AC Milan vs Olympiakos Preview

AC Milan vs Olympiakos

Competition – UEFA Europa League

Stadium – Stadio Giuseppe Meazza

Date: 4th October 2018

Kick-off time – 17:55 GMT

Milan haven’t had the smoothest start to the season this time so they had a lot of critics to silence when they faced Sassuolo at the weekend.

They did that in style when they ended up 4-1 winners, however, they are expected to return to the Champions League next season, and winning the Europa League is an option that they will want to consider seriously.

These two teams are favourites to reach the round of 32 in this group so expect both to take this game seriously.

Milan started their European campaign with a 1-0 win at Dudelange on Matchday 1, and they will be looking to build on that here before they face Real Betis.

Olympiacos eliminated Burnley at the last qualifying round to reach this stage and they started their campaign with a goalless draw against Real Betis to keep this group as one of the low-scoring ones.

With just one goal scored on Matchday one in this group and just three goals scored in Olympiacos’ last four games, the visitors may set up to defend deep in this game.

Milan, however, come into this game off the back of one of their best attacking displays and their fans will hope that the floodgates are open now.

Milan won five of their seven home games and kept 4 clean sheets in this competition last season.
