Analysis and forecast for the match of round 1 of the Champions League “Milan” – “Newcastle United” (09/19/2023)
The match of the 1st round of the Champions League “Milan” – “Newcastle United” will begin on September 19 at the San Siro stadium at 19:45 Moscow time. On the last round of Serie A, the Rossoneri lost in the derby against Inter by 1-5. Will they be able to rehabilitate themselves in front of the fans?
There is less and less faith in Abascal:
“Paris NN” – “Spartak”. Abascal, destroyer of hopes
The start of the season went well for the Milanese and nothing foreshadowed such a deafening fiasco. Newcomers Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Teyani Reynders and Christian Pulisic fit perfectly into the team, helping to win three Serie A games: against Bologna (2-0), Torino (4-1) and Roma (2-1) .
Veteran Olivier Giroud had a good performance leading the attack. The forward scored four goals and gave two assists. But not even the Frenchman managed to get his teammates to change the failed course of the match against Inter.
The 1-5 loss in the derby was a blow to the Devils, as it was the fifth consecutive derby the Vipers had won. However, the Rossoneri coach refused to apologize to the fans after the game.
Russian fans love these matches:
“Krasnodar” – “Dynamo”. Sparks will fly in all directions!
Stefano Pioli is sure that you have to apologize when you do something on purpose, and his players clearly did not want to lose five Inter goals. But the defeat will help the team focus on the 1st round of the Champions League, the specialist is sure.
Newcastle coach Eddie Howe also did not have a good start to the season: only two wins in five games. The Magpies beat Aston Villa (5-1) and Brentford (1-0). The defeats against rivals in the same category are alarming: Liverpool (1-2), Manchester City (0-1) and Brighton (1-3).
Will anxiety affect the guests’ game? They have very little experience in participating in European cups. And then there is the story of Sandro Tonali. Let us remember that the midfielder moved from Milan to Newcastle in the off-season. Fans can criticize the Italian, which will affect his psychological state.
Eddie Howe has complaints about the performance of the team’s defensive line. Only in the last round did the Magpies manage not to give in. In Milan they will have to endure the pressure from Giroud and Pulisic, who want to rehabilitate themselves from the defeat in the derby, it will be difficult.
Milan reached the semi-finals of the last Champions League, so the players have experience in important matches, which is extremely important for European competitions. Newcastle has not played in the Champions League for a long time, so the players will experience anxiety and increased pressure. The Rossoneri are very likely to win in 2.45.
Prediction and bets for the Champions League match Milan – Newcastle United on September 19, 2023
Milan are forced to rehabilitate themselves from the defeat against Inter. The home team has plenty of experience and the newcomers fit into the tactical scheme. Newcastle’s players have not yet been able to offer adequate resistance to rivals of the level of Manchester City and Liverpool. Olivier Giroud and Christian Pulisic are unlikely to miss two games in a row, so we will bet that the red and black will win by 2.45.
Tender: Milan victory in 2.45.
