The Red and Blacks welcome Empoli to the San Siro on Saturday for this Serie A match. These sides played out one of the games of the season in Serie A when they met in the Stadio Carlo Castellani for the reverse fixture.
Milan ran out 2-4 winners from the six-goal thriller with Franck Kessié the standout performer scoring a brace of goals for I Rossoneri. However, Empoli have been a much more difficult opponent on the road this season, where they have picked up 21 of their 32 points and suffered defeat on only three occasions.
AC Milan come into the match on a run of six league games undefeated. They have picked up 12 points from a maximum of 18 from their last six Serie A matches.
Il Diavolo won their top of the table clash away to SSC Napoli last weekend. Expected goals of 1.3 to 0.4 in favour of AC Milan indicates it was likely a fair result.
Olivier Giroud scored the game’s deciding goal for AC Milan just after halftime. His goal proved enough to secure all three points against Napoli and move Milan two points clear at the top of Serie A. The final score of the match was 0-1.
With Giroud likely to miss the game due to injury, the burden of goals likely falls on Zlatan Ibrahimovic who has eight league goals this season for Milan and is the1.5/1 favourite to get on the scoresheet here.

The Blues last league match, away to Genoa CFC, ended in a dull 0-0 draw. Expected goals of 1.3 to 0.3 in favour of Genoa indicates Empoli were a little fortunate to escape from the game with a point.
The Gli Azzurri fans will be particularly disappointed with the attacking performance. Central defender Sebastiano Luperto had their only shot in the box and it came from a set-piece in the 90th minute of the match and was headed miles over the bar.
Andrea Pinamonti is Empoli’s top scorer with nine goals in Serie A this season and is 4.33/1 to score against AC Milan on Saturday.
