After three matchdays in Serie A, AC Milan find themselves on the fourth place, as they get ready to visit Empoli for the only Tuesday match. AC Milan start as the obvious favorites to win outright, even if Empoli are on the 18th place, they have impressed in the match against AS Roma, and may be further spurred to exit the relegation zone.
Empoli have only one point from the first three games, the draw against Cesena coming after the team managed to come from behind two goals to level up before the final whistle. Their main stars, Tavano and Maccarone have had difficulties adapting to Serie A, but they are still among the favorites to get that goal against a Milan side with Champions League ambitions. Their ranks also count with a youngster raised by AC Milan, but playing for Empoli, as Simone Verdi vows to try and score against his former team.
AC Milan come into the match after losing the big derby against Juventus, which put them on the 4th place, three points behind leaders Juventus and AS Roma. Aside from that, Milan have very interesting choices in the attack, as Honda, Torres, El Shaarawy and Menez can always score a goal out of no chance at all. The team is picking up lost force mainly thanks to Pippo Inzaghi, the former AC Milan glory stating in a recent interview “When they appointed me they asked for the growth of this squad and to get this side back to its levels of the past.”
The two teams haven’t played against each other since 2008, but with the way Milan is managing their midfield, the odds for an outright win, and 1.80 with Bet365 does not look that bad at all. An Empoli win comes at 4.50 and a draw at 3.50. AC Milan for both halves is at 2.75, Empoli at 7.50 and AC Milan to win and Empoli not to score is at 3.00.
