AC Milan vs Manchester United, Europa League 18.03.2021
European giants AC Milan and Manchester United meet at the San Siro on Thursday evening for the second of their Europa League last-16 tie.
They played out an interesting 1-1 draw in the first leg at Old Trafford late equaliser for Milan.
This sets us up for an potentially interesting return leg here and we will take a look at the betting tips for the game as offered by Helabet bookmaker review.
With the Serie A slowly but surely slipping out of their grip following their home loss to Napoli at the weekend, this competition has acquired a renewed significance within the Rossoneri rank and file. Matteo Politano’s lone goal for Napoli at San Siro coupled with Inter’s win over Torino means AC Milan are now nine points behind their neighbors in this battle for the Scudetto.
Despite their struggles and injury concerns, they did well to secure the draw at Old Trafford. They dominated possession for long stretches and created enough chances before salvaging the draw with virtually the last kick of the game with a Kjaer header that United keeper Dean Henderson could probably had done better to keep out but couldn’t.
Their home form is nothing worth writing home about, having failed to win any of their last four matches here at the San Siro. Pioli will need more from his troops if they are to save face from the ignominy of watching their bitter rivals coasting to the Serie A title while they end up with nothing.
United missed several glorious chances to put the sword to a battling and wounded Milan team in the first and they paid the ultimate price with the late equalizer which came with quite literally the last piece of action.
They followed this game with a solid 1-0 win against West Ham which not only calmed nerves about a top four finish but also extended their unbeaten streak across all competitions to 13 matches and highlighted their recent improvements on the defensive end.
Solskjaer’s will be quietly confident going into this game. His charges have reserved some of their best performances this season away from Old Trafford with visitors unbeaten in their last 12 on the road and boasting clean sheets in their last four – which augurs well for them given Milan’s recent drought at home.

AC MILAN VS MANCHESTER UNITED BETTING PREDICTIONS
On the face of it, Man United’s away performance juxtaposed with Milan’s recent struggles at home might point to a possible triumph for the Red Devils. That’s easier said than done though. Milan will not be dishing out any early Easter gifts for the visitors. They will need to put the work in to get anything from this game. With Milan holding serve from the first leg, United have no option but to attack from the start. We anticipate an all-out attacking encounter here and we fancy United to get their first goal of the match from the 16th minute or later @ 1.53 as our first betting tip here.
With either side set to welcome back key players from injuries, we anticipate a fast paced game with plenty of goal mouth action on both ends. The corners market comes to mind in view of this and we fancy there to be plenty here. For our final tip we are therefore going for Over 9.5 corners @ 1.72.
