Having blitzed past Sampdoria in midweek, AC Milan look to finish the Serie A campaign with a similar flourish this weekend.

They will finish sixth – regardless of Saturday's result – against mid-table Cagliari, who stunned champions Juventus earlier this week themselves.

After an inconsistent spell of results, can they earn a top-half finish by beating two of the division's top sides in a four-day span? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Milan vs Cagliari Betting Tips

Roma's gritty 3-2 away win over Torino means Milan can no longer pip them for fifth place – and a guaranteed Europa League group stage berth.

However, their impressive midweek victory also means they've secured a top-six spot above Napoli, poised for their worst league finish since 2008-09.

Provided results go their way this weekend, Cagliari can shoot up to a respectable tenth-placed finish on 48 points. It's unlikely but remains a possibility for Walter Zenga's side after a brave 2-0 win over Juventus on July 29.

First-half goals from Luca Gagliano and Giovanni Simeone sealed all three points, though goalkeeper Alessio Cragno still needed to make a whopping ten saves.

Earning a thoroughly deserved clean sheet for his efforts, the 26-year-old will expect a busy evening against Milan, who've scored 32 goals in eleven games since last month's resumption.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic netted a brace and created another during their 4-1 win over Sampdoria and the 38-year-old continues defying odds in the final third.

He and fellow goalscorer Hakan Calhanoglu have both been regularly impactful to devastating effect since play resumed.

Milan vs Cagliari Correct Score Predictions

Milan are better and although neither side have anything to play for, Stefano Pioli's men find themselves in superior form too. When you consider that and their impressive H2H record against Saturday's visitors, they should win here.

In 18 meetings, the Rossoneri have won 14 – including each of the last two by a five-goal swing. They'll expect to make it three in a row for the first time since 2012.
