AC Milan vs SPAL
Italian Serie A
Date: Saturday, 29 December 2018
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza (Milano).
Milan dropped down to 6th place after yet another disappointing showing in a goalless draw away at strugglers Frosinone on Boxing Day. It was the fourth consecutive league match which saw Gennaro Gattuso’s men fail to find the back of the net. Given Rossoneri also suffered an early Europa League exit only after the group stage of the competition, we can say Gattuso might be counting his last days as team’s head coach.
Can Milan finally rebound and return to the winning ways on Saturday when they play host to SPAL in the last Serie A action of the year? Luckily for Gattuso, the opposition will also enter the match low on confidence being winless in last ten matches across competitions. Much like Milan, Spallini struggled to create up front lately as they bagged no goals in last three league affairs. They haven’t been easy to break down either conceding just once in the process, last weekend away at Napoli.
AC Milan vs SPAL Head-to-head
Milan easily won each of two last term clashes with SPAL.
Rossoneri have an impressive 6-0 goal difference against Spalling coming into teams’ third head to head encounter.
AC Milan vs SPAL Prediction
In spite of a horrendous spell of form they had of late, Milan are still within the striking range of Champions League spots. They are just three points shy of fourth-placed Lazio and will be desperate to try and close this gap with a victory over struggling opposition before the short winter break.
Milan have a fine home record of five wins, two draws and two defeats in nine games. We have to see them favourites against a side which only scored six goals in nine away matches this term.
Milan to keep a clean sheet looks as by far the best of betting options at 2.10. The home win is also an option at 1.50 as well as Under 2.5 goals FT at 2.00.
