GdS: February an opportunity for Milan


Matches are never won on paper and if anything the reason football can be so entertaining is that shock results happen often, but looking ahead at the fixture list is just a natural phenomenon for fans of clubs in gauging the difficulty of a schedule.

La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that the month of February represents a great opportunity for Milan who want to relaunch their Scudetto bid even more strongly after Saturday’s derby win, while their rivals Inter, Napoli, Juve and Atalanta have more challenging and intense fixtures.

Inter have Roma in the Cup (tonight), then they are away to Napoli in the league (Saturday), they have the first leg of the round of 16 of the Champions League against Liverpool on February 16 and close the month with games against Sassuolo at San Siro and versus Genoa at the Ferraris.
