Hellas Verona vs AC Milan
Italy – Serie A
Date: Sunday, 15 September 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi (Verona).
One goal was enough for Hellas Verona to claim a big win against Lecce on the road, and now they’re sitting at 7th position with four points after two rounds. Rahmani, Zaccagni and Lazovic missed some great chances in the first half at Stadio Via del Mare, and when the game looked destined to end 0-0, Matteo Pessina broke the deadlock to win the game for ‘Gli Scaligeri’. They’re going back home to host AC Milan on Sunday night.
We had a lot of interesting games so far in Serie A, but it’s safe to say Milan were not involved in one. Not even close. They looked shockingly bad against Udinese (0-1) in the opening round and the new coach Marco Giampaolo was clearly unhappy. He made some changes for the Round 2 affair with Brescia, stacked the players in the middle, played with a lone striker and it worked, as they won 1-0.

Hellas Verona vs AC Milan: Prediction
Hellas Verona had a decent home record last season in Serie B – 8 wins, 7 draws and 3 losses. This is their first major game since coming back and I’m sure they will be super motivated to take down a big name.
The guests will be looking for a second win in a row, but how can I possibly trust them after such a pathetic display against Udinese, a tad better team than Verona?
Both teams have played two ‘fat’ unders so far and this looks like another tightly contested game. I’ll go with under 2.5 goals and pick the hosts in AH market.
