AC Milan can now almost touch that Scudetto trophy after a convincing 2-0 win against Atalanta over the weekend. The Rossoneri will travel to Reggio Emilia to face Sassuolo on Matchday 38 for the last lap of this grueling Serie A title race that has endured to the very end. 

The hosts, Sassuolo, have a place in mid-table on 50 points, sufficient to see them to another Serie A season. The match kicks off at 21:30 IST on May 22. Will there be more drama, or will Milan finally end their 11-year wait for the Serie A crown?

Teams Status

Sassuolo Form and Team News

Sassuolo sit in 11th place on the log, level on points with Torino in tenth, and have scored only one more goal than they have conceded (64, 63). They also have a peculiar record across wins, draws, and losses this season, with 13 wins, 11 draws, and 13 losses, the same as Torino’s.

Although their defensive lapses may come to the fore again as they face Milan on Matchday 38, they won the last two meetings with Milan (3-1 and 2-1, respectively). Also, their 3-1 victory over Bologna during the weekend will serve as a morale booster, as it put an end to a four-match winless run (three losses and one draw).

Gianluca Scamacca and Domenico Berardi have 31 goals between themselves. They will be instrumental if Sassuolo are to win this encounter. Jeremy Toljan and Abdou Harroui may not participate as they are on the sidelines after picking up injuries in April.

AC Milan Form and Team News

When Theo Hernandez went on that 80-yard run to rifle a low shot underneath the Atalanta goalkeeper, San Siro exploded, and AC Milan could feel the title finally coming their way. It was a goal of pure class, one which typifies this Milan side as they march their way to their first Scudetto title in eleven years.

Now, the Rossoneri only need a point to win the league via a superior head-to-head record over Inter this season or a win to secure it outrightly. They are in the right form to get either result, as they have not lost a Serie A match away from home since November. With Raphael Leao, who scored the opener against Atalanta, and the likes of Theo Hernandez in fine form, AC Milan can begin to dream of a fitting end to their 2021/2022 campaign.

Simon Kjaer and Daniel Maldini remain on the sidelines as no new injuries to Milan’s players have surfaced. They may not be available in time for the trip to Sassuolo.

Tipster’s Angle

Sassuolo have a decent home record across all competitions, with three losses, three draws, and four wins in their last ten matches at home. They have also won the previous two meetings with AC Milan, although they lost their previous meeting at home to Milan.

Milan have a fantastic away record this season, with their last loss coming in November. They have also won five matches on the bounce away at Sassuolo, dating back to 2017. Here are our thoughts on this encounter:

Tip: Draw in Either Half @ 1.75

Sassuolo have recorded a draw in either half 17 times this season, while Milan have recorded fewer with 14. We expect both teams to match one another in either half, with the outcome recorded thrice in their last five meetings. A draw in either half is available on the Melbet sportsbook at 1.75 odds.

Tip: AC Milan to Win or Draw @ 1.14

AC Milan are under pressure and highly motivated to win the Scudetto finally. They only need a point to seal the victory, but we expect them to go all out for the win, especially as Sassuolo have nothing to lose except a top-half finish. AC Milan to win or draw is available on the Paripesa sportsbook at 1.14 odds.


Milan winning the Scudetto will be a dream come through for Pioli and his team, and they know what they have to do to come out on top. Sassuolo will ask several questions, but we believe Milan have shown enough grit in recent weeks to find the desired result come May 22.
