There have been just two draws in the last five home matches for AC Milan, as the form of Stefano Pioli’s men has nosedived since the comprehensive win over Crotone. Sampdoria picked up a narrow win over strugglers Torino just before the international break. Surprisingly, the matchups between these two teams at the San Siro is not devoid of stalemates, which could be the possible outcome in this match.
Total goals under 2.5
AC Milan have been on a poor home run with no goals scored in three out of the last five matches at the San Siro. Admittedly, Milan came up against opponents like Inter Milan, Manchester United, and Napoli during this run. Sampdoria are not a profound scoring outfit in away matches. This makes this match a likely candidate for a low scoring encounter.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic to score anytime
AC Milan’s top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic has a strong record against Sampdoria with eight goals and four assists in 11 appearances against this team in all competitions. The veteran came up with a brace, which included the opening goal of the match, in the 4-1 success over this opponent back in July 2020. Ibrahimovic did not score during the international return, but he did contribute through two assists.
AC Milan vs Sampdoria: Team News and Match Preview
AC Milan might end up losing the second spot to challengers like Juventus and Atalanta after dropping four points in the last four matches. The club might have given up on the title after watching Inter Milan create a six-point lead with a game advantage. The home results for Milan have been particularly disappointing with only the home win over Crotone a noteworthy mention since the turn of the year. Brahim Díaz, Alessio Romagnoli, and Mario Mandzukic are missing from action for Milan.
A narrow home victory over Torino helped Sampdoria move into the top 10 of the Italian Serie A. Claudio Ranieri’s men have not been spectacular this season, but a solid display against Torino will give the squad a lot of confidence. This was also the first win for the team since beating Fiorentina in the middle of February. Sampdoria still need to pick up a handful of points before they can afford to relax. Albin Ekdal, Ernesto Torregrossa, and Lorenzo Tonelli are unavailable for Ranieri.
