AC Milan vs Sassuolo
Italian Serie A
Date: Saturday, 2 March 2019
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Stadio San Siro (Milano).
Milan enjoyed a stellar form in recent weeks. They sit 4th in the league ladder thanks to a thread of three subsequent wins in the competition. Rossoneri will have a nice chance to make it four on the spin on Saturday evening when they play host to out-of-form Sassuolo at Stadio San Siro.
Gennaro Gattuso’s men go into this undefeated in last eight league affairs. It’s an impressive thread if we know they played teams such as Napoli, Roma and Atalanta in recent weeks. Rossoneri bagged three goals in each of last three wins over Cagliari, Atalanta and Empoli conceding just one goal at the same tie during the process.
Krzysztof Piatek was the main catalyst for such sudden rise in form. He notched seven goals in last six appearances for Milan. The Polish forward was on the scoreline in each of last four league ties.
AC Milan vs Sassuolo: Head-to-head
Milan did not have troubles with Sassuolo in short history of their head to head games.
Rossoneri won four and drew one of past five ties with Sassuolo.
Milan claimed a demolishing 1-4 victory when these two likes met each other in the first half of the season at MAPEI Stadium – Citta del Tricolore.
Milan won four, drew one and lost one of six home clashes with Il Neroverdi bagging 12 goals in the process.
AC Milan vs Sassuolo: Prediction
Sassuolo dropped into the bottom half of the standings after a poor spell of form which saw them clinch just one point in last three league fixtures. They shipped three goals in two of these three ties, including a tough 3-0 defeat to relegation threatened Empoli in the previous away match in the league.
Last weekend saw Il Neroverdi play only a 1-1 draw at home to SPAL. Milan are huge favourites and we would be surprised to see anything other but the comprehensive home victory with ref-hot Piatek on the scoresheet as the outcome here.
