A.C. Milan was a reliable force just under the top teams in Serie A, finishing in fifth position. It had the ability to win matches without impressing, having a goal difference of just +6, despite finishing in 5th place. The position was just enough to clinch a UEFA Cup spot, despite losing the Coppa Italia final to Sampdoria.
