Our prediction for this Europa League match:
All eyes will be on Stadio Georgios Karaiskaki when Olympiakos and Milan face each other in the Group F derby. Olympiakos need to record a big win over Milan if they are to advance to the Europa League knockout stages, but that is easier said than done. The Thrylos did well to crush Dudelange 5-1 in their last home game of the process, but the Rossoneri are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the Greek side than their previous rivals. Milan are likely to adopt a defence-minded approach in Thursday’s football match and we are positive that under 2.5 goals will be scored in the Group F derby. The two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment, therefore, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. You should bear in mind that Olympiakos are undefeated in previous eight home games in the Europa League.
Highlighted Player (Miguel Guerrero):
Born in Toledo, Spain on 12 July, 1990, Miguel Angel Guerrero started his senior career at Albacete. He played just two matches for Albacete, but he made no less than 60 appearances for the B team between 2009 and 2011. In 2011 he joined Sporting Gijon B, but he started playing for the first team soon. On 19 August, 2012 Guerrero made his debut for the Asturians in Segunda Division, but he played no moer than 25 minutes in a 2-0 loss to Numancia. Five months later he scored his first goal for Sporting Gijon in a local derby against Real Oviedo. After scoring 16 goals in 89 appearances for the club between 2012 and 2016, the Spanish attacker signed a two-year deal with Leganes, newly promoted to the Spanish top flight. Guerrero has a contract with Leganes which expires on 30 June, 2018. During his youth career he played for the likes of Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid, Getafe, Toledo and Rayo Vallecano.
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.
