Match Preview

Matchday two of the 2018/19 Europa League (UEL) pits together two teams that have fallen from grace in their own respective leagues, but with one team favoured heavily over the other based on their domestic leagues’ respective coefficients.
Aside from being a key part of Milan’s progression, the match is the hosts’ chance of maintaining an impeccable record here, with the ‘Rossoneri’ losing only one of their last 17 home matches in European competition.
Deposed Greek champions Olympiakos played out a drab, goalless affair versus Betis in their own opener, maintaining their five-game unbeaten run in the competition. That was the first time they had failed to find the net in seven UEL games since February 2017.
The visitors have not experienced good fortunes when facing Italian sides in competitive matches, losing exactly half of their games (W5, D5, L10) against them.
Overall, Milan have the upper hand over their opponents (W1, D1), running out 3-1 winners in the last European clash, at the San Siro back in 1959.
Players to watch: Gonzalo Higuaín scored the solitary goal in the Rossoneri’s 1-0 win over F91 Dudelange in their first group stage game. The 30-year-old striker has scored three goals in his last three outings.
Omar Elabdellaoui has been pivotal in helping his Olympiakos side to three clean sheets in their last five league games. He also has a goal and an assist to his name this season.
Stat attack: Olympiakos are unbeaten in their last five games in the UEL (W3, D2).
Milan are undefeated in 21 of their last 24 UEL games (W15, D6, L3).
AC Milan have been winning at half time in 83% of their matches in all competitions this season.
