Sorare Serie A

Sorare Serie A football preview: Spezia vs AC Milan

AC Milan logo

AC Milan are looking to bounce back from a disastrous Champions League semi-final first leg defeat on Wednesday against relegation-threatened Spezia in the pick of this week’s Serie A Sorare fixtures.

Stefano Pioli’s side were comfortably beaten 2-0 and were lucky not to lose by more against rivals Inter Milan but could leapfrog them in the league table if results go in their favour, as they are currently just two points behind their city rivals.

Spezia on the other hand are three points adrift of safety and currently occupy the final relegation spot in Serie A.

The game will be part of Gameweek 371 on Sorare Football, and 101 Great Goals has broken down the key statistical takeaways ahead of the game.

Three Spezia Sorare gems to watch

Salvatore Esposito

Esposito peaked in his scoring earlier in the season, when he went through a hot streak in terms of Sorare scores that saw him pick up 13 scores of 65 and above out of 17 matches, but he has since fallen away. Clearly capable of picking up points, he struggled for games and fitness after that, but has shown signs of getting back to that form that made him such a valuable player earlier in the season. A score of 91 against Sampdoria in GW 365 showed that he is still more than capable and will be a crucial player for Spezia if they want to avoid relegation.

Emmanuel Gyasi

Gyasi has not been a high scorer at any point this season, with an average rating over the last five (L5) games of 41, an L15 score of 38 and L40 of 39. However he scored in GW 368 (it was just his second goal of the season) and will be one of the players Spezia rely on to threaten the goal this week. While he is a very risky selection, he will be one of the key outlets in this game.

Mehdi Bourabia

Bourabia is another player who scored two weeks ago, but unlike Gyasi he is a more regular points scorer this season. Again his numbers aren’t brilliant, but for a relegation-threatened side like Spezia, they don’t have many in-form options. He has one goal and two assists this season, but it is expected that he will see little ball in this game.

Three AC Milan Sorare gems to watch

Rafael Leao

The Portugal winger missed the Champions League game due to injury, and it is unknown whether he will be fit to return in time. He was seen training by himself prior to the game, so there is a decent chance that he could make a quick return having gone off injured against Lazio last week. His presence will be crucial to AC Milan having averaged 55 in his L5 and 52 in the L15 and with 12 goals to his name it is his best return of the season.

Alexis Saelemaekers

If Leao doesn’t make it, Saelemaekers is the man who will be entrusted with replacing him on the left, giving him a huge role in the Milan attack. He has shown that he can contribute effectively in attack, notching scores of 67, 63, 79, 60 and 83 in recent months but that lack of consistency and opportunity due to the excellent of Leao is one of the main reasons for an L5 of 47. If given another start, it is possible he will take advantage of a weaker opponent in Spezia.

Davide Calabria

Calabria was one of many players who had a tough night on Wednesday - the whole defence struggled with none of them scoring better than 45 - but he has been a reliable outlet for AC Milan all season. He has one goal and three assists to his name this year, and if it were not for his two most recent outings, his L5 would be much higher than 49. Before that, scores of 84, 71, 74, 72 and 86 marked him out as a regular high scorer.
