Olympiacos vs. AC Milan / Europa League – When it comes to this match in the last round round of Europa League, the Greek Olympiacos needs a victory with at least two goals difference over Milan for placement in the second place of Group F, as well as placement in the knockout stage. Namely, Olympiacos currently has three points less than “Rossoneri”, while they were defeated with 3-1 in their first duel at San Siro.

On the other hand, multiple Greek rivals have recorded a home draw and a guest defeat in their two duels with Betis, while they in both occasions celebrated over Dudelange, and thanks to these points they are still competing for placement in the knockout stage of Europa League. However, they are aware that it will not be easy for them to easily get to the necessary victory of two goals difference over Milan, but they also have to take the risk in this duel, and start very offensively from the first minute at San Siro.
Otherwise, Olympiacos has after the latest four wins and two draws in the championship taken over the third place on the table and they have just one point less than the second Atromitos, while the leading PAOK has eight points more. However, now all their thoughts are completely directed at this defeat with Milan, where coach Martins will certainly send his most powerful forces on the field, except for the injured strikers Christodoulopoulos and Hassan and centre-back Meriah.
Probable lineups Olympiacos: Jose Sa – Torosidis, Cisse, Vukovic, Tsimikas – Bouchalakis, Camara – Elabdellaoui, Fortounis, Podence – Guerrero
When it comes to the guests from Milan, they are also awaiting this duel with Olympiacos in a good form, given that they experienced only one defeat in the last nine games, and that was in the championship by the leading Juventus, while they celebrated five times with three draws. And the last of these draws happened just last weekend in Serie A, when they only played 0-0 at home against Torino, which is certainly worrying to their coach Gattuso before this difficult hosting in Piraeus.
However, “Rossoneri” can even lose with one point difference in this match, so they will probably be very careful and will wait patiently for their chances from the counterattack. Especially because coach Gattuso is still having a lot of problems with absences, given that their defenders Romagnoli, Musacchio, Caldara and Strinic, and midfielders Biglia and Bonaventura are all injured, while Gattuso also announced that he will rest some players which are normally standard in the championship.
Probable lineups AC Milan: Reina – Calabria, Zapata, Rodriguez, Laxalt – Bakayoko, Bertolacci, Calhanoglu – Castillejo, Higuain, Borini
Olympiacos vs. AC Milan PICK
Given that the guests from Milan can even lose with one goal difference and still stay in second place, we believe that they will knowingly leave the initiative to the host Olympiacos, which on the other hand has no choice than to start very offensively from the first minute and try to win in order to get in the knockout stage of Europa League.
