Milan vs Atletico Madrid Prediction And Match Odds
The Dons of Italy, AC Milan will host the champions of Spain, Atletico Madrid for their Matchday 2 Champions League 2021-22 tussle. Two significant teams from two historic realms of world football will fray to procure their rank in the elimination round of the European tournament. It will be safe to call “Group B” the “Group of Death” of the season as Liverpool, Porto, AC Milan, and Atletico Madrid are arrayed in the same group.
Milan vs Atletico Madrid Prediction: Match Preview
Both Milan and Atletico failed to prevail in their opening Champions League fixture. The legends of AC Milan and Liverpool continued as the sides defied each other at Anfield for their first CL outing of the 2021-22 season. English-team Liverpool made a timely comeback to clamp a 3-2 win against the giants of Italy.
Atletico Madrid, on the other hand, settled for an uninspiring 0-0 draw against Sérgio Conceição’s Porto. As of now, Atletico Madrid are 2nd in the Group B points table with 1 point to their name. Stefano Pioli’s troupe are currently standing last in the points chart.
AC Milan are, undoubtedly, Champions League heritage. The Italians have won the top-tier European competition a total of 7 times, only bested by Real Madrid (13). However, over the years, Milan have fallen into the Europa League category. The Riches of Milan surely does not have the team to pull off a Champions League victory this season but they can surely inflict an upset or two. Having said that, Milan have customized a solid team in the past couple of seasons as they have signed match-winners like Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Oliver Giroud.
AC Milan’s recent modulation turned out to be fruitful for the side as they finished 2nd in the Serie A last season. AC Milan ended the 2019-20 season in 6th place with a total of 19 wins and 66 points to their name. Now coming back to the 2020-21 season, AC Milan ended the year with 24 wins and 79 points to their name.
AC Milan have thrived on their last season’s success as they have built on their positive momentum in Serie A 2021-22 as well. AC Milan are running unbeaten in their first 5 Italy top-tier league games. The Rossoneri have clasped 4 wins in their first 5 league outings as they are 3rd in the 2021-22 points table. Milan went neck to neck against a well-built Liverpool side at Anfield. Stefano Pioli was seen asking all the right questions to Jurgen Klopp’s men during their Match Day 1 encounter. No one will dare to write AC Milan off so early in the competition.
Diego Simeone will go down as the most legendary manager of Atletico Madrid’s history. The Colchoneros won their 2nd La Liga title under Simeone in the 2020-21 season. Cholo Simeone and his set of warriors simply do not know how to quit. Simeone has at least 2 world-class players in each department with Luis Suarez and Antoine Griezmann leading the attack.
Now, many will argue that Simeone plays “anti-football” or we can also call it the “Mourinho way”. The Spaniard is more defensive and offers almost nothing for their fans to cherish with their attack. However, this certain tac-tic has worked pretty well for the Red half of Madrid, their two league titles, and the 2018 Europa Cup triumph under Simeone says it all.
Atletico Madrid are currently running unbeaten in the LaLiga with 4 wins and 2 draws in their first 6 games. The Colchoneros are second in their respective league points table with a total of 14 points, only behind Real Madrid (16).
