 League leaders AC Milan travel to Genoa face a Sampdoria side which faltered badly last month following a particularly productive October. Stefano Pioli’s team have barely relented in Serie A – despite their coach being quarantined give them a five-point advantage over a tightly-bunched chasing pack, while Samp have now slumped into the bottom half of the table. After winning all three games played October, Sampdoria collected just two points  four league matches during the course of November. Claudio Ranieri’s men have settled into a mid-table slot following two draws and two defeats either side of the international break.

After dowsing almost everyone since the restart of Serie A, many felt that AC Milan’s unbeaten spree was finally going to come to an end when the club squared off against Atalanta. With injuries ravaging the team and Atalanta making for the most rampant attacking line in the competition, this was a tie where AC Milan were envisaged to be mauled.

Despite almost everything against them on the day, the club showed that its resurgence and revitalisation is  to stay. Showing immense fight, character and a knowhow of the game, the side came away with a plucky 1-1 draw on the day, a result hailed owing to the circumstances the side pulled off the performance in.
