AC Milan v Genoa, Sat 17:00
With the seemingly easier run in of the two, AC Milan will be hoping to bring back maximum points from the remainder of their league fixtures and can only pray that Juventus don’t fare so well as Bet365 offer short odds on the Rossoneri to send Genoa packing from the San Siro on Saturday, as users can also take advantage of their live stream service.
After going four matches without a victory, AC Milan will be looking to build on last weekend’s win over Chievo and hope that it heralds a successful run heading into the last stretch of the campaign.
Massimiliano Allegri’s men have earned the best attack in the Italian top flight, scoring an average of two goals per game when playing at home this season.
Juventus’ unbeaten campaign means that they are yet to come out of a league fixture without at least a balanced goal difference and AC can only settle for the second best defence in the league, keeping a clean sheet in 53% of their home fixtures.
Genoa are in a somewhat different fight and are currently battling for their very survival in Serie A, just two points off of the drop zone.
It’s been over two months since I Rossoblu last tasted victory; a record that doesn’t look likely to do anything but worsen when they travel to Milan this weekend.
The match, which will showcase the most threatening attack in the league (AC Milan) against its leakiest defence (Genoa) promises to be a goalfest and not in the favour of the visitors.
With Juve facing basement side Cesena this weekend, the league leaders don’t seem likely to drop any points on Sunday but should Allegri’s side prove the odds correct and come out on top, they can at least move to the summit of Serie A for 24 hours.
With the bottom half of Italy’s top tier as tight as ever, Genoa can move up to 14th and out of immediate relegation danger should they earn a shock victory this weekend providing that several other fixtures go in their favour.
