AC Milan Prediction

AC Milan head into this Friday night clash with Empoli having won three of their last four matches overall with a Coppa Italia 2-0 home win over Napoli along with recent back-to-back wins in Serie A against Cagliari and Atalanta, winning 3-0 and 3-1 respectively.

Having narrowly missed out on progressing through to the knockout stages of the Europa League as they were pipped at the post for second spot by Greek outfit Olympiakos (on goal difference), AC Milan can now fully concentrate on nailing down a top four finish which would guarantee them automatic qualification for next season’s Champions League.

The hosts possess a pretty strong and solid home record in Serie A which stands at 7-3-2 19/12 and includes just one defeat from their last six matches on home turf, which was a 1-0 loss to Fiorentina, but recent wins against Parma, SPAL and Cagliari have maintained their bid for a top four finish in the Italian top flight.

Forwards Suso (5 goals) and Piatek (4 goals) look the most likely to score for the hosts.

 

Key-Facts – AC Milan v Empoli

  • AC Milan have lost just 1 of their last 6 matches at home in Serie A
  • Empoli have yet to record an away win in Serie A this season
  • Empoli have conceded 2 goals or more in 8 of their 11 away matches

 

Empoli Prediction

Empoli continue to hover dangerously just above the relegation zone but they hold a three point cushion above the bottom three thanks to a recent 3-0 home win over Sassuolo which ended a run of eight matches without a win in Serie A.

However, Empoli had lost six of those previous eight matches in that miserable sequence, and they face a tough trip against AC Milan away from home this Friday which is made worse by the fact that Empoli are still without an away win on their travels in this campaign.

An away record of 0-4-7 11/25 underlines the problems that Empoli have had on the road this season, and keeping just one clean sheet on their travels as well certainly hasn’t helped matters. In addition, Empoli have conceded 2 goals or more in 8 of their 11 away matches too, so they could be in for another long evening in Milan.

Betting Tips Verdict

AC Milan will be ken to grab another three points here as they look to close in on a Champions League spot at the expense of a fragile Empoli defence on Friday night at their Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in Milan.
