Place: San Siro. Milan.

Match start: 17:55 (GMT+1)
Tournament: EUROPA League
For the first time for ten matches Gennaro Gattuso’s team has lost. And this was made in the most annoying way – during the derby against Inter (0:1) on last seconds.
Donnarumma’s mistake in goal-scoring chance is obvious and it is not the first case in the current season when the odious goalkeeper deprives his native team of points. We think that Mino Raiola will hardly trade now his player with the price tag starting from €150 million though his talent as an agent is well-known.
That fact that Donnarumma is in not in an optimum form is also proved by a six-match series spent by Milan with missed goals. But this fact hasn’t influenced the Europa League achievements of team so far— away victory over Dudelange (1:0) and home victory over Olympiacos (3:1).
Besides Ivan Strinić and Andrea Conti, all players of the Red and Blacks who were injured earlier have recovered. Patrick Cutrone has been playing as a substitute player in five last matches and has scored double in a match against Olympiacos.
The club from Seville prior to the match with Milan had suffered 3 holes in the squad and all of them are important as have affected the football players of the starting lineup.
Without Joaquín, Cristian Tello and Andres Guardado Betis differs from what it was earlier. The match against Valladolid has been lost (0:1) and earlier the match in Madrid against Atletico has ended with the same score.
Only five goals were scored by Verdi Blancos in the first 9 rounds of the championship of Spain. It is the weakest indicator of the La Liga. In the Europa League the team demonstrates better results – the draw in the match against Olympiacos (0:0) and home win over Dudelange (3:0). But an important matter is that in three of five goals in the championship Guardado and Tello who with high probability will miss future game were acting as assistants. Joaquin has scored one goal.
Head-to-head Milan vs Betis
Prior to the beginning of the last season the teams have played a friendly match. André Silva’s goal has got adequate reaction – goals by Ruiz and Sanabria that has brought a victory to Betis (2:1).
Bookmaker coefficients on the match Milan vs Betis
Milan to win – 2.02
Draw – 3.40;
Betis to win – 4.10
We have focused on a weakness of goal-area line Rossoneri but in the forthcoming match the conclusions can be made, up to removal of Gigi. Even if Donnarumma will participate, his motivation to play better than in the last match will be the highest. So weak and besides bloodless attack of the rival will hardly be very productive. The match in general will be not productive as Milan doesn’t always show brilliant results.
