• AC Milan have won the last 13 meetings against Chievo in Serie A, keeping a clean sheet in three of the last four.

    Overall, Chievo have beaten AC Milan only twice in Serie A, with both these wins coming at the Bentegodi (in October 2002 and December 2005).

    Only once in 22 previous meetings have AC Milan failed to score against Chievo (a goalless draw at the San Siro in March 2003).

    AC Milan have picked up only one point from their last three league games. Overall this is the Rossoneri's worst start to a Serie A campaign since 1981/82.

    AC Milan have conceded 19 goals so far - only in 1941/42 (20) and in 1932/33 (23) had they shipped more after the first 11 games of the season.

    Chievo are winless in their last seven games (D1 L6). This is their worst record since January 2011, when they went eight games without a win.

    Chievo have scored only seven goals so far - no side has scored fewer in Serie A.

    Mario Balotelli has had only one shot on target over his last three league appearances. He had 13 in the previous four.

    For the first time since joining AC Milan, Balotelli has failed to score for three Serie A appearances in a row.

    Since his return to Serie A, Balotelli has missed out seven games. Milan have won three, drawn two and lost two without him playing.

    Kaká scored the first of his two Serie A hat-tricks against Chievo at the San Siro in April 2006.

    Only in his first spell at Cagliari (10 points after the first 11 matchdays) has Massimiliano Allegri started a campaign worse than he has at AC Milan this season.
