Milan have bounced back from two back-to-back defeats. The team has scored seven goals in their last three games. Genoa have scored five in five but have just one win to their name.

We predict the hosts will take three points from the game on account of better form. However, they have struggled at home which could be a potential cause for concern.

Prediction: AC Milan 2-1 Genoa.
