Genoa CFC v AC Chievo Verona - Serie A

Match Date: 23 November 2013

Match Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza

 

AC Milan

Milan’s past four matches only gave them two points to their score. Defeats from Parma and Fiorentina, as well as lackluster draws with Lazio and Chievo, were key indicators of Milan’s rough run in the season. While they may have managed to remain within the top 10 by 12th week, their inconsistency could bring them down to the table’s lower reaches any time soon. The side have already accumulated 13 points as per 12 fixtures—won in three matches, drew in four, and lost in five.

 

Massimilliano Allegri is desparate to bag a win for his team, especially now that he is at his career’s least productive keystones. He has to capitalize on his men’s attack and ability for long shot opportunities if he wants his next fixture to end in a positive note.

 

Genoa

A healthy streak since three matches ago is resurrecting Genoa to Serie A’s better spots. They were previously nailed in the table’s relegation zone (week 2) but have since been able to recover and sail smoothly into the top seven.

 

Gian Piero Gasperini is making things a lot clearer now for Genoa. The team manager should be lauded for his extreme desire to put resilience into his squad’s spirit. Victories were necessary by ninth week, but their successes in the following weeks were just outright impressive. Clean sheets were delivered in their past three matches, which were mainly driven by Kucka and Gilardino.

 

Online betting tip: Milan’s ship is sinking while Genoa’s plane is soaring high. With opposite energies engulfing these sides, it is pretty apparent that Genoa will win this fight. A clean sheet is possible, but Milan might be lucky to score one goal. A 3-1 finish in favor of the visitors will determine the fate of this fixture.
