AC Milan: Full of Confidence
AC Milan was far from their best at Stamford Bridge last week, with the Serie A team struggling to get on the scoresheet, and it proved to be an easy 3-0 win for Chelsea with Wesley Fofana, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Reece James on the scoresheet.
A man to watch for the home team will be Rafael Leao, who helped AC Milan win the Italian domestic league last season and is enjoying yet another successful campaign. They played one of the best games since the start of the season and beat Juventus 2-0 at the weekend. AC Milan will do everything to continue the race for automatic promotion in the knockout phase of the UCL, but the game against Chelsea will be tougher than expected so we won’t include them in our soccer picks and parlays.
Milan has not progressed to the knockout round of the Champions League since 2013-14, but they have won this competition on seven occasions, which makes them the second-most successful team in the history of the tournament behind Real Madrid. Mike Maignan, Alessandro Florenzi, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Junior Messias, Simon Kjaer, Davide Calabria and Alexis Saelemaekers are all sidelined for the hosts.
Chelsea: Great Form
The Blues faced no difficulties in a 3-0 win over the Wolves in the English Premier League. They are in great form, winning three games in a row across all competitions and keeping two clean sheets in the process. They are sitting fourth in the EPL standings with 16 points picked up in eight games.
New manager Graham Potter seems to be making an impact already, having inherited a talented squad capable of fighting for a top-four finish in the domestic league and making it out of the group stage in the EPL. He has brought a positive effect as Chelsea looks better and better. Under his command, Chelsea scores goals with an attacking approach, but they also look very organized at the back.
Still, Chelsea is struggling with away form in the new season. Namely, the Blues have lost three of their last four games on the road, so that gives their opponents additional motivation. Given their road struggles, you shouldn’t back them here if you’re betting online, but we do expect them to contribute on the scoresheet. N’Golo Kante remains a doubt due to a hamstring problem, while Fofana is definitely out with the knee injury that he suffered in the reverse match with Milan.
AC Milan vs Chelsea Head-to-Head
AC Milan was blown away by an impressive Chelsea team in the first group meeting between the two teams. Chelsea managed to build on this victory with an impressive 3-0 win over the Wolves. Chelsea won the last three mutual encounters between the two sides, scoring at least twice on each occasion. AC Milan managed to triumph and score at least two goals in five of the last six home games. Chelsea has won just one in their previous four road games, winning one in the process.

The Blues enter this clash as slight favorites at +135 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest soccer odds while the goal line is set at 2½.
AC Milan may have not been enjoying everything in recent weeks and a lengthy injury problem is likely to worsen the situation. This game may go in favor of a win for Chelsea, but we expect at least three goals on the scoresheet.
The two sides are fighting for a top-two finish and a win here might earn them a knockout spot. They are equal on points and they can’t afford to lose here. The two managers are not expected to go all in, so the first half will be a close one.
