AC Milan looking to end Juventus monopoly in Serie A as they lead defending champions by 10 points

Brahim Diaz-Zlatan Ibrahimovic-AC Milan

The Rossoneri are soaring high in the Italian top flight this season as the current leaders.

Juventus could have ruled Serie A for the last decade – winning the titles in every single season – but it looks like their dominance is soon to be ended by Milan.

Surprisingly, Milan, who were deemed as the club in transition last season, have been spectacular this term, not losing a single match yet.

This is further coincided by Juve’s uncharacteristic start to this season under Andrea Pirlo as they are currently fifth in the table with six draws and a defeat. Furthermore, they are trailing Milan by 10 points.

AC Milan manager Stefano Pioli was made the permanent in the latter stages of the last season and also later rewarded with a contract despite strong links with Ralf Rangnick, who was reported to take the club to the next level.

However, sticking with Pioli is paying dividends for Milan as the Italian gaffer has turned them into a force to be reckoned with.

The Rossoneri were victorious in the derby against arch-rivals Inter Milan while their recent victory against Lazio was a nail-biting one, with Theo Hernandez scoring the winner in the stoppage time.

Pioli has arguably one of the strongest squads in Europe at his disposal led by Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is currently out injured.

The 39-year-old is an elite example of a player who is ageing like a fine wine after finding the nets 10 times this season, the third-highest in the league.

Milan can take advantage of Juve’s struggles to have a crack at the Serie A title after a decade in time.
