Milan face Chievo on Sunday in order to forget their defeat at the hands of Barcelona and reboot their Serie A campaign. Having stuttered in the first few games of the season, the Rossoneri are favourites to come away with all three points against Chievo Verona.
Though the Veronese side are on a three-win streak, and are a mere six points behind third-placed Milan, they have history against them: of the last nine encounters between the two sides, the Rossoneri have won all of them!
Hence, bwin’s experts put little stock in a shock at the San Siro (35/4), with even a draw looking unlikely at 4/1. If anything, we’ll see a game full of goals, as was Milan’s 3-2 defeat to Barca in the Champions League.
As things stand, Massimiliano Allegri’s side are interestingly priced to net twice in the first half, at 18/5.
For those wanting to risk a little more, how about betting on a game with four goals or over at 37/20?
One thing is certain: though they have been consistent this season, Chievo have struggled against big sides, notably against Inter where they were unable to create many decent chances, and eventually fell to a Thiago Motta header.
They are, therefore, 18/25 not to score at all, though it might be cleverer to put some money down on striker Fernando Uribe grabbing the last goal of the game at 14/1. He netted 24 goals for Once Caldas in 2010, and has recently showed he’s still got the magic touch with a fine brace against Modena in the Coppa Italia.
If you believe in Chievo’s offensive prowess, how about punting on a multiple correct score, with a Milan win from 2-1 to 4-1 being offered at a tempting 13/4? Using the free £25 bet bwin offers to new subscribers on this selection could see a profit of £106.26.
Sticking to goalscorers, Alexandre Pato recently played 20 minutes against Fiorentina and might just make a difference here as a sub, considering he’s troubled the scorer three times in his last two encounters against Chievo. He’s 5/1 to net last.
Clarence Seedorf has also managed to put three past the Mussi Volanti since 2007 and is a player who often opens the scoring (think against Cesena this year, or in 2010 against Chievo). He is 12/1 to do so again.
Also, keep an eye out for that Stephan El-Shaarawy, he might be the perfect foil for a tired Zlatan Ibrahimovic and is himself 7/1 to score the last goal of the match.
