          AC Milan vs Slavia Prague Match Prediction & Betting Tips

          The San Siro hosts AC Milan and Slavia Prague in the first leg of the Europa League Round of 16. Both sides are in pursuit of those above them in their respective domestic league and will be looking for a big win in Europe.

          Date: 07/03/2024

          Kick off time: 20:00

          Location: San Siro

          AC Milan finished third in the Champions League “group of death” and therefore had to compete in the Round of 32 against Rennes. Slavia Prague, on the other hand, finished top of Group G and advanced straight to the Round of 16.

          AC Milan currently sit third in the Serie A in 27 games. The Rossoneri have 17 wins, five draws and five losses, leaving them on 56 points, one point behind Juventus and 13 points behind Inter Milan.

          The Italian side has more experience in the Champions League, having won it on three occasions. However, in terms of the Europa League, AC Milan have only competed three times before this season, the furthest stage they’ve made it being the Round of 16 where they’ve crashed out to Manchester United and Arsenal.

          Slavia Prague currently sit second in the Czech First League. After 23 games, Slavia have 17 wins, five draws and one loss, leaving them four points off the top of the table.

          The Czech side have a little more experience in the Europa League, with four appearances before this season. Slavia Prague have had two exits at the Group Stage and two exits at the Quarter-finals, once to Chelsea and once to Arsenal.

          This will be the first meeting between AC Milan and Slavia Prague. However, AC Milan do have a good record against Czech sides. In ten meetings with Czech sides, Milan have six wins, three draws and one defeat, scoring 16 goals in ten games.

          Slavia Prague, on the other hand, have played an Italian side 14 times. However, Prague have only won on three occasions, also picking up three draws and eight losses, only scoring ten goals in 14 games.

          Recent Form

          In their last five games in all competitions, AC Milan have two wins, one draw and two losses.

          In the first leg of the Europa League Round of 32, Milan hosted Rennes. Ruben Loftus-Cheek opened the scoring in the first half for Milan and doubled the lead just two minutes into the second half. Rafael Leao joined him on the scoresheet giving AC Milan the 3 - 0 lead into the second leg.

          Back in the Serie A, Milan were handed a shock loss by Monza. A penalty from Matteo Pessina and a late first half goal from Dany Mota gave Monza the 2 - 0 lead at halftime. Milan’s Luka Jovic was sent off early in the second half but goals from Olivier Giroud and Christian Pulisic drew Milan level with two minutes to go. However, late goals from Warren Bondo and Lorenzo Colombo gave Monza the 4 - 2 win.

          The second leg of the Round of 32 saw Milan make the trip to France. Jovic was on the scoresheet this time for Milan along with Leao, but a hat-trick from Benjamin Bourigeaud gave Rennes the 3 - 2 win. However, Milan did still win 5 - 3 on aggregate.

          Leao opened the scoring for Milan in the third minute against Atalanta, but a penalty from Teun Koopmeiners drew Atalanta level before halftime. Despite having 20 shots with seven on target, Milan couldn’t find the back of the net and had to settle for a 1 - 1 draw.

          The last time out for AC Milan was a fiery affair against Lazio. Noah Okafor’s goal in the 88th minute was the only goal of the game in the 1 - 0 win for Milan over eight-man Lazio who had Luca Pellegrini, Adam Marusic and Matteo Guendouzi all sent off.

          In their last five games in all competitions, Slavia Prague have two wins, two draws and one loss.

          Mojmir Chytil gave Slavia Prague the lead in the first half added time, but Kenneth Ikugar equalised for Zlin with 20 minutes to go. Vaclav Jurecka saw red for Prague late on, but Slavia Prague held on for the 1 - 1 draw.

          Prague were back to winning ways next time out against Karvina. An own goal from Amar Memic gave Prague the lead and Chytil doubled their lead just a minute later. El Hadji Malick Diouf then added a third in the 80th minute to give Prague the 3 - 0 win.

          It was another 3 - 0 win for Slavia Prague, this time against FK Pardubice. Chytil grabbed a second half hat-trick in a game where Prague had 32 shots with 15 of those on target.

          In the Czech Cup Quarter-final, Slavia Prague hosted Sparta Prague. Ivan Schranz and Diouf gave Slavia the lead early in the second half, but a brace from Victor Olatunji took the game to 2 - 2 and extra time. Despite the late red card to Sparta’s Jaroslav Zeleny, Adam Karabec converted his penalty to give Sparta the 3 - 2 win.

          The most recent outing for Slavia Prague was another meeting with Sparta. Slavia could only manage two shots on target in the 0 - 0 draw, despite Sparta going down to ten men late on with the sending off of Angelo Preciado.
