Sports Innovation previews the Champions League match between AC Milan and Atletico Madrid and offers team stats and betting tips with the latest odds.
AC Milan and Atletico Madrid lock horns at San Siro on Tuesday in search of a first Champions League win this season.
A 3-2 defeat to Liverpool in their opening match has left AC Milan bottom of Group B. Scoring points on Tuesday, therefore, is necessary or else qualification for the last-16 could become a daunting task. The Rossoneri, though, are unbeaten in Serie A and have won five of their six games, leaving them two points behind leaders Napoli in second place.
Atletico Madrid, meanwhile, failed to find the back of the net in a goalless draw with Porto for their opening fixture. The reigning La Liga champions have had a sluggish start so far and are in fourth place in the Spanish league. A red card has also featured in three of their last four games across all competitions.
Let’s have a look at the form of both sides and the stats from their previous encounters to come up with a reasonable betting prediction.
