Preview: Mourinho’s road to home; Mazzari’s journey to uncharted waters
He won aplenty at Chelsea but his failure to win the big trophy saw him head out. At Inter Milan, Mourinho achieved the dream treble including the holy grail, the UEFA Champions League. When he left Massimo Moratti and the club, Inter fell apart. Jose Mourinho eventually found his way back to Chelsea after a mixed spell at Real Madrid. In each passing press conference, he seems more and more at home.
He selected a 25-man squad for this competition including new signings Andre Schürrle and Marco Van Ginkel as well as loan returnee Kevin De Bruyne. Initially the squad consisted of 26 members. However, Tomas Kalas had to pull out due to an injury.
Preview: AC Milan looks to rescue tarnished reputation against Sao Paulo
Milan fell behind to five quick goals against Manchester City in the Audi Cup semifinals in the blink of an eye. They managed to save face thanks to a double from Stephan El Shaarawy and a goal from Andrea Petagna. They have the chance to pick up a win against a Sao Paulo side which set up to do nothing but defend against European champions Bayern München in the first round.
Sao Paulo had very few chances at the Allianz Arena. They were dealt a blow however as early as the 13th minute as an injury to Paulo Miranda saw him subbed off for Edson Silva. Also, Rogerio Ceni’s late penalty was saved by Manuel Neuer. Sao Paulo has players who can trouble Milan including former Shaktar star Jadson.
Preview: Mario Balotelli will miss out as AC Milan take on his former club

His former club will arrive at the Allianz Arena fresh off a title in Asia, where Manuel Pellegrini's side had to endure some poor field conditions, defeating South China and English Premier League side Sunderland.
