AS Roma's straight forward 3-0 win over Cagliari on Saturday means, AC Milan will find themselves outside the top-four when they play Torino on Sunday night.
This is a pivotal period for AC Milan. They have been inconsistent, though showed flashes of emergence as well through some good performances. But it's a period which could condemn them to another year without the Champions League if they don't check the negative results.
The mood, however, will not be good inside the Milan camp after their elimination from the Copa Italia.
Milan boss Gennaro Gattuso could be blamed for the 1-0 loss to Lazio as he deviated from his 4-3-3 formation in that crucial match, opting for a 3-4-3 system.
There's no time to moan about that result though as the Rossoneri must turn their attention towards the Serie A. For they could still make this a successful season by finishing in the top-4. This is not out of their reach as well, as only one point separating them from AS Roma in fourth, having played a game less than Claudio Ranieri's team.
While Torino are flying high in the league this season. They are on the cusp of the club history as they can clinch the Champions League football.
As things stand in Serie A, Torino are just five points behind fourth-placed Roma.
