Sassuolo vs AC Milan Prediction: Milan to push Sassuolo towards the drop

 | 13th April |

AC Milan look locked into second place in Serie A, only really playing for pride and to delay rivals Inter lifting the title. The Rossoneri’s focus will mainly be on a make-or-break clash with Roma on Thursday night, meaning rotation is likely on Sunday.

However, the Rossoneri should be confident of dispatching Sassuolo even with changes. The Neroverdi’s stay in Serie A looks like it is coming to an end, as they’ve slipped to 19th after one win in 12.

Milan head into this clash in great form in the league, so look to them to extend their winning run.

Sassuolo vs AC Milan betting tips

  • AC Milan to win @ 4/5 
  • Luka Jovic to score anytime @ 7/4

Team news
Olivier Giroud, Christian Pulisic and Tijjani Reijnders are set to be rested for Milan this weekend, as they look to keep their best players back for Thursday’s trip to Rome.

The visitors have depth to call upon though, unlike Sassuolo. The hosts are sinking like a stone in the league and could struggle with talisman Domenico Berardi set to miss this encounter.

AC Milan to win @ 4/5 

Milan head into the weekend having won five on the spin in the league, which has put them six points clear of third-placed Juventus. With Inter off in the distance 14 points clear of the pack, we look set for a Milan 1-2 finish in Serie A this term.

The Rossoneri have won six of their last seven away trips in the league and that stands them in good stead both for this clash and their visit to Roma. The visitors have averaged 2.13 goals per away game, a record they should build upon against this poor Sassuolo outfit.

The hosts have suffered 18 defeats this term, while they’ve lost 10 of 13 matches against the top eight. The Rossoneri have won six of their last seven visits to the Neroverdi, so back their rotated side to win at a tempting price of 4/5.

The Rossoneri have scored exactly three times in wins at bottom-half teams on five occasions this season. They can rack up more goals, but this Sassuolo side have scored in 80% of their home games. A 3-1 away win appeals at 12/1.

Luka Jovic to score anytime @ 7/4

While Milan are set to leave out some key stars, their depth makes them backable in this trip. Giroud’s spot in attack is likely to be taken by Luka Jokic, who has all the qualities to trouble this Sassuolo backline.

The forward’s game time has been limited in recent weeks, making only one start since netting his last goal in a Europa League clash with Rennes. Jovic has five Serie A goals to his name despite making only six starts and four of those goals have come on the road.

Across all competitions, Jovic has scored in four of Milan’s last six trips despite playing 20 minutes or fewer in four of those games. Back him to make the most of a start against a poor Sassuolo team.
