1- AC Milan have won 13 away games this season in Serie A, a record for the Rossoneri in a single top-flight campaign.
2- AC Milan have won 16 games away from home in all competitions this season. They’ve never done better than this in a single campaign after also previously achieving this feat in 1992/93 and 2014/15.
3- AC Milan have won 13 of their first 15 games away from home in the 2020/21 Serie A season (86.7%): in the history of the Top 5 European Leagues, only Athletic Bilbao (88.9% in 1932/33) and Bayern Munich (88.2% in 2012/13) have had a better winning ratio on the road in a single campaign.
