AC Milan vs Rijeka Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Rijeka will be aiming to get their first points of their Europa League group D campaign when they travel to the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza to take on AC Milan on Thursday night. AC Milan managed a comfortable 1-5 victory on the road at Austria Vienna in their Europa League group opener thanks to a hat-trick from Andre Silva and two other goals from Hakan Calhanoglu and Suso. On the contrary, Rijeka lost 1-2 at home at the hands of AEK Athens, with their consolation goal being scored by Josip Elez. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news, match stats and odds all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

AC Milan should be able to grab an easy victory here after their thrashing 1-5 away win at Austria Vienna last time out in the Europa League. Rijeka looked poor against AEK Athens in their Europa League group opener, but their recent form has been much better. I’m expecting Milan to win here, but I’m also fancying Rijeka to get on the scoresheet.

AC Milan Preview

After a busy summer transfer window, AC Milan started their 2017/18 competitive season brightly, having won nine of their opening twelve fixtures across all competitions. Their three-game winning streak across all competitions ended at the weekend, as they lost 2-0 on the road at Sampdoria in the Serie A. During their recent winning run, AC Milan managed an impressive 1-5 away win at Austria Vienna in their Europa League group opener. This is Milan’s first appearance in the Europa League group stage since they reached the round of 32 in the UEFA Cup in the 2008/09 season. Milan have won all five of their European games this season, scoring 15 goals and conceding just once in the process. They have won their five competitive home games this season, scoring at least two goals in each of these. Domestically, AC Milan find themselves in sixth spot in the Serie A table tied on 12 points with Roma, already six points behind the joint leaders Juventus and SSC Napoli. Andre Silva scored a hat-trick against Austria Vienna last time out in the Europa League and he will definitely be looking to continue his goalscoring form.

AC Milan Team News

Luca Antonelli and Riccardo Montolivo are both doubts, but Andrea Conti is still out through a knee injury.

Rijeka Preview

Rijeka have won the Croatian 1.HNL title for the first time last season to book their place in the Champions League qualifiers. The Croatians did well to beat TNS 7-1 on aggregate and then drew 1-1 with Salzburg to qualify for the play-offs due to the away rule. However, they lost 3-1 on aggregate at the hands of Olympiakos in the play-offs and they have embarked on their third Europa League group stage campaign. They kicked off the group stage campaign with a disappointing 1-2 home loss at the hands of AEK Athens, conceding the second goal just on the hour mark. Their defeat against the Greeks was their only loss in the last six games across all competitions. They are currently on a three-game unbeaten streak, scoring two goals in two of these. Rijeka are currently on a six-game winless streak in the Europe, conceding at least two goals in four of these. Away from home, Rijeka are winless in their last five away games in the Europa League and have failed to score a goal in four of these. However, their recent away form has seen them win three and draw one of their last four away games across all competitions, scoring at least two goals in three of these.
