Competition: Serie A
Market: AC Milan win and over 1.5 goals
Odds: 21/20 @ 888sport
Smelling a real chance to extend their buffer at the top of the Serie A table, AC Milan will make the trip to a struggling Sampdoria on Sunday night.
Starting with the hosts, throwing away the lead last weekend and having to settle for a point against relegation scrappers Torino, Sampdoria have rather drastically struggled after a stunning run during October. Now continuing to freefall down the Serie A table and enduring by far their most worrying rut of the season so far, former Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri has seen his side fail to win any of their last five matchups across all competitions. With their recent issues highlighted by a 3-1 drumming at the hands of Genoa in the Coppa Italia a fortnight ago, Sampdoria also have a real reputation for their problems at the back. Shipping at least a pair of goals in each of their last four contests on the bounce, it should also be noted that they were hit with a 4-1 drumming when they last faced off against AC back in July.
As for the visitors, while AC Milan might have shipped two early goals against Celtic on Europa League duties in midweek, the Italian giants did manage to mount a stunning comeback. Eventually leaving with a 4-2 romp and managing to book their spot in the knockout stage of this year’s tournament, I Rossoneri will find the mood in their camp at a red-hot high. Shocking almost everyone across Italy since opening the 2020/2021 campaign, Stefano Pioli’s men open this weekend’s fixtures holding a five-point buffer at the top of the table and are now seen as a real title contender. Also, last seen on domestic duties picking up what was a routine 2-0 victory against Fiorentina on home soil, Milan are remarkably unbeaten in each of their last 21 Serie A contests continuing on from last season.
Bet: AC Milan 21/20 to beat Sampdoria and over 1.5 for Sunday’s Serie A matchup @ 888sport
