AC Milan vs SPAL Prediction
AC Milan pulled off a comfortable 2-0 win over Cagliari last week to extend their unbeaten streak to two games on the trot. The hosts have been at the losing end in just one of the previous seven fixtures in the Serie A and have picked up the win thrice in the process as well.
Meanwhile, SPAL ran riot over Lecce in the last round to book their clash with the home side. However, the visiting contingent have been faring very poorly ever since and have come out on top just once in their past five clashes.
Piling on even more misery, SPAL are the worst side back in the top flight. It is also worth mentioning that the guests have been struggling to get things going for them on the road this term, and have tasted success just once in their past ten outings. In sharp contrast, AC Milan are unbeaten in their past three games here.
Furthermore, the hosts have made no mistake in securing the bragging rights in each of their previous three meetings with this foe at home. Given the evident difference in form and the stature of the two teams involves, count on AC Milan to breeze past the guests in this one.
Additionally, the home team have not been keen on racking up the goals here as of late, and have thwarted their foes from doing the same as well. Four out of the last five games at this stadium have featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts.
With SPAL scoring just two measly goals from their past ten outings, it is certainly well within reason to expect AC Milan to wrap things up with no more than a goal or two at the most.
