AC Milan simply froze under the San Siro spotlight on Sunday night, drawing 0-0 against Cagliari when a win would have secured a top four finish.
It was a lethargic and lacklustre performance against a team who sat deep and tried to frustrate despite learning that they had retained their top flight status for another year just a couple of hours before kick-off, and now only a win against Atalanta will make sure of a Champions League return.
Below are the main post-match stats, courtesy of the club’s official website plus some from Opta…
➤ Milan have been held goalless in a Serie A home game against Cagliari for the first time since June 1997.

➤ Milan haven’t gone on to win any of their last six games that were 0-0 at halftime (D3, L3).
➤ Milan have kept four consecutive clean sheets in a Serie A season for the first time since March 2018.
