Hellas Verona is hosting AC Milan at Marc Antonio Bentegodi in round 36 of the Italian Serie A. Verona is a great team, at least in the attacking end, and they are in good form as well. Milan is also on a roll, they haven’t lost in Serie A in a while, and they need a win here to stay in the title race.

Verona is undefeated in their last 3 games while losing only 1 of their last 5 games. In the standings, Verona is now in 9th place with 52 points, they have scored a fantastic 61 goals so far, but their defense is not great. Verona is simply not a good defensive team, and if they were even a little bit better, they would have been in the Europa League by now. Simeone is the leading goalscorer for Atletico with 16 goals, while Caprari has added 12 goals and 7 assists. Verona also has a few injuries. The last 3 games of the season are hard for Verona, and they might not win any more points, but they will certainly score some goals because that is what they are great at.

Milan is now on a 3-game winning streak in Serie A, but they need to keep that streak alive if they want to get back to the top of the table. In their last 2 games, Milan has beaten Lazio and Fiorentina, they have scored 3 goals in those 2 games, while they have conceded only 1 goal in their last 8 Serie A games. A solid defense is a reason why Milan was able to stay at the top, but their last few games of the season will be hard, and they will need the offense as well. Leao is now the leading goalscorer for Milan with 10 goals, while Giroud has added 9 goals. Hernandez has 7 assists. Milan is in great form right now, they are not very efficient, but they are winning games and that is what matters. Inter and Milan are now tied at the top of the table, but they need a win here if they want to win the title.

Milan has lost only 1 game on the road so far this season, and luckily for them, Verona is not a great defensive team. Verona could still get to the Conference League, but Milan has a lot more to lose here. I’m taking Milan in this one.
