Hellas Verona is welcoming Milan to Marc Antonio Bentegodi in round 26 in the Italian Serie A.
Verona is the big team crusher, and they are undefeated in their last 4 games. Verona has already beaten Napoli and Juventus this season, and Milan is now on their path. In their last 4 games, Verona has scored 8 goals while conceding 4 goals, and they have been outstanding. With 38 points, 34 scored goals, and only 27 conceded goals, Verona is in 8th place in the Serie A standings. Verona was playing against Verona on the road in their last game, and they have had 50% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and 78% of the correct passes. With 2 scored goals in the first half, and 1 more in the second half, Verona has won this game 0-3, and it was well deserved. Barak has scored 6 goals for Verona so far this season, while Zaccagni added 5 goals and 5 assists. Colley, Kalinic, and Ruegg are injured, while Vieira is still questionable. Verona has been doing well for the last couple of seasons, but the things they are doing this season are fantastic, and I hope Verona can keep it up.
Milan is still finding their way back to the winning track, but the good news is they are undefeated in their last 3 games. With this slump, Milan has lost first place in Serie A, and they are now in 2nd place with 53 points, 6 points less than Inter at the top. In their last game against Udinese at home, Milan was dominant with 61% of ball possession, 7 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and a solid 87% of the correct passes. Milan was attacking, but they couldn’t score a goal, but they conceded in the 68th minute, and it was a blunder. Luckily for Milan, they were awarded a penalty kick in the last minute of the game, and the final score of this match was 1-1. Ibrahimovic has scored 14 goals for Milan so far, but he is injured, and he will miss this game. Kessie has added 9 goals. Tonali, Madzukic, Ibrahimovic, Calhanoglu, and Bennacer are injured, and they will most likely miss this game. Milan is playing in the Europa League against Manchester United next week, but the game is on Thursday which means Milan will have time to rest, and it’s not like they can afford to drop more points in Serie A.
Milan has lost only 1 game on the road this season, and the trends are slightly on their side in this matchup. Milan has had some success against Verona on the road, but with their recent struggles, I’m not sure they can get all three points here. Verona has been scoring and conceding goals lately, and for that reason, I will stick to goals in this one.
