AC Milan visit the Via Del Mare this weekend to prolong their good run of form. A few weeks ago, the Milanese side was blighted by injury and lying close to bottom, after unconvincing displays against Lazio, Napoli and Udinese.
Recently, however, Massimiliano Allegri’s men have bounced back with four wins in five, thanks largely to the rather beatable opposition put in front of them.
Still, Milan learnt last season that leagues are won and lost based on games like these, and bwin is strongly tipping the away side (at 1/2) to triumph once again over lowly Lecce, who have managed only one goal in their last three games and have yet to pick up a point at home.
Were Lecce to stay true to form (and meddle with their central defence, with Stefano Ferrario being replaced by the rather less competent Andrea Esposito), an away win seems to be the most likely outcome, with both 1-0 and 2-0 Rossoneri wins being tipped at 23/4.
With Antonio Cassano in great form and Zlatan Ibrahimovic dragging the team forward, I would keep an eye out for the Rossoneri scoring twice (an eventuality interestingly priced at 23/10) or even three or more times at 39/20.
What are the chances of Lecce upsetting the odds? At 57/10, a home win seems rather unlikely for a team almost better suited to playing away.
Now that Milan have found their form, notably thanks to that great win over Palermo, even a draw (29/10) seems a little out of the home side’s reach. Still, Lecce managed to squeeze a draw out of Milan last season thanks to a Ruben Olivera equaliser, so if the score is still square at half-time (0-0 will fetch 2/1), then the Apulian side might just repeat last week’s score against Genoa and keep the tie goal-less, an interesting punt at 8/1.
Relating to the scoresheet, Cassano grabbed the last goal against Palermo, so who’s to say he won’t repeat himself? At 13/2, the odds are more than appetizing, and remember that he is from Bari, a city involved in a perpetual local feud with Lecce.
Alberto Aquilani has really come into his own over the last few games, and has been darting forwards full of ideas and confidence. Might he snatch a goal as well, as he did against Napoli with an excellent header? He’s quoted at 17/4 to score at any time, which with the free £25 bet bwin offers to any new subscriber would produce £131.25.
