Milan vs Rijeka
UEFA Europa League
Date: 28th September 2017
Kick off at 20:05 UK/ 21:05 CET
Venue: Stadio San Siro.
Rijeka were brutally punished for their mistakes at the center of the court in the first match against AEK Athens (1-2 loss on the home pitch).
The Croatian champions will certainly have no room for any errors this Thursday when they travel to legendary San Siro to take on the Italian giants Milan in the second round of the competition.
Rossoneri confirmed their Europa League ambitions with the brutal 1-5 victory over Austria Vienna ion the opening round two weeks ago.
However, the atmosphere in the dressing room has been slightly broken with a disappointing display in the 2-0 loss to Sampdoria at the weekend.
The visitors won’t come into the game in higher spirits either following a slip up they’ve had on Saturday when they only drew 1-1 with Slaven Koprivnica.
Matjaz Kek and his men are still four points behind Dinamo Zagreb at the top of the 1- HNL standings.
Milan vs Rijeka: Head to head
Rijeka will have the honour of playing Milan for the first time in their history.
Milan vs Rijeka: Prediction
The gulf in quality between the two teams is huge and Rijeka are actually a perfect opponent for Milan to bounce back after the mentioned defeat to Sampdoria in Serie A.
We expect yet another super strong attacking display from the hosts and the visitors will be lucky to avoid a disaster here.
The man worth backing as an anytime goalscorer is certainly Andre Silva who already has five goals to his name in Europa League.
Milan vs Rijeka: Bets
The first pick will be Milan -1.5 handicap at the odds of 3/5 @ 888 Sport.
The alternative option would be Andre Silva to score anytime at 20/21 @ 888 Sport.
