Our prediction for this Serie A match:
After suffering a shocking 3-1 loss to Sassuolo at the weekend, Milan will look to stay in the Scudetto race when they take on Genoa at Stadio Luigi Ferraris on Matchday 15. The Rossoneri suffered a dip in form in the Serie A, but this game could be the turning point for Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Co. Captain Alessio Romagnoli is banned for the match, while all Calabria, Castillejo, Giroud, and Rebic remain in the recovery room.
Ivory Coast international Franck Kessie is widely expected to return to the starting XI. The Rossoblu, on the other hand, did well to hold Udinese to a goalless draw at Dacia Arena, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry against Milan. Since the Rossoneri are desperate to return to winning ways, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on the visitors. All Caicedo, Criscito, Destro, Fares, and Maksimovic are likely to miss the game with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Mattia Perin):
Mattia Perin is an Italian footballer who was born on 10 November, 1992 in Latina, Italy. Perin played for the likes of A.S.D. Pro Cisterna, Pistoiese and Genoa during his youth career and he continued to play for the Rossoblu at senior level. The Italian goalkeeper has been playing for Genoa since 2010, but it has to be noted that he spend some time on loan at Padova and Pescara between 2011 and 2013.

The Italian shot-stopper tore his anterior cruciate ligament on 9 April, 2016 and, as a result, he did not represent Italy at the 2016 European Championship finals in France. Mattia Perin managed to keep eight clean sheets in 25 appearances for Genoa in the 2015/2016 Serie A campaign.
Highlighted Team (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.
