Competition: Serie A

Market: AC Milan win and over 2.5 goals

Odds: 1/1 @ Bet 365

Looking to shore up their position in Serie A top-four, a high-flying AC Milan will welcome Empoli to the San Siro on Friday night.

Starting with Gennaro Gattuso’s side, coming off the back of a very impressive 3-1 win away at fellow European contenders Atalanta last weekend, the mood in AC Milan’s camp should be on a high. Now sat just four points adrift of bitter rivals Inter, Friday’s hosts are now enjoying a six-match unbeaten run that stems back to the 16th of January. Along with scoring six in their last two, it will be AC’s ongoing for at the San Siro most impressing Gattuso. I Rossoneri have now conceded just one goal on home soil in over 400 minutes of action.

As for the visitors, while Empoli may have shocked many by picking up a much-needed win over Sassuolo last weekend, it doesn’t cover what has been a very worrying campaign for Giuseppe Iachini. Now holding just a three-point buffer from slipping into the relegation zone in Serie A, it has been their form away from the Stadio Carlo Castellani becoming the biggest concern. Still unable to pick up an away win in any competition this season, Empoli have also now conceded two or more goals in seven of their last eight matches on the road.
