AC Milan hit 26-year low at San Siro in five-goal shocker against Sassuolo in Serie A

AC Milan 2022-23Getty
  • Defending champions humbled
  • Five different scorers for visitors
  • Pioli's men remain in fourth place

WHAT HAPPENED? The Rossoneri fell two goals down inside 21 minutes during a forgettable showing at Giuseppe Meazza, with Olivier Giroud then pulling one back. Things got worse quickly, though, for Stefano Pioli’s side and they had been breached five times before Divock Origi grabbed another consolation effort late on. The final result saw Milan ship five goals at home in Serie A for the first time in 26 years, with Juventus having last managed the feat in a 6-1 victory at San Siro in 1997.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Sassuolo boasted five different goalscorers on the day, with Gregoire Defrel, Davide Frattesi, Domenico Berardi, Armand Lauriente and Matheus Henrique all finding the target.

WHAT NEXT? A humbling defeat in their own backyard has left defending title holders Milan fourth in the Serie A table, 12 points adrift of leaders Napoli.
