Struggling Cremonese, welcome fancied their opponents this Tuesday

USC will no doubt see this game as an opportunity to bring some consistency of form into their season, following a draw away to Salernitana, as well at Udinese.

Also, with two draws in two fixtures, Manager Massimiliano Alvini has plenty to ponder, going into the next match, not least of which is how to get the wins he needs. Now they have 0 matches won, 7 games lost and 6 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in nineteenth place, with a total of six points having drawn six matches and lost seven games.

Playing at home, USC have drawn two meetings and lost four fixtures.

A win in this fixture, would take Cremonese’s points from 6 to 9, so far this season.

Massimiliano Alvini will be forced to make changes to the plans for his squad, as injury or illness has depleted him of three of his USC players.

This season’s Serie A campaign, has so far seen AC Milan achieve 29 points

Can Milan make it three out of three, having turned over Spezia Calcio 2-1 and Torino 2-1 in their last two games?

Also, Milan keep finding ways to win, having secured seven victories in their last nine games is astonishing this season, which is responsible for their Champion’s League qualification position. With 29 points (9W, 2L and 2D), they are established in second position in the League having won nine meetings, drawn two matches, and lost two fixtures.

Milan’s away record is remarkable and poses a significant threat to USC. In the 6 games they’ve played on the road this season, they have so far won three matches, drawn two meetings, and lost one game.

Victory for AC Milan would take their points tally to 32 so far this season.

Good Attacking Performance

They have a good scoring record of 27 goals (25 from open play and two penalties). This has been largely down to the key attacking players: Olivier Giroud (5), Rafael Leao (5), and Brahim Diaz (4). Milan have conceded 14 goals.

Injury and illness have depleted Stefano Pioli’s Milan and they will likely be missing seven key personnel for Tuesday’s match.
