Massimiliano Allegri's men are lacking in both confidence and first-team regulars, so Al Hain-Cole expects them to struggle against Gian Piero Gasperini's side
Massimiliano Allegri’s men are currently 19 points behind leaders Roma in 10th place in the Serie A table but are favourites at 9/20 (1.45) with BetVictor to secure a fifth consecutive win over these opponents.
Gian Piero Gasperini has overseen four wins and a draw in his six games since returning to the Stadio Luigi Ferraris and is available at 15/2 (8.50) to mastermind another victory in this one.
Having drawn two of their last three league fixtures, the hosts are on offer at 17/5 (4.40) to settle for a single point once again here.
The Rossoneri’s miserable form this campaign is underlined by the fact that they go into this match four points and three places lower in the table than their visitors, who only narrowly avoided relegation last season.
To be fair to the Grifone, they have been in sparkling form since Gasperini decided to return to the club where he made his name, with only Juventus coming out on top against a team that had lost four and won just one of their previous six league games.
Having not even conceded a goal on the way to winning their last three matches, Genoa will be confident of securing a positive result against a home side severely lacking in both confidence and first-team regulars after a spate of injuries.
Suspended captain Riccardo Montolivo is joined on the sidelines by the injured Stephan El Shaarawy, Antonio Nocerino and Cristian Zapata, and these absences are sure to make a tough game even tighter for Milan.
Considering under 2.5 goals have been scored in nine of the visitors’ last 10 away games in Serie A and four of the hosts last five in their own back yard, odds of 17/20 (1.85) seem to offer remarkably good value on no more than two going in here, particularly as that scoreline has not been exceeded in any of the last seven meetings between the sides.
