Rio Ave vs AC Milan –the Portuguese team of Rio Ave will host at home the Italian giants of AC Milan.
The Portuguese formation follows in this discussion after defeating two teams away from home and they will now have their first home match and against Milan.
The Milan giants started this season in great style despite some setbacks, like the coronavirus cases which affected the squad.
Rio Ave reached this knock out round after eliminating Borac Banja Luka by two goals to nil and in the previous knock out round they achieved an historical win against Besiktas in a game that ended tied at one goal a piece after 120 minutes, being decided in the penalty shootout.
Rio Ave didn’t even get off to a good start in the Portuguese league with two draws in two games with only one goal scored and another one conceded. The vilacondenses lost two very important players in this last transfer market as were Nuno Santos and the Iranian striker, Taremi.
AC Milan come to this round after beating the Irish team of Shamrock Rovers by two goals to nil and in the previous round at home they won against the Norwegians of Bodo Glimt by three goals to two.
Milan got two wins in this Italian league, first against Bologna and then against Crotone both by two goals to nil, results that currently put them at the top of the Italian Serie A.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic still recovering from the corona virus should be the big absence in the Milan team for this test in Vila do Conde.

Rio Ave vs AC Milan- Prediction:
Milan is a team with a much larger budget than Rio Ave and with bigger individual references than the vilacondenses. In a decisive match I believe that this difference will be proven and therefore, Milan should go through to the group stage of the Europa League.
