AC Milan vs Dudelange
Competition: UEFA Europa League
Date: 29 November 2018
Kick-off: 18:55 CET
AC Milan’s 1-1 draw in Seville three weeks ago kept them second in the group table, one point behind Betis, and level on points with third-placed Olympiakos. They have beaten the Greek side 3-1 in Italy, and will be visiting them in two weeks, on the last day of the group stage. The ideal scenario for them, is to be ok with losing by up to one goal in Piraeus. If they beat Dudelange, and Olympiakos lose at Betis, there will be a three-point gap between the two, and, as previously mentioned, they have beaten Olympiakos 3-1 in Milan, which means that even a defeat (by up to one goal) in two weeks would be enough for them to qualify. Be reminded that they had a hard time beating Dudelange in Luxembourg, they were at 0-0 until almost an hour into the game, when Gonzalo Higuaín scored the only goal of the match. Last weekend they drew 1-1 at Lazio, getting equalized in added time. They are 5th in Italy’s championship.
Dudelange scored their first goal in the group three weeks ago in Piraeus, against Olympiakos, but they still lost, 5-1. They have conceded 11 goals thus far, in four match, and seven of those were in the two games versus Olympiakos. Their target remains the same, earn at least one point in this group. It feels very hard to meet that target in Milan, but they’ll have one last chance in two weeks, when they host Betis. They are third in their championship, on 23 points, six behind leaders Jeunesse d’Esch.

AC Milan vs Dudelange: Prediction
Most-most probably, the overall goal difference in the group won’t make a difference if Milan finish level on points with Olympiakos (I doubt they’ll lose 3-1 in Piraeus), but either way, this is the Rossoneri’s chance to… entertain their public, play the way they play in the last 20 games of their home match against Olympiakos, when they went 3-1 up from 0-1 down, scoring all three goals between the 70th and the 79th minute.
