Milan would be looking to get over their derby day loss to Inter Milan at the weekend when they take on Real Betis in this game. The Italians have started this season well in European competitions, however, their struggle in the league means that they would take this competition seriously again as they look to get back into the Champions League by any means.
Milan’s transfer drive is beginning to pay off. The players who couldn’t really blend in last season because they had come too early are beginning to create an understanding among themselves and that could help Milan get this trophy back to San Siro. They are currently top of their group, if they can secure yet another win in this game, they could move 5 points clear of their group rivals.
Their visitors are also looking to reach the round f 32, but the Spaniards could be struggling with their confidence now after they suffered back to back 1-0 losses in the La Liga. They were beaten by Atletico Madrid before the international break, before suffering another upsetting loss at the hands of Real Valladolid last weekend, this form could see them struggle against Milan.
Betis haven’t scored in 4 of their last 5 away games in all competitions and they may not offer too much work to Milan’s defence in this game.
The Rossoneri may have lost at San Siro at the weekend, but that clash came with the stands packed with Inter fans. In their own home games, Milan have won five and drawn one of their last six. They’ve scored at least twice in ever home game so far this season, including a 3-1 win over Olympiakos in their first European game at home this term. They won six of eight home games in this competition last season.
