AC Milan vs Red Star Belgrade
Date: Thursday, 25 February 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.
Rossoneri are one of the best teams in Italy, and as it’s known, the Italian top flight is one of the top three leagues in the whole of Europe.
The team has been determined to get their old glory back, and as of now they are placed second in the Serie A, even above defending champions, Juventus.
Their attack has been spearheaded by the ageless Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and the seven-time European champions have surely targeted a Europa triumph this season.
They are at home for this second leg, and they had already scored two away goals in the reverse encounter.
Moreover, they are pitted against a team from the Serbian top flight – comparatively far weaker to that of their Italian counterparts.
Moreover, Stefano Pioli’s men also have a 100% unbeaten record against this rival over the years.
Likely, expect a Milan win this Thursday.

AC Milan vs Red Star Belgrade Prediction
Dejan Stankovic’s men will be forced to find the back of the net, as they had conceded two away goals. However, they are on the road, and are locking horns with one of the strongest teams in one of the best leagues in Europe.
They are also winless against Rossoneri, and other Italian squads.
On top of that, Pioli’s men have lost just four times at home this whole season – against Juventus, Atalanta, and Inter – three of the best teams in Italy, and the fourth defeat had come against Ligue 1 toppers Lille.
The Rossoneri are determined to make a deep run in the Europa, and rightfully count on them to be the better team on the pitch this Thursday.
Furthermore, with either team desperate to secure a ticket to the next round, their in-form offenses would be wreaking havoc all through the ninety minutes, and especially towards the end, chances are high for goals.
