Milan strong enough to make up for defensive frailties

Prolific Sassuolo may have to settle for draw

Milan celebrate a Gonzalo Higuain goal
1 of 1

Eleven Sports 1, from 6pm Thursday

Spal v Sassuolo 6pm
Last season Sassuolo were the lowest scorers in Serie A with 29 goals in 38 games but no team managed more than their 12 goals in the first five matches of this term.

Their only defeat came at Juventus but they face a tricky trip to Spal, who have also started well with wins to nil against Bologna away and Parma and Atalanta at home.

Recommendation
Draw
1pt 9-4 Betfair, 188Bet

Key stat
Sassuolo have kept only one clean sheet in their last 12 away Serie A matches.

Empoli v Milan 8pm
Empoli needed less than a minute to take the lead at Sassuolo last weekend but they went on to lose 3-1 and they face another dangerous attacking unit in the form of Milan.

Star striker Gonzalo Higuain has struck in each of his last three games and the visitors can claim the points despite their defensive frailties.

Recommendation
Milan to win & both teams to score
1pt 12-5 bet365, Betfred

Key stat
Both teams have scored in Milan's last eight league games.
