Friday 24 January
Stadio Mario Rigamonti – Serie A
Milan continue to impress in after the winter break and will travel to play a struggling Brescia in Serie A on Friday. Stefano Pioli has got the engines running at San Siro and the team have yet to lose after recruiting Zlatan Ibrahimovic on a free transfer this month.
Brescia have only beat Milan once in their last 21 meetings and Milan are currently on a run of seven wins against the newly promoted side. Their last three games have included a clean sheet and the reverse fixture this term ended in a 1-0 win at San Siro, thanks to Hakan Calhanoglu. Brescia last won against Milan in Serie A 2002-03, when they secured a 1-0 win at the Mario Rigamonti.
Brescia go into the game without their back-up goalkeeper Enrico Alfonso, who’s out with an illness and the left-back Ales Mateju has already missed one match due to a stomach problem. They could still make it, but would probably not participate since the home side have a full squad otherwise.
A lot of players are linked with a move away from Milan and Ricardo Rodriguez has been missing for the last four games along with rumours about a move to Fenerbahce or PSV Eindhoven. Lucas Biglia has been out since the start of the year with a bicep injury and goalscorer from the reverse tie Calhanoglu struggles with a calf problem. He could still be missing this Friday and Davide Calabria has a distorted ankle. Mateo Musacchio could also miss out with a bruised ankle.
Brescia vs. Milan Preview and Predictions
Milan have really found their feet and climbed to eight in the League after the turn, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic has had a great impact on San Siro. Despite scoring only once in his three games, the side has been boosted by his return and may be backed at 1.80 to win also in Brescia this Friday.
Milan were tested to the limit by an on-form Udinese and after going through a period where they were struggling to score, they have now scored eight in three games. Udinese were the only ones scoring on Milan in 2020, but they kept up their winning streak with a 3-2 win at San Siro.
Brescia on the other hand, held Cagliari to a draw last round and may be backed at 3.90 to hold Milan to a back-to-back draw at the Rigamonti. The home side have gone three games without a win, and the 3-0 triumph against Lecce was their only three pointer at their own turf this term. Brescia are currently 18th in the League and will be desperate to win over a Milan going through a small revival.
They may be backed at 4.65 to win their second game at home this season and their fight for survival goes on. One point behind Lecce at safety and Milan wouldn’t be the dream opponent at this moment. Theo Hernandez have really been making the headlines in Lombardy this term and scored again last fixture. But it was Ante Rebic who came on and helped the Rossoneri turn the match on its head, trying to claim a place in Pioli’s side.
Total goals Over 2.5 at 1.76
Milan were struggling to score goals, but lately they’ve been looking hot on form in front of goal. Only a month ago, it would have been difficult to predict a lot of goals from Pioli’s men, but this time it’s almost expected of them to score Over 2.5 themselves against a side like Brescia.
Milan to win to nil at 3.00
The Rossoneri have kept three clean sheets in four games after the winter break and Brescia are struggling for goals. They should pick up another three points and Gigio Donnarumma might keep his net empty also this time around.
