Manchester United vs AC Milan: Prediction and Betting Tips
Manchester United to continue their winning form
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his team made all the headlines on Sunday as the Red Devils beat their rivals Manchester City who were unbeaten in 20 matches. This win should give Solskjaer’s team a great confidence boost as they play one of the most strong teams in Europe.
After the win on Sunday, United are now unbeaten in 11 matches in all competitions. In the last round of the Europa League, they eliminated Real Sociedad who are having a very good season in La Liga after a commanding 4-1 aggregate win in both legs.
Playing the first leg at home is always difficult. Solskjaer must make sure that they don’t concede a goal in Old Trafford as that can make their task very tough in the return leg in Milano.
AC Milan in a tough tie
In the last round, Milan qualified on away goals rule after drawing away 2-2 and at home 1-1. In the group stage, the Rossoneri had won Group H with four wins, one draw, and one defeat. They were leading the Serie A for much of the season but are now second to Inter Milan.
In their last match against Red Star Belgrade, Milan were given a scare as the Serbs had a very good game and were close to find a second goal which would have eliminated the Italians. But Coach Pioli’s men absorbed all the pressure and finished the match in a draw.
Coming to Old Trafford will be even tougher as Manchester United are in very good form and they have to defend very well something they haven’t done well in their past six matches as they conceded eight goals in those matches.
- Manchester United have five clean sheets in the last six matches
- Manchester United have scored in three of their last four home matches
- AC Milan have conceded in four of their last five away games and won two
- AC Milan have not lost in their last five Europa League games
Manchester United vs AC Milan Prediction
Both of these teams have ambitions to reach the minimum to the final of the UEFA Europa League but the draw was not in favor of them. It will be a very tough tie for both of them. Looking at their recent form we can see that United have a bit more stable form.
In the Champions League matches Manchester United have had 30% of their matches saw both teams score and in 70% of them they had clean sheets. 60% of Milan’s matches in the Europa League saw both teams score and they had clean sheets in only 20% of them.
We have seen Milan play attacking football all season but will they take the chance and open their defenses against United? On the other hand, United will feel if they can score twice against Manchester City, they shouldn’t have trouble in scoring against Milan.
