Things have not been going all that great for AC Milan, and it does not seems as if they are going to get better anytime soon. From 11 Serie A matches, the Rossoneri have taken only 12 points from a potential 33, leaving them 11th in the league table.

Injuries have not made things much easier for the Italian manager, but their biggest problem has been keeping the ball out of their own goal. They have conceded 19 goals in 11 matches, with 13 of those goals coming away from the San Siro.

Despite of a terrific run which has seen Roma defy all odds, manager Rudi Garcia has decided to keep his feet on the ground and has claimed that only a trophy at the end of the season will call for celebrations.
