Vincenzo Montella has so far managed to deliver positive results with AC Milan, From what we have seen in the first half of the season, they are a much better side than in recent seasons and could aim for a spot in the Champions League. They are currently 5th in the standings and only 5 points separate them from the second placed Roma. Consistent performances at a higher level will be the key for Rossoneri in the second half of the season. They went into the winter break on the back of a 2 match win-less run, a 1-0 loss to Roma and a 0-0 draw against an inform Atalanta.
Cagliari are 14th in the league and have a 13 point cushion over the relegation zone. The newly promoted side’s core ambition this season is to stay up in the Serie A and by so far that are meeting the expectations. Similar to many teams of their stature, 6 of their 7 wins this season have come at home while they are one of the worst teams in away games. They lost 7 of their 9 away games, managing just 1 win.
