Betting Preview

AC Milan

AC Milan comes in this match as almost a certain winner of the play-off, after the match in Netherlands ended 1-1. The team missed a lot of opportunities, but will be looking forward a victory here on San Siro. Current performance rating of 50%, winning 3, losing 3 and drawing one. Most recent match from the Italian Serie A, was a loss to Verona with 1-2, which probably meant preserving focus and strength for this match. Overall record for AC Milan against this opponent: W1-D2-L3, winning none and drawing 2 in the last 5 meetings. Bet365 will give you betting odds @ 1.61 for the home victory, very rewarding for something we consider a ‘banker‘. A handicap victory with 2 goal difference will really bring you some profit, betting odds @ 2.68. Most likely player to score of course El Shaarawy and Balotelli, both priced to score first @ 4.75 (El Shaarawy scored 1st in the first match) and @ 1.90 at anytime.

PSV

PSV did not manage to win the game against AC Milan in the first leg and broke their 100% performance rating,recording a first draw in 8 games. The team recorded another draw this weekend in the Dutch Eredivisie, against Heracles, which probably means preservation of focus and strength for this match. The team will need a victory in order to advance, or in the best scenario a draw with 2 or more goals. However, despite the team’s good stats against AC Milan (W3-D2-L1 winning 3 of the last 5 games), it will be quite hard for the Dutch to pull a victory here. Last one was back in 2007 in a friendly that ended 0-0 and PSV won with penalties. Most recent encounter on this stadium in the Champions League, back in 2005, a match that ended 0-0. The betting odds gives by bet365 for PSV are @ 5.50, while the draw is @ 3.80. Tim Matavz is the favorite by the books player to score @ 7.50 as first, and @ 2.75 at anytime.

Verdict

Looking over the first match, AC Milan’s dominance was obvious, though the team missed a lot of opportunities to score. The home field advantage and the need for win, should be enough for the Italians to throw everything in this game and win their quotas for the Champions League groups. The betting odds given by bet365 are great @ 1.61 for normal victory and @ 2.68 for a handicap with 2 goal difference.
