In a showdown between two sides who find themselves firmly battling it out at opposite ends of the Serie A table, Genoa vs AC Milan will take place on Wednesday night.

Starting with the hosts, while Genoa might have put in a spirited display at home against defending champions Juventus over the weekend, Head Coach Rolando Maran saw his men eventually suffer a 3-1 defeat at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris. Although I Rossoblù might be managing to find the net at a steady rate and also came past Sampdoria in the Coppa Italia last month thanks to a 3-1 win, their Serie A struggles have been well documented so far this season. Still firmly battling it out in the relegation zone and opening the midweek fixtures sat three points adrift of finding a route to safety, Genoa have mustered just a single top-flight point in any of their last six appearances. More concerning for Wednesday’s hosts, without a win to their name in Serie A since September 20th, it’s also worth highlighting that Genoa have lost each of their last five straight top-flight matchups on home soil, shipping over 1.5 goals in each of those defeats.

As for the visitors, while AC Milan might have been disappointed to have had to settle for a 2-2 draw at home against Parma over the weekend, the Italian giants have really taken Europe by storm this season. Building off of Juventus’ inconsistencies, I Rossoneri already find themselves holding a three-point buffer at the top of the table and many have billed them as a legitimate title contender this season. Also managing to cruise their way to the knockout stage of this year’s Europa League and with the mood in Stefano Pioli’s camp at a red-hot high, AC are unbeaten in all 11 of their Serie A matchups so far this season and have tasted defeat just once across all formats since opening the 2020/2021 campaign. With attacking talisman Zlatan Ibrahimović back in training and with seven of their last eight matchups seeing both teams find the net, we’re backing a similar outcome in midweek.
