AC Milan v Atletico Madrid Preview, Champions League, Wednesday 19th February 2014

AC Milan’s form has been so up and down this season you just cannot be sure on if they will win, lose or draw in any of their games. I predicted a win for AC Milan against Bologna at the weekend although I did expect more goals to be scored in the match. We were lucky to even see a goal as Mario Balotelli managed to score late in the game to make it 1 – 0. AC Milan did manage to sneak into the final stages of the Champions League and with the way they are playing I am not sure if they can manage to progress past the Spanish side who have been exceptional this season.

Atletico Madrid haven’t themselves had the best of weeks after losing twice to Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey without even scoring a goal and then also dropping points against Almeria who are struggling in 16th position in the Spanish league. If they did manage to even pick up one point in that game then Atletico Madrid would be once more gracing the top position in the league. They did bounce back at the weekend after smashing three goals past relegation battling side Real Valladolid after going two nil up in the first four minutes of the match.

AC Milan Team News:

AC Milan’s Mario Balotelli is still currently the clubs top scorer with having scored ten goals now in eighteen games. New boys Adel Taarabt played again after signing on loan from Queens Park Rangers and we also see Michael Essien make his debut against Bologna at the weekend.

Atletico Madrid Team News:

Atletico Madrid are missing a trio of players with the first being Spanish star Javi Manquillo who is currently missing with a neck injury. Also out is the Portuguese midfielder Tiago who is out with a bad wrist. The last issue is the Brazilian Filipe Luis who is suffering a thigh injury.

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

As above we do not have any previous games played between these two great clubs and Wednesday nights game will be the first for us to record. Atletico Madrid are the team who have been so much better this year and have scored plenty of goals. AC Milan themselves have not been playing to their expected potential are currently sit in 9th position in the Serie A League.

Surprisingly enough it is AC Milan who are the team in better form if looking at the last 5 games played, but overall Atletico Madrid are currently the better side with being joint top of the Spanish League with Real Madrid and Barcelona who are themselves top by better goal difference.

AC Milan v Atletico Madrid Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

This game on Wednesday evening promises to be an exciting spectacle for any neutral football fans around the globe. With AC Milan playing no where near their potential it leaves the Italian fans worried for their famous historic club. Atletico Madrid may of lost three games in the last five matches but they are still to be considered the more powerful side when these two clash tomorrow.

Atletico Madrid were knocked out of the Spanish Cope del Rey Cup in recent weeks after losing both home and away to Real Madrid without themselves even scoring a goal. Something which hasn’t usually been an option this year having so far scored fifty nine goals in twenty four games which is only ten less then Barcelona who we often see score plenty of goals.

So lets get down to some predictions for Wednesday nights game which I am looking forward to. The first things first that I must mention is I do strongly believe the Spanish side will come out victors here even though they are playing away from home. So the first one is for Diego Costa to score anytime and for Atletico Madrid to win. It may not provide the best of odds but with the way the Spanish striker is playing it could be considered as a dead cert. The other I am going for is a score draw and this is only because I am hoping AC Milan decide to come out of the tunnel and at least give it their best on the night and provide us an exciting match.
