Wednesday Serie A action from the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, as Milan take on Venezia.

Venezia, currently sitting in seventeenth place, face the formidable task of an away trip to Milan, who currently sit third in the League.

It’s 10 points so far for AC Milan this season, going into this game

Milan will be hoping for a win, following a disappointing 1-1 away draw against Juventus in their last game.

Milan keep finding ways to win, having secured three victories in their last four matches is astonishing this season and they are looking worthy of the aspiration to qualify for Champion’s League football. With 10 points, they are established in third in the League having won three fixtures and drawn one game.

Milan have won two meetings of their two League matches at home this season.

AC Milan will see 13 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

Good atacking and defensive team

Milan’s defence has been rock solid so far, only conceding two goals in their previous games. Milan have a good scoring record this season, with eight netted so far (7 from open play and one penalty). This has been largely down to the key attacking players: Olivier Giroud (2), Rafael Leao (2), and Sandro Tonali (1).

Milan’s ever growing list of players missing due to injury or illness to be a concern for Stefano Pioli, ahead of this Wednesday’s fixture against their opponents.

This season’s Serie A campaign, has so far seen Venezia achieve three points

Returning to match-winning form, following a defeat is always a tough challenge, but that is what Venezia need now, after their loss to Spezia Calcio at Stadio Pierluigi Penzo.

Paolo Zanetti knows that a run of three losses in four matches for his Venezia side, is going to be a tough run of form to change. However that is exactly what he must try to deliver. With three points, they currently sit seventeenth in the League having won one game and lost three meetings.

Playing away from home, Venezia have won one game and lost two games.

A win in this fixture, would take Venezia’s points from 3 to 6, so far this season.

Venezia may have to resort to second choice players, given the number of first choice players that are now unavailable through injury, illness or suspension.

AC Milan v Venezia – Head-to-Heads.

Milan and Venezia have faced each other six times in the past, with the balance of wins sitting in Milan’s favour (4 – 1). Additionally, Milan remain unbeaten in their last three meetings played at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza against Venezia. The last time both teams met in this competition was February 2002 and the score line ended up with a 1-4 away win for AC Milan. The likelihood of both sides getting on the scoresheet again in the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza is rated at 54.05%.

Its an 80.0 percent win probability for Milan in this game.
