Sassuolo vs Milan
KICK OFF: Sunday 30th Sept 2018 | 20:30 CET
Serie A wk7 | Mapei stadium - Citta del Tricolore
Can free-scoring Sassoulo prevail on home soil when Milan visit the MAPEI Stadium?
The hosts are in fine form this season, and in pole position to collect all three points when they welcome Milan.
Despite a defeat in their last outing against Juventus, Sassuolo are still in great shape and can cause problems to any side in the league. Sassuolo were defeated on their previous two occasions to Milan on home soil, but on current form, they can certainly reverse their fortunes. They boast a formidable attacking unit comprising of former Milan star Kevin-Prince Boateng, Berardi and Babacar, who have all scored this season.
Milan will have to be at their best to get a result this time. A recent 1 – 1 draw against Cagliari wasn’t convincing, and they will need to do more if they are to be victorious away to Sassuolo. They are capable in attack, putting two goals past Napoli and Roma in their first two league games. Higuain and co. will be out for more given their impressive goal-scoring stats this season.
Milan has a busy schedule before and after this encounter, and they are likely to rest players in between. Sassuolo has the energy and quality to power through this game with their attacking trio.
