AC Milan, who are eight points behind the leaders in Serie A, will look to bounce back to winning on Saturday when they visit Frosinone at Stadio Benito Stirpe.
Milan’s 2-2 draw with Bologna last time out puts them behind Italy’s top two, while their hosts are more concerned with stopping a gradual fall down the standings.
City rivals Inter Milan extended their lead at the top of Serie A after recent recruit Filippo Terracciano conceded a stoppage-time penalty, which Riccardo Orsolini converted – once again, the Rossoneri let their struggling opponents free.
Milan’s failure to maintain a lead has left them trailing Inter and Juventus, who are undoubtedly vying for the Scudetto.
Before that trip to Milan, Frosinone had won three of four games in all competitions, continuing to exceed expectations since their return to Serie A.
Several weeks later, however, a run of five consecutive defeats was finally broken by victories and draws over struggling Cagliari and Hellas Verona.
With only a five-point lead above the drop zone, last season’s Serie B champions are still distant from extending their stay in the top flight, especially with February fixtures against Milan, Fiorentina, Roma, and Juventus.
