Three goals and a third consecutive league victory. Thanks to their win in Bergamo, AC Milan moved up to second and equalled their best-ever start to a Serie A season ahead of the second international break of the campaign. Here are the numbers to come from tonight’s 3-2 success over Atalanta:
1- AC Milan have picked up 19 points so far, equalling their best start from the first seven games of a single Serie A campaign since the three-points-per-win era began (19 in 2003/04 too).
2- The Rossoneri have recorded two successive wins away to Atalanta in Serie A for the first time since 2013.
3- AC Milan have scored eight goals in the opening 45 minutes during the current Serie A campaign: only Lazio have done better than this.
4- With just 28 seconds on the clock, Davide Calabria scored AC Milan's third fastest goal in Serie A since 2004/05: only Leão against Sassuolo (6"), and Muntari against Juventus (18") were faster. It was Calabria's fourth away goal of his six in total scored in Serie A.
5- Sandro Tonali is the youngest midfielder to have scored at least two goals so far this season; the second youngest in this statistic is another Rossonero, Brahim Díaz.
6- In the first seven games of this league season, Tonali, with two goals, has already exceeded the total number of goals scored in his first 60 appearances in Serie A.
7- AC Milan scored with two Italian players in the same Serie A match for the first time since August 2018 against Napoli: on that occasion, it was Giacomo Bonaventura and Davide Calabria who found the net.
