AC MILAN VS ATL MADRID PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS
Under coach Stefano Pioli, AC Milan was re-ranked as Serie A runners-up and returned to the Champions League after an eight-year absence. Competing enforcement gradually became the identity, the Rossoneri won with 16 points in hand. Thereby, they are leading the domestic tournament and only have to receive 3 goals and keep a clean sheet in 3 matches. Ibrahimovic’s injury will likely affect work but their defense is still completely reliable.
2 consecutive wins at home with the score of 2-0 against Lazio and Venezia have shown their appearance. In the first match, although Liverpool had to face the highest rating in Group B, AC Milan was not easily subdued. From what shows, home is the big formula of AC Milan with any pre-visit procedures.
Atletico Madrid won La Liga last season but has had a rough start to this season. In 8 matches in all competitions, they only got 4 wins, only 6 goals were conceded, but 9 goals were disappointing. Especially the poor form of Griezmann. Simeone-branded counter-attacking style is still being maintained. However, their attack is clearly declining and has a very stalemate performance. This is clearly shown in the 0-0 draw with Porto in the first round, or most recently, the 0-1 defeat at Alaves’ field in La Liga. Marching to the dangerous place with the last ¾ matches not scoring any goals, coach Simeone’s team can hardly take the risk. Prioritizing safety is essential because just one footfall can lead to unpredictable consequences.
The sure and practical way of playing is the similarity of the two teams. Therefore, an open match will be very unlikely. Their attack, which is not overestimated, is even more scarce in this match. In fact, the last ⅔ matches of each team have no more than 2 goals scored.
Select: Under 2.25 FT.
Although underrated, AC Milan has more than enough confidence with 7 previous Champions League championships. Pioli is very successful in gradually renaming the Rossoneri. They are currently leading Serie A this season. Atletico Madrid has won the Europa League 4 times but has never touched the most prestigious trophy. In addition, their signs of slowing down also make experts afraid of their ability to win.
AC Milan’s home form is extremely impressive with 3 consecutive matches winning and only receiving 1 goal. On the other side of the field, Atletico Madrid’s performance is really worrying. In 4 domestic matches, they only got 1 win, 2 draws and the first defeat against Alaves. 3 points is a luxury for the representative of La Liga. At least 1 draw result for AC Milan will be the result that best reflects the force correlation.
Select: AC Milan FT.
European odds are appreciating Atletico Madrid’s ability to win. This choice has many potential risks with the correlation of forces between the two teams at the moment and the declining performance of Rojiblancos. Similar playing style and caution will easily lead to inconclusive results.
