Stefano Pioli has one word to prepare Milan for the potential Scudetto-winning game with Sassuolo. ‘Enthusiasm. We worked so hard to get here, we can’t let that chance slip through our fingers.’

Both Sassuolo-Milan and InterSampdoria kick off at 17.00 UK time (16.00 GMT).

The Rossoneri need only a point to guarantee the Scudetto, as they have a superior head-to-head record with their city rivals and a two-point advantage going into the final round.

“We know that it’s a big opportunity and we’ll do everything we can to take it,” Pioli told DAZN.

The coach was asked what advice he had given the Milan squad in the locker room before this decisive match.

“What I told the lads was that we worked so hard to get here and now we can’t let this chance slip through our fingers.

“The word I have today is enthusiasm, to play like Milan. The reason we got here today is because we have clear ideas, an identity and way of playing, so it must be the same as always today.”

Not only would it be the first Milan Serie A title in over a decade, but it’d also be the first ever piece of silverware for Pioli as a coach.
