Rijeka VS Milan

Rijeka and Milan meet at Nogometno igralište Rujevica, in a match for this stage of the UEFA Europa League (Group Stage).

Analysis of Rijeka

After 1 win, 1 draw and 3 losses, the home team is currently in the 4th position, with 4 points won. In the last match, they have tied (2‑2) in an away match against AEK Athens, after in the previous round they have lost (1‑4) at home against Austria Wien. In their last match, for the 1. HNL, they got a home loss against Hajduk Split by (1‑2). In the last 10 home matches Rijeka has won 2, tied 2 and lost 6. They haven't been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in all of the last 5 matches, but their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in all of the last 5 matches for this competition. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 5 times and have never been able to turn the score around.

Rijeka leaves for this game with a 1-2 home defeat against Hajduk Split, putting an end to the four games in a row without losing in several competitions. To advance in the competition, the Croats need to win this game and expect  AEK to be defeated by Austria Vienna. In this home game coach Matjaz Kek should play in the usual 4-3-1-2 privileging the organization of his block, exploring in most occasions the fast transitions. 
Josip Misic is a fundamental player in the tactical formation of the Croatian team, who is responsible for organizing and creating the offensive process. 
It seems that the coach can count on his usual players.

Confirmed Lineup: S. Sluga, D. Župarić, L. Zhuta, J. Elez, M. Vešović, M. Maleš, D. Pavičić, J. Puljić, Z. Kvržić, M. Gavranović, B. Acosty.

Analysis of Milan

The away team is currently in the 1st position, with 11 points won, after 3 wins and 2 draws. In the penultimate round, they have tied an away match against AEK Athens by (0‑0). In the last round, they have won a home match against Austria Wien by (5‑1). In their last match, for the Serie A, they got an away tie against Benevento by (2‑2). In the last 4 UEFA Europa League away matches Milan has a record of 3 wins and 1 draw.

In this competition, they haven’t lost any of the last 4 away matches. Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 9 matches for this competition.

The historical AC Milan leaves for this match with a 1-1 draw against the fragile Benevento, adding the third  match followed without losing in several competitions: the goals were signed by Kalinic and Bonaventura. Recalling that the Italians have already secured the top spot in Group D.
In this away match, Gennaro Gattuso should use a very similar strategy to the last game, that is, benefiting ball possession and organized attacks, especially through of the right aisle. 
André Silva is the great highlight of the Italian team in the Europa League with 6 goals. 
For this game, the coach can count on all the players at his disposal.

Confirmed Lineup: M. Storari, C. Zapata, G. Paletta, L. Antonelli, A. Romagnoli, D. Calabria, N. Zanellato, M. Locatelli, L. Biglia, André Silva, P. Cutrone.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario for this game will be the existence of several goals. We believe that this game will be very balanced and with great opportunities of goal, as the two teams put many players in the front when they leave for the attack, exposing in this way the backward sector. In addition, the home team will act in a very offensive way, aiming in this way the next phase of the competition, so betting in favor of an open game and with some goals is of great value.
