The Rossoneri retained their two-point lead at the top of the table with this evening’s 3-1 victory at the Stadio Bentegodi.
“With so much enthusiasm around us, the important thing now is to try to give a sense of calm,” the technical director told Milan TV.
“It was a match, unlike the one against Lazio, where we started very strong and dominated for the first 20-25 minutes, seeing a goal ruled marginally offside.
“If you go behind in that situation and you are not ready, it can spark a crisis. When there are so few matches left and you can see the finish line, if the team isn’t sufficiently mature to react in the right way, they could lose their heads.
“I really have to congratulate the lads, they did everything that was asked of them, including those who came in off the bench.”
“We are close because there are only two rounds left. These are not easy games, but neither was the one we played this evening,” added Maldini.
“I watched Atalanta today, they are alive and kicking, still challenging for Europe and full of top level players. We are playing at San Siro, a packed house.
“There will be a lot of pressure on us, but we can handle it.”
Milan catch Verona on the break and restore their lead in superb fashion 🤩
