Our football match prediction:
Thanks to Carlos Bacca’s goal from the penalty spot Milan recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Sassuolo in their last league fixture. The Rossoneri are eyeing their third consecutive win in the Serie A, but Saturday’s football match against Chievo will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. Anyhow, Milan aim to move a little closer to the Europa League berth and, no doubt, they will adopt an attack-minded approach in the Stadio San Siro clash. The Mussi Volanti did well to bounce back from a 3-1 loss to Napoli, with the team beating Pescara in Verona at the weekend and they are on the right track to secure the elite division survival. Considering that the mid-table side have little to play for in Saturday’s match against Vincenzo Montella’s troops, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts this time out. Aforementioned attacker Caros Bacca will be the man to watch in the home team.
