AC Milan vs Genoa Prediction: Coppa Italia Match on 13.01.2022
The round of 16 in the Coppa Italia takes place this week, with AC Milan looking to get through to the next round. The hosts are already looking likely to put down a title challenge this season, which means that they are chasing an unlikely domestic double this season.
Coppa Italia Preview
It has been a long time since AC Milan last got their hands on the Coppa Italia trophy, but they could see this as their best opportunity to end that wait. Milan last won the famous domestic honour in the 2002-03 season, and have gone over ten years without winning a domestic trophy in Italy.
There are clearly signs that the good times could be about to come back to the San Siro this season, as they are flying high in the Italian top-flight. Milan are just a point behind Inter in the league standings at this stage of the season, and have won their last three games in the competition.
Milan enter the Coppa Italia at this stage of the competition, and will be looking to reach the quarterfinals of the competition with a victory against Genoa on Thursday night.
Genoa have been able to put their disappointing league form behind them in the Coppa Italia so far this season. In Serie A, Genoa have won just one game all season, and are currently down in 19th place in the standings, five points from safety after playing 21 games.
However, they have recorded more wins in the Coppa Italia already this season than they have in Serie A. Genoa have needed to make it through two previous rounds to get to this stage of the competition. They beat Perugia 3-2 in the first round of the competition in the middle of August, before seeing off Salernitana in an all Serie A tie in the middle of December.
AC Milan vs Genoa Head to Head
AC Milan have won the last two fixtures that they have played against Genoa. The most recent of their wins came in the league in December, as they beat their Coppa Italia rivals 3-0. Genoa last picked up a win against Milan at the San Siro in March 2020, winning 2-1.
AC Milan vs Genoa Prediction
Genoa have saved their best form for this competition this season, but this is a huge challenge for them to overcome. We can’t see anything other than Milan getting the win that they need to make it through to the quarterfinals of the competition this season.
