Spezia vs AC Milan
Italy Serie A
Date: Saturday, 13 February 2021
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Stadio Alberto Picco, La Spezia.
Spezia made a massive step towards securing the elite-class survival by beating Sassuolo 1-2 on the road last weekend.
Aquilotti managed to bounce back after conceding an early goal as they turned things around via striker from centre-back Martin Erlic and forward Emanuel Gyasi. It was a precious victory for Vincenzo Italiano and his troops who are now five points above the danger area.
Nonetheless, the victory at Sassuolo will count for little ahead of the clash against the red-hot table-toppers Milan who come to visit Stadio Alberto Picco on Saturday evening.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Ante Rebic completed a brace each in a demolishing 4-0 victory over Crotone on Sunday at Stadio San Siro.
The Rossoneri thus kept a two-point cushion ahead of bitter city rivals Inter at the top of the standings. They can’t afford a slip-up against relegation strugglers if they want to stay on top, especially knowing that Juventus have risen in form at the start of the year.
Spezia vs AC Milan Head-to-head
- This will only be the third head to head clash between the two outfits.
- Milan claimed two comprehensive victories so far.
- I Rossoneri won 3-1 in the Coppa Italia clash played in 2014, while they claimed a 3-0 victory in this season’s Serie A outing at Stadio San Siro.
Spezia vs AC Milan Prediction
Milan have an incredible away record in this term of Serie A. They won nine and drew one of ten league matches on the road this season. They have conceded only eight goals in the process.
On the other side, Aquilotti managed to snatch just one victory in ten league affairs on the home pitch this season. They lost three of the last four at Stadio Alberto Picco, although they’ve played the likes of Genoa, Verona, Sampdoria, and Udinese in the process.
Milan are heavy favourites in this outing and we sincerely doubt they will fail to snatch a three-pointer on Saturday. The away win is a banker bet at the odds of 1.50. You can also back Zlatan Ibrahimovic to score anytime at the 1.61 odds.
