Serie A

Invest on these sure analysed soccer tips

Milan will be hoping to maintain the perfect record at the start of the new Serie A campaign on Sunday afternoon when they host Cagliari at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.

Milan successfully passed the first test of the season, beating Sampdoria 0-1 on the road last Monday.

They grabbed an early lead through Brahim Diaz and never gave it up. The new goalkeeper Mike Maignan was one of the main catalysts for the victory.

Gianluigi Donarumma’s replacement had a couple of fabulous saves against Sampodoria’s Manolo Gabbiadini on the occasion.

Maignan will hope to keep another clean sheet here against Cagliari. However, the visitors from Sardinia may give him another serious challenge given their recent form.

Cagliari bagged five goals in two official matches at the start of the season. They saw off Pisa 3-1 in Coppa Italia before playing out a 2-2 draw to Spezia in the Serie A curtain-raiser on Monday.

Nevertheless, it’s Cagliari’s defensive rhythm what should give Milan a massive opportunity for the triumph here.

Leonardo Semplici’s men were way too easy to break down in the first game of the season despite playing the likes of Spezia on the occasion.

Milan’s fans are hoping to see the return of Zlatan Ibrahimovic to the starting lineup here. The Swedish superstar missed the first match through injury.

However, even if he does not start, Olivier Giroud could well exploit these Cagliari’s defensive holes here.

Prediction

For us, the only question is how many goals will end up in Cagliari’s net here. The home win should be an inevitable outcome.

We will try and grab better value by backing the Rossoneri to win by two or more goals difference at the odds of 2.20, while you can also go with Milan’s clean-sheet win at the 2.60 odds.
