AC Milan Prediction – Can AC Milan start new year with win?

AC Milan were handed a 5-0 thrashing away at Atalanta last time out in Serie A just before Christmas but they’ll return to their Stadio Giuseppe Meazza for tonight’s clash against Sampdoria in hopeful mood as they look to bounce back with talisman striker, Ibrahimovic, leading the line.

Ibrahimovic is a winter signing from MLS outfit, LA Galaxy, and will bolster the hosts attacking prowess no doubt as AC Milan look to improve upon their current home record which stands at an average looking 2-3-3 7/10.

Prior to that heavy defeat away from home at Atalanta, AC Milan had put together a promising 4-match unbeaten sequence which included wins against Parma and Bologna as well as picking up useful points in draws with Napoli and Sassuolo in 1-1 and 0-0 draws.

Although AC Milan’s overall home record doesn’t appear to be anything to write home about, the hosts have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 5 matches on home turf and could be a harder unit to beat in this current situation.

Sampdoria Prediction – Can Sampdoria get anything in Milan?

Sampdoria suffered a third defeat in four matches just before the winter break when they lost 2-1 at home to Juventus which left the visitors fourth from bottom in the Italian top flight and just 1 point above the relegation zone prior to Monday night’s action.

Earlier defeats to Cagliari and Parma have prevented the visitors from pulling themselves further away from the bottom three, and although they registered a 1-0 win away from home at Genoa last time out on their travels, this could be a tough trip coming up to Milan this Monday night.

In particular, Sampdoria’s overall away record stands at a poor 2-0-6 8/16 with their only other win on the road to date in this season’s Serie A being a 1-0 win over bottom club, SPAL, but with just 4 away wins out of their last 18 matches on the road, Sampdoria look to be up against it here.

The visitors have also lost their last two trips to AC Milan, losing 3-2 and 1-0 respectively and they could find themselves on the losing side again on Monday night.


Key-Facts – AC Milan vs Sampdoria

  • AC Milan have lost just 1 of their last 5 matches at home in Serie A
  • Sampdoria have won just 4 of their last 18 away matches in Serie A
  • AC Milan have won the last two meetings at home against Sampdoria


Betting Tips Verdict

AC Milan should have the edge over Sampdoria here.
