AC Milan vs Manchester United: Predictions and Betting Tips
AC Milan looking in a strong position
The Rossoneri have been unstable lately as they lost their last match in Serie A at home to Napoli on Sunday. They are now nine points behind current leaders Inter Milan and with a possibility of losing their second place to Juventus as well.
In the Europa League this season, Coach Stefano Pioli’s team won their group with four wins one draw, and one defeat. As the season went by their form declined. The Rossoneri advanced to this stage after two draws with Red Star Belgrade and on away goals rule.
In their first leg match at Old Trafford, Milan were marginally the better side with 51% of possession and 16 goal attempts five of which were on target.
Manchester United with some work to do
The Red Devils are on a 12 match unbeaten run in all competitions. They had a very good spell in midseason when they were leading the Premier League standings and playing in the UEFA Champions League.
But they were eliminated from the UCL even though they had three wins but their last defeat against RB Leipzig saw them finish third in the group. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was very pleased with his team’s performance in the last round of the ECL when they ousted Real Sociedad with a 4-0 aggregate.
The Norwegian coach would love a repeat of their result in Sociedad when United won 4-0. Although in the first leg against Milan United shared the possession with their opponents but they let the Italians have too many opportunities to shoot at goal which resulted in an important away goal for the Italians.
- AC Milan have won one of their last four home games
- AC Milan have scored in two of their last four home matches
- Manchester United have won two of their four away matches in European competitions
- Manchester United have scored at least one goal in four away European competition matches
AC Milan vs Manchester United Prediction
Both of these teams were leading their domestic leagues this season but lost momentum and are now second with a big margin of points. They feel they must win Europa League to salvage their season.
Looking at their stats in European competitions, in Milan’s six matches out of nine, both teams have scored. While in seven of nine matches that Manchester United were involved in Europe this season saw both teams score.
AC Milan may try to sit back and defend their away goal from the first leg but Pioli’s team have conceded in seven of their last eight matches, and The Red Devils have to attack from the beginning to score and advance to the quarter-finals. We predict both teams to score.
