Atletico Madrid – AC Milan Match Preview

  • With these sides sitting below the top two in UEFA Champions League (UCL) Group B, neither is likely to give much away here. An Atlético Madrid win is richly expected, despite the consistent scoring ways of their Serie A opponents, but a defeat would leave Diego Simeone’s outfit vulnerable to UCL elimination with a matchday to spare, depending on events at Anfield.
  • To get a vital win, Atlético will need to muster the same spirit that saw them score two late goals beyond the 80th minute, and win from behind in the reverse H2H against AC Milan. That was their third victory in three H2Hs against the ‘Rossoneri’, all of which saw them win the second half ‘to-nil’.
  • With just one point to their name so far, bottom-placed Milan need a crucial victory to keep their hopes of a top-two finish alive, though a Porto victory away to Liverpool would render any positive result here meaningless. What’s worse is the fact that they make this maiden trip to the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano winless in seven UCL matches (D2, L5).
  • Across those seven failures to win, three of the last five saw them concede first inside the opening ten minutes. That doesn’t bode well and neither does Milan’s form in Spain, where they’ve lost six of their seven previous matches in this competition (D1), conceding three or more goals in four of those defeats.
  • Players to watchYannick Carrasco assisted the winner in Atlético’s most recent victory, while two of his last three UCL goals have been decisive openers. Rafael Leão’s opener in the reverse H2H was enough only to give Milan a half-time lead – including that goal, three of his five strikes this term have come inside the opening 20 minutes.
  • Hot stat: Milan have conceded inside the first 30 minutes in five of their last six UCL away losses versus Spanish opposition.
