It’s been another busy couple of weeks for Milan, with a couple of big wins against Barcelona and the big one against Atalanta coming up.
The Bianconeri won the Serie A title by beating Juventus, and have the second spot in the table.
They are also just one point behind Inter and third-placed Juventus, but they could still drop points and keep up their fight for a place in the Europa League.
Coach Massimiliano Allegri says the team will keep pushing for more points, and it will be a challenge to stay unbeaten for the whole season.
“We have a good squad,” Allegri told SportItalia.
“It’s the same with all our players.
It’s a great squad, with very talented players.
The team is working to improve and make it even better.
The coach is very strong, we have very good communication. “
I think we’re working well.

Inter will take on Roma in the last 16, but it’s the Bianconero who are the favourites.
They won the league, Copa del Rey, Champions League and Coppa Italia titles in the same season, but are now just one game behind Juventus in the Serie B table.
It’ll be a tough fight, with Inter having just beaten Roma.
Roma: ‘I feel good’ after ‘difficult’ Europa League defeat Rome’s last win over Inter was a 1-1 draw in the Champions Leagues final, and Allegri has been adamant the club have no plans to give up on the final four in the competition.
“Our aim is to reach the final, we know the competition is difficult, but we have no regrets.” “

Ricci’s Milan: A year of uncertainty with a new manager Allegri has a very difficult task on his hands to get the Rossoneri back to the top of the SerieA.
He’s managed a very poor start to his reign, with only two wins in five games, with three of those losses coming at the hands of Napoli and Juventus.
Inter’s Inter Milan: A year of upheaval at the helm, and a different look at the future After a rocky start to their tenure, Allegri is set to get a lot better this year.

The Inter manager’s first priority is to win the Serie E trophy, which he’s been aiming for for the last two seasons.
Meanwhile, Allegrio is also in talks with Inter to buy another Italian club in the summer, which is expected to involve a transfer fee.
Matic is out of contract at Manchester City, but he’ll be allowed to leave for free in the coming days, and he’s reportedly been offered a new five-year contract at the Etihad Stadium.
