As they chase their third consecutive top-half finish in the Serie A, Verona will host title hopefuls AC Milan in a must-win match for the away side on May 9, 00:15 IST. European qualification is not yet beyond Igor Tudor’s team, who were lurking in the bottom three sometime this season. Milan need only seven points from their last three matches to clinch the title, giving them little room for error if they are to break their Scudetto duck.

Teams Status

Here is the latest form and team availability news from Verona and AC Milan:

Verona Form and Team News

If Verona go on to seal European qualification, then they would mark one of the greatest footballing comebacks this season. After languishing in the relegation zone earlier in the season, their fortunes have improved since Igor Tudor took over, and they now sit in ninth place. With Giovanni Simeone having a fantastic season, scoring 16 goals, and providing four assists, anything is possible for this Verona team.

With only one loss in their last six Serie A matches, Verona have been impressive, although they need to shake off a recent home slump that has seen them record one win, one loss, and one draw in their last three. Milan are a tough opponent, but Verona have an even record against them in recent times, winning three and losing three of their last six home meetings. At writing time, they do not have any absences to worry about ahead of the weekend.

AC Milan Form and Team News

The Rossoneri remain on course to secure their first Scudetto title in over ten years and need only seven points from their last three matches. With Pioli’s team having to profit from a goalkeeper error to win last time out, they would need to be more clinical in front of goal to stay on their title-winning course.

Milan top the table with 77 points and are unbeaten in their last 13 matches, winning eight and recording five draws. They are yet to lose away since late November, with seven wins and three draws but will be wary of history repeating itself after two of their previous title bids collapsed at Verona. Brazilian Raphael Leao came up with the goods at Fiorentina and will look to inspire his team to a glorious league ending.

Tipster’s Angle

Milan remain unbeaten in 13 matches and have not lost in their last ten away fixtures. They have dug deep to find wins recently and dropped points via two draws in April. Verona have remained competitive at home to AC Milan, with three wins and three losses in their last six. AC Milan are the more desperate of the two sides as they chase a historic title with Inter Milan breathing down their necks. Here are our thoughts on this fixture:

Tip: Draw in Either Half @ 1.58

Verona will not be pushovers, especially at home, so we expect this fixture to end in an even contest in at least one half. With either team likely to approach the match cautiously, a draw in either half is a likely outcome and is available on the Paripesa sportsbook at 1.58 odds.

Tip: AC Milan to Win or Draw @ 1.23

Milan are yet to lose in their last 13 games and have shown enough grit to get over the line in recent weeks. They have not lost in this fixture since 2017 and have not lost away since November. We expect AC Milan to prove history wrong and do just enough to keep their title hopes alive. AC Milan to win or draw is available on the Parimatch sportsbook at 1.23 odds.


Milan will look to avoid a potential banana peel in their Scudetto quest, with Inter Milan lurking. Verona equally have their sights on Europe, making this a highly anticipated clash for this weekend.
