"I think they found the right strategy and it was really important to win in Champions League and then against Bologna," said Baresi.
"Those scores boosted the team's morale and now they just need to get the results regularly. It was a pity to suffer defeat against Udinese but they need to go through that and challenge both Juve and Inter.
"Milan will for sure be up there at the end of the season. But it's early yet."
Baresi also spoke about the Rossoneri back line and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.
"Thiago Silva is doing well and with Alessandro Nesta they are forming a good partnership. They will be really good together.
"Playing up front is not easy, Huntelaar needs time. But he has to do much more and when the team gets better he will take advantage of it too."
