Place: Stadio San Siro. Milan.
Date: on the 04th of October, 2018 (Thursday)
Match start: 17:55 (GMT+1)
Tournament: Europa League.
In group F in the first round only one goal has been scored and it was scored by player from Milan. Direct shot of Higuain into the net of Dudelange (1:0) has saved Gattuso’s team from losing the scores in a game with the team from Luxembourg.
After these Rossoneri have twice tied the matches and have ruined Sassuolo (4:1) in frames of the championship of Italy. But two last matches took place without participation of Gonzalo who having scored tp Atalanta (2:2), was injured. Terms of recovery of the football player don’t allow him to participate in the match of the Europa League but everything is possible.
The match in Luxembourg became the first official match out of seven in the current season in which Milan has not missed any goal. Defense and Gianluigi Donnarumma don’t impress the fans. But the attack which is rather stable really helps the team.
Greeks in a match with Betis (0:0) in the first round were left shorthanded therefore practically the whole second half was spent very carefully.
At the weekend the team has spoiled the mood and situation in the national championship, having lost on home arena to PAOK (0:1). Other participant of the Europa League, thus, has headed the table. Olympiacos has taken the fifth line as the density in the Super League Ellada is high.
Pedro Martins before the visit to Italy has no squad problems and disqualifications. All his football players are ready to fight with the leader of the group. Of course, Yaya Touré who is still injured would help. But the former midfielder of Manchester City hasn’t managed to become an irreplaceable player in Piraeus as he was practically immediately injured.
In 2014 the teams have met in frames of the International Champions Cup and Greece has destroyed the rivals with the score 3:0.
Bookmaker coefficients on the match Milan vs. Olympiacos
Milan to win – 1.45
Draw – 4.40
Olympiacos – 7.75.
In this match it is necessary to pay attention to high coefficients in favor of the team from Greece. Yes, Martins’s team didn’t play well at the weekend. But in attack they continue to show very complete and productive game. With current problems of Gattuso in defense, this can become serious trouble for the hosts and prevent them to win.
