Atlético Madrid vs Ac Milan: Predictions, odds & betting tips

A lot is at stake when Aletico Madrid take on AC Milan on Wednesday.

Atletico Madrid Vs Ac Milan

The battle for second place in Group B of the Champions League guarantees to make a enthralling watch.

Liverpool earlier wrapped up top spot in the group with two games to spare, and with Atleti a point behind Porto in second and Milan bottom of the group with just one point on the board.

All three teams in group B apart from Liverpool all have chances of making the round of 16 if results go their way.

FC Porto will be travelling to Anfield to face a free scoring Liverpool side while Atlético de Madrid will host AC Milan on the fifth match day on Wednesday.

The Rossoneri are four points behind Porto who are in second and only a win away to Atlético de Madrid will give them a chance of qualifying on the last day if Porto do not win away at Liverpool.

Furthermore, It has been a series of contrasting returns on the domestic front and International scene for the Rossoneri as they had been indomitable prior to their (4-3) loss to Fiorentina this past weekend.

They are joint leaders in the Serie A and are second only to Napoli due to goal difference with both teams on same points.

Pioli's men have amassed one point so far in the most prestigious club competition in the world and having already lost the first leg at San Siro to the Colchoneros at the end of a crazy game that saw Atlético score 2 goals in the last 10 minutes to earn a (2-1) win.

They would be out for revenge in Madrid. On the other hand, Atlético Madrid would be hoping to build on their win against Osasuna this past weekend.

Moreover, having won just three games from their last eight games in all competitions. It's clear they have indeed struggled for momentum and have also lost their defensive resilience under Diego simeone.

Both sides have have largely underperformed in this year's tournament and we predict it will be a tense night for both teams but the Colchoneros are always tough formidable opponents anytime and with home advantage this time we see them securing an all important result that will see them in a good position for a top two finish ahead of the Rossoneri
