Real Betis vs AC Milan
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 8th November 2018
Kick-off at 20.00 UK/ 21.00 CET
Venue: Estadio Benito Villamarin, Sevilla.

Real Betis, who plays one of the most beautiful styles of football in Spain, and maybe Europe, takes on former giants AC Milan.

Betis tops Group F with seven points so far from their three matches. They won two games and drew the third game while in the process scoring five goals, and conceding a lone goal.

Milan has registered six points, winning two matches and losing one. They too have scored five goals but conceded an extra two.

Betis comes into the game after a thrilling draw at home, against Celta Vigo. The first half saw just one goal, while the next half rained goals, five. Betis was leading at half-time with a scoreline of 1-0. In the second half, they put one more against the visitors and took the lead to two goals. Then Celta Vigo, known for their fighting spirit, came back with three unanswered goals. Betis, not one to give up, put a final goal behind the Vigo defense, thus making the final scoreline 3-3.

AC Milan will be walking into this match with their heads held high and chests pumped. Against Udinese, on the road, they score a late, late winner, in the 97th minute, to take home the three points with a 0-1 scoreline.

Real Betis vs AC Milan Prediction

The Spanish side has the advantage against the seven-time Champions League winners, in this Europa League group stage match, a sentence I thought I’d never had to utter in my life. Betis has really impressed fans with their exciting quick-passing, lightning-fast counters and high pressing.

AC Milan has lost every single match they have played against Betis so far, even though they had the home advantage. In this year’s Europa campaign too, Milan suffered defeat at the hands of their opponents for this match and would have suffered a shut-out, if Betis players hadn’t become complacent and over-confident in the final seven minutes of the game.

Still, the scoreline read 1-2 in favor of Real Betis.

Expect the hosts to take at the least one point from this fixture. And also expect just one of the teams to get on the scoresheet, most probably Betis.
