Serie A: AC Milan vs Hellas Verona live stream
AC Milan will be playing at San Siro for the third time in a span of eight days as they aim to secure their first victory since the international break. They will face Hellas Verona at home in a Serie A match on Saturday at 1:00pm. After suffering a heavy defeat in the Derby della Madonnina last week and drawing in the Champions League midweek, Milan will now face a Verona team that has only lost once this season.
Milan’s Champions League match against Newcastle United ended in a goalless draw despite Milan’s dominance in shots and numerous close attempts to score. In their previous match against Inter, Milan suffered a heavy defeat, losing 5-1 and ending their perfect record for the season. However, Milan showed improvement in their match against Newcastle, keeping a clean sheet. Milan will now focus on securing a morale-boosting victory against Verona.
Verona is currently just two points behind Milan in the early Serie A standings. They have a chance of ending their long winless streak against Milan at San Siro, especially if Milan’s momentum has been disrupted by recent results. Verona has had a strong start to the season, earning seven points so far, which is their second-best start in the Serie A this century.
Under Marco Baroni’s leadership, they have defeated Empoli and Roma, and after a 3-1 loss to Sassuolo before the international break, they managed to hold Bologna to a goalless draw on Monday. Baroni’s emphasis on defensive discipline has paid off, as only Inter has conceded fewer goals than Verona in the first half of games, and only two teams have allowed fewer goals overall.
Milan has never lost a Serie A home match against Verona. They have won 18 times and drawn 13 times in the past. Furthermore, in their last five league games against Verona, Milan has emerged victorious, scoring at least two goals in each match.
Milan, with a strong track record, have the potential to recover from a challenging week and secure their fourth victory out of five Serie A matches this season. Verona, although they have exceeded expectations in the beginning of the 2023-24 season, still face the same limitations as last year. Additionally, it is worth noting that Verona has never defeated Milan in a top-tier match at San Siro.
