A win is crucial here for Atletico before the final round
Atletico might miss a knockout stage qualification for the first time since 2017 if they don’t win their next two matches. As a matter of fact, Atletico lost their last two matches in the UCL to Liverpool, home and away. With Porto in second place a point above the Colchoneros and playing the next game at Anfield, Simeone’s men can clinch the second spot with a win.
In the first match at the San Siro, Atletico registered their only win in the UCL this season. It was down to the Indians’ resilience to win the match that secured them the three points. In fact, Atletico were down by a goal at the pause. However, two goals in the 84th and 97th minutes gave them all three points. Now, Simeone aims for a repeat of that win before traveling to Porto in the final round.
A do or die game for Milan in Madrid
Seven-time European Cup/Champions League winners AC Milan find themselves rock bottom of group B with one point. Moreover, the Rossoneri face elimination from all European competitions if they don’t win this match. Hence, Milan’s only chance is to win both of their remaining matches and hope Porto loses their two matches.
In their last match against Porto, Milan drew 1-1 with Porto, a result that made the Italian side’s hopes almost diminish. Certainly, a cause of concern for coach Stefano Pioli is his defense who conceded four goals in their first Serie A defeat by Fiorentina on Saturday. With that result, Milan conceded at least a goal in eight of their nine away matches this season. In effect, Pioli needs a more reliable defense in Madrid.
Atletico Madrid vs AC Milan Prediction
Because of Milan’s dismal performances this season in the UCL, the bookies are considering the Rossoneri as underdogs paying an attractive 5.70 for an away win. On the other hand, an Atletico win has odds of 1.60 at Vbet.
Additionally, the h2h meetings record is also in Atletico’s favor winning all three past games. As for the goals market, Milan’s seven of their last eight games saw two or more goals. While two or more goals were scored in Atletico’s four of their last five home games.
According to the statistics, there is a 60% chance for over 2.5 goals to be scored in this match. Thus the bookies are favoring an over two goals in this game paying 1.40.
In conclusion, we will back over 2.5 goals in this match since Milan will play to win and for that, we may have an open match.
