AC Milan tips for Serie A top three finish
FootyOn outline AC Milan tips for the season, including Serie A top three finish odds, after Vincenzo Montella rallied his Rossoneri troops.
Despite a recent decline in domestic form in Italy’s top-flight, Milan boss Montella believes his side can still secure a European position this season.
The Italian coach witnessed his team suffer a poor league run of late but backed them to bounce back.
“We have to stay calm to continue on this path. We’re on the right track. I think our growth is clear: we dominate matches even against the major teams,” he declared.
“We need to get into Europe and we believe strongly that we can. I believe it.”
AC Milan are therefore a promising 25/1 with bet365 to finish in top three places this campaign. This would see them return to Champions League action next term.
So, read on to find out why our AC Milan tips are worth backing!
Rossoneri ready to battle back
The current campaign started strongly for the Rossoneri under the guidance of Montella.
He galvanised the squad with a new breed of young stars, propelling them towards Serie A stardom.
The likes of anchorman Manuel Locatelli, shot stopper Gianluigi Donnarumma and defender Alessio Romagnoli began brightly.
They look like the next generation of this famous San Siro club. Meanwhile, Everton wideman Gerard Deulofeu looks to make an impression on loan and Carlos Bacca continues his clinical streak.
AC Milan are also benefiting from some ageing stars in the team.
This includes defender Gabriel Paletta, full back Ignazio Abate and central playmaker Riccardo Montolivo.
Montella still the right man for the job
Milan had not beaten Juventus since August 2014 before their earlier win this term domestically. They followed that up with a Supercoppa Italiana fixture coup too.
That success saw them clinch their first piece of silverware since 2011.
Despite needing a penalty shootout to decide the fate of the trophy, they did outplay the Italian champions over 120 minutes.
It’s evident that Montella is capable of being the man to revive Milan’s form and fortunes from their current blip.
Any hope of restoring the Rossoneri to their former greatness will rest on their present problems being short term issues.
Though, it’s clear that Italian icon Montella can end the mediocrity that has engrossed AC Milan in recent seasons.
Therefore, make sure to take up our AC Milan tips by backing them for a top three finish at 25/1 with bet365.
