Milan v Sassuolo Predictions and Preview
Milan have moved to within eight points of a Champions League qualification place and will hope to continue this pursuit on Sunday, but they are running out of games.
Their run of five successive league wins came to an end with last week’s defeat at Juventus, while they were held by Inter in Wednesday’s Milanese derby, in which they were second best.
Sassuolo’s form has stabilised in recent weeks and they are currently on a four-match unbeaten run in Serie A – they have climbed two places and five points above the relegation zone.
The hosts are favourites to win this game at odds of 1/2, with a unlikely away win available at 15/2 and the draw priced at 7/2.
Under 2.5 goals is available at 53/50 while fewer than 1.5 goals is priced at 3/1.
A ‘double chance’ on the visiting underdogs to battle their way to either a point or an unlikely win is available at 7/4.
If you fancy the hosts to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 13/10.
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. He is priced at 7/5 to score anytime here.
One to watch for Sassuolo: Matteo Politano is Sassuolo’s top league scorer this season with four goals, including in the recent 1-1 draw against Napoli. He is available at 92 to score at any point in this game.
Long shot: Milan have kept a clean sheet in five of their last seven league matches while Juve have conceded just four goals in their last four outings. A scoreless draw available at odds of 12/1.
