The Dutch manager has allegedly been given just two games to save his job at the San Siro, and Al Hain-Cole can only see him edging closer to the sack after a tough game in RomeAC Milan will be hoping to end a run of four consecutive defeats when they travel to the Stadio Olimpico to take on Lazio on Sunday.
League defeats against Juventus, Udinese and Parma and a 5-1 Champions League aggregate exit at the hands of Atletico Madrid leave Clarence Seedorf’s men as 2/1 (3.00) outsiders with Paddy Power to come out on top in the capital.
Having suffered a shock 1-0 defeat against Atalanta in their last home game, i Biancocelesti are available at 7/5 (2.40) to bounce back with a victory in front of their own fans.
The visitors have drawn just one of their last 16 matches in all competitions, but you can get odds of 11/5 (3.20) on them settling for a point in this one.
After overseeing seven defeats and just four wins in 12 games, Seedorf’s short reign at the San Siro is in danger of being over before it ever really got started.
According to reports in Italy, the Dutchman was given the next two games to save his job during a meeting with the club’s bosses on Wednesday, an ominous ultimatum considering they consist of trips to Lazio and Fiorentina.
Given that his team have lost both of their last two way games against these opponents, it is hard to see Seedorf sparking a remarkable turnaround in fortunes with a first win at the Stadio Olimpico in over four years on Sunday.
In contrast to their opponents, the hosts are reaping the benefits of a mid-season managerial change that has seen with Edy Reja transform a team that sat just six points off relegation on his return to the club into challengers for European qualification.
Having secured a their third win in four Serie A games with a morale-boosting 2-0 away victory against Cagliari last time out, Reja’s men provide excellent value at 7/5 (2.40) to add to Milan’s misery by collecting all three points once again here.
