AC Milan travel to Verona on Sunday night, looking to move a step closer to their first Scudetto in 11 seasons.

I Rossoneri might have recently suffered a 3-0 Coppa Italia defeat at the hands of Inter, but Stefano Pioli's men hold the upper hand when it comes to Serie A matters.

Milan are currently unbeaten in 13 league outings, winning their last three, and excitingly boast a two-point gap over their city rivals with three matches remaining.

They should at least maintain that cushion this weekend as they visit a Verona side for which hopes of European qualification now look done and dusted. Seven points behind Lazio in sixth, Igor Tudor's men would need a lot to go their way should they make up the ground.

Here's 90min's preview of this one.

Verona team news

The hosts' lineup shouldn't look too unfamiliar to what we've seen recently, after two wins and a draw in their last three Serie A matches.

The only absentees Tudor must contend with will remain Pawel Dawidowicz and Ivor Pandur, who should both continue their spells on the sidelines.


AC Milan team news

As for Pioli, his squad looks in very good shape; the Milan boss should have a full set of players to pick from.

Ismael Bennacer is set for a return to the starting XI having made a comeback from injury with a brief cameo in his side's 1-0 win over Fiorentina last time out.


Verona vs AC Milan prediction

There's a clear favourite in this one.

While Verona represent a tough test for title hopefuls AC Milan, there exists only one option for I Rossoneri with every passing fixture - to win.

With the title race with Inter at boiling point, Pioli's men simply must come away with three points from every game they play and, with a healthy squad and brilliant form behind them, a victory seems likely this weekend.

Prediction: Verona 1-2 AC Milan
