Milan to have no troubles this season in beating Brescia

| 04.12.2010

It will be widely expected that AC Milan will regain their three-point advantage at the top of the Serie A standings, but history suggests they will not have it all their own way against Brescia.

Lazio’s 3-1 win over Inter in the Friday Serie A game means that only goal difference is keeping Milan at the head of the table, but they are 1/4 to beat Brescia.

Brescia may have only won one of their seven away games this season and scored just four times on their travels, but they have proven in the past that they have the potential to frustrate Milan.

Eight of the last 11 Seria A meetings between the pair have ended in draws and it is 9/2 that it finishes this way again.

Brescia are 11/1 to take maximum points, but a number of factors make this outcome unlikely.

Milan have not been beaten at home by Brescia since 1967, while they have only been beaten once at home in the whole of 2010.

Furthermore, Brescia have not won in their last ten Serie A games and have lost on seven of these occasions.

Meanwhile, a draw looks the most likely outcome in the clash between Catania and Juventus.

The points have been shared in four of the last six meetings between the two, while Juventus are currently in the middle of a ten-game unbeaten league run and Catania have been defeated in just one of their last six games.

Football betting odds of 11/5 are offered that this game finishes in a draw, while Juventus are 6/5 to inflict a first home defeat on Catania in 2010.

Catania are 12/5 to beat Juventus and maintain the longest home unbeaten run in the league.

A £10 bet on Milan beating Brescia 3-1 could lead to a return of £110. New Ladbrokes customers can sign up here for a free £10 bet.
