Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Milan kick off their Europa League campaign with a match against F91 Dudelange. The Rossoneri did well to beat Roma in the Serie A derby and despite the fact that the Luxembourg side have been producing fine displays in the Europa League qualifiers, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the Serie A side, who are considered one of main favourites to win the Europa League trophy. Genaro Gattuso’s men are likely to go all guns blazing at F91 Dudelange in the opening match of their Europa League campaign and we predict that the Italians are going to prove their worth on the field. The underdogs are eager to claim yet another major scalp in the Europa League this season, but given the quality of the Serie A side, we do not believe that they are capable of giving fans yet another reason for celebration.
Highlighted Player (Dave Turpel):
Born in Luxembourg on October 19, 1992, David Turpel is a striker who plays for F91 Dudelange. Over the years Turpel has established himself as a one of the best attackers in Luxembourg and he is likely to play an important role in Dino Toppmoller’s team in the 2018/2019 Europa League campaign. David Turpel represents Luxembourg on the international stage and it has to be noted that he scored his first goal for the national team in the Euro 2016 qualifiers. Turpel found the net against Macedonia, but that did not help Luxembourg avoid defeat in Skopje. He scored his second foal for the Luxembourg national team in a friendly against Albania in June, 2017. Luxembourg eventually won the match 2-1. His preferred foot is right, whilst his main position is centre-forward. The 188cm-tall striker has 10 caps for Luxembourg U21 team, scoring one goal in the process.
Highlighted Team (AC Milan):
AC Milan are regarded as one of the biggest club in Italy. The Rossoneri compete in the Italian Serie A and they have won 18 domestic trophies. Speaking of the club’s European success, Milan have clinched seven Champions League (European Cup) trophies.
Milan were on the verge of beating Liverpool in the 2005 Champions League final, but the Premier League outfit came from three goals behind and eventually won the prestigious trophy on penalties. The Rossoneri play their home games at Stadio San Siro (80,018), the stadium that was opened in 1926. It is well known that Milan’s bitterest rivals are Inter and there have always been fireworks when the two local rivals face each other in the Derby della Madonnina.
Milan were founded in 1899 by a lace-maker from England named Herbert Kilpin and a businessman Alfred Edwards. Milan’s home kits are red and black and that is why the team’s nickname is Rossoneri (The Red and Blacks).
The likes of Alessandro Costacurta, Paolo Maldini, Franco Baresi, Roberto Donadoni, Dejan Savicevic, Frank Rijkaard, Marco van Basten, Ruud Gullit and Andrea Pirlo are the most famous footballers who have represented the San Siro outfit.
