Milan vs. Chievo Predictions and Preview
After losing their opening duel against Napoli, Gennaro Gattuso has overseen a five game unbeaten run. The Milan legend remains under pressure with Antonio Conte rumoured to be lurking in the wings and needs a good showing from his men ahead of the titanic Derby della Madonnina later this month.
Gattuso was without star striker Gonzalo Higuain for the trip to Sassuolo but would have been buoyed by how his side fared in the Argentine’s absence. There will always be a dependency on the former Juventus hitman for goals and the 4-1 result served as a reminder of the talent in the Milanese ranks.

|Kessie to score anytime||7/4||Offer|
|Chievo to win both halves||50/1||Offer|
Suso and Samu Castillejo got in on the act in what was the Rossoneri’s best showing of the term to date. Nevertheless, Higuain is expected to return to the starting line-up and is the 10/3 favourite to strike first. Suso is 6/4 to net anytime while Milan are 2/7 to claim all three points.
Travelling party Chievo are desperately short of confidence. Aside from a spirited performance on the opening day against Juventus and the late draw with Roma, the Gialloblu have laboured.
Lorenzo D’Anna’s team are in another battle to avoid the drop after flirting with relegation in the second-half of the previous campaign. It took maximum points from the final three contests to guarantee survival and Chievo already find themselves seven points adrift and playing catch-up with the likes of Empoli and Cagliari. Despite this, the visitors can be found at 10/1 to pick up a shock win.
One to watch for Milan: Patrick Cutrone. The young Italian bagged the winner in the dramatic 2-1 success against Roma and will see game time in the closing stages. Cutrone is 15/4 to strike last.
One to watch for Chievo: Mariusz Stepinski has two goals to his name and will be the Gialloblu’s chief attacking threat. The forward is 4/1 in the anytime market.
Long shot: Chievo have already shipped a whopping 16 goals from just seven games and it’s likely to be a long 90 minutes for Stefano Sorrentino and his backline. Milan have scored in each of their seven fixtures and are good value to hit the net. A Rossoneri 4-0 win is 12/1.
