Hellas Verona and AC Milan will lock horns with each other in Serie A this weekend. The match between Marco Baroni’s side and Stefano Pioli’s team will be held at Stadio Marcantonio Bentegodi and is scheduled to kick off at 2 pm UK time on Sunday.

Hellas Verona

Hellas Verona are an established club in Serie A. While no one expects them to challenge for the European places in the league table, they do tend to stave off the dreaded drop to Serie B. Last season, Verona finished 17th in the Serie A table. They could fare better than that this time around.

Verona are 14th in the Serie A table at the moment with 26 points from 28 matches. Marco Baroni’s side are two points above the relegation zone. However, the likes of Cagliari, Lecce, Empoli, Frosinone, Sassuolo and Salernitana all are in in danger of going down.

I Gialloblu will head into the Serie A match against AC Milan on the back of a 1-0 victory over Lecce away from home in the league. It came after a 1-0 victory over Sassuolo which followed a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Bologna on the road in Serie A. 

Team News:

Hellas Verona are likely to line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation against AC Milan. Lorenzo Montipo will be in goal. Jackson Tchatchoua, Giangiacomo Magnani, Diego Coppola and Juan Cabal will be the four midfielders. Ondrej Duda and Suat Serdar will be the two holding midfielders. Tomas Suslov, Michael Folorunsho and Darko Lazovic will be the three attacking midfielders. Tijjani Noslin will lead the line for the home team.

AC Milan

AC Milan are one of the biggest and most historic clubs in the world. They are used to challenging for the Serie A title and playing in major competitions such as the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa League. The Italian giants will be disappointed by how the current season has panned out for them.

Milan are second in the Serie A table at the moment with 59 points from 28 matches. Stefano Pioli’s side are 16 points behind leaders and city rivals Inter Milan and are a point above Juventus. Milan are not going to win the Serie A title this season.

The Rossoneri beat Empoli 1-0 at San Siro in Serie A last weekend. That followed a 4-2 victory over Slavia Prague at home in the first leg of the UEFA Europa League Round of 16 tie. Milan will face Slavia in Prague in the second leg on Thursday evening.

Team News:

AC Milan are likely to line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation against Hellas Verona. Mike Maignan will be in goal for the Rossoneri. Davide Calabria, Malick Thiaw, Fikayo Tomori and Theo Hernandez will be the four midfielders. Ismael Bennacer and Tijjani Reijnders will be the two holding midfielders. Christian Pulisic, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Noah Okafor will be the three attacking midfielders. Luka Jovic will lead the line for Milan.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Hellas Verona have won their last 2 Serie A matches.
  • Hellas Verona have conceded 36 goals in 28 Serie A matches this season.
  • AC Milan have scored 52 goals in 28 Serie A games this campaign.
  • AC Milan have won 3 of their last 5 Serie A games.
  • Olivier Giroud has scored 12 goals and given 8 assists in 25 Serie A matches this season.

Conclusion

Hellas Verona are in good form at the moment and are at home for the match against AC Milan. But Milan have a better team and should be able to get the job done in the end.
