Milan - Chelsea - free football predictions for today.
AC Milan face a familiar foe in this match, who served them a 3-0 defeat on the road, new measures to deploy a more different tactical approach could be seen as they look to avoid a similar outcome.
While their loss to Chelsea left a bitter taste in their mouth, they unleashed their wrath upon an unsuspecting Juventus in their domestic league fixture by edging a 2-0 victory to put them three points behind Atalanta in a bid for a 2nd place finish, and at the moment they occupy 5th place with 20 points.
Another loss this time around could have a detrimental effect on their progression moving forward, home advantage this time around could be the turning point to actually walk away with a more resounding result in front of their fans.
Chelsea, with goal difference being the only difference that separates them from AC Milan as they sit on 2nd place with 4 points in the group stages level on points, and have displayed a dominant form thus far under new management.
In their domestic league, they thrashed Wolves 3-0 at home to secure three points, putting them in fourth place with 16 points, and with their return to the Champions League, confidence must be at an all-time high.
Snatching three points from AC Milan could see them being placed in 1st place in the rankings, treading carefully would be of importance to them as Pioli's men will have them on their radar, making it an equally tight counter for them in the process to come out with something positive.
As tricky as this encounter can get, a draw is definitely something that can be considered when these two sides meet, as this could turn out to be a tight encounter and picking a winner in this case will be solely based on luck as both sides could turn out to be unreliable.
Chelsea do have the upper hand against AC Milan in their past meetings, which is something that can't be disputed at this point, this time around they'll be faced with a huge task at hand and overcoming it would be a sigh of relief.
This game definitely screams of a draw and juggling the options available, I do fancy the chances of both teams finding the back of the net this time around with goals combined.
