Milan Betting Tips
The 2017/2018 season of Milan is proof of how a classic is a differentiated game. The red-blacks were plunging in the classification of the Italian Championship and without having any improvement after the dismissal of coach Vicenzo Montella. That phase was buried on December 27 when the team was in the goalless draw against Internazionale in regular time and with a win over 1 to 0 overtime eliminated the team from the Italian Cup.
Since then, no more lost. There were ten matches in total, with six wins and four draws. The success of number six was recorded on Sunday, February 18. Also in Milan, they overcame Sampdoria 1-0 to reach the mark of three matches without conceding a goal.
The clash was what is commonly referred to as a “six-point game”, as Samp closes in the sixth place the European championship block in the 2018/2019 season. Milan, seventh place, managed to match the rival in number of points. He just did not win the position because, despite the 41 points (12 wins, five draws and eight losses), he loses in the balance of goals (11 to 5).
The big advantage in the first leg and the possibility of higher flights in the Italian Championship should make the coach Gennaro Gatuso put a mixed team or even reserve in the field on Thursday. After all, the club will play a series of three classics (Rome and Inter for the Italian Championship and Lazio for the Italian Cup). Thus, it could preserve the athletes it considers most important for this sequence.
For this, almost all the cast is available. They are in the infirmary only reserve keeper Marco Storari (still without performances in season 2017/2018 of the Italian Championship) and the defender Andrea Conti (two games, without goal).
Ludogorets Betting Tips
The match against Milan was the first official game of the Ludogorets in 2018. The Bulgarian Championship was paralyzed at the end of December and resumed only last Sunday 18 February.
The Ludogorets took advantage of the restart of the competition to show power of reaction. In their dominions, thrashed Slavia Sofia by 4 to 1. Thus, after the dispute of the round of number 21, retained in the lead. He has 51 points (16 wins, three draws and two losses). One more than CSKA, second place.
Our prediction for Prediction for Milan – Ludogorets
The first leg of the second phase of the Europa League 2017/2018 was the first involving the teams.
It is difficult to imagine that Ludogorets will be able to promote a turn of this size in front of a team like Milan and, even more, in the field of the rival. However, the possibility that the Italian red-blacks will work with an entirely reserve team opens the opportunity for a risky guess in the success of the Bulgarian team. In Bet365, this would yield 6.50 for each real invested. Draw paid 4.50 and Milanese success presents prize of 1.44. Quotes were in effect at 14:54 on 2/19/2018.
