AC Milan Vs Carpi: Head-To-Head-Stats
Both teams recently met in January, 2016 in the Coppa Italia with AC Milan defeating the Biancorossi by 2 goals to 1.
The first leg of this same encounter took place in December 2015 at the Alberto Braglia, with both side failing to score a goal. Therefore, these two sides will be facing each other for the 3rd time this season, and for the 3rd time in a long time.
AC Milan Vs Carpi: Prediction
AC Milan new boss Cristian Brocchi got his first victory as a red and black boss with a 1-0 victory against a Genoa side in an Away Game. The Italian born tactician has a huge pressure of getting a victory in his first home game in charge of the sleeping Italian giants.
However, I will suggest a victory for AC Milan or possible draw in case they failed to turn up.
