Coach Stefano Pioli says AC Milan needs to focus on seizing opportunities to avoid repeating the mistakes of the midweek and get back on the winning path in Serie A against Fiorentina on Sunday.
Milan fell to third in the standings after a goalless draw with Cremonese on Tuesday, squandering several clear goal-scoring chances, while Napoli are now adrift of the top after Saturday’s win over Udinese. 11 points .
” Winning means not giving in in front of a league table that we don’t like at the moment. We have the ability and desire to take the chance and get us back into the title race, ” Pioli told a news conference .
” It’s a very unusual schedule, with 24 races remaining and a lot of points still up for grabs. 2022 has been a very positive year for us, but we can’t stop now, ” he added.
