AC MILAN @ 5/6

AC Milan

The current front runners are AC Milan, with Stefano Piolo looking to bring the Scudetto back to the red side of Milan in what would be their first Serie A title since 2011.

The Rossoneri fell well behind their city rivals last season, ending the campaign in second and 12 points behind Inter. They’re in a much better position at the moment though, sitting two points clear at the top of the league with four games to play.

Milan have some tricky and some easier games on paper still to play, starting with what could be a potential banana skin against Fiorentina, who are fighting in the race for the top five.

They then go up against a Verona side that looks comfortable in midtable, before another potentially difficult task against another side fighting it out for a place in Europe, Atalanta. Milan will end the season at home to Sassuolo, who sit in mid-table and have nothing left to play for.

It’s a schedule that could cause problems, but Piolo will be looking to his experienced stars that have won titles in other leagues - such as Olivier Giroud and of course, Zlatan Ibrahimovic - as well as the large number of talented youngsters in the side, to make a difference and get then over the line.

INTER MILAN @ 10/11

Inter Milan

Inter themselves have plenty of experience in keeping calm under pressure and winning the title, after doing it last season. The defending champions have some work to do though if they’re to reclaim their title and make it back-to-back scudetto wins.

Simone Inzaghi’s side have some favourable games to end their season, but after slipping up against Bologna in their last game it just goes to show no game is a guarantee. All four games are against teams in the bottom half of the table, with games against Sampdoria and Empoli who are both battling to avoid relegation.

The Nerazzurri have plenty of talent to be able to win them games that could see them overcome the two-point deficit, such as Lautaro Martinez and Edin Dzeko up-front who have 29 Serie A goals between them this season. Inzaghi will be hoping they can help fire his side to glory.

Outsiders

While it isn’t mathematically impossible, it looks very unlikely that a team outside Milan will get their hands on the title.

Napoli were one of the front runners throughout the campaign but have fallen away in recent months. Despite having a decent-looking run-in which sees them take on the likes of relegation-battling Genoa and Spezia, Luciano Spalletti’s side are still seven points away from Milan and five adrift of Inter. It means that even if they manage to win all of their remaining games, they would still need the Milan sides to drop a lot of points in their final four games, something that is very unlikely to happen.

Juventus are very much in the same boat, sitting just a point below Napoli in fourth. Whilst Juve have some winnable games left to play, it would take a monumental slip up from both Milan sides for the Old Lady to be able to capitalise.
