Sassuolo will look to end their season on a high when they host title-chasing AC Milan on Sunday.

The hosts beat Bologna 3-1 last time out to keep their chances of a third consecutive top-half Serie A (SA) finish alive. 

However, to achieve that target, they must win this game against their former boss and hope that Verona loses (vs Lazio) as they have inferior H2H records against them.

They can fancy their chances of getting a result here as they have lost just one of their last seven home games, winning four times. But having claimed just one point in home league games against the other top-four sides (D1, L2) this term, hopes aren’t high of a win in Reggio Emilia. 

Possible Sassuolo starting line-up

Andrea Consigli; Mert Muldur, Vlad Chiriches, Gian Marco Ferrari, Giorgos Kyriakopoulos; Maxime Lopez, Davide Frattesi; Domenico Berardi, Hamed Traore, Giacomo Raspadori; Gianluca Scamacca.

Injured: Jeremy Toljan, Abdou Haraoui

Doubtful: None 

Suspended: None 

AC Milan 

AC Milan will look to wrap up what has been a largely successful season with a win when they travel to Reggio Emilia on Sunday.

The visitors are within touching distance of their first title since 2010/11 and need just a point to pip city rivals Inter. They kept their chances of winning their 19th title last time out as they beat Atalanta 2-0. They were even ready to celebrate after beating the Bergamo based side, but they had to wait as Inter kept the race alive for another week by beating Caglairi 3-1.

However, the visitors can finally celebrate this weekend should they get just one point from this game. And to their advantage, they have history on their side, as not since 2001/02 has the side topping the table entering the final Serie A matchday failed to claim league glory.

Also, they are unbeaten in their last eleven away league games, with eight wins and three draws in that period. And having won the last five away H2Hs, after opening the scoring before half-time in all of them, there may be no better opponent for Milan to face away on this final title-deciding matchday than Sassuolo.

Possible AC Milan starting line-up

Mike Maignan; Davide Calabria, Pierre Kalulu, Fikayo Tomori, Theo Hernandez, Franck Kessie, Sandro Tonali; Alexis Saelemaekers, Rade Krunic, Rafael Leao; Olivier Giroud.

Injured: Simon Kjaer

Doubtful: None 

Suspended: None
