Atletico Madrid vs AC Milan Predictions and Betting Tips
Two teams struggling in the UEFA Champions League this season, Atletico Madrid and Milan, go at each other in the Wanda Metropolitano this coming Wednesday with three points up for grabs. Read on for our expert tips and predictions.
Los Rojiblancos were comeback kings when both sides clashed at the San Siro on Matchday two. This 2-1 victory stretched Atletico's winning run against Milan to three games and it is then left to see whether the Rossoneri have enough to break this jinx as well as fight for a place in the UCL knockout rounds.
Now or never for the Rossoneri
Atletico Madrid, through Griezmann and Suarez, claimed all three points at the San Siro back in September. However, having lost to runaway group leaders Liverpool in both continental games since, they're currently in 3rd position with just four points amassed so far. Atletico's form before the international break wasn't the best as we saw them pick up just one win in six games in all competitions. It seems they needed the week break as we saw them pick up a win last weekend against Osasuna- their second in five league matches. A late Luiz Felipe header separated them from Osasuna much to the delight of the Atletico supporters.
Milan's defensive mistakes cost them last time out in a seven goal-thriller against Fiorentina. Having gifted the Florence-based side with two goals, they unsurprisingly lost 4-3 condemning themselves to their first loss of the season. The three goals they netted in the Serie A last weekend is just one shy of what they've managed four UEFA Champions League group stage games which is pretty much a testament of their form in continental football. With just one point on the board for Pioli's troops, they rock bottom in Group B and therefore would need six points from their remaining two games if they're to stand a chance of even finishing in 3rd position.
