AC Milan vs Crotone
Italy Serie A
Date: Sunday, 7 February 2021
Kick-Off at 14.00 UK
Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.
Top of the table meets the very bottom on Sunday afternoon at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza. Milan will host the rock-bottomed Crotone as massive favourites to snatch another three-pointer and stay ahead of the bitter rivals Inter atop the league ladder.
I Rossoneri returned to the winning ways last weekend after back-to-back defeats in all competitions. They saw off Bologna with goals from Ante Rebic and Franck Kessie in a match which saw Zlatan Ibrahimovic missing the penalty midway through the first half.
Crotone clearly lack the quality for the elite tier football. They received another significant setback seven days ago, falling 0-3 at home to Genoa.
It was the fifth loss in the last six league outings for Giovanni Stroppa and his troops. They really do not have much to hope for going into the clash against the table-toppers here.
AC Milan vs Crotone Head-to-head
- Crotone have never been a genuine threat to Milan. I Rossoneri won five and drew one of six head to head affairs so far.
- Milan picked up an easy 0-2 victory in the reverse fixture played in late-September last year at Stadio Ezio Scida.
- I Rossoneri kept three consecutive clean sheets in matches against I Pitagorici.
AC Milan vs Crotone Prediction
Crotone have by far the worst defensive record in the league. They shipped 46 goals in 20 league games this season. They allowed three goals against the likes of Genoa last weekend on the home patch.
This will be the music to the ears of Zlatan Ibrahimovic who is the fourth top scorer in the competition with 12 goals in 10 appearances this term.
Stefano Pioli’s men should be in full control from the very start of the game. We will back the hosts to have the lead at the half time and win the match at the end at the 1.72 odds.
The Over 2.5 goals FT is also an option at the 1.53 odds, while braver punters can try with Milan to win by three or more goals difference at the odds of 2.65.
