Kick-off: Saturday, February 7, 2:30 CET.
Venue: San Siro, Milan. Italy.
Milan Maintaining the Momentum.
Coming off some very good performances with convincing results in these last games, and also misses with some good fortune A.C Milan now find themselves in second place with the help of David Beckham's splendid form and Alexandre Pato's relentless scoring.
Upon scoring again in the mid-week friendly against Glasgow Rangers, the teenager had now found the net nine times in eleven consecutive appearances. Kaka is also in great form after Scoring in three recent games now Bologna, Lazio, and Rangers. All games in which David Beckham did very well. Beckham has two goals and two assist so far since joining and will be looking to do further damage in Serie A before his loan period expires.
Milan are currently desperate to keep Beck's. And with the turnaround he's provided since joining i do not blame them. Ronaldinho, who really has not been a regular in Carlo Ancelotti's side, started in the Rangers clash but might have to settle for the Bench in this one with Ambrosini, Seedorf and Flamini are set to start in Midfield.
Carlo Ancelotti's man will be hoping to gain a positive result at home once again against Reginna, in order to put pressure on Inter ahead of their clash next week in the Derby della Madonnina.

Reggina, A fight againts relegation.
Even though they might be in their seventh consecutive year in Serie A, Reggina actually have a reason to be fearsome of getting relagated this season as they sit rock bottom in the table seven points away from safety. They will be looking to ex-Milan man Di Gennaro and Hit man Bernado Corradi (who has an impressive nine goals to his name) to provide the scares. Earlier this season they managed to force Milan into winning it late with a fine Alexandre Pato strike after Corradi had tied up the game at 1-1.
With their terrible away record, one win recorded, three draws and eight defeats. It's looking more and more certain that they will be entertained by the likes of Brescia by next season in Serie B. I wont expect them to cause Milantoo trouble tomorrow as its unlikely Reginna would ever come away with anything from the San Siro anyways. Nothing less less than a victory would be fatal to the Northern Italy boys, and Milan certainly does have a reputation to struggle against lesser sides.
Hopefully Pato and David Beckham will cause havoc again, and Reginna looking to play defensively will be forced to let its guard down progresively as the match wears on.
Prediction: Milan 3-Reginna 1.
