MILAN-VS-HELLAS-VERONA-19-january-2014-prediction

“It is time for AC Milan to start winning”, these are the words with which Milan’s new coach, Clarence Seedorf set a new goal for the Rossonerri. Even though opinions on his abilities to bring Milan back on track are divided, some fans still see him as their idol and as a result the only one who can lift it up from within.

Nobody expected Milan to lose to Sassuolo, especially not when they were leading with 2-0, but it happened and they lost with a really tight margin – a 4-3 thriller match, which left Milan’s players confused and frustrated on the field. Rossonerri are on the 11th place with 22 points and with just a +1 goal difference (they scored 31 goals, as opposed to conceding 30.)

Hellas Verona is the unlikely contender for a Europa League spot, as they reside on the 6th place with the same number of points as Inter Milano, separated only by the goal difference. Their most recent result includes a loss to Napoli with 3-0, and their seventh this season, but for them everything looks rather promising. The players to watch in this team would be Luca Toni, Juan Manuel Iturbe and Romulo; they are the ones in charge of making something different in away matches for Verona.

With only Balotelli being under question, and with the new signings Rami and Honda, AC Milan is tipped to win this match, and still bookmakers lean towards a lot of goals to be scored. William Hill has 3.00 odds for both teams to score and Milan to win, while Kaka as an anytime goalscorer is at 2.00, and AC Milan to win both halves is at 2.00. Since there is a big chance for everything ending in a draw, the same bookmaker offers 4.40 odds for it to happen.
