AC Milan vs Genoa
Italy – Serie A
Date: Friday, 15 April 2022
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.

AC Milan finally have a chance to secure the Italian title after more than a decade. They have been desperate for this chance for quite a long time, and they will not let it out of their hands without a fight.

At the moment, they are placed first in the table, with a two-point lead over the second-placed Inter, who also happen to be the defending champions.

However, the title-holders have a game in hand, and this could create problems for the toppers. As such, they are desperate for a win, and just as the doctor ordered, they have an easy match-up coming up.

The toppers are at home, and are pitted against the 19th placed Genoa, who have been one of the absolute worst teams in the Serie A.

Genoa have won just twice all through the campaign, and only one of these wins have come on the road. Moreover, they also have a poor h2h record against this rival over the years.

By the looks of things, expect potential champions AC Milan to deliver a much-needed win this Friday.
