AC Milan welcome Cagliari to the Giuseppe Meazza on Sunday, hoping for another three points as they battle for this season’s Scudetto. The visitors are placed comfortably in mid-table but have failed to win in six league games.
The Milanese outfit are managed by former Calgliari boss Massimilano Allegri, who faces a selection headache caused by injuries to several players.
Christian Abbiati, Mathieu Flamini, Mario Yepes, Alberto Aquilani, Gennaro Gattuso, Kevin-Prince Boateng, Alexandre Pato and Antonio Cassano are all absent this weekend but Milan will remain confident.
Milan have kept clean sheets in four of their last six home fixtures.
The Rossoneri have been victorious in the five previous meetings between the two sides, the last encounter finishing 2-0 to Milan in December 2011.
Odds on a repeat of this result are available at 9/2 and if you fancy Milan to lead at half-time and full-time as they did in December, then you can back them at 4/5.
They also won both halves that day and they are priced at 17/10 to do so again this evening.
Further evidence pointing towards a Milan win is provided by the fact that the home side have not lost to Cagliari at the San Siro since June 1997.
Milan have also kept clean sheets in four of their last six home fixtures.
Cagliari have so far scored just 16 goals, the second-lowest tally in the league, so back Milan to repeat their clean sheet heroics on Sunday with a win to nil at 87/100.

Sardinia-based Cagliari boast an impressive defensive record however, conceding 18 goals in the league, just one more than Milan themselves.
Their highlight of the season was an impressive 1-1 draw away to leaders Juventus and you can back them to grab a point on Sunday at 4/1.
The Rossoblu have a better record away from home, with three of their five wins coming on the road and a win for Cagliari is priced at 9/1.
But since losing to city rivals Inter earlier this month, Milan have bounced back well with wins in the league and cup and you would expect no less than a home victory against Cagliari at 3/10.
They have found inspiration in striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has scored ten goals in his last 12 Serie A matches and is currently joint-top scorer in the league with 14, level with Udinese’s Antonio Di Natale.
You should therefore look no further than Ibrahimovic for the first goal on Sunday.
At odds of 9/4, successfully backing Ibra to score the opener would see punters win £81.25.
