AC Milan vs Pescara Predictions

AC Milan’s great run of form was brought to an end by Genoa in midweek, so they’ve been handed a kind fixture here. They need to quickly get back to winning ways if they’re to push for a Champions League spot, so they’ll be delighted to face off against newly promoted Pescara. There’s quite a difference between this weekend’s visitor to the San Siro and last Saturday’s, with Milan seeing off champions Juventus a week ago.

Pescara aren’t a great side, and they’re very little compared to Juventus. The visitors sit 17th in the table, with just seven points this season. They’ve been struggling away from home, and this looks to be a step too far for them. They’ve conceded 1.75 per away trip on average, scoring 1.25. However, that record includes a trip to Sassuolo, where their 2-1 defeat was ruled out, with the visitors being declared 3-0 winners by default.

If you look at their away games without that result, you see a struggling side. They’ve conceded seven in three games since then, scoring just twice. That’s an average of 0.67 goals per game, with over two conceded per outing. They’ve got some serious problems at the back.

One man to keep an eye on here is Carlos Bacca, the former Sevilla forward has been in fantastic form for Milan since rejecting a summer switch to West Ham. He’s found the net six times in the league this season, and he’s scored five of those at home in just five games. That’s an impressive record, and he should be able to add to that this weekend. Pescara have conceded 15 goals so far, and they concede from 16% of the shots they face. That makes Milan’s leading forward look like good value to score any time at 5/6 with bet365.

AC Milan should dominate this game, they’ve averaged two goals per game at home so far. They’ve found the net from 15% of their shots. They will have a chance to improve that record against a side who’ve yet to secure a victory for themselves this term. We’re backing the hosts to claim a comfortable win on Sunday, Milan on the -1 handicap is our bet here, which is priced at 21/20 with bet365.
