Hellas Verona will face AC Milan in week 36 of the Serie A 2021-2022 which can be watched via live streaming on BT Sport on Sunday, 08 May 2022, BST.
A tough task faced by AC Milan to realize the dream of winning the Italian League Serie A for the first time in 11 years. The tight competition with Inter Milan has left the Rossoneri with no choice but to win the last three games of the season, including the visit to Verona at the Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi, Sunday 8 May 2022 starting kick-off at 7.45pm local time.
Milan’s youth team has shown their form since the start of this year by packing 10 wins in 16 league games, five draws and just one defeat at home to Spezia in mid-January. An impressive display from Rafael Leao has seen Milan win their last three league games, including when the Rossoneri snatched a dramatic victory over Lazio through Sandro Tonali’s late goal which saw an assist from Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
At that time, an assist from Rafael Leao was perfectly utilized by Olivier Giroud to compensate for Ciro Immobile’s early goal until Milan finally closed the match with a 2-1 win. Last week, the 22-year-old winger also managed to silence Fiorentina’s resistance with a single goal which was scored about eight minutes before the end of the match.

Victory over Fiorentina keeps Stefano Pioli’s camp on the right track in the title race. But Inter Milan’s win over Empoli this week meant that Milan, for the time being, had to hand over the top of the table to the Nerazzurri.
To return to the top, Milan need a win against Verona – a club who are struggling in the middle of the standings by occupying ninth place with a collection of 52 points. Although the position is quite far adrift, it is not impossible for the Gialloblu to make a surprise in front of their supporters this weekend.
Under the leadership of Igor Tidor, Verona have been in brilliant form at home since the end of January 2022 – recording four wins in their last six and only one defeat at home to Napoli in mid-March. The sharpness of the attacking trio of Giovanni Simeone, Gianluca Caprari, and Antonin Barak who have scored a total of 39 goals this season is also a test for Milan.
According to the head-to-head record, Milan still dominates with four wins in the last seven meetings with Verona in Serie A. To maintain the chance to compete in Europe next season, Verona must be able to imitate their slick performance as when entertaining Milan in December 2017 which ended with a 3-0 win for the hosts.
