Palermo will be hoping to break down the most resilient defence in the league when they travel to the San Siro for the first leg of the Coppa Italia semi-final.
With the competition drawing to a close, AC Milan will be eyeing up the prospect of a league and cup double.
But fresh from a 3-2 victory away to Roma at the weekend, their semi-final opponents, Palermo, are unlikely to be pushovers.
The two teams meet each other in the first-leg at the San Siro with Palermo fighting for a place in Europe next season and Milan leading the Serie A table by six points.
Punters can currently get odds of 11/20 on Milan recording a first-leg win on Wednesday night as they look to add a sixth Coppa Italia title to their already impressive trophy room.
The Rossoneri are also likely to be looking for revenge following their 1-0 defeat at the hands of Delio Rossi’s side earlier this year. Away fans confident of replicating that performance can back the Eagles to win 1-0 at 6/1, which means a successful £10 stake would return £70.
Milan have managed to score the majority of their goals in the last 15 minutes of their matches so far this season, a record only bettered by second-placed Napoli.
The attacking capabilities available to Massimiliano Allegri’s side mean that betting on Milan to score more goals in the second half of the game than the first could prove a profitable venture. A £10 bet on bwin at odds of 13/10 would return £23.
Goals are likely to be in plentiful supply in the match – their last five meetings have produced 14 in total – while just 11 of Palermo’s 33 fixtures so far this season have finished with less than three goals.
Coppa Italia betting fans might be tempted to back the teams to score a total of three goals in the match, with bwin offering odds of 31/10, which would see a successful £10 stake return £41.
A winning bet on Milan to beat Palermo 2-1 would see punters collect £145. New customers can register here to claim a free £25 bet.
