Well, with Juventus behind the team, it’s time to focus on an even more important match. The Derbies della Madonnina are always the most important fixtures for Milan during the season, so the prospect of climbing closer to 4th place and a Champions League place is just an added bonus.

Milan already beat Inter Milan in the Coppa Italia earlier in the season, so they’re going to be gunning for revenge and to keep Milan from overtaking them in the race for the final Champions League spot.

It’ll all be settled tomorrow at the San Siro.

On to the links.
