Milan vs. SPAL Predictions and Preview
Both these sides are badly out of form and this game offers both the opportunity to record a long overdue victory.
Milan are not only without a win in four league games but they have not scored a goal in that run, collecting just three points and slipping from fourth to sixth.
SPAL have not won any of their 10 Serie A matches since their stunning 2-0 victory at Roma in October, yet they are still placed a respectable 15th in the league standings.
If you fancy the home side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 7/5.
One to watch for Milan: Gonzalo Higuain has already hit 116 goals in Serie A since joining the division in 2013 and five of those have come this season for Milan. The Argentine striker, as ever, will be the main source of goals for the hosts and is priced at 11/10 to score anytime here.
One to watch for SPAL: Andrea Petagna has already hit five league goals this season for the visitors – more than any other player. He is priced at 5/2 to find the net in this game.
Long shot: SPAL have never scored a goal against Milan while the Rossoneri have gone four matches in Serie A without finding the net, with three 0-0s in that run. Odds of this game to finish scoreless are available at 11/1.
