HEAD-TO-HEAD

CURRENT FORM
2- AC Milan could win nine of the first ten Serie A matches of the season for just the second time in club history, and the first since 1954/55 when Béla Guttmann was at the helm (9W, 1D).

3- The Rossoneri come into this after five consecutive wins in Serie A: under Stefano Pioli’s management, the only instance of six wins in a row came between July and October 2020. AC Milan have also won their last four home games in the league; the last Rossoneri coach with five wins in a row at San Siro in Serie A was Clarence Seedorf in 2014.
