AC Milan win
The absence of Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a major blow since the Swede is crucial in linking up the play even when he is not scoring goals. Still, Milan have been able to get some form in the last few weeks and they came up with some brilliant goals against Parma. The runner up position is back in the sight for Milan, who are up against a Genoa outfit which has lost three out of the last four league encounters on the road.
Both teams to score – yes
Genoa displayed a lot of fight in the recent trip against Juventus. Davide Ballardini’s men were able to score against the defending champions and they could have easily two or three on another day. The high pressing approach from Genoa will trouble Milan, who are without a clean sheet in six. At the same time, Milan are expected to have sufficient firepower even without the suspended Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Total goals over 2.5
This is a game with goal threat at both ends. Genoa’s high pressing approach is likely to result in a mistake or two from the Milan backline, which has had a poor run in terms of clean sheets. Meanwhile, Genoa will feel confident from the manner the team almost rattled Juventus in the last away match.
AC Milan vs Genoa: Preview and Team News
AC Milan come into this game without superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the line-up. The veteran may be coming towards the end of his career, but he has been influential for the team nonetheless. After losing some key matches in the league, Milan are more concerned about a top four finish rather than fighting for the title. Now, Inter Milan’s healthy lead means that Milan will be more focused on a second-place finish. Davide Calabria is injured for the hosts.
Genoa are in serious danger of being sucked into the relegation battle with the team only 10 points above Cagliari, who would have played a day ahead this weekend. Ballardini will be keen on picking up a point or two to secure his team’s position going into the business end. Davide Zappacosta and Luca Pellegrini are out injured for the visitors, while Domenico Criscito is suspended for the game.
