      Tip Reasoning

      AC Milan still haven’t wrapped up a spot in the last 32 of the Europa League, but will their place in the top two come under threat on Thursday? The Rossoneri will be knocked out of the competition if they lose 2-0, following some recent slips in this competition. The Serie A side are seemingly switching their focus over to the league as they chase a top-four finish, but they’ll want to wrap up a place in the next round, which gives them another potential path into the Champions League next term.

      Olympiakos head into Thursday’s clash knowing that they need a resounding win to qualify, following their 3-1 loss to Milan at the San Siro earlier in this group. Real Betis have managed to wrap up a place in the next round, and the Spaniards are expected to finish top. They head to F91 Dudelange this week, so they’re likely to claim the result they need to take first place. That leaves everything on the line in this clash in Greece, but can the hosts pull off the 2-0 victory they need?

      Milan have faltered in Europe of late, but they responded with a 5-2 win over Luxembourg’s Dudelange in the last round of matches. They are doing better than expected in Serie A, thanks to poor displays from Lazio and Roma. However, issues with injuries have hit the Rossoneri, and their ability to stay in the fight for Champions League football after that is impressive. The only issue is that they’re going to need to rotate for Thursday’s encounter, as they can’t afford to lose major players at this stage of the season.

      Milan’s injuries are at the back in particular, and that’s bound to hit them in this trip. They’re weakened in defence, which will suit the hosts’ and their push for goals in this encounter. The Rossoneri have conceded far too many in the league this season, and with their focus pulled towards Serie A, we don’t expect them to look all that solid in this trip.

      Milan have seen both teams score in their last four European games, dating back to their last meeting with the Greek side. We expect the hosts to push forward given their position in the group, while this Milan side have had an attacking edge to them of late. The visitors have racked up 11 goals in their five European clashes this season, and we’re tipping them to find the net again here. We’re going for both teams to score, and a 1-1 draw, which will send Milan into the last 32.
