It has been a long, gruelling Serie A campaign for Stefano Pioli’s men, who have juggled Champions League football and a run to the Coppa Italia semi-finals, but despite those distractions, the Rossoneri have remained fiercely competitive in their desperate search for that ever-elusive Scudetto — they are just one game away.

As it currently stands in Serie A, Milan are leading the charge heading into the final weekend, two points ahead of reigning champions Inter, who contrived to self-implode at the home straight with that 2-1 loss to Bologna at the end of last month, so Pioli knows a result here against Sassuolo confirms Milan the title.

The San Siro club are currently unbeaten in 15 Serie A games and have only lost four times this season, though one of those defeats came against Sassuolo, with Alessio Dionisi’s Watermelon Peel winning 3-1 back in November, handing Pioli a second successive loss of the campaign at that point.

Since then the Rossoneri have been formidable. Sassuolo could actually win three games in a row against Milan for the first time in the club’s history, though Pioli will take comfort in the club’s record at the Citta del Tricolore, with Milan winning each of their last five away league games against the Emilia-Romagna club.

Sassuolo vs AC Milan match stats

Rafael Leao has played like a man possessed in recent weeks, the perfect time to enjoy a purple patch. The Portugal international actually scored the fastest goal in Serie A history against Sassuolo at the Citta del Tricolore back in December 2020. He has been directly involved in six goals (three goals, three assists) in his last five Serie A games. Since mid-April, only Lautaro Martinez and Luis Muriel (both eight) have had a hand in more goals than the Leao in the competition.

Although Milan have kept 17 clean sheets in Serie A this season — the most of any club — Sassuolo are expected to pepper Mike Maignan’s goal. The Watermelon Peel have taken on 210 shots on target in Serie A this season, a stat bettered only by reigning champions Inter (242). In fact, they are the only clubs to reach the 200-mark for shots on target. The last time Milan kept 18 clean sheets was exactly a decade ago in 2011/12.

That 3-1 loss for Milan back in autumn unravelled very quick for Pioli. His side broke the deadlock on home soil in the 20th minute through Alessio Romagnoli, but Sassuolo swiftly responded less than five minutes later through Gianluca Scamacca. They would go on to take the lead through a Simon Kjaer own goal, before Domenico Berardi made it 3-1 — and Romagnoli got sent off to compile the misery.

Where are AC Milan tipped to finish this season?
