1998–99 A.C. Milan season

Milan
Manager Alberto Zaccheroni
Serie A 1st
Coppa Italia Round of 16
Top goalscorer Oliver Bierhoff (20)

A.C. Milan returned to its previous glorious ways under the guidance of new coach Alberto Zaccheroni. The highly rated coach, hired from Udinese, brought lethal striker Oliver Bierhoff and the defensive right-winger Thomas Helveg with him. He introduced Milan to his unorthodox 3-4-3 formation, in which Bierhoff was a perfect center forward, scoring 20 goals in the league.

Milan had a marvelous second half of the season, in which it kept pace with Serie A championship leaders Lazio, then passing the Romans when they had a couple of slips. In the end, a win in the final round was more than enough to clinch Milan's first league title for three years.
