, although facingUdinese
today at 11.30 GMT was the real test of maturity and consistency for Milan.
Milan is at the top of the Serie A table, without any defeat since the June quarantine and being successful in the Europa League.
"This is the test of maturity, of consistency that we've already shown over the last six months," Maldini said.
"This is a game against a team with a lot of strength, pace and quality, plus it's at an unusual kick-off time, so it's a real test for us.
"We always knew our players had quality and they'd need time, but having a team structure that works well helps the less experienced ones to come through."
Maldini talked about the Scudetto talk now circulating Milan after they played 23 games unbeaten.
"I always tell the lads not to put limits on themselves and to be ambitious. I also like to keep my feet on the ground, as our objective should be to improve and hopefully qualify for the Champions League.
"If we do find ourselves in a positive situation, then why not try?"
