Milan face busy start to 2008

The Lega Calcio has rescheduled AC Milan's postponed matches against Atalanta, Reggina and Livorno.

The European champions will have to face eight games in four weeks consisting of Serie A, Champions League and Coppa Italia matches between 13 January and 13 February 2008.

The Rossoneri's Week 12 clash with Atalanta was abandoned following crowd trouble in Bergamo on November 11.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side are currently in Japan, representing Europe in the FIFA World Club Cup tournament. Therefore, their next two Serie A matches against Reggina and Livorno have been postponed.

The Club World Cup will be held between December 7-16 and Milan, who qualified by winning the UEFA Champions League trophy last season, will make their debut in the semi-final stage on December 13.

When the tournament in the Far East is concluded, they face a Coppa Italia last 16 tie against Catania and play their final Serie A game of the year against Inter in the derby on 23 December.
