Date: Sunday, 8 May 2022
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi.
With just three games remaining AC Milan are hanging onto the first spot with their dear life. However, archrivals and defending champions Inter Milan are close behind, trailing by just two points.
As things stand, it is expected that the title race for the Italian league will go down to the wire this year. And both these rivals have no option but to keep winning fixtures, no matter whom they are pitted against.
This Sunday is going to be tough for the seven-time European champions as they are pitted against Verona who are desperately going after a top finish, in order to secure a ticket to one of the European competitions next season.
Likely, a win is a must for both these squads, and as such we can expect a fierce encounter between the two. It also needs to be noted that Inter have a particularly easy fixture this time around and this will put additional pressure on the toppers
Judging the sheer will with which AC Milan have kept a hold of the top most spot so far this season, count on them to sweat it out for the three points this weekend.
