AC Milan started their campaign by losing two of their first three fixtures before going on a five matches unbeaten spell. Montella’s side is now at the third spot in the overall table after overtaking Napoli, who are currently on a two-game losing skid, in the last round. Milan won Chievo, 3–1, on Sunday in a match held away at the Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi. Slovakian midfielder Juraj Kucka opened the game’s scoring right at the stroke of halftime with an marvelous screamer pierced the top left corner of Chievo goalkeeper Stefano Sorrentino’s net. Young French forward M’Baye Niang then extended the lead one minute into the second half also with a mid-range left-footer with the assist coming from Giacomo Bonaventura. Chievo’s midfielder Valter Birsa was able to reduce the deficit to one-point, 2–1, in the 76th, but an own goal from teammate Dario Dainelli sealed the win for AC Milan.
On the other hand, reigning champions Juventus have been on four matches winning streak after experiencing their first loss of the season against Inter Milan last month. Allegri’s men are still at the top spot of the Italian Serie A standings, five points clear of second and third placers AS Roma and AC Milan. This fixture is followed by a narrow 2–1 victory over contending Udinese side at their home turf of Juventus Stadium last Saturday. Udinese midfielder Jakub Jankto netted the game’s first goal in the 30th minute, but the hosts scored the next two goals, courtesy of Argentine striker Paulo Dybala’s brace, to pull off a comeback win.
