After beating AC Milan in Saudi Arabia to win the Italian Super Cup, the team lost at home to Empoli (0:1). During the next week, however, the Nerazzurri managed to rehabilitate themselves. First, without any significant problems, they beat Cremonese away (2:1), and then in the quarterfinals of the Italian Cup, Inter beat Atalanta. Matteo Darmian scored the only goal of the game. We should remember the UEFA Champions League. The Nerazzurri will play the first leg of the last eight in the main European club competition at the Giuseppe Meazza on February 22 against Porto.
What is going on with Milan? It's a question that even fans of Serie A are asking right now. The team is approaching the upcoming Milan derby with a three-game losing streak and three straight resounding defeats. And suppose the defeat of 0:3 from Inter in a Supercup encounter and a failure of 0:4 in the away match of the championship with Lazio can be explained. In that case, the home loss of 2:5 last round from a weak Sassuolo is beyond reason. Milan lost 1:3 after the first half, 1:5 by the 80th minute, and had no chance of success.
Overall, after the start of 2023, the Rossoneri have only one win - an away win over Salernitana (2:1). In addition, there is the departure from the Italian Cup by Torino, draws in the championship with Roma and Lecce. The team needs to do something urgently because, as well as for Inter, one more front will open for AC Milan very soon - the first leg of the round of 16 finals of the Champions League against Tottenham on February 14 at the San Siro.
