Midweek action takes places in the Serie A this week and the San Siro will see AC Milan take on Chievo. Looking at the league standings, this is a real mid table match and both teams will be desperate to get the three points.
The home team, AC Milan, are just coming off a win on the weekend and will have some confident after a shockingly poor start to the season. This AC Milan outfit had spent a huge sum of money over the summer and honestly, they have not got value for it. The defense is a mess with a mixture of youngsters who are yet to develop and experienced players who are well past their peak. There is not enough stability in the back and it is shown by the fact that they have not kept a single clean sheet all season. In addition to this, the midfield lacks creativity and players such as Nigel De Jong and Andrea Poli often make mistakes which leave the defense vulnerable. Having said that, it’s not all bad for AC Milan as they have one of the best attacking sides in Italy. The combination of players such as Carlos Bacca, Luiz Adriano and Mario Ballotelli makes sure that the former European champions score plenty of goals.
Cheivo on the other hand are just a very average team and on paper they should be no match for AC Milan. Having said that ,Milan have been way too unpredictable this season so the visitors will come into this game with quite a bit of hope that they may pull off an upset. Cheivo have managed to score goals in all but one game this year and with a vulnerable opposition defense, the strikers will really try to take advantage of this. Don’t be surprised if you see Cheivo scoring quite a few goals this game.
Overall this game is going to be dictated by how AC Milan play. If they play well then AC Milan should win quite easily but with their recent form, I just don’t have enough confidence to pick them as an outright winner. This is a team that gives away goals and will and scores them just as easily. Cheivo on the other hand has been scoring consistanly so I expect both teams to score. Both teams to score is at 1.90 and I think that is the best bet for this match
