Inspiring Milan performance saw them crush Serie A new boys Lecce 4-0 and send out a warning to the rest of Serie A that they mean business this season.
This year, Serie A is going to be spectacular battle between two giants, Inter and Milan.
Here are the reasons why Milan will beat Inter in this season:
-Last season, Inter crushed Milan easily in both matches. Total score in both matches was 6-0 for Inter. It was a big surprise, but on the other hand it wasn't. Why? Because Milan had terrible transfer campaign in summer 2009 after departure of their best player,Kaka. Milan president Berlusconi and vice-president Galiani thought that this team is good enough to win Serie A. They were very wrong.
This year the things are different. Milan got very good new players that are hungry for success. Just imagine when attacking trio Ronaldinho-Pato-Ibrahimovic start crushing everybody. Milan want's revenge.
-It will be very interesting to see Benitez on Inter bench during this season. This is definitely his biggest challenge. His biggest honors are winning La Liga two times with Valencia while he had to battle against giants Barcelona and Real Madrid. After that as a coach of Liverpool he made a miracle in Istanbul and won UEFA Champions League in 2005. It was expected for him to win Premier League for Liverpool finally. But, Benitez failed in that. We all remember his fights against American owners of Liverpool because of low money for transfers.
Now in Inter, he has a finance power but he didn't bought anything special this summer. McDonald Mariga, Luca Castelazzi and Jonathan Biabiany are new players in Inter. It is weird that Benitez didn't spend big.
Benitez isn't good as Mourinho and this could be the problem for Inter.
-Zlatan came back to Serie A. This time he will score goals for Milan. Inter fans didn't love to see their ex great striker come back to Serie A in their biggest rivals. It will be great to see him score a goal against Inter.
One thing is for sure, Zlatan is ready to win everything with Milan.
-Here is the list of new Milan players since this summer:
GK: Marco Amelia - great addition for backup goalie. In pre-season matches proved to be very good.
DF:Mario Yepes - experienced Colombian defender is ready to help Milan defense.
DF: Sokratis Papastathopoulos - just what Milan needed is this young and aggressive defender.
MF: Kevin Prince Boateng - also what Milan needed was young center midfield like Boateng
LACK OF INVESTMENTS IN INTER MILAN
-Inter is the same team as last year. Their first lineup is the same. All clubs know that style and Benitez isn't the right guy that can change something in their game. We all saw Inter against Atletico Madrid. They were without ideas and that can be their problem in Serie A.
While Milan got plenty options, specially options from very good additions of newcomers.
-Finally this year we can say that Milan and Juventus are finally back after that scandal in 2006. Serie A is ready to have more clubs battling for "SCUDETTO" this year.
Of course, we can't forget Roma. the team that was very close to win Serie A but they blew it unfortunately.
Milan have a big chance this season and in my opinion I would rather give up on Champions League in order to finally win Serie A after waiting for 6 years.......
