The final day of the season is fast approaching: one final challenge awaits the Rossoneri. After a long, hard season, which only got tougher after lockdown, the Rossoneri have secured sixth place in Serie A and will enter the preliminary rounds of the Europa League. Kick-off for the Rossoneri's last match of the season is scheduled for 20:45 CEST. To get you in the mood for the match, here are ten key facts and figures from previous clashes between the Isolani and the Rossoneri.
1- AC Milan and Cagliari have faced one another 75 times: the Rossoneri are streets ahead with 41 wins to Cagliari's eight, with the remaining 26 meetings between the two sides finishing level.
2- AC Milan have remained unbeaten in their last five Serie A clashes with Cagliari, with four wins and a draw.
3- AC Milan have won their last two games against Cagliari without conceding a single goal: they haven't done better (either in terms of wins against the Isolani, or in terms of keeping clean sheets) since 2012.
