Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Despite being regarded as favourites to beat AEK Athens at Olympiako Stadio Spyros Louis the Rossoneri played out a goalless draw with the Greek side in Athens. Anyhow, the Serie A side are with one foot in the knockout stages of the Europa League and they are only one point away from booking their place in the last 32. Milan aim to extend their unbeaten run in Group D and we predict that they will adopt a cautious approach in Thursday’s football match. Austria Wien, on the other hand, desperately needed a win against Rijeka and they managed to get one. The Violets sit in third place in the standings ahead of the trip to Milano, but they would be happy with one point from the match as well. Milan rolled over Austria Wien 5-1 earlier in the process, but there is every chance the two teams will share the spoils at Stadio San Siro.
