Today, the focus will be on the matches from the Champions League, and the derby of the evening is played at “San Siro” between Milan and Borussia Dortmund.
Milan should never be written off in the Champions League
Recently, Milan has entered a period of poor results and started to drift away from the top. However, with their victory over PSG in the last round, the “Rossoneri” got back in the game for one of the top two spots in the group. Now they face another tough match and cannot afford a slip-up as they play against their direct competitor. In the first match in Dortmund, they played to a draw, but Milan created excellent chances and showed that they are not inferior to the opponent. Pioli has a significant problem with injured players and will not be able to count on star player Rafael Leao, but the good news is that Chukwueze and Loftus-Cheek are returning for this match. The home field will be an advantage, but also the fact that Milan always knows how to surprise in the Champions League when it’s hardest and least expected, so the seven-time European champions should never be written off.
Dortmund leads the group
Borussia Dortmund had a poor start to the Champions League season, earning just one point in the first two rounds, but then followed up with two victories against Newcastle. They are currently the group leaders, which is somewhat surprising, but now two crucial rounds are coming up. A win in this match would secure their place in the next phase, but a draw would also be a favorable result for the “millionaires” on this away game. However, it won’t be easy for Borussia at “San Siro”, especially considering that Milan plays their best in the Champions League. A loss would complicate their position, so they will need to aim for a win in the last round against PSG.
Our Betting Suggestion
This is one of the most evenly matched groups in recent years, and after four rounds played, all four teams have a chance to advance to the next phase. Borussia Dortmund is the leader with 7 points, while Milan is in third place with two points less. The derby of the round is unpredictable, but this is a duel between two teams that play open and offensive football, so we expect a match with goals on both sides.
