AC Milan face Chievo at San Siro Stadium on Sunday, Oct. 7. Here’s all the info you need to watch.
AC Milan got off to a slow start this season but are coming off their most impressive game of the season. Milan defeated third-place Sassuolo 4-1 and will look to build on the win on Sunday against Chievo Verona. After using a strong finish last season to avoid relegation, the Flying Donkeys look like they will be going down this season. Chievo have picked up only two points in their first seven games, sitting dead last in Serie A.
Despite not having any strikers healthy enough to start last weekend, Milan were able to put four goals past Sassuolo. Suso scored twice, giving him a share of the team lead in goals. Gonzalo Higuain is expected to be available to play on Sunday and will give Milan a boost offensively. Milan’s biggest problem this season has been their defense. In six games, Milan have allowed nine goals and have not kept a clean sheet.
Chievo lost their third straight game, falling 1-0 to Torino in their last game. The club has been held without a goal in their last three games. In addition to failing to score goals, Chievo struggle to defend. In seven games, Chievo have scored five goals and allowed 16 goals. Mariusz Stepinski is the team leader with two goals this season.
