Current form — Genoa v. AC Milan
Genoa hope to stop the rot
The mood around Genoa is pretty low right now as a win has proven hard to come by in recent weeks. Genoa have been a tad mediocre in their last 3 matches, where a win has failed to come their way. Against Empoli they gained a point in a 2-2 draw, before coming up short against Roma who ran out 2-0 winners. Lately, they managed to steal a point in a 0-0 with Udinese.
AC Milan paddling along.
The mood around AC Milan is pretty low right now as a win has proven hard to come by in recent weeks. AC Milan are a bit back and forth currently, and sadly they are more back than forth. Against Fiorentina they got beaten by a 4-3 score, before winning 0-1 against Atletico Madrid. They were back on loser street last time out, in a 1-3 defeat against Sassuolo.
On the back of the aforementioned results, paired with rather erratic performances by Genoa, siding with AC Milan at odds 1.75 seem the obvious way to go. This looks like a good opportunity to add three points to their tally. Depending on your preferred betting strategy, this price also look well suited for a nice accumulator.

Primary goal getter
Looking at the goalscorer market, it would seem a good idea to side with Domenico Criscito. He is one of the Genoa players, who is showing decent form right now. He managed to find the back of the net 2 times in his most recent outing. Surely, he will want to add more goals against AC Milan.
The visitors will be looking to in-form Zlatan Ibrahimovic to find the net once again, as he has been their main man recently. Zlatan Ibrahimovic netted 4 goals for AC Milan in their latest matches.
