Italian Serie A – AC Milan vs Chievo Betting Preview

AC Milan started off their new season in excellent fashion by winning both of their opening games, but since their 1-0 defeat at home against Juventus their following two games have both ended up in draws and this has now seen the club slip down the league table and the players will need to find re-discover their form they showed at the start of the season to return to winning ways on saturday evening.

Chievo have had a tough time of it so far at this early stage of the new season, they have managed to secure a victory when beating Napoli 1-0 away from home in their second game of the season, but they have also suffered three defeats and currently occupy 15th place in the league table on just 4pts.

This is a fixture that they have seldom done well in over the years and are yet to beat AC Milan at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, but they have managed to find the net in every league game they have played this season and that in itself should restore some confidence to the players.

AC Milan vs Chievo Head to Head Statistics:

Saturday night’s game at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza will become the 25th meeting between the two clubs. AC Milan have a commanding advantage from these previous matches played having won 18 times compared to Chievo having only won 2. AC Milan also hold a significant advantage in previous fixtures played at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza where they have won 10 times compared to Chievo having failed to win any.

AC Milan Recent Form

28/09/14 SEA Cesena vs AC Milan 1 : 1
23/09/14 SEA Empoli vs AC Milan 2 : 2
20/09/14 SEA AC Milan vs Juventus 0 : 1
14/09/14 SEA Parma vs AC Milan 4 : 5
31/08/14 SEA AC Milan vs Lazio 3 : 1

Very much a mixed bag of results recently for AC Milan as although they have managed two victories, their defeat against Juventus has been followed by two draws against teams they would of expected to win and it does seem to suggest that their confidence is suffering at the moment.

Chievo Recent Form

28/09/14 SEA Chievo vs Empoli 1 : 1
24/09/14 SEA Sampdoria vs Chievo 2 : 1
21/09/14 SEA Chievo vs Parma 2 : 3
14/09/14 SEA Napoli vs Chievo 0 : 1
30/08/14 SEA Chievo vs Juventus
0 : 1

Chievo have recorded just one victory during their previous five matches played and have lost three times during the process, although it must be mentioned that they have scored in four out of those five played and with their opponents having failed to keep a clean sheet during their last five games, the visitors will obviously fancy their chances.

AC Milan Team News:

Manager Filippo Inzaghi will be missing his Captain Riccardo Montolivo along with Riccardo Saponara for this game as both players continue to receive treatment for long term injury problems. Brazilian defender Alex is a doubt as he has also been struggling with injury in recent weeks and it also looks unlikely he will feature for the hosts either. Jeremy Menez and Keisuke Honda are the clubs top goalscorers so far this season with 3 each and both look likely to be involved on saturday night.

Chievo News:

Manager Eugenio Corini has a fully fit squad to choose his starting lineup from and could make some changes to the side that drew 1-1 against Empoli last weekend. Striker Alberto Paloschi is the clubs current top goalscorer this season with 2 and he will be leading the attack on saturday night for the visitors.

Empoli vs AC Milan Average Goals Per Game Statistics

61 Goals have been scored in the previous 24 matches played between the two clubs, which provides us with an overall average goals per game statistic of 2.54.

38 of these Goals have been scored in the 12 matches played between the two clubs at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza and this generates us with an average goals per game statistic of 3.16 for this match.

Looking at both average goals per game statistics, it seems to indicate that we should see a few goals scored during this game on saturday night and the Over 2.5 goals betting market looking a strong possibility.

AC Milan vs Chievo Current Betting Odds Market

AC Milan are the clear odds on favourites to win this game and are a current best price of just 4/9 with Coral – Deposit £5 & Receive £20 Free Bets for New Customers, and although this does seem a bit short, their domination in this fixture over the years does justify their odds.

The Draw is an unlikely outcome when looking at the current best odds of 15/4 with Bet365 – £200 Matched Bonus Bets for New Customers, but it does look great value for me as I do expect Chievo to get at least one during this game.

Chievo are not given much hope of winning their first ever game at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza as their current best odds of 17/2 with BetVictor – £25 Free Bets for New Customers clearly indicates, although they are far from out of it in my opinion and this result could be a lot closer than the online bookmakers seem to suggest.

AC Milan vs Chievo Free Sports Bets, Tips & Predictions

On paper this should be a very straight forward victory for AC Milan as not only have Chievo never managed to beat them at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, the last five meetings between the two clubs does show AC Milan having a very commanding advantage and I can understand the bookmakers offering up such a short price on them to win this game.

However, Chievo certainly look like a side of fighters if their results this season are anything to go by as although they have lost three of their opening five matches played, they have managed to score in each game and with AC Milan having dipped in form since their 1-0 defeat at home against Juventus, Chievo will obviously fancy their chances here.

The average goals per game statistics are suggesting the game to see at least three goals scored and so there are a number of betting markets that could make appeal when looking for some value and my Banker has got to be Both Teams to Score here at what I believe are very generous odds available with my Saver being an Anytime Correct Score of AC Milan 2-1.
