Serie A Matchday 2 wraps up on Sunday with an intriguing battle as AC Milan welcome Cagliari to the San Siro. Cagliari earned a 2-2 draw with Spezia in their first game of the season, while Milan secured a 1-0 win away to Sampdoria. Here’s are storylines, how you can watch the match on Paramount+ and more:

Storylines

Milan: High expectations for Milan this season as they look to win the title for the first time in a decade. One of the biggest issues for the team was losing Gianluigi Donnarumma to PSG, but his replacement has been more than efficient early in Frenchman Mike Maignan. They’ll just hope they can find a bit more creativity in attack. Brahim Diaz looks like the part after joining from Real Madrid after spending last season at Milan on loan, but we truly won’t know this team’s potential until Zlatan Ibrahimovic returns. For now, they’ll need to get Olivier Giroud in a groove with his new teammates, and if that happens in this one, Milan should win comfortably. 

Cagliari: Joao Pedro’s story is a wild one with the Brazilian never scoring double digit goals in his first six seasons as a pro, but since he’s joined Cagliari, he’s been sensational. He’s got 75 goals in 233 games and has double-digit goals in his last two seasons. He is well on his way to doing it again with his brace on Matchday 1. With pace and precision, he only needs a small amount of space, and if Milan don’t close down quick enough, he can make the difference.
