AC Milan vs Chievo
2018/19 Italian Serie A.
Date: Sunday 7 October 2018
Kick-Off: 14:00 UK,
Venue: Stadio San Siro (Milan).
AC Milan have a great chance to pick up another valuable three points as they take on bottom ranked Chievo on Sunday. The Diavolo have been solid, but not spectacular in the league and will need to start picking up wins if they want to start working their way up the table.
Dropping points against Atalanta and Empoli has hurt them, as in both games they had the lead, but they come into this game having earned a deserved 4-1 win over Sassuolo and are unbeaten in their last seven ties across all competitions.
In addition, they picked up a 3-1 win over Olympiakos midweek and will be looking to heap more misery on a hapless Chievo, who really look set for relegation this time around. The Flying Donkeys have managed to coast along for well over a decade, but they have really done themselves in this time around.
Accounting irregularities to keep themselves afloat earned them a three point deduction and thus they find themselves rooted to the bottom of the table.
The visitors are seven points from safety and could be cut further adrift should they fail to get a result here. And given their bad track record against Milan – they have won just two of their last 32 meetings with the Rossoneri – things could certainly get worse for the Flying Donkeys, who are also dealing with an injury crisis as well.

AC Milan vs Chievo: Prediction
Nothing short of a comfortable win will suffice for the hosts, who will need to pick up all three points heading into the international break to break into the top half of the table. They just may be also able to keep a clean sheet as well, especially given that Chievo have failed to score in their last three games.
