So the semi-final stage of the Coppa Italia is now upon us and the first match is going to be between Italian giant’s AC Milan and Alessandria who have been by far the surprise package of this competition. This is a great opportunity for both sides and perhaps we can see some surprises since Alessandria will be playing without fear in front of their home crowd.
As far as teams and quality goes, I think that there is no doubt in the world that AC Milan are the better side. That being said, stranger things have happened in sports and with a home crowd behind them the Alessandria players will believe that they are invincible. However, I still have my doubts since I think that Milan are just a level too good and the Red Milan team will be desperate to have cup success since there has been quite a long trophy drought at the San Siro.
This match will be the best chance Alessandria will ever have to beat or even get a draw against AC Milan. This match will not happen often due to the different levels of the teams and Alessandria will perhaps never have such a good cup run again. This is once in a lifestyle chance for the fans and I expect a big crowd so it will be fun to watch how the atmosphere effects the game.
Overall AC Milan will win. I am almost sure of this. That being said, betting on the outright result is not a good play since we are getting a pretty bad price three ways. In that sense I think that betting on the handicap is probably better. Milan -1 is paying well and I think that it will happen since I am expecting a 2-0 or 3-0 result so this is what I think is the best bet.
