SPAL vs AC Milan / Serie A – This match of the last round is important only for the visiting team, while the host has peace of mind being positioned in the middle of the table. Milan still hopes to reach the Champions League and needs victory, with some results coming into place. SPAL has left behind all worries and didn’t cost them much to lose in two previous rounds. Milan has three-game winning streak, and it won their match played in the first part of season by 2-1.
SPAL vs AC Milan begins 26.05.2019 at 20:30 CET
SPAL spent a larger part of the season in the bottom half of the table, but we cannot say there were too many oscillations in their performances and that they were vulnerable in terms of survival. The lowest position they had occupied was the 16th, and they never went down to the drop zone. SPAL had a very good period when they lost only once in eight rounds, to Cagliari away, won even six times, and drew only with Genoa at home. In that period SPAL won even untouchable Juventus, as well as Roma and Lazio, all at home.
They also won Atalanta in front of their fans, and only Napoli and Inter can boast with victory in Ferrara. By that it is clear that SPAL wants to say goodbye to its fans with victory over Milan. They didn’t play well in two previous rounds when they lost Napoli and Udinese in the previous round. Felipe and Missiroli are out of action from before due to injuries.
Probable lineups SPAL: Gomis – Cionek, Vicari, Bonifazi – Lazzari, Valoti, Murgia, Kurtic, Fares – Petagna, Floccari
This is a very important match for Milan although it can happen very easily that decides about absolutely nothing. Milan occupies the fifth place in the table and has secured a place for itself in the Europa League, but it could go down to the sixth place if it fails in this match. The objective is at least the fourth place and two teams that have by one point more are within their reach. This means that Milan doesn’t decide alone about its own fate. Fact that Atalanta and Inter play at home is not a good sign and if they both win Milan won’t qualify for the Champions League, just like in case if the Rossoneri lose this away match.
There are several other variants in which they can still end up at the fourth place and therefore their priority is to try to win. At teh first glance it shouldn’t be too difficult since the home team has no imperative, however, many teams burned their fingers at this away match, and Milan itself also struggled with SPAL at home. Fact that they have three-game winning streak is encouraging, which means they are in good shape. After Bologna and Fiorentina they won Frosinone 2-0 in the previous round, but we must bear in mind that goalkeeper Donnarumma defended a penalty when the result read 0-0. Besides players who are from before out of action due to injury, Paqueta cannot now play since he is suspended.
Probable lineups AC Milan: G. Donnarumma – Abate, Musacchio, Romagnoli, R. Rodriguez – Kessie, Bakayoko, Calhanoglu – Suso, Piatek, Borini
SPAL vs AC Milan PICK
