Gianpaolo Calvarese has officiated ten Milan matches since 2008, when he became an official for both the top and second flight in Italy.
Milan visit Sassuolo on Sunday at 15:00 CET on a ground where il Rossoneri have never avoided defeat in official play, and refereeing decisions have gone against them.
Montella’s men may benefit from the fact that whenever the man from Teramo has been in the centre of the pitch, results have favoured Milan.
Il Diavolo have six wins, two draws, and two defeats under their belts while Calvarese has had the whistle. The results are as followed:
Serie A 2012/13: Milan 2-1 Siena.
Coppa Italia 2012/13: Milan 3-0 Reggina.
Serie A 2013/14: Hellas Verona 2-1 Milan.
Serie A 2014/15: Empoli 2-2 Milan.
Serie A 2014/15: Chievo 0-0 Milan.
Serie A 2015/16: Milan 1-0 Chievo.
Coppa Italia 2015/16: Milan 2-1 Carpi.
