AC Milan vs KF Shkendija Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

AC Milan v Shkendija match odds

AC Milan will be looking to book their place in the Europa League group stage when they welcome Shkendija at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza on Thursday night for the first leg of their play-off tie. AC Milan enter the fray on the back of a 1-2 home loss at the hands of Real Betis in a friendly game a week ago, with their consolation goal being scored by Andre Silva from the spot. On the contrary, Shkendija won 2-0 at home over Vardar at the weekend in the opening round of the Macedonian First League thanks to two second-half goals from Armend Alimi and Stenio Junior. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news, match stats match odds and free bets for this game.

AC Milan v Shkendija Betting Predictions and Tips

Shkendija have had an amazing run in the Europa League so far, but it looks as far as they will go because Thursday’s opponents definitely have more quality within their ranks. AC Milan were not very convincing in the previous qualifying round, but they still have enough to grab a victory here. However, Shkendija should be able to find the back of the net in this one as they managed to score at least two goals in six of their last seven games across all competitions. Check out my predictions below. 

Goals predictions: Both teams to score - Yes at 6/4

Match result betting tips: AC Milan to win and Over 3.5 goals at 7/5

 

The bookmakers have this down as a pretty cut and dry game according to the odds. AC Milan are priced at 1/6 to win with Shkendija 16/1 to win. This shows the huge gulf in class the bookmakers feel is present in this match. The bookmakers obviously feel there will be goals in this game as well with over 2.5 goals priced as 8/15. The favourite correct score bet is AC Milan 2-0 which is priced at 9/2.

AC Milan Preview

AC Milan have endured a mixed run of form in pre-season, but they still managed to secure an impressive 0-4 victory over the Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich in the International Champions Cup. Sandwiched in-between their friendly fixtures, AC Milan registered a 3-0 aggregate victory over CS U. Craiova in the Europa League third qualifying round. Milan should be able to feature a strong lineup in this clash despite the fact that they will travel to Crotone this weekend for the opening round of the new Serie A season. Last time out when AC Milan have participated in the Europa League was in 2009 when they were knocked out from the round of 32 due to the away goal rule following a 3-3 aggregate draw against Werder Bremen. The Rossoneri are currently on an eleven-game unbeaten streak in the Europa League since a 4-0 loss at the hands of Borussia Dortmund in the Semi-finals of the Uefa Cup back in 2001/2002 season. On home soil, AC Milan are undefeated in eleven Europa League home games, scoring at least two goals in eight of these. AC Milan had a summer of big spending on players, although only a few of them were able to play in the previous round because they haven’t been registered in time.

AC Milan Team News

Gabriel Paletta and Carlos Bacca are both doubts, but Lucas Biglia is missing through a thigh injury.

KF Shkendija Preview

Shkendija have enjoyed a good run of form over the past three months, losing just once in their last eleven games across all competitions. In comparison with their Thursday’s opponents, Shkendija have already played three qualifying ties in order to reach this stage of the competition. They managed to eliminate the likes of Dacia Chisinau, HJK Helsinki and Trakai, losing just once in this term. The Macedonians lost 2-1 on the road at Trakai in the first leg of their Europa League third round qualifying tie, but bounced back with a 3-0 home win in the second leg. Shkendija followed this up with a comfortable 2-0 home win over Vardar Skopje in the opening round of their new domestic campaign. It was an impressive win if we are taking into account that Vardar are the reigning champions in the Macedonian First League, with 13 points more than Shkendija. Shkendija looked solid going forward over the past two months, scoring at least two goals in six of their last seven games across all competitions. Besart Ibraimi is definitely the player to watch for Shkendija as he was the First League’s topscorer last term with 20 goals under his belt and he already managed to score five goals in this season’s Europa League qualifiers for Shkendija.

There are no fresh injury concerns for Shkendija ahead of this trip.
