Red Star Belgrade vs AC Milan Predictions
- BT Sport Extra
- Milan are likely to rotate ahead of this weekend’s derby
- The visitors have lost three of their last five
- Red Star are unbeaten in five Europa League games
Rotation to cost Rossoneri
AC Milan were deposed at the top of Serie A at the weekend, something which will give boss Stefano Pioli thought in Serbia this week. A top four finish is a must, while this is a golden chance to break Juve’s dominance. Could their Europa League ambitions suffer as a result?
The Rossoneri are already expected to make changes, likely rotating the front four who have helped them to success domestically this term. With Inter Milan to face at the weekend, it wouldn’t be a surprise for them to switch focus.
The visitors have lost three of their last five. Milan did wilt in the group stage, losing 3-0 to Lille before drawing away to the French side. That would be a boost for the hosts, who finished their group strongly.
Red Star were able to keep three consecutive clean sheets to finish the group. They were five games unbeaten after losing their opener, so we think they can hold off a weakened Milan.
We’re going with Red Star in the Double Chance market, with a 1-1 draw our correct score prediction.
