With a win in their previous game, (2-1) against Salernitana, Verona will likely be in a positive frame of mind.

Also, the relegation zone is not where Verona want to be at the end of the season, but that is where they are heading, unless they can get out of their losing habit. The Yellow and Blues have lost four of their last four games in the Serie A. With an eighteenth position in the league and 1 wins, 6 losses and 2 draws, they currently have five points in the League having won one game, drawn two games, and lost six meetings.

Verona have won one game and lost three meetings of their four League matches at home this season.

Victory for Hellas Verona would take their points tally to 8 so far this season.

Verona’s ever growing list of players missing due to injury or illness to be a concern for Salvatore Bocchetti, ahead of this Sunday’s fixture against their opponents.

Juventus were beaten 2-0 at Giuseppe Meazza, the last time that Milan played.

Also, Milan keep finding ways to win, having secured six victories in their last nine fixtures is astonishing this season. Now they have 6 matches won, 1 games lost and 2 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in fifth place, with a total of 20 points having won six games, drawn two fixtures, and lost one game.

Playing away from home, Milan have won two matches and drawn two meetings.

AC Milan will have secured 23 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

Good Attacking Performance

Milan have a good scoring record this season, with 18 netted so far (16 from open play and two penalties). This is largely down to the efforts of their stand-out attackers – Olivier Giroud (4), Rafael Leao (4), and Ante Rebic (3). Milan have conceded nine goals.

Milan’s squad will likely be depleted of seven of their key players when they start on Sunday, due to injury or illness.
