AC Milan 2023/24 Season Predictions

This season we predict AC Millan will finish in the Champions League. They will be looking to have good cup runs and compete for the league however we dont believe their squad is good enough to compete in every competition and as a result they may drop some points. They are good enough to qualify for Europe once again and have many star players such as Rafael Leao and Theo Hernandez. They could push for the league however teams like Napoli and Inter Milan we believe simply have stronger squads with more squad depth.
