AC Milan vs Genoa Betting Preview – 31/10/2018

AC Milan vs Genoa

Italian Serie A action returns on the last day of October on Wednesday evening as AC Milan take on Genoa at the famous San Siro stadium in an exciting tie for both sides. The hosts currently sit seventh in in the table after four wins from nine, but they return to action in midweek with a chance of potentially breaking into the top five places in the Italian first division with a win in their game in hand.

Gennaro Gattuso’s AC Milan haven’t lost against Genoa since 2016 and aside from a 1-0 loss to Inter Milan a game prior to their 3-2 win over Sampdoria last time out, Milan were on a winning run which had stretched to three matches, with their second win in the Europa League coming within that streak. Milan are 10/11 with Betway to win here and after their last four wins in the league have seen Wednesday’s hosts concede, a win and both teams to score here is 2/1 with Sky Bet.

Spearheading Milan’s attacks has been star striker Gonzalo Higuaín, who has five goals in seven matches and the Argentine to score first here is an attractive 7/2 with Bet 365. Winger Suso has also been impressive and now has three goals and seven assists in nine games this term and the forward to score anytime here is 7/4 with Sky Bet. Both players to score in the match can be priced at 9/2 with the same bookmaker.

A combined 31 goals in nine matches at both ends of the pitch has made Milan one of the most watchable sides in the league this season and over 2.5 goals here for the fifth time in six matches is 8/11 with Betfair. The hosts have also scored three or more goals on four occasions in all competitions this term and Milan to score 3 or more goals this week is 13/8 with Sky Bet.

Genoa will be hoping to leapfrog Milan, who sit just one point above them in the division, with a win at the San Siro this week. Three points would also get them into fifth in the table, which would be a huge achievement given their 12th placed finish last term and hopes of finishing in the UEFA Champions League spots would become all so real for Ivan Jurić’s side and their fans. The travelling team have drawn back-to-back matches against Udinese and away to Juventus, which was another huge achievement and evidence of their progression and another draw here is 18/5 with William Hill, whilst the fifth win of the campaign for Genoa is an attractive 6/1 with Bet Victor.

Main man Christian Kouame has been influential in Genoa’s good form and a big part of their attacking play with three assists in his last four Serie A games. On the end of those assists has been the impressive young Polish striker Krzysztof Piatek, who has nine from nine this season and currently tops the goal-scoring charts alongside Inter Milan’s Mauro Icardi and Napoli’s Lorenzo Insigne and another goal in 90 minutes here is 7/4 with Bet 365. The 23-year-old to score first is 6/1, whilst the impressive Goran Pandev also possesses a threat and is 10/3 with Sky Bet to score in the match.
