Ludogorets vs Milan – Europa League: In one of the several matches taking place this Thursday counting towards the Europa League’s round of 32
The local side Ludogorets and the visiting side AC Milan face off in the city of Razgrad, at the Ludogorets Arena, on a match between two teams that will face off for the first time officially.
The home side comes into this match making an interesting campaign on the group stage of this competition, managing to overcome great teams domestically and that were, theoretically, favourites to advance on that group C.
The team is coming off a winter break on their domestic league, not having played any official match in the last 2 months, playing only friendlies,
which might be one of the aspects that favours or hurts the Bulgarians, who have ended the first half of the season with a loss in the Bulgarian Cup, which led to their elimination.
As for the visitors, they have made a campaign on the group stage well below what they would theoretically be capable of,
especially if we consider that the remaining teams on their group were teams with less quality than the Italians.
Their poor European performance was also one of the causes for Montella’s departure from Milan.
With Gattuso, the team is coming off a globally positive streak of results, not losing in the last two months and coming off a moralizing rout.
Ludogorets vs Milan – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Upon a home side that’s coming off a long break (with the correspondent consequences that are known) and a Milan in good form,
I think that the visitors will at least manage not to lose this match, but due to the weak odds, I’ll go with some confidence on the visitors’ win.
