Our match prediction:
Sinisa Mihajlovic’s strikers need to find their killer instinct fast if Milan plan to keep his European dream alive. San Siro outfit are a fortnight without a single scored goal in the Serie A, and being six points behind a European spot, i Rossoneri need a triumph in their forthcoming clash against Lazio in order to keep pace with their local rivals, Inter. I Biancocelesti suffered a stunning defeat on home soil, as Sparta Prague produced a brilliant first-half performance that ensured them a place in the Europa League quarter-finals. Stefano Pioli’s charges are on a ten-game undefeated run on their travels in all competitions, with seven consecutive draws in the last seven away matches. Bearing in mind that six of their last ten encounters against Milan at San Siro ended in a draw, we believe the most optimal outcome of their upcoming football match should be the share of spoils, especially bearing in mind the current form of both teams.
Highligted Player (Diego Lopez):
Diego Lopez is a Spanish goalkeeper who plays for Milan in the Serie A. Lopez was born in Paradela on 3 November, 1981 and he played for Lugo during his youth career. He made two appearances for Lugo at senior level as well, but in 2000 he joined Real Madrid. The 196-cm-tall shoot-stopper played for both Real Madrid C and Real Madrid B and he made just two appearances for the first team during his first spell at Real Madrid. After spending five seasons at Villarreal (2007-2012) the Spanish goalkeeper played for Sevilla in the 2012/2013 La Liga campaign, but he made no more than eight league appearances for los Sevillanos. He returned to Real Madrid on January, 2013 and he quickly established himself as a first-team regular, replacing Iker Casillas in the starting XI. However, Real Madrid fans wanted to see Iker between the posts and, as a result, Diego Lopez was forced to join Milan in 2014. Lopez has only one cap for Spain national team.
