Croatian side Rijeka takes on AC Milan in the UEFA Europa League at home. This is a game that the home side will hope they can get a result out of but they will know that they will need the help of their fans since they will be facing one of the better teams in this competition.
For a club like AC Milan, competing in the UEFA Europa League is almost an insult to them but it appears that it might be the only way in which they can make the Champions League next season. In Italy, AC Milan is way off the top 4 and it looks like they will not be catching them this season so all their hopes of making the Champions League rest on this competition. All in all, this is a really good side that is filled with some very good players and with a club legend as the new manager, maybe AC Milan will finally find the identity that they have been looking for all this time.
On the other side of the coin, Rijeka will be happy with any result as this is an opportunity for the team to get the ticket revenue considering such a big club is visiting. I don’t really see a possibility where Rijeka doesn’t lose this game so I think we should take that into consideration.
As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a good price on the over 3.5 goals. I think that AC Milan will score 4 goals on their own so this seems like a pretty good wager in my opinion. In addition to that, AC Milan -2 is also a good bet considering the price we are getting for it.
