AC Milan’s place in the top four in Serie A is coming under increasing threat, and there will be a desperate need to get back to winning ways on Monday. They will come up against a Salernitana side that has landed just one victory in their last five.
Serie A Preview
The success of last season seems a million miles away for AC Milan at present, as they are staring down the possibility of missing out on a Champions League place this term. The reigning champions currently sit fifth in the standings, but have lost twice in their previous five matches. They could yet end this upcoming weekend back in the top four, but they will need to claim victory and hope one of the sides above them don’t claim maximum points.
Milan was extremely disappointing in their most recent fixture, as they fell to a 2-1 defeat away from home against Fiorentina. They didn’t find a way through against the Fiorentina defence until the 95th minute, and by that point, the game was ultimately already decided. They will need a return to form on Monday in Serie A.
Salernitana will also be desperate for the points in Serie A on Monday, as they sit just above the relegation places after 25 rounds of fixtures. This season, they have picked up just six wins so far, and they come into this fixture having landed a single win in their last five. Over that period, they also suffered three defeats.
Despite that run, they remain seven points clear of the drop zone with 13 games of the season remaining. They also come into this fixture after picking up a hard fought point in their most recent fixture against Sampdoria away from home.
AC Milan vs Salernitana Head to Head
AC Milan has won two of the three matches between these sides in Serie A. The most recent of those came earlier this season, with the champions picking up a 2-1 away win. Salernitana’s only point against Milan was picked up following a 2-2 draw in the 2021-22 season.
AC Milan vs Salernitana Prediction
Milan’s recent form would be a slight concern heading into this fixture. However, we expect them to maintain their strong performances at the San Siro by landing a crucial win on Monday evening. The most likely win could be by a 1-0 scoreline.
