Sports Innovation previews the Serie A match between Genoa and AC Milan and offers team stats and betting tips with the latest odds.

Tonight’s midweek Serie A game will see AC Milan take a trip to Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris to face Genoa. Although Rossoneri has been doing pretty well for themselves in the Italian top-flight, this result could go anywhere. However, Stefano Pioli will expect a good display from his side against the hosts who are currently lying in the relegation zone. Moreover, they have the opportunity to level points with league leaders Napoli if their result against Sassuolo goes the wrong way tonight.

Rossoblu have managed to achieve just 10 points in their opening 14 fixtures in Serie A so far and there have been signs of worry as they head towards the contention of getting kicked out for the next term. But, it is still the beginning of the season, and things could change for them on the way. Nevertheless, Genoa hope to pull something from tonight’s game against the struggling visitors.

Selected best tips from our partner

Current form — Genoa v. AC Milan

The form of both teams is one of the biggest things to consider before placing a bet on the upcoming game.

Genoa in serious trouble

Genoa go into this encounter on the back of a miserable form in previous games. Genoa have been a tad mediocre in their last 3 matches, where a win has failed to come their way. Against Empoli, they gained a point in a 2-2 draw, before coming up short against Roma who ran out 2-0 winners. Lately, they managed to steal a point in a 0-0 with Udinese.

AC Milan aim for three points

It has been an inconsistent season for AC Milan this campaign. In their previous three games, they have secured only three points starting with a humiliating loss at Fiorentina by 4-3. It was followed by a win against Atletico Madrid by 1-0 in the Champions League. However, Milan lost to Sassuolo by 3-1 at San Siro in their latest encounter in Serie A.

Being both the bookmakers favourite at odds 1.65 and with stronger performances lately than Genoa has put on a show, AC Milan seem the natural pick. Should this price be a tad low for your betting strategy, consider adding it to an accumulator.
