Serie A: Genoa vs AC Milan preview


AC Milan will be looking to extend their three-game winning streak and put further pressure on leaders Juventus when they visit Genoa for a Serie A match on Tuesday evening. Last season Genoa beat Milan 1-0 at home, while the Rossoneri won the match at Giuseppe Meazza 2-1. AC Milan have not won at Genoa since 2014, while in the last ten matches between these two sides there has been only one draw, with AC Milan taking six wins compared to Genoa's three. However, Genoa have won three of the last four direct meetings.

Genoa have suffered a painful defeat last weekend as they lost the city derby 2-1 against rivals Sampdoria. That defeat came after a four-game unbeaten run for Genoa, but they had only won one of those four matches. They are currently 12th in the league table, any further negative result, especially at home, might see them slip dangerously towards the relegation zone. Head coach Ivan Juric has just one injury concern, with Serge Gakpe certain to miss out. Striker Leonardo Pavoletti is fit but might not be ready for the full 90 minutes yet.

AC Milan are performing above expectations so far this season, they are on a three-game winning streak that culminated last weekend with a prestigious 1-0 victory over reigning champions Juventus. They had lost two of the first three matches of the season, but then Vincenzo Montella and his players went on a six-match unbeaten streak, with five matches won and just one draw. Andrea Bertolacci, Matias Fernandez, Luca Antonelli, Riccardo Montolivo and Davide Calabria are still injured.

Probable line-ups:

Genoa: Perin - Izzo, Burdisso, Orban - Edenilson, Rincon, Veloso, Laxalt - Rigoni, Pavoletti, Pandev

Milan: Donnarumma - Abate, Romagnoli, Paletta, De Sciglio - Kucka, Locatelli, Bonaventura - Suso, Bacca, Niang

My prediction: 1-1 draw.

Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:

Genoa win - 2.75
Draw - 3.25
AC Milan win - 2.63

    Milan don't have the consistency or the class of Juventus to be a title contender I think.
    When they were 1-0 down second half they tried to be aggressive but the red card once and for all decided that game.
    I lost quite big amount when I placed a bet against Milan on their last away game v Chievo when they won after been completely outplayed first half, this time they lost a game that probably they shouldn't loosing but of course I didn't wagered this time : (
