Sassuolo vs AC Milan
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 20 December 2020
Kick-Off at 14.00 UK
Venue: MAPEI Stadium, Reggio nell’Emilia.
Sassuolo sit just outside the Serie A top 4 but have little to be happy about lately, with just one win earned in four games. They struggled to score goals and now come into the match with a 1-1 draw at struggling Fiorentina behind them, where Hamed Traore’s early goal was cancelled out by Dusan Vlahovic’s penalty-kick equalizer.
AC Milan retained the top spot too but saw the gap behind them cut to just a point by Inter Milan, as Parma (2-2) and Genoa (2-2) snatched a point each. They scored important goals and showed character but Stefano Pioli needs to address the obvious shortcomings at the back as well as stability in the midfield.
Rossoneri conceded at least a goal in four of their last five outings across competitions and even turned to defenders and full-backs to deliver goals. They should have Ibrahimovic as well as Simon Kjaer back in ranks, though, and this could be a great plus at MAPEI Stadium. Still, we expect a great run for the money and the visitors will have to show a lot more if they’re to keep the top spot.
