The season is coming to an end after what has been a long delay, with just two games left for Stefano Pioli’s men. Having been confirmed as AC Milan’s manager for the upcoming two years, he will be looking to finish on top.
Since the restart, the Rossoneri haven’t exactly been hard to bet on given their impressive form. Milan’s owners – who usually operate from London – are surely very happy with this turnaround, just like all the punters who have been placing their bets on Milan lately.
UK customers who use the most popular online bookies should check out freebets.com when betting on Milan, and benefit even more. As they take advantage of both the rather safe bet, combined with special bonuses given out bookmakers, their chances of earning are increasing.
Back to Milan, they haven’t lost a single game since the league resumption and have only drawn three, winning the other seven games. In the process, they have beaten the likes of Juventus, Lazio and Roma – most likely resulting in many people losing some bets.
The bookies were actually siding Juve for the game that took place on July 7th giving them chances of 2.3 on average as opposed to Milan with 3.37. What we have to say to bettors in times like these is ‘well, better luck next time!’
Now, just two tests remain for Pioli’s side and as mentioned, they will need to finish with six points in the bag to have a shot at a top-five finish. Of course, considering how the season started, it would be massive to secure a direct spot to Europa League.
On paper, Milan are considered favourites for their last two games (with current odds of 11/1), taking on Sampdoria and Cagliari. Then again, despite their amazing run since the restart, they only managed a draw against SPAL a few weeks back – albeit they were very unlucky.
Sampdoria (X/2 – 4.00/1.61*): The reverse fixture ended 0-0 at the San Siro as Milan wasted several chances to break the deadlock. Zlatan Ibrahimovic made his second debut but was unable to make a mark on the game. Now, however, the situation is completely favourite.
The Genua side have done quite well since the restart, grabbing five wins and five losses. No in-between, therefore, which is perfect for Milan as they need all the points they can get.
Obviously, the safe bet would be a Milan win but at the same time, Sampdoria haven’t been terrible by any means lately and a draw shouldn’t be excluded.
Cagliari (1): The reverse fixture ended 2-0 in favour of Milan, as Ibrahimovic and Rafael Leao got on target. The Sardinia side have won just two games since the restart but they have also managed four draws.
In recent seasons, they have been a tough team to break, which is evidenced by the fact that they have conceded just ten goals since the restart. That’s one less than Milan, so it will be a tricky game for the latter.
That being said, Milan will play at home and this clash should be easier than the one against Sampdoria. Therefore, I would bet a Milan win here as well (odds are not available yet but will most likely be low).
