CELTIC V AC MILAN: THE STATS FROM THE GAME

9 facts from the away win in Glasgow

It was an important victory on that famous old Glasgow ground. AC Milan didn't slip up at Celtic Park as they kicked off their Europa League campaign with a win over the hosts, thanks to goals from Krunić, Díaz and Hauge. Three different goalscorers, all whom feature in our nine post-match facts. Here they are:

1- AC Milan have scored two or more goals in ten consecutive games in all competitions for the first time since December 1964, 56 years ago. 

2- The Rossoneri have won a game with a maximum of six shots on goal for the first time since January 2019, against Napoli (2-0 in the Coppa Italia). 

3- AC Milan are unbeaten more than 20 consecutive matches for the first time since 1996 (27 on that occasion).

4- AC Milan have opened a Europa League campaign (excluding qualifiers) with a win for the first time since November 2018 (v Dudelange). 

5- Brahim Díaz has scored in two games in 2020/21, he has never scored in more games in a single season in all competitions while playing for a team in one of Europe's Top-5 leagues: he also scored in two games in 2018/19 (three goals)

6- It took Rade Krunić 861 minutes to score his first AC Milan goal, but only 14 of these minutes have come in the Europa League.
