Milan don’t have a lot of games in January, but the ones they do have are pretty important.
Our Coppa Italia opener, the Italian Supercup and two key Serie A clashes: such a thrilling start to the year! ➡https://t.co/GGdiIEkIRa— AC Milan (@acmilan) January 1, 2019
Il debutto in #TIMCup, la Supercoppa e il via del girone di ritorno in Serie A: il 2019 inizia con 4 grandi sfide ➡https://t.co/UM3DiaYm3U pic.twitter.com/UjpVmdamfO
First, Milan will take on Sampdoria in the Coppa Italia on January 12th, and then jet off to Saudi Arabia to take on Juventus in the Supercoppa on the 16th.
Milan then will hit the road again to take on Genoa on the 21st of January before returning home to face off against Napoli on January 26th.
Two league games against, with one of them a chance for revenge after Napoli came back to beat Milan in the first game of the season, and two difficult cup games. And two trips to the Sadio Luigi Ferraris to face both of the teams that call it home.
Let’s hope the time goes by fast.
