AC Milan vs Sassuolo: Prediction
AC Milan climbed up to 10th place on the Serie A ladder following back-to-back wins over Parma (1-0) and Bologna (3-2). The Rossoneri will be looking to land their third victory on the trot when they take on another team from Emilia-Romagna region – Sassuolo.
Stefano Pioli’s side took 28 shots and generated impressive 19 goal-scoring chances over last two games. Maybe it’s too early to call it a full-blown resurrection, but they’re certainly on the right path.
ACM have underwhelming record at San Siro – two wins, two draws and three losses with 7:10 goal difference, scoring 1 goal per game and allowing 1.43. They drew 1-1 with Napoli in their latest home fixture.
Everyone bar Duarte are fit to play.
After a 2-2 stalemate with Juve at Allianz Stadium, the Neroverdi played out yet another entertaining four-goal stalemate, this time against Cagliari. Roberto De Zerbi’s men had a 2-0 lead at half-time, but high-flying Sardinianas fought back to earn a road point to stretch their remarkable unbeaten streak.
With the W-D-L record of 4-3-7, Sassuolo are 14th in the league, four points above the dropping zone.
Sassuolo have recorded one win, two draws and three defeats on their travels this season, averaging 1.33 goals scored per match, whilst conceding 1.83. 67% of their road games had over 2.5 goals and BTTS – Yes.
Defrel, Chiriches and Marlon are on the sidelines for the guests, Consigli is doubtful.
I’m counting on feel-good factor in Milan’s camp and Neroverdi’s inability to defend.
The Rossoneri are on the rise I will pick them to score over 1.5 goals here – the Sunday’s visitors have conceded at least two goals in five of their last six league games.
The hosts are hardly an overish side at San Siro – only 47% of their home games had three or more goals scored, but I’m positive that Sassuolo will find the back of the net with in-form Boga, Djuricic, Caputo and Berardi.
