AC Milan only require a point to seal their first Serie A title in eleven years as they travel to face Sassuolo on the final day of the 2021/22 league campaign.

An impressive run of four wins in a row - conceding only once in the process - has left Stefano Pioli's side on the brink of wrestling the Scudetto away from their bitter rivals Inter.

Sassuolo, meanwhile, halted a four-game win-less run with a 3-1 win at Bologna last time out, powered by a brace from the prolific Gianluca Scamacca.

Here's everything you need to know about this weekend's crunch fixture.

Sassuolo team news

Alessio Dionisi could welcome Abdou Harroui back from a muscle injury for the visit of the league leaders, although Jeremy Toljan and Pedro Obiang are unlikely to play any part.

The Neroverdi will once again turn to the talented Gianluca Scamacca for goals after his brace at Bologna last time out, with the impressive duo of Giacomo Raspadori and Domenico Berardi roaming with menace behind him.

AC Milan team news

The Rossoneri boast one of the meanest defences in Europe currently, which is even more impressive considering Simon Kjaer has been missing since December with a season-ending injury.

Fikayo Tomori and Pierre Kalulu have formed a formidable partnership in central defence, while Rafael Leao is in terrific form going forward.

Sassuolo vs AC Milan score prediction

Eight clean sheets in their last ten league outings underlines Milan's defensive prowess this season, providing a solid foundation for the likes of Rafael Leao and Olivier Giroud in attack.

Trips to the Mapei Stadium hardly evoke fond memories for Milan as Massimiliano Allegri, the last Rossoneri boss to win the Scudetto was sacked after a 4-3 defeat to Sassuolo in January 2014.

Milan are on the cusp of history and, given their recent defensive performances, you'd certainly back them to get it over the line.

Prediction: Sassuolo 0-1 AC Milan
