Well, it took long enough, but the fixtures are finally here.
Serie A released the schedule today in a week-by-week streaming event, which sounds exciting at first, but let’s be honest, it probably got a little tedious after awhile. So after seeing that Milan will host Genoa on the 19th of August, a lot of people probably tuned out and waited for the whole schedule to be posted by club. So here it is.
Our fixture list for #SerieATIM 2018/19 has been revealed. Here is the schedule in full! ⚫— AC Milan (@acmilan) July 26, 2018

Of course, everyone looks to see when the Derby del Madonnina will take place, and the home match will be the second of the two derby matches this season. The first one will be in October, and Milan will be the “away” team for the match on Sunday, October 21st. The Milan “home” match will take place on Sunday, March 17th, 2019.
Other fixtures of note include the ones against Juventus, the Rome clubs, and Napoli. Milan will host Juventus on November 11th, with the reverse fixture taking place on Sunday, April 7th. Milan will host AS Roma in the third match of the season, on September 2nd, and travel to Lazio on the 25th of November, with the reverse fixtures taking place on February 3rd for Roma and April 14th for Lazio. Milan go to Napoli the second weekend in the season, on August 26th and will host them the 27th of January.
Milan’s final match of the season will be at SPAL on the 26th of May, with plenty of drama to come between the opening weekend and the final weekend of the 2018-19 season.
Will Milan get back to the Champions League this year? Will the Rossonero do the double over Inter Milan? And can anyone stop Juventus? It’s gonna be another fun season in Serie A, and hopefully a good start can set Milan up for success this season.
