this. “
But it is not a simple game, and this is a football match.
We have to make sure we give everything we have in order for the game to continue like this.
It is important to put in a good performance against a team like Juventus.
It will be difficult for Milan, but it�s important to show that we have confidence in our team.”
I think we are ready to play.
We showed it against Juventus and now we are preparing to play against the other two teams in the table.
It is a big game and we need to be ready for it.
“Mancini is not afraid of facing Juventus in the second leg of the league play-offs, but Milan are not a side to take lightly.
Juventus are on a two-game winning run and the team have beaten Milan three times in Serie A and have scored in every game in which they have played.
Milan, meanwhile, are struggling for form and are still searching for a result in the league.
Last season they won only two of their first seven league games and have lost three of their last four, although they are currently eight points clear of second-placed Inter in Serie B. Milano’s win over Milan was their first in Serie D since a 3.5-1 win at Palermo in May 2011.
