The Diavolo enjoyed a winning return to San Siro on Sunday, beating Fonseca’s Roma 2-0 thanks to goals from Rebić and Çalhanoğlu. Unsurprisingly, both the Croatian and the Turk are among the individuals listed in our top nine stats from the match. Check them out:
1- AC Milan have secured two successive home wins against Roma in Serie A for the first time since 2004, then led by Carlo Ancelotti.
