Sassuolo

 
AC Milan have only won six Serie A (SA) matches this season (D2, L7), all by a one-goal margin. Yet back-to-back victories and netting over 2.5 team goals for the first time this season last time out, will give home fans confidence that things are looking up. However the ‘Rossoneri’ have scored over 1.5 goals just once at home this term (W2, D2, L3). The hosts suffer from slow starts here, conceding the opener in four of the five matches in which their opponent found the net. Three of those four opening goals arrived in the first 30 minutes, including in their last two games. Sassuolo have scored before half-time in their last two SA away matches, drawing both games 2-2. Yet despite the fact that four of their six away league matches have produced over 2.5 total goals, only 35.85% (19 of 53) of the total goals seen in Sassuolo’s fixtures this season arrived on the road. The visitors have now netted a first-half goal in their last six SA matches, opening the scoring in three but winning just once when doing so (W1, D1, L1). It comes as no surprise then that Sassuolo have scored four of their last five league goals before half-time. Players to watch: Theo Hernández has been involved in the action during Milan’s last two games, netting two winning strikes and an own goal. Domenico Berardi (SAS) has scored eight SA goals this season – five arrived before the interval. Stat attack: There’s been a goal beyond the 75th minute in four of Milan’s last five SA matches.
