MILAN (AP) — Both AC Milan and Juventus have recent bad memories of San Siro ahead of their eagerly-anticipated Serie A match at the iconic stadium on Sunday.
Juventus lost the Italian Super Cup to Inter Milan last week, when Alexis Sánchez scored the winner with the last kick of the match at the end of extra time.
MILAN (AP) — Little went AC Milan’s way in a dispiriting 2-1 home loss to Spezia as the Rossoneri wasted a chance to move back atop Serie A on Monday.
Emmanuel Gyasi was left unmarked to finish off a counterattack and score a stoppage-time winner for Spezia, which moved six points clear of the drop zone.
A look at what’s happening in European soccer on Monday:
AC Milan can move into top spot in Serie A with a win at home to relegation-threatened Spezia. Victory would send the Rossoneri a point above defending champion Inter, albeit having played a match more than their bitter rival.
