After what is said to be the team’s worst start for the Serie A campaign, AC Milan will be playing host at the San Siro stadium. The match is scheduled for Sunday 3rd, November with kick off at 22.45 GMT.
Coach Stefan Pioli was appointed as the new head coach a month ago, but the Serie A giants are still facing a lot of problems. Pioli has been under heavy fire with the team’s lackluster performances which has seen it win 2 games in their last 6 encounters.
Currently, Milan are in the 10th place in the Serie A standings with 13 points from their last 10 games. Many fans have been calling for the sacking of Stefan Pioli after a month of being in charge. It all seems the story of a sinking ship with the former Serie A winners.
Coach Lazio Simone Inzaghi has been on a mission to revamp the glory days of the White and Sky Blues. They are currently placed 5th in the Serie A table with 18 points in their last 10 games. The team has only lost once and drawn once in their last 6 past encounters.
