Rijeka vs AC Milan – Europa League: Rijeka and Milan face off this Thursday in Croatia, on a match of the last round of the Europa League’s group D.
Rijeka occupies the 3rd place of this Group D with 4 points conquered, recording 1 win, 1 draw and 3 losses. Right now, the Croatian side doesn’t have any chance to advance to the next stage,
since they are 3 points behind the 2nd place AEK and the Greek club has the advantage on the tiebreak criteria. I should highlight the fact that on the 5 rounds that Rijeka played this season, all of them finished with 3 or more goals.
Milan is leading this group D with 11 points conquered, getting 3 wins and 2 draws. Whatever the result of this match, nothing will stop the Rossoneri from finishing this group stage in 1st place.
As we know, the Italian club changed their manager recently, with Gattuso’s debut being marked by an unusual goal conceded in the last minute of the match that sealed a draw,
scored by the opposing goalkeeper, against Benevento who didn’t have a single point in the Serie A prior to that match.
Rijeka vs AC Milan – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Both teams are playing for nothing but pride, so we should expect a match without many defensive worries, which might benefit the occurrence of some goals.
On the respective leagues, both Rijeka and Milan score during the first 45 minutes in over 70% of their matches.
On this competition, every match from both teams had goals on the first 45 minutes, except for the 2 matches that AC Milan played against AEK Athens, where there were no goals.
