Playing away from home, Milan have won two matches and drawn one game.

AC Milan will have 19 points if they manage to secure a victory.

Good atacking and defensive team

Milan have shown a decent defensive solidity, having only conceded three goals in their previous fixtures. They have a good scoring rate of 12 goals (11 from open play and one penalty). This has been largely down to the key attacking players: Brahim Diaz (3), Olivier Giroud (2), and Rafael Leao (2).

Milan’s ever growing list of players missing due to injury or illness to be a concern for Stefano Pioli, ahead of this Sunday’s fixture against their opponents.
