Milan are three wins away from a first league title in 11 years!

AC Milan will look to take another step closer to the Serie A title when they travel to Stadio Marcantonio Bentegodi to face Hellas Verona on matchday 36 in the league.

The Rossoneri currently hold a two-point advantage over holders Inter Milan at the top of the table and cannot afford to drop points.

Every game hereafter is a must-win for Stefano Pioli's side, who are just three games away from a first Scudetto since the 2010-11 season.

After Verona, they face Atlanta in Milan before closing out the campaign away to Sassuolo, both of which are potential banana skins.

Verona are down in ninth position with 52 points from 35 games and cannot be taken lightly either as they haven't lost in their last three top-flight matches.
