AC Milan vs Genoa Prediction & Betting tips
The game between AC Milan and Genoa also takes place as a ghost game. A fate that can be observed for the majority of Serie A matches on this matchday. The authorities have decided to take this drastic step because of the risk posed by the corona virus. The home side must therefore do without their fans as a supporting factor.
On the other hand, with Genoa, only the third last in Serie A stops by the Guiseppe Meazza stadium, which is why this disadvantage can be neglected to some extent. The Genoese have struggled a little closer to the saving bank with two consecutive victories, but they went bankrupt again last weekend against the furiously kicking footballers from Lazio.
As in the previous year, when the relegation could hardly be prevented, the Rossoblu must fear again for the relegation. The home side want to score points in the fight for international business. AC Milan vs. Genoa tip aims at a hit by Ante Rebic on the part of the hosts.
The Croatian has recently been taken into account by coach Stefano Pioli for the starting eleven and is paying back this advance of trust through consistently good performances. The 26-year-old has scored in six of the last eight competitive matches. The AC Milan against Genoa forecast provides for three units of use.

The Rossoneri had to forego international business this season for violations of financial fair play, although it would have been enough for the Europa League to finish fifth.
The exclusion had the parallel advantage that the focus could be placed more on league operations. However, the season is disappointing. The 18-time champion of the country currently occupies only seventh place. During the winter break, at least the offensive was prominently strengthened through the signing of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
However, the old master must now realize that it is a bit more difficult to score goals in Serie A compared to the MLS. There, the Swede had more or less meshed in every match at Los Angeles Galaxy. At Milan he only has two goals after seven Liag games.
Nevertheless, the transfer can be seen as an enrichment of the offensive, which still has the clearly weakest value in the upper third of the table with 27 goals. For a few weeks now, at least Ante Rebic has been cranking it up completely. The striker came from Eintracht in Frankfurt at the beginning of the season on the basis of a lending transaction and already seemed to be labeled as a mistake.
Hardly any operating times and no goals led to this assessment. But this is history now: the 26-year-old has been scoring for four competitive games. On top of that, very important meetings like the 1-1 against Juve in the cup or the 1-0 victory against Turin FC.
It was also on the last match day that Milan owed a point when the attacker contributed the only goal in the 1-1 draw against Florence. It is obvious that Rebic is now highly motivated by the false start at Milan to relieve the previous frustration and to show that his loan was by no means a flop.
Davide Nicola only took over the coaching post for the relegation from last year at the end of December last year. He is already the third trainer to swing the sporty scepter on the sidelines this season.
Nicola previously worked as a trainer for Crotone and Udinese. He inherited Thiago Motta and knows the club very well, as he spent six seasons as a CFC player. The 46-year-old made a successful debut with a 2-1 win over Sassuolo.
After almost two months in the position, his results in terms of the league and the Coppa Italia with three wins, four losses and two draws are mixed. An interim successful phase with victories against Bologna and Cagliari came to an end last weekend.
The reason was the defeat of the nine-time Italian title holder at home with 2: 3 against Lazio Rome. However, it is known that the capitals are currently unstoppable, which is why this bankruptcy can at least be put into perspective against the strong second ranks. At the same time, the defensive was once again vulnerable.
A problem that seemed to be resolved after the number of goals conceded in recent weeks could be limited. But this could have been a fallacy, especially since the Argentinian Cristian Gabriel Romero is currently an otherwise defensive player.
During the winter break, retrofits were made, in which the Frenchman Adama Soumaoro from Lille and the Italian Andrea Masiello were signed. However, it can be doubted whether, for example, the latter defender, at the age of 34, who was hardly used by his previous employer in Bergamo, is a reinforcement.
Soumararo is significantly younger, but this season’s Great Danes from Ligue 1 were also almost entirely on the siding. In view of the defensive, which is probably still fragile, we believe that the hosts’ usually rather narrow series of attacks will have at least two goals.
