Anybody who had predicted that AC Milan would actually top the table at this stage of the season would have been deemed overly positive regarding the club considering their performance last season. However, the 20/21 campaign has completely changed things for the once European Giants.
Today, Milan managed to defeat Crotone 4-0 at home to extend their stronghold at the top of the Serie A table. Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Ante Rebic managed to score a brace each, with Hakan Calhanoglu assisting both of Rebic’s goals while Theo Hernandez and Rafael Leao set up Zlatan’s.
The Rossoneri are now two points clear from their city rivals Inter, who have 47 points from 21 games played.
Arguably one of the most important factors behind the success of Stefano Pioli’s team is that of their recruitment process that saw them land Brahim Diaz, Sandro Tonali, Fikayo Tomori, Soualiho Meite, Diogo Dalot and Mario Mandzukic this year to bulk up their squad very respectably.
Transfer insiders Fabrizio Romano and Francesco Porzio praised the business conducted by Paulo Maldini and co. at AC Milan, saying that it is not a coincidence that Milan have found themselves signing so many good players in such a short span of time for a nominal fee, while a majority of them are on loan.
The Rossoneri are not taking things casually and are hell bent on retaining their position at the top of the Serie A table till the end of the season. It is safe to say that the San Siro Reds are well equipped to boost their chances of usurping Juventus significantly.
