AC Milan vs SPAL 2013 Match Prediction

By William Hall

SPAL face the unenviable task of traveling to AC Milan on a short week on Wednesday night as part of match day five in Serie A. SPAL have lost two straight matches, most recently at home to Cagliari 0-2 on Sunday. Meanwhile, AC Milan got a 2-1 win at the San Siro over Udinese on Sunday. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Tips and Predictions

SPAL and AC Milan will meet for this first time in this match, so there is no previous history to look back on. The only comparable side that SPAL have faced this season is Inter Milan, and we really don't know where they are in relation to AC Milan as of yet. However, you have to like AC Milan's chances at home in the San Siro, where SPAL have already lost, due to the strength of their squad and the fact that they have three strikers in form along with attacking midfielder Suso.

AC Milan Preview

After losing 4-1 away to Lazio two weekends back, AC Milan have done well to recover and win their two matches since. They defeated Austria Vienna away 1-5 in the Europa League group before winning at home to Udinese 2-1 on Sunday. It was far from a classic performance- once again- from them, but in the end the three points are all that will count. Nikola Kalinic opened his Serie A Milan account in the match in giving his side a lead after 22nd minutes. But Kevin Lasagna made the affair a tasty one again as he leveled for the visitors in the 28th minute. Kalinic, though, has plans of securing the starting role for himself at Milan, and he went a long way to doing just that when he grabbed his second after just 31 minutes. Milan dominated the match, controlling the ball and the tempo, taking a lot of shots at goal, and ultimately allowing just one shot on target. It'll be annoying that that one shot went in, but that is often the case at this level of the game when you have a bigger side hosting a smaller side that finds a breakthrough. The two wins will do little to breed confidence in people outside of Milan, though, especially due to the fact that they were hammered the one time they have played a quality team this year. We don't yet have proof that Milan will be able to handle pressure, so this early season good run could be all a false dawn. With his brace, Kalinic is now tied with Suso and Patrick Cutrone on two league goals. Suso also leads the team with two assists thus far.

AC Milan Team News

Right back Andrea Conti remains out injured for AC Milan here. Goalkeeper Gabriel continues to serve a suspension, so he will also miss out on the action.

SPAL 2013 Preview

SPAL will come into this game with four points from four matches. If you had offered that to them ahead of the season after four matches, I bet that they would have happily bit your hand off and ran away laughing from excitement such is the feel-good factor. That has transpired as it is, but it has been totally front loaded. They got that big point away to Lazio and clung on for three against Udinese, but since then they have struggled and are starting to show signs that they will have a lot of trouble staying afloat come the end of the season. Much to their luck is the fact that Benevento is in the league, as they appear to be dead-set on going toward relegation. SPAL lost their match after the international break against Inter Milan at the San Siro 2-0. They played fairly well that day, but it did not help them on Sunday as they fell by the same score at home to Cagliari. They would very much have hoped for at least a point from the match as they would have thought that their visitors were a side that aren't all that much better than them. However, it was not meant to be as Nicolo Barella's 17th minute goal and Joao Pedro's goal in the 68th minute paced them out ahead. Possession was equal throughout, and SPAL actually edged them on shots, but they just could not beat the goalkeeper despite putting five shots on frame. SPAL have three goals scored, each scored by a different man, and they will hope that Marco Boriello, a veteran of many bigger Serie A sides, will kick on soon to add to his one goal so far.

SPAL 2013 Team News

Goalkeeper Alex Meret continues to be out, but will return in October. Also out until the middle of that month is forward Sergio Floccari. Center back Fabio Giovanna and center midfielder Luca Rizzo also are set to be out with injuries.
