This Sunday sees Milan go head to head with Cagliari at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza – Kick-off 8:45pm GMT.

It’s a clash of eighth vs eleventh, as Milan host Cagliari at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.

AC Milan have so far accrued three points in this season of the Serie A

Milan will hope to increase their wins in a row, having secured a 0-1 victory over Sampdoria in their last fixture.

They currently sit in eighth place, with a total of three points having won one game.

A victory for AC Milan would put them on 6 points.

It is likely that two key players will miss Sunday’s fixture, which is something of a concern for Stefano Pioli and his Milan team.

This season’s Serie A campaign, has so far seen Cagliari achieve one point

Having dropped a total of four points in their past two games, Leonardo Semplici won’t be devastated by those results, but will be eager to secure a consistent run of form.

With one point, they are established in eleventh in the League drawn one game.

A win in this fixture would take Cagliari’s points to 4 in the League.

Good Attacking Performance

Cagliari have a good scoring record this season, with two netted so far (1 from open play and one penalty). This is largely down to the efforts of their stand-out attackers – Joao Pedro (2), Simone Aresti, and Diego Godin. Cagliari have shown a very poor defensive solidity, having conceded two goals in their previous games.

Cagliari are missing two players through injury or illness. This will affect Leonardo Semplici’s selection choices significantly.

AC Milan v Cagliari – Head-to-Heads.

This is an encounter that has often resulted in a local win. Milan have the lion’s share of victories with 29 victories and 12 draws. The last time they played each other in this competition was May 2021 and the score line ended up with a 0-0 draw. In the last fixture between both sides, none of them scored, but the good part is that there are real scoring chances today (58.48% ), as both teams are presumed to go all out in this Serie A fixture.

The probability of a Milan win is 68.49 percent.
