Scorers: Bonaventura 5 (M), Thereau 31 (U), De Paul 73 (U)
Milan took an early lead, lost Giacomo Bonaventura to injury and fell apart in a 2-1 defeat to Udinese, but Rodrigo De Paul could’ve seen red.
The Rossoneri needed to get back on track after one point from three rounds and a Coppa Italia exit to Juventus. Davide Calabria and Riccardo Montolivo were sidelined, while Udinese had Silvan Widmer and Sven Kums carrying knocks.
Napoli inflicted a hammer blow on Milan’s top three hopes with a hugely entertaining 2-1 win at San Siro thanks to Lorenzo Insigne and Jose Callejon.
This was a head-to-head for the Champions League places and the Rossoneri now have one point from their last five meetings with the Partenopei, including a 4-0 defeat here last season. Alessio Romagnoli and Manuel Locatelli sat out bans, with Mattia De Sciglio, Mati Fernandez and Riccardo Montolivo injured, so not 100 per cent fit Davide Calabria started again with Gustavo Gomez and Jose Sosa. Kalidou Koulibaly and Faouzi Ghoulam were on international duty with Vlad Chiriches injured.
Milan came back from 2-0 down to grab a thrilling 2-2 draw away to Torino after Gigio Donnarumma saved a penalty, but Alessio Romagnoli saw red.
The Rossoneri won 3-2 in the opening round thanks to Gianluigi Donnarumma saving a last-gasp Andrea Belotti penalty, while Milan also got the Coppa Italia 2-1 victory four days ago at San Siro, so the Granata were out for revenge. Leandro Castan and Cristian Molinaro missed out, but Iago Falque returned from injury. Davide Calabria made his full comeback, as Mattia De Sciglio and Luca Antonelli were sidelined.

Italian Supercup: Juventus 1:1 (3:4) AC Milan - match report 23.12 ||webmaster
Milan have won the Supercoppa Italiana after a 1-1 draw with Juventus, as Gigio Donnarumma’s penalty shoot-out save on Paulo Dybala proved decisive.
This was traditionally a clash between the Scudetto winners and Coppa Italia holders, but as Juve got both those trophies in 2016, their opponents in Doha were beaten Coppa Finalists Milan. The Rossoneri’s last piece of silverware was the Supercoppa in 2011, when Max Allegri was in charge. Leonardo Bonucci, Dani Alves and not 100 per cent fit Andrea Barzagli missed out, while Miralem Pjanic was preferred to Paulo Dybala. Milan had beaten Juventus 1-0 with a Manuel Locatelli scorcher in Serie A in October.
Serie A: AC Milan 0:0 Atalanta - match report 18.12 ||webmaster
Milan were denied by two goal-line clearances and the woodwork, but Atalanta had their chances to in a foggy and frantic 0-0 draw.

Mati Fernandez, Riccardo Montolivo and Davide Calabria missed out, but Jack Bonaventura, Juraj Kucka and Luca Antonelli returned. Carlos Bacca was left on the bench in favour of Gianluca Lapadula. Atalanta had to do without Etrit Berisha, Alberto Paloschi and Abdoulay Konko.
Serie A: Roma 1:0 AC Milan - match report 12.12 ||webmaster
Scorer: Nainggolan 63 (R)
Radja Nainggolan’s screamer and a Wojciech Szczesny penalty save on M’Baye Niang gave Roma victory over Milan and second place.
These two sides were locked together in second place, so the winner would emerge as Scudetto contender to leaders Juventus. Kevin Strootman won an emergency appeal against his two-match ban and was therefore available, but Francesco Totti, Mohamed Salah, Leandro Paredes and Alessandro Florenzi missed out. The visitors had to completely transform their midfield, losing Giacomo Bonaventura, Carlos Bacca, Riccardo Montolivo, Davide Calabria and suspended Juraj Kucka. Ex-Roma man Andrea Bertolacci got his first appearance since sustaining a thigh injury in August.
Gianluca Lapadula’s late goal snatched Milan’s 2-1 victory over Crotone after Alex Cordaz saved the M’Baye Niang penalty.
The Rossoneri needed a victory to stay in second place and within four points of leaders Juventus, but missed Carlos Bacca, Giacomo Bonaventura, Mati Fernandez, Davide Calabria and Riccardo Montolivo. Bottom of the table Crotone were without Aleksander Tonev, Djamel Mesbah and Claitos Dos Santos, so Bruno Martella stepped in.
Serie A: AC Milan vs. Crotone - match preview 2.12 ||webmaster
High-flying AC Milan welcome minnows Crotone to the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza on Sunday hoping to keep pace with leaders Juventus at the top of the table. Vincenzo Montella’s side are currently four points off the top, and in Crotone, they face lowly opponents for the second weekend running after their trip to Empoli last time out.
Milan have exceeded expectations this season, and haven’t lost at San Siro since early September. With their great run of form, it won’t be a surprise to see the Rossoneri canter to a win. According to most bookmakers, the odds are stacked heavily against Crotone at 11.50, hence betting on a Milan win is a decision which is as easy as it gets.
The likes of Suso and Gianluca Lapadula have been in fine touch in front of goal which has seen the Diavolo sit level with second-placed Roma on 29 points. A win on Sunday afternoon would set them up nicely for their next league game: away at Roma.
In contrast, Crotone have failed to carry their Serie B form from last season into this as they find themselves struggling in the relegation zone. The Rossoblu have registered a single win all season, and collected only six points from their 14 games. Only a better goal difference than Palermo has kept them from hitting rock-bottom.
Crotone’s last visit—their only one—to AC Milan came a year ago, when they faced the Rossoneri in a fourth round tie of the Coppa Italia. On that day, the plucky Calabrian outfit—then a Serie B club—took their famous opponents into extra-time. However, two late goals from Giacomo Bonaventura and Mbaye Niang ensured a 3-1 Milan win.
Despite Milan being heavy favourites, it is worth noting that Crotone performed admirably in their previous trip to San Siro. Inter’s 3-0 win in early November was as flattering to the Nerazzurri as it was undeserving for Davide Nicola’s side.
With Juventus taking on fifth-placed Atalanta and Roma squaring off to fourth-placed Lazio in a derby, chances are high that a Milan win coupled with results elsewhere could make for a profitable weekend for the Rossoneri.
Going by both teams' recent run of results, it would take Crotone a display for the ages to upset the hosts. The last time Montella’s men faced a promoted side, they scraped through against Pescara in a 1-0 win. If Crotone manage to stop the in-form Suso, Lapadula and Bonaventura, they could spring a surprise. That, however, looks unlikely.

Scorers: Lapadula 15, 77 (M), Saponara 17 (E), Suso 61 (M), Costa og 64 (M)
Gianluca Lapadula bagged his first Serie A brace with Suso also on target as Milan recovered from a shaky start to crush Empoli 4-1.
Vincenzo Montella rested several stars and had Alessio Romagnoli back from injury. Manuel Pucciarelli, Vincent Laurini and Levan Mchedlidze were sidelined. Milan had one defeat in the last 10 games, whereas the Tuscans had won just one in the same period.
