Betting tips for Austria Vienna vs AC Milan - 14.09.2017
The Ernst Happel Stadion of the Austrian capital prepares to receive one of the historical of the European soccer, AC Milan, in party of the day 1 of the Group D of the Europa League. Austria Vienna gained their pass to this round after surpassing two harsh previous eliminatory ones. Cyprus's AEL Limassol was their first rival, yielding a goalless draw at home to end up winning in Cyprus by 1-2. Against the Croatian Osijek history was repeated: the Austrians won as visitors by 1-2, but fell defeated at home (0-1), qualifying by more goals scored in the opposite field.
The former German player Thorsten Fink trains the capital team, who currently occupies the 4th position in the Austrian Bundesliga, adding 11 points in the first 7 days, with a balance of 3 wins, two draws and two losses that leaves them 7 points leader of the competition, Sturm Graz. Like in Europe, the team adds more victories as a visitor (2) than as a local (1 in three games).
Midfielder Raphael Holzhauser, with 3 goals in 6 games (2 of penalti) is the top scorer of the team so far this season. Brazilian Felipe Pires, the scorer of the team, adds 2 in 7 games, the same as the strikers Christoph Monschein and Kevin Friesenbichler.
Europa League AC Milan needed to overcome two previous rounds to secure a place in this group stage. The Rossoneros have bet strongly to strengthen for the season 2017-18. The arrival of one of the most powerful Chinese groups in the world as new owners of the Rossoneri set has led to the team that has invested the most in what we have in the summer market, with Mateo Musacchio, André Silva, Hakan Çalhanoglu, Andrea Conti, Franck Kessie, Fabio Borini, Ricardo Rodríguez and Leonardo Bonucci. In total, 220 million euros invested, waiting to know if the cake is completed with the arrival of the madridista Alvaro Morata, an express request of the technician Vincenzo Montella that managed to break a drought of 5 years without titles, winning the Supercopia of Italy to Juventus in Doha. The team has confirmed the departure of Colombian Carlos Bacca, loaned this season to Villarreal and the arrival of former Fiorentina striker Nikola Kalinic.
The Italian team eliminated Craiova University (3-0 overall) and the Macedonian Shkendija (7-0) to get into this round. In Serie A, the team adds 6 points in the first 3 rounds, leaving it in 7th place. Montella won Crotone (0-3) and Cagliari (2-1) against the international team, falling last weekend in their visit to Lazio (4-1).
There is no precedent between both teams. The Italians are favorites, and the more we see that the Austrians play better as visitors than as locals. The forecast is that AC Milan will win this match by more than one goal.
