Betting tip Serie A: Sampdoria Genua - AC Mailand

Difficult task for Milan
Just like last season Ac Milan hasn’t picked up speed yet in the 2016/2017 season. This Friday they have to play in Genoa against currently fifth ranked Sampdoria which will be a very difficult task. Kick-off is September 16 at 8.45 PM.
Current form Sampdoria Genoa
No signs of the problems that their opponent has in Genoa. Just the opposite is the case. While Milan has five teams behind them in the ranking, the “Samp” only have four clubs in front of them. They have especially been successful in front of their home crowd so far. They won the cup game against Bassano Virtus (3:0) and the first home game of the Serie A season against Atalanta Bergamo 2:1. They also proved that they can win away, after all they beat FC Empoli 1:0 in their season opener. Genoa almost managed a sensation against top club AS Roma last weekend. In the end it was a last minute 2:3 loss in Rome, after Genoa was able to turn an early deficit around. So their self-confidence should have been boosted despite the loss. Marco Giampaolo’s team showed that they can compete with any team in the league. Additionally the pressure of scoring goals is divided onto different shoulders. Both strikers Muriel and Quagliarella have scored two goals so far.
Current form AC Milan
Vincenco Montella, who only took over as coach in June, already is under pressure to succeed. The first rounds of the Serie A didn’t go as management hoped for. The season opener still was okay with a 3:2 win over FC Turin. But that win was followed by losses to SSC Napoli (2:4) and Udinese Calcio (0:1). Milan only received the goal against Udinese in minute 88. While in the first two games defense was the bigger problem, now the lack of offensive power seems troublesome. Especially against Udinese Milan didn’t show penetrating power on offense. They only shot at the goal once in 90 minutes and that at home. This year’s top scorer for Milan Carlos Bacca, who scored three goals so far, wasn’t able to score either in that game. It was obvious against Udinese that Milan is extremely dependent on the goals of the Colombian. This season only one other player managed to score a goal for AC Milan. It will be interesting to see, whether that will change against Sampdoria.
If AC Milan plays as harmless as they did against Udinese, they will very likely lose again. Sampdoria can enter the game with self-confidence after two wins in three games. We believe that it’s going to be a close game in which Milan will be able to steal a point. Our recommendation: Tip X.
