AC Milan will be playing the first home game of the 2021-22 Season at San Siro.  The mood should be optimistic considering that a victory will give full 3 points to collect a total of 6 points after winning Week 1 Sampdoria 0 – 1 AC Milan and be among the top 5 positions.  For Cagliari, a victory means reaching 4 points helping them to be among the top 8 positions having collected 1 point last week, Cagliari 2 – 2 Spezia.   The last time AC Milan won two consecutive Serie A games was under Carlo Ancelotti in 2002/03 and 2003/04.

At this point, the pressure is more for AC Milan because they are pursuing the first objective to win the Scudetto as last season they ended up in the 2nd position after leading many weeks the first position.

The last team that AC Milan recorded more consecutive clean sheets against in the Serie A was Chievo Verona in 2016 (seven).
