The Rossoneri are desperate for a win after collecting just four points from their last four games, but Al Hain-Cole expects them to struggle against a prolific visiting attack
Massimiliano Allegri’s men looked on course for just their fourth win in 10 Serie A games before Mickael Ciani pegged back Kaka’s fine strike, but they are available at evens (2.00) with Betway to hold out for a victory this time out.
La Viola were also left frustrated after a 2-1 home defeat to Napoli brought an end to their six-match unbeaten streak and they are on offer at 13/5 (3.60) to secure a third successive away win over these opponents.
The stalemate against Lazio means the hosts have drawn their last two games on home soil, and you can get odds of 12/5 (3.40) on them settling for a point once again here.
Although i Rossoneri players were booed off the pitch after Wednesday’s draw, their manager was insistent that his team had played well are were merely punished for a lack of concentration in conceding the equaliser.
However, if Allegri’s men were unable to cope with an extremely defensive Lazio side, they will surely be punished by a visiting team averaging two goals a game in the league this season and who recently put four past a notoriously solid Juventus.
Vincenzo Montella’s side felt extremely aggrieved to come away with nothing against Napoli and were furious not to receive a penalty after Juan Cuadrado was controversially sent off for diving during one of their numerous attacks.
While the Colombian will miss this game through suspension, his absence will be tempered by the return to action of Mario Gomez, who scored twice in three games before suffering a knee injury after his high profile summer move from Bayern Munich.
With Gomez and Serie A top scorer Giuseppe Rossi in tandem another high-scoring match seems inevitable between two sides who have served up 11 goals in their last three encounters, and odds of 3/4 (1.75) are not to be missed on over 2.5 goals going in.
That bet would have paid out in seven of Fiorentina’s last eight games, as well as four of their last five clashes with Milan.
