          Sassuolo vs AC Milan: Preview & Prediction

          AC Milan make the trip to the Stadio Citta del Tricolore to take on Sassuolo on Sunday in the Serie A. Sassuolo need a win to fight off relegation whereas AC Milan look to reel in rivals Inter Milan at the top of the table.

          Date: 14/04/2024

          Kick off time: 14:00

          Location: Stadio Citta del Tricolore

          A good run of form for AC Milan, and a bad run of form for Inter Milan, could give AC Milan a shot for the Serie A title. Sassuolo, however, desperately need a win in the tight battle for Serie A safety.

          Sassuolo currently sit 19th in Serie A after 31 games. The Neroverdi have six wins, seven draws and 18 losses, leaving them on 25 points, two points from safety.

          The Neroverdi have been much better in front of goal than their league standing suggests. In 31 games, Sassuolo have scored 36 goals which gives them an average of 1.16 goals a game. At the other end of the pitch, however, Sassuolo have conceded 59 goals and have kept just two clean sheets.

          AC Milan, on the other hand, currently sit second in Serie A. In 31 games, Milan have 21 wins, five draws and five losses which leaves them on 68 points, 11 points behind Inter Milan.

          The Rossoneri have been amongst the goals this season, scoring 60 goals in 31 games, an average of 1.94 goals a game. However, AC Milan have also struggled defensively, conceding 34 goals and keeping 12 clean sheets.

          Sassuolo and AC Milan have met 26 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming back in 2013. AC Milan have the better record in the fixture with 13 wins in comparison to Sassuolo’s nine wins, the other four games ending in a draw.

          The last five games in this fixture have seen two wins for both Sassuolo and AC Milan along with one draw. This fixture also sees a lot of goals, other than the 1 - 0 AC mIlan most recently and a 0 - 0 draw back in 2022, three of the last five games have seen over three goals.

          Recent Form

          In their last five games in all competitions, Sassuolo have one win, two draws and two losses.

          The trip to Verona saw Karol Swiderski score the only goal of the game in the 79th minute to give Verona the 1 - 0 win over a Sassuolo side that had just two shots on target.

          Sassuolo bounced back in a big win over Frosinone in the relegation battle. Kristian Thorstvedt was the only name on the scoresheet in the 58th minute in a 1 - 0 win for Sassuolo, despite Frosinone having 61% of the possession but just one shot on target.

          After a goalless first half, Lorenzo Pellegrini scored in the first five minutes of the second half. This goal was the only one of the game in a 1 - 0 win for Roma, with Sassuolo only having two attempts on goal.

          The visit from Udinese saw Sassuolo on the scoresheet first. Gregoire Defrel gave Sassuolo the lead in the 41st minute but Florian Thauvin drew Udinese level just before the halftime whistle. Neither side could find the back of the net in the second half and had to settle for the 1 - 1 draw and the point.

          The last time out for Sassuolo was against Salernitana. Armand Lauriente and Nedim Bajrami both scored late in the first half to give Sassuolo the 2 - 0 lead going into the halftime. However, an early penalty from Antonio Candreva and a 91st minute goal from Guilio Maggiore rescued a 2 - 2 draw for Salernitana.

          In their last five games in all competitions, AC Milan have five wins.

          Christian Pulisic scored the only goal of the game against Empoli in the 40th minute. Despite having ten more shots, AC Milan held out Empoli to pick up a 1 - 0 win.

          The second leg of the Europa League Round of 16 saw Milan in the Czech Republic to take on Slavia Prague. Following the red card to Slavia Prague’s Tomas Holes in the 20th minute, Pulisic, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Rafael Leao all scored to give AC Milan the 3 - 0 lead at halftime. Matej Jurasek did score late on for Prague, but Milan held on for a 3 - 1 win.

          Back in the Serie A, Milan took on Verona. Theo Hernandez gave Milan the lead just before halftime and Pulisic doubled the lead early in the second half. Tijjani Noslin did get Verona on the scoresheet but Samuel Chukwueze secured the 3 - 1 win for Milan.

          All three of the goals in the game against Fiorentina came in a six minute period. Loftus-Cheek opened the scoring for Milan but Alfred Duncan equalised for Fiorentina just three minutes later. Three minutes after that Leao regained the lead for Milan in the 2 - 1 win for Milan.

          The most recent outing for Milan was against Lecce. Pulisic and Olivier Giroud both scored to give Milan the 2 - 0 lead at halftime. Nikola Krstovic was sent off on the stroke of halftime and Leao scored again to wrap up a 3 - 0 win for Milan.

          AC Milan suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat to AS Roma in the Europa League Quarter Finals on Thursday as Gianluca Mancini scored the only goal of the game.
