SPAL vs Milan
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 26 May 2019
Kick-Off 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Paolo Mazza (Ferrara).
Gennaro Gattuso extended his reign at Milan with a streak of three subsequent wins.
However, his job is far from done as he is still looking ahead of an uphill battle coming into the final Matchday.
Rossoneri are one point below the likes of Atalanta and Inter Milan in the battle for the fourth-place finish and a spot in the Champions League football next season.
They thus need to beat SPAL on Sunday evening at Stadio Paolo Mazza and hope either La Dea or Inter will slip-up against their respective rivals on the final Matchday.
Keeping the entire focus on this match will be a big challenge for Milan, but the reality is they do head into it as massive favourites against non-motivated mid-table opposition.
SPAL may have been a tough nut to crack in their backyard throughout the season (they saw off Juventus 2-1 in mid-April at home).
But, the lack of motivation affected their game in last two rounds. Spallini shipped five goals in back-to-back defeats to Napoli and Udinese.
SPAL vs Milan: Head-to-head
The head to head record is something Milan will rely heavily on here as well.
Rossoneri won each of three H2H clashes with SPAL in a short history of this match-up.
Milan have a dominant goal difference of 8-1 from these three ties with Spallini.
SPAL vs Milan: Prediction
Milan have been inconsistent with their form throughout the entire campaign, but with some winds back in their sails following three subsequent wins, they should really be victors here.
The visitors will also build on a pair of fine defensive displays as they kept back-to-back clean sheets in successive wins over Fiorentina and Frosinone.
Motivation will play an enormous factor here and we just can’t predict any other outcome but Milan’s win at 1.50 odds.
Since Rossoneri bagged two or more goals in each of three head to head games with SPAL, we fancy them to do the same here at 1.53 odds.
