Stadium: San Siro (Milano)
Milan survived a derby win against Juventus and leveled the scores in the closing stages. Stefano Pioli’s side will now take on Serie A debutants Venezia. Will the Rossoneri have no problem picking up 3 points? There are several options for betting at once.
Milan are confident again
As AC Milan head coach Stefano Pioli said after the Juventus game, “Now, we do not need to wait for a miracle to be successful against strong opponents.” The Rossoneri have become confident as a result of their good results in recent years. Whether in the Champions League game against Liverpool or in the league game with Juventus, Milan, although they did not win, looked good.
In both Liverpool and Turin, the Rossoneri were not deterred by a quick goal. In the Champions League encounter, Milan scored twice before half-time but lost 2-3. They did not concede more in the Serie A derby, waited for their chance, and then won 1-1. A powerful club achieves results even when they are not playing their best. Milan are indeed becoming one.
Venezia are no underdogs in the fight for survival
On the eve of their encounter with AC Milan, the Venetians played two games against equally divided opponents. Paolo Zanetti’s side looked more than up to the mark. First, Venezia outplayed Empoli 2-1 away, and then they kept fighting for the points at home to La Spezia. The Eagles scored the decisive goal in regulation time, 2-1. But Venezia should not despair. With such a performance, especially against direct opponents, the team can think about keeping their place in Serie A for next season. At least the Venetian side can’t be seen as relegation favourites at the moment.
History of head-to-head encounters
The last time the opponents met each other was in 2002, Venezia’s last Serie A season. The San Siro drew 1-1, whereas Milan won 4-1 in Venezia.

The Rossoneri will not be easy in the upcoming game. Venezia have shown themselves in the first rounds as a team ready to compete in Serie A.
