Milan v Hellas Verona Predictions and Preview
Milan’s win at Bologna last time out was their first win in seven league attempts – as any hopes of a Champions League place have slipped from their grasp.
They sit one point off sixth-placed Atalanta – whom they play the following week – as they attempt to qualify for the Europa League for next season.
Hellas Verona look doomed for a straight relegation back to Serie B – they sit seven points from safety with three games to go and a defeat in Milan would confirm their demotion.
Fabio Pecchia’s side are in an awful run of form with seven defeats in their last eight games and it would be a great surprise if they were to stop the rot in this game.
The hosts are favourites to win this game at odds of 1/5, with a unlikely away win available at 20/1 and the draw priced at 7/1.
Under 2.5 goals is available at 2/1 while fewer than 1.5 goals is priced at 23/4.
A ‘double chance’ on the visiting underdogs to battle their way to either a point or an unlikely win is available at 5/1.
If you fancy the hosts to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 11/17.
One to watch for Milan: 20-year-old striker Patrick Cutrone is the dangerman for the Milanese giants and is their highest league scorer with seven goals to date.
One to watch for Hellas Verona: Teenage forward Moise Kean netted against the Milanese giants earlier in the campaign and is Verona’s top league scorer (4) this season.
Long shot: Milan have failed to score in three of their last six games and have not conceded more than once in a game in that run, while Verona have just three goals in their last eight. A scoreless draw available at odds of 25/1.
