Venezia vs AC Milan – Free Betting Tips & Predictions
Milan beat Venezia 2-0 back in September and the Rossoneri look primed for more success against the same opponents this weekend. Find our top three predictions for the fixture below.
AC Milan to Win
AC Milan need every point they can gather to keep pace with Serie A leaders and city rivals Inter at the summit of the table and we’re tipping the Rossoneri to put three more on the board at Venezia’s expense. Milan have been reliable performers on the road this term, losing just once in ten away assignments so far while winning 70% of their remaining fixtures. No club has scored more often on their travels than Stefano Piolo’s charges and Milan’s firepower should get them over the line again.
Both Teams to Score
Venezia have found victories hard to come by at home this season, though they have at least retained some threat in the final third. Indeed, Paolo Zanetti’s side have scored in all but one of their fixtures at the Stadio Pierluigi Penzo this term, with BTTS landing in a further seven of the same nine matches. Both teams to score was also a winning bet in eight of Milan’s last nine away tussles in the division and a stake in the same market could be worth considering again on Sunday.

Venezia predicted lineup
Venezia will be without suspended duo Mattia Caldara and Tanner Tessmann this weekend, though new signing Michael Cuisance could make the matchday squad for the first time. Venezia's fixture at Salernitana on Thursday was postponed due to a COVID-19 outbreak in their opponent’s squad and The Winged Lions will hope to take advantage of the extra rest this weekend.
Venezia predicted lineup: Romero – Mazzocchi, Modolo, Ceccaroni, Ebuehi – Crnigoj, Vacca, Busio – Aramu, Henry, Johnsen
AC Milan predicted lineup
Veteran keeper Ciprian Tatarusanu, defender Simon Kjaer and attacker Pietro Pellegri are all out injured for Milan, while trio Ismael Bennacer, Franck Kessie and Ballo Traore all all involved in AFCON. Milan didn't need any of those absentees to record a roaring 3-1 victory over Roma on Thursday evening, however. Olivier Giroud, Junio Messias and Rafael Leao did the damage for the hosts against Jose Mourinho's men.
AC Milan predicted lineup: Maignan – Florenzi, Kalulu, Gabbia, Hernandez – Tonali, Krunic, Junior Messias, Brahim Diaz, Saelemaekers – Giroud
