Milan pile the pressure on Juventus
Saturday 05 May 2012
Milan go into tomorrow's derby with Internazionale at San Siro looking to wipe out Juventus's lead at the top of Serie A after closing the gap to one point in midweek.
Juve only drew with Lecce on Wednesday thanks to goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon's late error and travel to Cagliari knowing that the Rossoneri are hot on their heels.
Buffon has been publically forgiven by his team-mates and Milan, who will be without injured Brazilian defender Thiago Silva, are sure to face a tough game against Andrea Stramaccioni's side, even though Inter's chances of qualifying for the Champions League are slim.
In Spain, Pep Guardiola has his last home game as Barcelona coach when local rivals Espanyol visit the Nou Camp tonight. "I don't like farewells, but I have been a person in the public eye," Guardiola said. "I hope the people react as they always do, in a natural way. Meanwhile Malaga, in fourth, visit fifth-placed Atletico Madrid for a game that will go a long way to decide the final Champions League place.
