Milan will be aiming to qualify for the Champions League next season as a bare minimum, knowing that a string of victories could actually help them to win the Scudetto this term. They have a gap of nine points to bridge between themselves and league leaders Inter, with Stefano Pioli’s team strong favourites to get the better of Sassuolo.

Despite two defeats at the San Siro, this is still something of a fortress for the Rossoneri who have conceded just four times in six clashes. Olivier Giroud continues to be a target man for Milan and the likes of Christian Pulisic and Rafael Leao can also chip in with goals, with the team having claimed an unlikely 2-1 Champions League win at Newcastle.

That result means that the Rossoneri can prepare for life in the Europa League in the New Year, with Sassuolo likely to give things a go in this Serie A fixture and many of their away clashes have been high-scoring ones. For example, there was a 4-3 success at Empoli at the end of November, although the ensuring three matches saw them fail to win.

At the time of writing, the past six matches have seen both teams find the net in Empoli matches and this is suggesting the same outcome at the San Siro. You could potentially combine this with a Milan win and BTTS Yes, with a 3-1 victory in Milan likely to be along the right lines for what should be an entertaining clash.
