Milan will play host to Sassuolo on Tuesday after noon as Serie A returns from it's winter break. There have been a few moves in that time for Milan with Fernando Torres going out on loan to Athletico Madrid. It hasnt really worked out for Torres in Milan and its probably best for both sides for him to go back to Atheltico Madrid. Milan are led by Menez and Honda who have been having terrific seasons thus far, sitting only five points from third and Lazio, Milan will want to get a win here to keep the pressure on and the pursuit of Champions League football is the ultimate goal for Pippo Inzaghi this season.
Sassuolo have been a tricky team to play this year. I watched the recent game at Roma where Sassuolo ended up taking a 2-0 lead before succumbing to two late goals to just take a point from the Olympic Stadium, but that is more than most teams take from Roma. Zaza and Berardi are a handful for any defence and I am sure the pair will fancy their chances of really giving Milan a game today. Coming into this game off a rest often suits the smaller squads more than the larger ones as it gives their core players more time to rest.
Tough game to handicap given the winter break but I am taking the overs here. I think Sassuolo will give a good account of themselves here and will get on the scoresheet but Milan might just have a little too much quality up top and run out 2-1 or 3-2 winners. Either way I am looking forward to getting to see this one on BT Sport.
