      AC Milan hit back at their critics – who included their own manager – when they won 4-1 at Sassuolo on Sunday night. The Rossoneri have had a difficult start to the season, but they came through a clash which has been a final blow for many Milan managers in recent years. Gennaro Gattuso looks safe from that fate for now, but he’s expected to deliver Champions League football this term. Their latest win has boosted those hopes, but can they keep their options open when they return to Europa League action this week?

      Milan meet Olympiakos this week, with the Greek side a potential rival for a spot in the last 32 of the Europa League. The Italians will know that this competition could be their back-door into the Champions League next season, should they need it. While they’re not going all out in the Europa League quite yet, their 1-0 win over F91 Dudelange has kicked things off in the right direction. The next test for Milan comes on Thursday, but can they get another three points?

      Olympiakos are the side who dumped Burnley out of this competition in the qualifiers, and they started with a 0-0 draw against Real Betis. So far, it’s not been a group blessed with goals. The visitors are likely to come here and set up to defend, given that their last four matches have seen three goals scored in total. Will they be able to hold off the Rossoneri, who are fresh from one of their most impressive attacking displays in months?

      Milan have been largely impressive since returning to the Europa League last year, winning five home matches from seven, keeping four clean sheets. They started this season with a win to nil, and after investing in their defence during the summer, they’ll be expecting a solid display at the back. The visitors haven’t got the greatest attacking record, after losing 1-0 at home to PAOK in the league at the weekend.

      History doesn’t point to an easy time for Olympiakos, given that Milan have won four of their five home ties against Greek opposition in Europe. They’re favourites to claim another victory, and their weekend success will leave them full of confidence going into this game. As a result, we’re backing a home win for the Rossoneri, and we see Olympiakos drawing a blank once again, as we’re going for Milan to win to nil here.
