AC Milan have a golden chance to win their first Scudetto since 2011 on the final Serie A day this Sunday, when Stefano Pioli’s men face Sassuolo at the Mapei Stadium. The Rossoneri will become champions if Inter fail to beat Sampdoria, but surely this is something that Milan can’t count on what promises to be one of the most dramatic final rounds in Serie A’s whole history.

Where and when: Mapei Stadium – 22 May, kick-off 17:00

Last time: Alessio Romagnoli gave Milan the lead, but a Simon Kjaer own goal, as well as two strikes from Gianluca Scamacca and Domenico Berardi earned Sassuolo a shocking 3-1 victory at San Siro in the last meeting between those teams back in November.

Sassuolo vs. Milan Predictions and Preview

It’s all or nothing for both Milan and Inter in the final day of Serie A, as only two points separate these two giants. The Rossoneri have the upper hand both in the standings and in the direct encounters between the two teams, which means that a draw against Sassuolo on Sunday would see Stefano Pioli’s men lifting the Scudetto.

Stefano Pioli’s men will also become champions in case Inter fail to win at home at Sampdoria, but this seems highly unlikely considering that the Blucerchiati are already mathematically save.

Milan earned a huge 2-0 victory against Atalanta last time, which means the Rossoneri are now just 1 step away from turning a very good season into an extraordinary one. Pioli’s side need to avoid defeat on the final day against the Neroverdi, but this might be harder than it sounds, especially considering that Sassuolo won each of their last two meetings.

Alessio Dionisi’s men put an end to a four-games winless streak last time, when they earned a 3-1 victory away to Bologna. Sassuolo can climb up to ninth place in the final standings with a win on Sunday, so the Neroverdi will be ready to put up a fight and are definitely capable causing a shock here.

Sassuolo vs. Milan full time result odds

Despite Milan struggles against Sassuolo in recent years, it’s really hard to imagine that Stefano Pioli’s men concede a defeat and allow the Scudetto to slip off their hands on the final day. A third straight victory for the Neroverdi in this rivalry is available at 13/2, while a draw that would also see the Rossoneri lift the title can be backed up at 4/1.

However, Milan are simply the better side and with so much at stake, it’s really hard to look beyond a victory for the visitors, available at 6/13 in these Sassuolo vs. Milan tips.

Sassuolo vs. Milan both teams to score odds

Each of the last four clashes between those teams saw BTTS pay off, while the same applies for Sassuolo’s last four games in Serie A. At the same time both teams scored in Milan’s last two games on the road, so our suggestion for this huge game is BTTS, available at 13/20, while the odds raise to 13/8 if you pair this with a win for Milan.

Sassuolo vs. Milan correct score odds

Three of the last four meetings between those teams saw the away side winning by 2-1 and considering how important the game is for Milan, a repeat of that scoreline might be on the cards. Stefano Pioli’s side recently beat Lazio with the same scoreline on the road, so going with a 2-1 victory for the visitors at 44/5 makes sense.

Sassuolo vs. Milan first goalscorer odds

Rafael Leao broke the deadlock in three of Milan’s last five games and the Portuguese will once again be the man to watch in the Rossoneri attack. Leao has netted 11 Serie A strikes this term and his performance improved as the season progressed. Considering that we are in the final round, it’s only normal to back the 22-year-old to score first against Sassuolo with odds of 5/1.
