The stats behind our AC Milan vs Slavia Prague predictions:

  • AC Milan have conceded in five of their last six European games.
  • Slavia Prague have never won an away game in Italy (one draw, seven defeats).
  • Rafael Leao has scored three goals in his last four major European appearances for AC Milan.

What can we expect from AC Milan?

AC Milan have been a bit of an odd team of late, which is what makes this such an intriguing tie. The Rossoneri have won just one of their last four games across all competitions, ending a three-match streak without victory by beating Lazio 1-0 at the weekend. Even then they could only break Lazio down once the hosts had been reduced to 10 men.

There was also a draw against Atalanta in Serie A, following on from back-to-back defeats. The first came against Monza in Serie A, but then AC Milan flirted with an exit from the Europa League. Leading Rennes 3-0 after the first leg of their knockout round play-off, AC Milan trailed three times on the night in France, eventually losing the leg 3-2. A Benjamin Bourigeaud hat-trick did the job on the night, piling some more pressure on Stefano Pioli.

There have been times this season where Pioli has looked in danger of losing his job, not least after they were thrashed by Inter Milan in Serie A early in the campaign. Even in victory, Pioli’s tactics are being picked apart and names are being thrown into the hat to replace him. Could a European run ease the pressure?

AC Milan vs Slavia Prague match tip

Rafael Leao to score anytime @ 7/4 by Sky Bet

AC Milan had a slow start to their European season with regards to goals, failing to score in each of their first three games in the Champions League group stage. But they have found their footing, as has Rafael Leao. The Portuguese forward netted in both legs of AC Milan’s Europa League knockout round play-offs win over Rennes, and in the 2-1 Champions League win over PSG. Three goals in his past four European games, that’s as many as he had managed in his first 25 European matches for AC Milan.
