Our prediction for this Serie A match:
Hellas Verona are not having a season to remember. The Mastini sit in the relegation zone in the Serie A standings ahead of Sunday’s football match against Milan, with the team recording only two wins in the Italian top flight so far this term. Hellas Verona were on the verge of beating SPAL at Stadio Paolo Mazza at the weekend, but the newcomers eventually scored two late goals and picked up one point from the match. Milan desperately needed a win against Bologna on Matchday 16 and they managed to get one. Bonaventura scored a brace in the 2-1 win over the Rossoblu, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay. New coach Genaro Gatusso is on a quest to help Milan book their place in the Champions League, but his men will have to be at their sharpest in the remainder of the season if they are to turn the dream into reality. Anyhow, the Rossoneri are capable of beating the out-of-sorts Verona in the “City of Love”.
Highlighted Player (Daniel Bessa):
Daniel Bessa is a Brazilian midfielder who was born in San Paulo on January 14, 1993. Bessa played for the likes of Coritiba and Atletico-PR during his youth career before joining Inter football school at the age of 15. The Brazilian footballer did not see any game action for the Nerazzurri in the Serie A as he played for the likes of Vicenza, Olhanense, Sparta Rotterdam, Bologna and Como on loan from 2013 to 2016. In the summer of 2016 he moved to Hellas Verona and you should know that he scored eight goals, while providing four assists for his teammates in 41 appearances for the club in the 2016/2017 Serie B campaign. At the end of the season the Mastini secured promotion to the Italian top flight, with the team finishing the process in second place in the standings, four points behind SPAL. Daniel Bessa is a central midfielder, but he is capable of playing as a right winger as well.
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.
