9.9 || webmaster
AC Milan has been struggling to find the perfect form in the last few years. And even though the team had some good games and important wins, the big problem is the consistency. There are many speculations as to what went wrong and how to fix the problems. One thing is for sure though, the transition period will require some patience and smart leadership.
The season start has not been that kind for Milan. They were struggling in the summer friendlies, losing against Bayern (1-0), Benfica (0-1), and Manchester United (2-2 [5-4]). Their only win was against Feronikeli (0-2).
Everybody thought that the problems would fade with the start of Serie A. Milanís first game against Cesena ended with a draw, they lost against Udinese but came out victorious against Brescia. Even though they have a pretty unstable record, it is still the start of the season, and judging by their style of play, the team will improve massively.
With that being said, letís see what are Milanís odds against Verona, what is Veronaís record against Milan, and what is the possible outcome.
