Several unbeaten runs and a first since 2009: All the key stats ahead of Crotone vs. Milan

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan will be looking to continue their 100% start to the season on Sunday evening when they face Crotone away from home.

The Rossoneri have won all three competitive games this season and won their Serie A opener on Monday night, beating Bologna 2-0 thanks to a double from Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Head coach Stefano Pioli will not be able to call upon the Swede for the trip to Calabria though as he is out with Coronavirus, as is Leo Duarte, while Alessio Romagnoli, Andrea Conti and Mateo Musacchio will all miss out.

Below are some of the key stats, with thanks to Forza Italian Football and WhoScored
