AC Milan will be making their much anticipated return to European football as they head to Romania to take on Romanian side, Universitatea Craiova. This is a knockout game and the first leg of this tie will be away from home for the one time Italian and European champions.
AC Milan have spent a lot of money this summer transfer window and it will be interesting to see how this has impacted the side. It is expected that the Italian side will be playing their strongest side.
As far as Universitatea Craiova is concerned, just playing against a side like AC Milan might just be a big step for this team. This side has great home support and are a good support at home but they are clearly a level below their opposition. A good performance at home is important
AC Milan on the other hand will look to have an easy win and get their season off to a good start. This is a very important season for AC Milan as they have spent a lot of money and they will want to make sure that they get some results from it. I think the defensive unit is looking good and although they are missing a striker at the moment, this team should be more than capable of getting the job done in this game.
I think we can expect AC Milan to win this game with ease and although we are not getting a great price, I think there are still some good bets in this game. AC Milan should score quite a lot and the over 2.5 goals makes sense as a result of that. Furthermore, I think the Italian side will keep a clean sheet so I am also going to suggest both team not to score as a bet.
