Prediction and odds for the game: Milan (8/11) v Lille (7/2)
We are backing the home win
When: Thursday, 5th November 2020, Kick-off 20:00
Where: The Stadio Giuseppe Meazza
On Thursday night, Milan host Lille at the Giuseppe Meazza, in Group H of the Europa League, as the home team look to continue their good season.
The Rossoneri continued a good recent run of form last time out by recording a 2-1 victory over Udinese. Milan are unbeaten in 24 competitive games dating back to last season. Their attacking prowess has played a key part in their recent form, as they have now scored at least two goals scored in their last 13 matches in all competitions.
Milan not only have a good recent general record, but they also have a good record in the Europa League, as the Rossoneri have now recorded five straight wins in European football’s secondary competition. Once again, the Italian team’s potency in front of goal has been on full display in the Europa League, as they have scored at least two goals in each of the five wins.
The Rossoneri have a good recent home record in the Europa League, winning six of their last eight matches at the Giuseppe Meazza.
The French team has made a promising start to their campaign so far. Christophe Gaultier’s team are currently second place in the French top-flight table, trailing champions and leaders PSG by just two points.
Lille head into this game on the back of a 14-game unbeaten run in all competitions dating back to February. A 1-1 draw with Lyon last time out in Ligue One was their third straight draw in all competitions. It was also the fourth straight Lille game in which both teams had scored.
The visitors may have taken four points from their opening two group games, but they have won just one of their last 12 games in the Europa League. However, before this season Lille had not featured in the competition since 2016 and this LOSC team looks to be in good shape under Gaultier.
Milan are in seriously good form heading into this clash and will be a big test for Lille’s recent unbeaten record. We are backing the home side to come out on top with a narrow victory. This game should be a high-scoring one considering Milan’s exploits in front of goal, in particular a certain Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has scored eight times in his last seven competitive appearances for the Rossoneri. With that in mind, we are also recommending over 2.5 goals scored at odds of 4/5.
Verdict: We are backing the home win at odds of 8/11 and/or over 2.5 goals scored at odds of 4/5. (All odds are taken from Bet365)[geosnippet id=3620]
