AC Milan want to win the Coppa Italia to ensure that there is something tangible to show for the 2023/24 campaign and that journey continues tonight against Atalanta.
As highlighted by Milan News, there is an immense desire at the club to win the Coppa Italia this season given the tournament looks very open and it could be a launchpad to better things in the near future for a young team.
It is fair to say that Milan came into this season expecting to be in the thick of the Serie A title race, and whilst that could still end up being the case, they have been cut adrift from Inter and Juventus for the time being.
The team’s league performance has improved to the point that it nearly matches that of Inter and Juventus, but a trophy triumph is desired. While achieving the Europa League is possible, it will be far harder than taking home the Coppa Italia.
Milan easily defeated Cagliari in the previous round, and they now visit Atalanta in a match that is difficult to predict. In the event that the Rossoneri advance to the semifinals, they will take on Fiorentina in a two-leg match that they are expected to win.
The Coppa Italia can cheer up the supporters and maintain a good vibe around the club during what has been a difficult season thus far.
