MATCH PREVIEW

After seeing off Roma before the international break in Serie A (SA), AC Milan (14th, three points) jet off to Sardinia to play Cagliari (12th, four) against whom they have lost just once since 1998.
The hosts had an indifferent start to their season (W1, D1, L1), but stand on the cusp of attaining their highest tally after the first four games of a season (seven) since 2011/12. They are in good shape to do that, with three wins in five SA games (W3, D1, L1).
Even at home, the Sardinians have lost just once in their last five (W2, D2, L1), while keeping two clean sheets and conceding more than one goal just once. However, they haven’t kept a clean sheet against Milan since 2008.
That should boost the visitors who have a Europa League trip to Luxembourg slated for next week. The 2-1 win against Roma was Milan’s third in five league games (W3, D1, L1), but they haven’t kept a clean sheet in eight games now since April – their longest such run since 2015.
Milan’s away record, though, isn’t inspiring as they have picked up just one win in five trips (W1, D2, L2), conceding exactly three goals in two of them and failing to keep a clean sheet.
Players to watch: Leonardo Pavoletti (CAG) has four goals in his last four games, while Gonzalo Higuain (MIL) has six goals and an assist in seven games against Cagliari and have never lost to them (W5, D2).
Stat attack: Milan have scored at least twice in 11 of their last 17 SA games against Cagliari.
Cagliari have won just once in 29 league matches against Milan (W1, D6, L22).
Both sides scored goals in eight of Milan’s last ten league games and in eight of their last ten matches against Cagliari.
