Our prediction for this Coppa Italia match:
Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris will host Saturday’s football game between Sampdoria and Milan. La Samp have defeated the likes of Viterbese and SPAL on their way to the last 16 of the Coppa Italia, but Milan are likely to pose a much bigger threat for them than their previous rivals. The Genoa-based club, though, have been producing thrilling displays in the Serie A in recent weeks, which is the main reason why we predict that they are capable of making life difficult for the Rossoneri. Genaro Gattuso’s troops, on the other hand, play on three fronts in the 2018/2019 season and seeing that they are unlikely to win Scudetto, we predict that the visitors are going to take Saturday’s clash in Genoa very seriously. Anyhow, considering that Sampdoria are tough to beat at home, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw.

Highlighted Team (AC Milan):
AC Milan are regarded as one of the biggest club in Italy. The Rossoneri compete in the Italian Serie A and they have won 18 domestic trophies. Speaking of the club’s European success, Milan have clinched seven Champions League (European Cup) trophies.
Milan were on the verge of beating Liverpool in the 2005 Champions League final, but the Premier League outfit came from three goals behind and eventually won the prestigious trophy on penalties. The Rossoneri play their home games at Stadio San Siro (80,018), the stadium that was opened in 1926. It is well known that Milan’s bitterest rivals are Inter and there have always been fireworks when the two local rivals face each other in the Derby della Madonnina.
Milan were founded in 1899 by a lace-maker from England named Herbert Kilpin and a businessman Alfred Edwards. Milan’s home kits are red and black and that is why the team’s nickname is Rossoneri (The Red and Blacks).
The likes of Alessandro Costacurta, Paolo Maldini, Franco Baresi, Roberto Donadoni, Dejan Savicevic, Frank Rijkaard, Marco van Basten, Ruud Gullit and Andrea Pirlo are the most famous footballers who have represented the San Siro outfit.
