The Rossoneri were strong favorites to win the Scudetto in the first half of the season but now lag behind rivals Inter Milan.

AC Milan are “going to go all out” in the Serie A title race, asserts Theo Hernandes as he hopes for Inter Milan to drop points.

Inter went four points clear at the top of the table after beating Milan 3-0 in the Derby della Madonnina back in February.

A six-point gap exists between the two teams two months later, and Antonio Conte’s men could further increase their lead to a huge nine points if they win their game in hand.

Stefano Pioli’s hopes of ending Milan’s decade-long wait for the league title is fading, but they are “going to fight until the end.”

“Yes, we are going to go all out, there is still a lot left,” Hernandez told in an interview with AS.

“Inter has escaped us a little bit, but we are going to fight until the end. They can still lose or draw games, the leagues go around a lot…

“Then, obviously, I have the goal of playing the Champions League with this shirt. It would also be very nice because Milan has not disputed it for a long time.”
