A first in Europe and more scorers than games: Three amazing stats from the win over Sparta Praha

By Oliver Fisher -

After Monday’s frustrating 3-3 draw with Roma, AC Milan got back in the groove as they cruised to a 3-0 win over Sparta Praha at San Siro last night.

The result could have been even better given the various chances created and also a missed penalty by Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the first half, but Milan have moved top of Group H and are ultimately five points ahead of third place.

La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanLive) points out that Milan have scored at least two goals in 12 consecutive matches in all competitions for the first time ever since there was a single group Serie A (from 1929-30).

There is another new record for Milan too in that they have had 11 different scorers in their first 10 games played this season across all competitions, namely Ibrahimovic, Calhanoglu, Colombo, Kessie, Diaz, Saelemaekers, Leao, Theo Hernandez, Krunic, Hauge and Dalot.

In addition to that, Milan are the first team to have three different scorers born after 1/1/1999 in a single match in the Europa League or Champions League. Brahim Diaz, Rafael Leao and Diogo Dalot all netted in the win vs. Sparta Praha.
