Milan have negotiated a tricky two weeks quite nicely, picking up six points aginast Inter and Fior when they could quite easily have slipped up, allowing the eager Napoli to close them down.
As it is, they maintain a three point lead in Serie A and should have at least that come the end of the weekend, being that they are just 1/3 (William Hill) to send Sampdoria off with nothing to show.
Sampdoria, 12/1 with Stan James, are sliding towards relegation as they are just one point above the drop with just one win in thirteen attempts.
Sampdoria have not scored in eight away games so an AC Milan clean sheet is surely on at 4/5 (Totesport) but to squeeze a bit more value, combine it with a win and a clean sheet, an even money shot with Coral. Stan James make 3-0 an 8/1 shot and 4-0 11/1. Pato is in some form at the moment, he is 10/11 to net anytime with bet365.
