Nesta To The Rescue

Could this be the start of Milan’s rise in the Serie A? I hope so. Their 2-1 win away to Chievo Verona was enough to lift them up to position 6 and  help put their once fledging title campaign back on track. It was once again a classic description of the Italian job as the rossoneri left it late to come from behind and steal the much needed victory.

Much thanks is indeed credited to Alessandro Nesta who scored both goals. Milan’s win against Real Madrid on Wednesday night in the Champions League seems to have given them a new sense of belief. After a round of poor showing Coach Leonardo is finally getting the results he wants.

The ‘rookie’ now knows that he cannot afford to slow down on this momentum and he should do everything within his capabilities to  maintain the high levels of morale in the team. Milan’s main competition for the scudetto Inter and Juventus also produced wins while Fiorentina succumbed to a shock home defeat to Napoli.

Milan look very comfotable. Their strikers seem to be working smoothly and their star player Pato is showing just why he is going to be the next best striker not only in Europe but in the world. His perfect strikes in their mid-week champions  league clash shows a class of talent that is only associated with the greats.

When Milan are on a good roll, it is petty hard to stop them. Ronaldinho’s improving form should also be a cause of worry for other teams. The season is just beginning to take shape and by the look of it, it is going to be a very competitive one.
