AC Milan vs Cagliari
Italy – Serie A
Date: Saturday, 1 August 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.
I Rossoneri have ensured a top-six finish, and fans are slowly wondering if this a hike back to their glory days. While they still have a considerable distance to go, the team is on the right path – and it’s particularly due to the arrival of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has instilled a killer instinct into the players.
After a long unbeaten run, the squad will definitely want to end their season on a positive note, and considering that they are taking on a lighter opponent, Stefano Pioli’s men will try to do just that.
However, understand that the Islanders are fresh off an inspiring win against nine-time running champions Juventus, and they will certainly have their spirits up. Walter Zenga’s men could do the double, and try to defeat I Rossoneri too.
Be that as it may, previous h2h clashes, and the impressive form of Pioli’s men suggest that AC Milan will emerge victorious this weekend.
