An extraordinarily important win for AC Milan, who beat Sassuolo 2-1 at the Mapei Stadium. There were good performances all over the pitch in a game that broke various records. Let's take a look:
1- Rafael Leão scored the fastest ever goal in Serie A (after 6 seconds), overtaking the previous record set by Paolo Poggi in December 2001 with Piacenza (8 seconds).
2- Rafael Leão is the youngest player with 3+ goals scored Europe’s Top-5 leagues in each of the last three seasons, and the only one born after 1/1/1999.
3- Theo Hernández has provided three assists in 12 games in Serie A this season, equalling his tally from the entire 2019/20 campaign after 33 appearances.
4- Only Barcelona in 1948 (18) have scored two or more goals in more consecutive matches in one of Europe’s Top-5 years in a single calendar year than AC Milan in 2020 (15).
5- Since Serie A became a round-robin tournament (1929/30), no team that has been unbeaten after 13 games ever finished the season outside the top four.
6- AC Milan have won five away games in a row in Serie A against a single side for the first time since 2013 v Chievo (six consecutive away wins).
7- AC Milan have fielded both of the youngest starting XI’s in Serie A since Opta records began (2004/05) and both were in the current season: against Spezia in October (22 years and 287 days) and today v Sassuolo (22 years and 313 days).
