Massimiliano Allegri believes that AC Milan are on the verge of winning their 18th Italian championship and claims that four more points will see them win the title for the first time since 2004.
AC Milan have an eight-point advantage over second-placed Inter and also boast a better head-to-head record against their city-rivals.
The Serie A title race could be decided this weekend if AC Milan defeat Bologna at San Siro on Sunday and Inter fail to beat Cesena away from home the day before.
“Maybe Sunday won’t be enough, but we should be thinking only of getting these four points and winning the title,” Allegri told Sky Italia.
AC Milan could also accomplish a domestic double, as they are involved in the semi-finals of the Coppa Italia. Milan were held to a 2-2 draw by Palermo in the first leg last week, but Allegri is confident of progressing to the final:
“There’s also an Italian Cup semi-final to play so we’ll try to achieve these two objectives which are the most important things.”
