Challenges Franco Baresi & Paolo Maldini Challenge


Recommended Posts


Franco Baresi and Paolo Maldini, arguably the best defensive duo of all time.

Together they made over 1,600 appearances for the Rossoneri whilst winning numerous titles along the way.

Baresi is without doubt one of the greatest captains to have worn the armband for Milan. He started his career with the youth team and moved up to the first team at the age of 17. This is where his historic career would take flight, and Baresi would become part of the Milan rearguard for 20 seasons until his retirement in 1997.

Paolo Maldini debuted for the senior side in the 1985 season, which was the start of a storied 24 year career with the Rossoneri. He became a somewhat permanent fixture in the starting XI at the age of 17, playing at right back before being moved over to left back due to his ability on his left foot. Maldini was given the iconic number 3 shirt, which was the same number his father Cesare Maldini wore during his career with the club, and a number which has since been retired by the club unless Paolo’s son Daniele makes the grade.

With their home-grown and newly established back-line, Milan went on to become one of the most decorated clubs in the history of world football, and it started in the 1987 season under manager Arrigo Sacchi.

The first of many trophies that they won was the 1987/88 scudetto, the first in 9 years. During their title run, Milan only conceded 14 goals, possessing by far and away the best defense in Italy that season.

Following the 1988 season, Milan won the 88’ Suppercopa, and back-to -back European championships in 1988/89 and 89/90, which was coupled with successive intercontinental cups in the 1989 and 1990 seasons. During the 1991/92 season, the team was immortalised as ‘The Invincibles’, going undefeated in their Scudetto winning season as part of a run that eventually stretched to 58 games without defeat. Overall, the pair won 18 trophies in the 12 seasons that they played together.

Will we ever see another duo like the #6 and #3 of Milan?

Great looking challenge this 👍

Thanks mate, it’s just something slightly different from your usual goalscoring challenge, and can quite easily be incorporated into another challenge too. May create some more with other successful defensive duos too in different leagues.
