AC Milan vs Brescia
Italy – Serie A
Date: Saturday, 31 August 2019
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza (San Siro) (Milan).
Milan did finish in the fifth position in the table last season but was booted out of the Europa by UEFA due to irregularities in their financial records. The expulsion seems to have some kind of impact on the squad, as they have begun their Serie A campaign with a loss, and that too against Udinese.
The team will have to bounce back this weekend, and considering them having the home advantage, fans rightfully expect them to do so too.
Moreover, since they are taking on a newly promoted Brescia, it’d be an embarrassment if the squad fails to post a comprehensive win. True the visitors were the champions of Serie B in 2018-19 and had posted some astonishing stats en route to their title, but the sheer experience that the Milan outfit possesses would be enough to fetch them this much-needed win.
The underdog status has another side to the coin too. The hosts are under immense pressure to deliver, whereas, even a spirited performance associated with a defeat would hail the guests as moral victors.

AC Milan vs Brescia Prediction
Brescia is yet to get experienced with the challenges of this top division. True, they did win their opener, but it was more of a fluke, and against AC, they will likely falter.
Furthermore, the home advantage tips the scales even more to the direction of the Devil. Also, the side has absolutely decimated the current Serie B champions in h2h clashes. To quote a stat, Milan won the previous six meetings on the trot, and the last two were wins to nil as well.
In addition, at this venue, the home team boasts of a 100% unbeaten record against this rival and has scored three or more goals in four of the former five such battles.
As of all these directly indicates, our top pick for the day is a comfortable home win.
