Match Date: 28 September 2014 (local time)

Venue: Stadio Dino Manuzzi

 

AC Milan stumbled again after enduring a narrow defeat from Juventus. Pitted against the newly promoted Empoli, the top pick of online bookies, was forced to settle for a stalemate and on the 6th spot of the Serie A table. They will be meeting Cesena, which is eager to seek redemption after being thrashed and kept at bay by the Bianconerri.

 

The contenders

Cesena

Cesena was unable to respond to Juventus’ attacks during their last meeting. A prolific Arturo Vidal led the Bianconerri’s scoring antics and the Seahorses could only watch in disappointment as their club  drowned into the ocean of defeat. What was even more frustrating was the fact that their opponent were able to keep a clean sheet against them.

 

AC Milan

A Fernando Torres inspired match readily characterized AC Milan’s late rally against Empoli. The match could have ended in the latter’s favor, until Torres unleashed the prolific striker in him. The former Chelsea poacher nailed an impressive header that was immediately followed by a left footed shot from Keisuke Honda.

 

Unfortunately, the Rossoneris were unable to capitalize on the momentum and was instead, forced to swallow a not so satisfying draw.

 

Possible head turners

There is a high possibility for Torres to feature in the next match. His arrival in AC Milan has been the talk of the town and evidently, the Spaniard showed that he is worthy of every penny spent on his transfer.

 

Prediction

Cesena 0-3 AC Milan
