Having suffered back-to-back goalless draws, Serie A leaders Milan will be looking to get their title charge back on track when they entertain relegation-threatened Genoa at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza. 

While Milan remains 2 points ahead of city rivals Inter, the Rossoneri knows that the title is no longer in their own hands with Stefano Pioli's side dropping points in 5 of their last 10 league matches including those two nil-nil draws with Bologna and Torino in recent weeks.

Still, with just 6 points separating the top 4 in the division with 6 rounds of fixtures remaining, it remains all to play for in Serie A with all 4 teams showing plenty of vulnerability in recent weeks. 

For the hosts, a lack of goals has been a major issue with just 9 scored in their last 10 matches including only 4 in their last 6 on home soil. As a result, Milan have only won 4 of their last 11 at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza with 3 draws and 3 losses seriously hurting their chances of a first Scudetto in a decade.

Visiting Genoa come into this match fighting for their Serie A futures with the away side currently 3 points short of safety with just 6 games remaining. On their travels, Genoa have been tough to beat, picking up 7 draws from their last 11 on the road including against heavyweight opponents in Atalanta and Roma however Il Grifone have failed to win any of their last 14 away matches since a 3:2 win at Cagliari all the way back in September. 

Like Milan, goals have proved a major issue for Genoa with only 3 scored in their last 9 away matches including just 1 from their last 5 and considering Milan´s recent defensive stoutness, (6 successive clean sheets coming into this fixture) another blank looks likely here.

Indeed, with just 3 goals scored in Milan´s last 4 home matches, and only 3 scored in Genoa´s last 4 away fixtures, another low-scoring contest seems rather likely here and the under 2.5 goal market looks a decent option with Milan somewhat hard to back considering their stuttering form both at home this season and in their most recent performances. 

Final score 1:0
