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.
