AC Milan vs Palermo Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

AC Milan will look to continue their push for a European place when they welcome Palermo at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza on Sunday afternoon. AC Milan were held to a 1-1 away draw by Pescara at the weekend despite the fact they had an overwhelming 65% ball possession and 26 goalscoring opportunities. Milan’s defender Gabriel Paletta scored an own-goal in the minute 12, but Mario Pasalic levelled the game just before the break. On the contrary, Palermo had a 1-0 lead at halftime last time out against Cagliari thanks to a goal from Giancarlo Gonzalez, but they conceded two goals soon after the break and another one with just two minutes to go. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT.

Betting Predictions and Tips

AC Milan have been incredibly strong on home soil throughout this competitive season, having lost just three of their 16 home fixtures across all competitions. In addition, AC Milan have won their last four meetings with Palermo, scoring at least two goals in each of these. I’m expecting AC Milan to grab all three points in this one, but for a better value, I’m backing them to score at least three goals.

AC Milan Preview

AC Milan have enjoyed a decent run of form over the past two months, but they showed some signs of weakness recently. The Rossoneri were beaten 2-1 by Juventus a month ago but bounced back with a narrow 1-0 home win over Genoa prior to the International break. However, they were unable to follow this up with another win, as they only managed a 1-1 away draw at Pescara at the weekend. However, Milan still sit in a comfortable 7th position in the Serie A table with 54 points under their belts after 30 rounds, just four points off the top five. AC Milan’s performance throughout this Serie A campaign was largely based on their solid defence, as they hold one of the best defensive records in the division with just 33 goals conceded in 30 rounds. Apart from their 2-1 defeat at the hands of Juventus, Milan have only conceded one goal per game over the past two months. Milan can count on their home form ahead of this clash as they have only lost two of their last 14 home fixtures across all competitions, and are currently on a three-game winning streak in the Serie A. Furthermore, the Rossoneri have won three of their last four home meetings with Palermo in the Serie A, scoring at least two goals in each of these.

Palermo Preview

On the contrary, Palermo’s abysmal run of form in the Serie continued last weekend as they lost 1-3 at home at the hands of Cagliari. The Rosanero are currently on a seven-game winless streak in the Serie A, losing six and drawing once in the process. The most worrying fact is that Palermo have conceded at least three goals in six of their last seven league outings. This leaves Palermo only in 19th spot in the Serie A table, already eight points behind safety. The Rosanero have struggled at both ends of the field throughout this Serie A campaign, but their biggest problems have been at the back. They have only conceded 63 goals in 30 rounds, which is the second worst defensive record in the division. At the other end of the field, Palermo have only scored 25 goals in 30 league outings, including ten from their topscorer Ilija Nestorovski. Robin Quaison has also enjoyed a decent Serie A campaign, helping the team with four goals this term. On the road, the Rosanero have only won one of their last ten away league games, and are currently on a six-game winless streak in the Serie A. Head-to-head, Palermo have lost their last four meetings with AC Milan in the Serie A, conceding at least two goals in each of these.
